We’ve made rainwater harvesting simple. Sometimes you want a cistern that’s just a little bit bigger than your current rain barrel. Or maybe your budget doesn’t allow for a full, customized rainwater harvesting system.
If these are your situations, then our Raincache KIT and Raincache BUILD programs are perfect for you. The cistern sizes in the Raincache systems range from 500 gallons to 2500 gallons.

Is the Raincache program right for me?
- You want something larger than a rain barrel but you don’t have a lot of space to devote to a large rainwater cistern.
- You are on a limited budget for a rainwater system.
- You have existing gutters and a downspout where you want the rainwater cistern located.
- You have adequate access from the street to the cistern location.
- You don’t want a long process of scheduling a consult, getting a custom system estimate, and finally getting the system installed. The Raincache system simplifies all of that so that you can pick the appropriate system and get it installed fast.
Raincache Program FAQ
Rainwater harvesting is the collection of precipitation from a surface to reuse at a later time. Most rainwater harvesting systems use roofs for the collection surface, but some rainwater harvesting systems do collect rainwater (or stormwater) from pervious surfaces.

We have created the Raincache Rainwater Harvesting KIT and BUILD packages in order to streamline the process of figuring out what you want or need, to the ultimate step of system installation. While these packages are intended for specific situations, we do specialize in custom rainwater harvesting system.
So if you want to locate the cistern in a place where the ground slope is greater than 4% or maybe you know you want to connect multiple downspouts, don’t worry… just give us a call or submit a consultation request form and we will schedule a onsite consultation with you.
While your system quote will be more expensive than the Raincache packaged prices, you will be getting a more efficient rainwater collection system or possibly we can solve the issue you had with just imagined the possibilities of the rainwater cistern location on your property.
You certainly can call us and schedule a free consultation if you are in the Austin area but since we are investing extra time into your design and estimate, the system quote you receive will most likely be more expensive than the Raincache KIT or BUILD packages. We have tried to create a design process for the Raincache packaged kits that you can do yourself, at your leisure. Then once you determine the best rainwater system package for your property and situation, you can simply order the system, schedule the installation date, and you’re done.
If you know your budget is limited for a rainwater harvesting system, then the Raincache packaged kits are perfect for you. This way you are spending your money on getting the largest cistern available, rather than also paying for the time for the consultation and estimate creation.
So save yourself time and money by going through the Raincache design process defined on our website and then placing your order for a KIT or BUILD packaged system.
For people living in central Texas, many cities in that area offer rainwater harvesting system rebates. The cities of Austin, San Marcos, Sunset Valley, and Round Rock all offer rebates with Austin and San Marcos offering rebates up to $5000. Learn more about central Texas rainwater rebates.
The simple answer is… as large of a cistern that your budget allows. In central Texas, rainfall is feast or famine, so a larger cistern helps to capture more rainwater during the “feast” times of the year so that you can use it during the “famine” times.
