AQUASCAPE, INC. LAUNCHES REVOLUTIONARY RAINXCHANGE SYSTEM
Aquascape, Inc. is proud to announce the official launch of its RainXchange System for capturing, filtering, and re-using rainwater. The RainXchange System combines a recirculating decorative water feature with a sub-surface rainwater harvest storage system.
Ed Beaulieu, Chief Sustainability Officer for Aquascape, was instrumental in developing the prototype filter for the companyâ€™s rainwater harvesting system. â€œTraditional methods of harvesting rainwater do not add beauty or value to a home or office setting. Weâ€™ve created a filtration system used in conjunction with a decorative water feature that captures, filters and houses rainwater run-off for future use,â€ states Beaulieu. The system also reduces flooding, which is typical when heavy rains follow a period of drought.
Beta testing for the RainXchange System was conducted in key areas across the country before being introduced to the market. The system debuted at both the EpcotÂ® International Flower & Garden Show and at the Chicagoland Flower & Garden Show with an overwhelming response. The first residential system was installed and tested earlier this year by Aquascape and a team of Certified Aquascape Contractors (CAC) in drought-stricken Grantville, Georgia.
When used in conjunction with Aquascapeâ€™s AquaBlox Matrix, the RainXchange System can earn up to 12 LEEDÂ® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) credit points, making it an ideal residential and commercial application for managing stormwater in green building projects. The RainXchange Specification Calculator makes it easy to estimate a properly sized system and Aquascapeâ€™s technical services department is available to assist with projects as needed. Adds Beaulieu, â€œWe expect our rainwater harvest and filtration system to be a profitable entity that landscape architects and contractors can add to their existing service and product lines while offering environmental options for consumers to offset increasing water restrictions.â€ The Aquascape RainXchange System will be showcased this October at the ASLA (American Society of Landscape Architects) Expo in Philadelphia and the WaterSmart Innovations Conference in Las Vegas. In November the system will be displayed at the Irrigation Association show in California.
