Only Pioneer Provides Rainwater Systems with Long-Lasting Storage


California Senate Bill No. 558, or as it was first known as Prop 72, passed and was approved by the Governor on January 31, 2018. This act added and repealed Section 74.8 of the California Revenue and Taxation Code to exclude property taxes to new construction of rainwater harvesting systems.


Starting January 1, 2019:


– Newly created rainwater systems can be excluded from property tax reassessment with filing a claim

– New homes built with rainwater systems can apply for this exclusion, as long as it’s the first home purchaser and it hasn’t been yet claimed

– Tax incentives for rainwater systems are being offered to enhance the state’s water conservation goals

> Go to California Senate Bill No. 558, Prop 72


The Bill is effective January 1, 2019, to promote the use of rainwater systems as a sustainable water source for both homes and businesses. The property tax exclusion applies only until the building changes ownership however the first purchaser of a home with a rainwater system installed can also claim the exclusion when the owner-builder incorporates the system. This applies to the first homeowner as long as the owner-builder had never intended to occupy or use the building, and did not yet claim the exclusion so that the purchaser buys the building before it’s assessed to the owner-builder.


To claim the property tax exemption for new rainwater systems, taxpayers must file a claim with County tax assessors and provide any documentation necessary to identify the value attributable to the rainwater system, including any rebates. The assessor evaluates the claim and subtracts the value of the rainwater system from the purchase price to determine its new value for property taxes.


This bill specifies that a “rain water capture system is a facility designed to capture, retain and store rain water flowing off a building rooftop or other man-made above the ground hard surface for subsequent onsite use.”


Rainwater systems with Pioneer Water Tanks work well in California since they can be installed with options to add functionality to your systems, like the addition of firefighting nozzles and adapters. Pioneer Water Tanks store the rainwater within the BPA-free, NSF-61 certified for drinking water AQUALINER® Fresh tank liner. The liner storing the water is then protected within the Zincalume Steel tank body that is certified to withstand fire immersion and lasts without corrosion 200% longer than galvanized steel.


Pioneer Water Tanks are the longest-lasting rainwater storage tank, and we include our 20-year warranty to back it. Our systems are delivered in a crate for onsite installation, even in the most rural areas in California.

From the SWRCB Website:

The California Water Code, section 1201, defines water subject to appropriation and authorizes the State Water Board to grant permits for water flowing in any natural channel. Rooftops are not a natural channel, therefore harvest of rainwater from rooftops does not require a water right permit. The State Water Board encourages methods of water collection or diversion, such as rooftop rainwater harvest, that reduce demand on streams and reduce water quality problems associated with stormwater runoff.

    Only Pioneer Provides Rainwater Systems with Long-Lasting Storage


    The Lower Colorado River Authority offers rebates for rainwater systems to qualifying customers. The LCRA may provide rebates for 50% of the total cost, up to $600, per residential property for upgrades to conserve water and increase efficiency.


    Rebate eligibility for LCRA customers is based on:


    – Being a Lower Colorado River Authority domestic use customer.

    – You are a resident who receives water from one of these LCRA water customers. The customers of the City of Austin are eligible for rebates from Austin Water. See the Rebate from Austin Water

    – The rainwater system must be for non-potable use.

    – The system must have a storage capacity of 100 gallons or more.

    – Receipts and photos of the equipment up for the rebate must be submitted with the application.


    > Go to the application



    The rainwater harvesting system rebate program is a part of the Highland Lakes Watershed Ordinance to protect water quality as well as is an initiative to respond to stormwater pollution. Rainwater harvesting systems capture rooftop rain runoff for later sustainable use, instead of letting it run off and become possible stormwater pollution. Using a rainwater system for domestic purposes also reduces utility water use that can help with water availability.


    On average, a rainwater system can collect 600 gallons of water per inch of rain for every 1,000 square feet of rooftop collection space. The State of Texas is one of the most encouraging state governments for rainwater systems with House Bill 3391 (2011). HB 3391 is one of the most far-reaching and comprehensive pieces of legislation regarding rainwater harvesting in recent years. Link to Bill


    All rainwater collection/harvesting equipment is exempt from sales tax, within the State of Texas, per Section 151.355 of the Texas Tax Code. Link to Tax Code. To claim this exemption, the purchaser must furnish a Tax Exemption Application Form 01‐339 to the supplier at the time of purchase. An itemized receipt must be submitted with the application within 60‐days of installation. The receipt must include the date, vendor name and address, the amount paid, and capacity of the tank.

      > Go to the Application



      There are a few requirements for systems including:


      1. Systems’ overflow must be designed to prevent erosion or localized flooding. Pioneer Water Tanks include the largest overflow on the market with a six-inch diameter to prevent incidents.


      2. Rain barrels and tanks should be elevated at least 6 inches off the ground. Pioneer Water Tanks include a sand pad or cement ring beam option that qualifies for this requirement.


      3. If a rainwater tank is installed, it must have a first flush system designed to divert and discard the first 10 gallons for every 1000 square foot of rain catchment area.


      4. Water storage tanks need to be opaque or painted to prevent light from entering. With a Pioneer Water Tank, this is never an issue since it’s a bolted tank with the water protected within the five-layered Aqualiner tank liner. The liner has a 65-year lifespan and is NSF/ANSI 61 certified as well as BPA-Free.


      5. Rain storage openings should be covered with screening small enough to prevent mosquitoes. The filter basket that is included with a Pioneer Water Tank has a thousand count mesh that goes beyond requirements to prevent mosquito and other contamination.


      6. The application for the rebate must include a detailed drawing of the catchment vessel location.


      7. The rebates can be used for non-potable systems only and cannot be used for drinking.


      8. The rainwater systems cannot be connected to NBU’s potable water system.


      9. A final inspection of the rainwater storage tank by an NBU Resource Conservation Representative is required to qualify.

        Only Pioneer Can Protect Rainwater Clean Enough to Drink


        Rainwater can be collected off of a rooftop as a sustainable water source and stored in a Pioneer Water Tank for later use. Depending on the system set up, the rainwater can be used for domestic and in some cases, as the primary drinking water source. Rainwater systems vary from a simple barrel set up to completely supplying water for a building or home and can be used as a water source for firefighting. There are even rainwater systems set up as a wildlife water source or as a stormwater management technique.


        Using a rainwater system is beneficial because it reduces demand on existing water supply, and reduces runoff, erosion, and contamination of surface water. When designing a rainwater system, the first step is to decide the goal and use of the water.


        Storing the rainwater in the right capacity and properly is key to avoiding contamination and overflow. Rainwater tanks must be properly screened and secured without allowing sunlight into the tank. Rainwater storage tanks must have an inlet, outlet, overflow, vent, and inspection or service port.


        Pioneer Water Tanks were engineered to protect water from the very start. The entire design and quality materials are chosen as the best possible way to keep water fresh and clean.


        – The AQUALINER® Fresh tank liner inside of the tank stores the rainwater safely. The NSF 61 Certified, Antimicrobial, BPA-Free tank liner has a 65-year lifespan and is covered by our warranty. (Learn  More)


        – The V-LOCK corrugation style of the tank body is unique to Pioneer Water Tanks and provides the ultimate strength and durability. The V-LOCK corrugation allows for the tank liner to be attached down the tank walls to alleviate the stress to the liner from the weight. Most tank liners are attached only at the top which can lead to stretching and breakdown of the liner – which is why Pioneer Water Tanks attach our liner to the corrugation. (Learn More)


        – All of our standard accessories, as well as our optional additions, are to improve the quality of rainwater stored. This includes filtering rainwater through a thousand count mesh filter, and including an inlet, outlet, overflow pipe and vent specified for drinking water storage tanks.



        The quality of the rainwater tank determines how well the water will be stored for later use. Using a poly tank, for example, will mean that it shouldn’t be used as a drinking water source because of leaching but it should still be properly sealed to prevent mosquitos. There are places like Hawaii that see cases of diseases from water contamination including Leptospirosis. Preventing contamination should be the primary goal of your rainwater tank with filtration post-storage if used as a drinking water source.


        Pioneer Water Tanks are engineered as the top-tier rainwater tank to protect your water supply from contamination. They are implemented worldwide for their longevity and quality of storage that is proven to keep your water fresher for longer. If you would like to store rainwater in a large capacity, get started with your local Pioneer Water Tanks accredited dealer for your best price.

              Watermark Rainwater Harvesting


              Serving Santa Cruz County and Beyond with Sustainable Water Systems


              The Watermark Rainwater Harvesting team provides systems for residential and commercial buildings in Santa Cruz County and beyond. The goal at Watermark is to design and build sustainable water systems that are efficient and easy to maintain.


              “We are committed to helping our customers Design, Build and understand the benefits of Rainwater Harvesting and Greywater systems while creating and inhabiting a resilient sustainable environment for the future.” – Mick Merrell, owner of Watermark Rainwater Harvesting


              A recent project of Watermark can be found at the Central Home Supply store in Scotts Valley, California. The system uses the metal building roof as the collection space with a gutter system that conveys the rainwater into the 3,000-gallon capacity Pioneer Water Tank.

              The rainwater can be used for irrigation for Central Home Supply and is a clean, renewable water source. With only one inch of rain on a small, 2,000-square foot roof, you can collect around 1,200 gallons of clean rainwater. There are many residents in Santa Cruz County that collect a lot more capacity during the rainy season so that they can use it for the rest of the year.

              One of the initial calculations that Watermark provides is the estimated about of rainwater that can be collected from a building roof.



              Santa Cruz County recommends using rainwater systems as a sustainable water source. A building permit isn’t required in Santa Cruz County for rainwater systems if the following situations are in place:


              –  The system is only used for outdoor, non-spray irrigation purposes
              –  The rainwater storage tank has a capacity of less than 5,000-gallons
              –  The ratio of height to diameter (or width) of the rainwater tank doesn’t exceed 2 to 1.
              –  The rainwater harvesting system doesn’t require power. (Gravity alone can usually supply enough pressure to 5,000-gallon systems).
              –  The system doesn’t mix the rainwater with a different water source like utility water.

              Watermark Rainwater Harvesting has a lot of experience working with the County Building department requirements for rainwater system permitting if needed. They can supply an optional engineer-stamped package for the permit where required.

                Supplying Rainwater Harvesting Systems with Clean Storage


                The size of a rainwater tank depends on the average annual rainfall in your area, the rooftop collection area and the capacity needs of your household. It’s also important to research the local authority regulations on water tanks, including permitting requirements.


                There are resources such as the Current Results website that break down rainfall averages by State, and then by major city:




                US Climate Data by State:



                Local rainfall data is also sometimes provided by the County or public education colleges in the area if you require more detailed, accurate data. It’s safe to say that rainwater systems should prepare for excess and a recess of rainfall in all cases, with enough capacity to hold the rain in changing the weather.


                The basic equation of calculating how much rainwater you can collect off of your roof is the catchment area (ft 2 ) multiplied by the rainfall depth (inches of rain) multiplied by a 0.623 conversion factor.

                There are many factors that affect this, including what materials the roof is made of, the slope of the roof, and the rate of the rainfall. The Texas AgriLife Extension Office has created an extensive spreadsheet calculation that breaks down rainwater collection by the month.


                The capacity needs of your household or business depend on a lot of factors, including what this will be a water source. If the drinking water system is also being replaced by rainwater, the capacity needs should provide for the longest anticipated time without rain with a backup plan for if it ever goes dry. The average water-conserving household will use between 20 and 25 gallons per person, per day – but this estimate goes as high as 80 to 100 gallons per person, per day.

                The basic rule for sizing a rainwater system capacity is finding the volume of water that equals or exceeds domestic end uses or the water demand. If the household is using a utility water system, water usage is easier to gauge based on past billing. Irrigation typically takes 40% of water, but it depends on your specific location and general needs. The Texas Water Development Board gauges that irrigation can take up to 60% of water usage during peak summer months.


                One rough estimation method for storage capacity is to size the tank to meet the quarterly demand or a three-month period. If you can take three of the highest water usage months’ needs, that can be a rough estimate for a residential system. Commercial systems should be more detailed to provide for the sustainable goals set forth for the system.

                Another capacity estimation method is to look at the rainwater system like a monthly checkbook balance. The volume captured every month is added to the previous water capacity “balance” and the water usage is subtracted. This system would require an initial volume of water in the tanks before the system is put into place since it relies on collecting rainwater to replace the water used.


                It’s recommended to involve rainwater or irrigation professional with rainwater systems above 500-gallons. Only an accredited professional will understand the exact calculations and requirements to ensure a safe rainwater system to replace an existing water system. Pioneer Water Tanks America only works with accredited professionals with a proven project history.

                  Ready to Store Rainwater for Later Beneficial Use


                  Rainwater harvesting is one part of the Texas State Water Plan by the TWDB (link) as an alternative water source. Rainwater harvesting helps to alleviate the strain on utility water as well as help managing stormwater, by putting it to later use. Since rainwater collection is a solution for the state as well as on many local levels, rebates and tax incentives are very common in Texas. The Texas Tax Code also exempts rainwater harvesting equipment and supplies from state sales tax (Texas Tax Code §151.355).


                  View Section 151.355 of the Texas Tax Code (link). In order to have your system components be sales-tax-free, you must fill out a Texas Tax Exemption Application Form 01-339 and give it to the supplier at the time of purchase.


                  In Austin, Texas the rebates available for equipment as well as the installation of a rainwater system for a home or business are up to $5,000 per qualifying site. For rainwater systems with water storage tanks with 500-gallon capacity and larger, the project must be pre-approved with the City of Austin to qualify for the rebate.

                  You must meet all of the eligibility requirements to be able to claim this rebate. The system needs to be installed, and the application submitted with an itemized, dated, paid-in-full receipt with the vendor contact information. Commercial rainwater systems need to also include an IRS W-9 form. The rebate checks take on average six to eight weeks to be mailed out.


                  Checklist for rainwater systems that have a 500-Gallon capacity or more

                  •  Meet all of the City of Austin eligibility requirements

                    Only Pioneer Keep Your Rainwater Clean Enough to Drink


                    The City of San Marcos, Texas encourages rainwater harvesting as a solution to supplementing utility water, as a renewable water source. The City offers up to $5,000 in rebates for purchasing rainwater system components and installation costs.


                    Rainwater harvesting conveys rain from a roof of a building, into a gutter system, implements pre-tank filtering and then storing it for later beneficial use. Rainwater is soft water with a neutral pH that helps plants grow, and is exempt from drought restrictions. Collecting rainwater reduces erosion around a building, as well as helps keep some rainwater from turning into polluted stormwater that plagues San Marcos with flooding.

                    The rebate amounts to $0.50 per gallon of storage capacity for non-pressurized systems and $1 per gallon of storage capacity for pressured systems. The City rebate can’t exceed more than half of the total system cost with a lifetime maximum rebate amount of $5,000.

                    Rainwater systems are sales-tax free in Texas
