Rainwater Pillow

rain-water-pillow.jpgThe Rainwater Pillow is a new and fairly strange rainwater collection and storage system capable of holding thousands of gallons of water, as opposed to the 50 that a rain barrel can hold. Because of its giant pillow shape, it is designed to fit in a crawl space or under a deck, so there is no digging or drilling necessary like there would be for a cistern. This feature and its sheer water holding capabilities move the product toward establishing a convenient, long-term water source (unfortunately, not one for drinking). This is a far cry from the small-time "water a flower bed" action that a rain barrel can provide.

The pillows are available in kits which come with the pillow, filter, pump, fittings, and other necessary items. The 1000 gallon pillow kit costs $2500, the 2000 gallon kit costs $3500, and the 3000 gallon kit costs $4200.
