 The Original Rainwater Pillow is an above-ground rainwater-harvesting system that uses tanks built to fit wasted space that exists in many homes and buildings, such as in crawl spaces, under decks, in parking garages, basements and behind industrial buildings. Water is collected through gutter downspouts and channeled to a pre-filter; it can be used for irrigation, toilet flushing and laundry.

 The Nexus system uses greywater to heat potable water. Water from the shower, washing machine and sink is captured in the eWater Collector, where a heat pump extracts the heat energy via a heat pump evaporator. The refrigerant then cycles from the collector to the NEXwater One, an 80-gallon storage cylinder, where it heats the freshwater in the tank via a heat pump condenser. The Nexus system can save up to 3,000 killowatt-hours annually.

This family of solar pumps is fitted with permanent magnet motors, enabling efficient pumping action from a variety of a supply options. The SQFlex will pump water up to 600 feet, and can pump up to 85 gallons per minute for shallow wells, depending on the model. The series includes both centrifugal and helical rotor type pumps; the latter are recommended for wells with dirt, sand, sediment or high mineral content.
