At Arid Solutions Inc.Com™, our goal is to bring you water conservation products that are attractive and user friendly to help harvest and recycle fresh water. 

Our vision is to have  rain barrels as commonplace outdoors as hoses or potted plants and that those tanks will be the first places people will go when they need water for any non-potable purpose - thus saving fresh water now and for the future.

ASI is proud to be a member of Co-op America and listed in the National Green Pages. This seal of approval is the seal of choice for environmentally conscious consumers.

Here are some of the "green practices" of our business and home:

We reuse any and all shipping boxes and materials when possible. Non-sensitive office paper is shredded and used in packing or to keep the composting worms happy! Our home office is  located in a house that has been remodeled using green products and reusing what was onsite when possible. Recycled products are used when possible in daily living...along with the products we sell on this site!

 

The Arid Solutions Inc.Com™ "Recycler"  Rain Barrel is what we believe to be the finest available.  It was designed for the homeowner or business owner who wants to save water but also wants an attractive, quality tank.  These water collection tanks take the old "rain barrel" to a whole new level with features that allow water collection to adapt to various needs and situations. Lisa Ayres Arid Solutions Inc.

TESTIMONIALS:

I am delighted with the rain barrel! ...you can expect many more orders from this address.  ... it's fantastic to have a convenient place to store the shower and rinse water...[when it’s not raining].  The octagonal design was a major factor in choosing your product: I live on a steep hill, and in event of a seismic event, I didn't want to be responsible for a 450 pound cylindrical water-bomb dislodging and crashing down the slope. 

In addition, your website was the only one I found that gave me all the technical details, specifications, installation instructions, lots of photos, and answered all my questions in the FAQ. I am a careful shopper and I really appreciate careful and thoughtful merchants such as yourselves.  I will be recommending you most definitely.
So give yourselves an "11". N.E. San Diego, CA

 
We are very pleased with your service and FAST shipping. Can't wait to get them set up. We are having so much rain here right now we can't get out to set them up yet.  Thanks again for such great service.  B.B., Saginaw, MI
 
 

Lisa,

Thanks for your inquiry.  We have been totally satisfied with your product, and our only problem is managing the amount of water… sometimes full barrels, sometimes not enough rain.   But we’ll learn how to do that.  Right now we’re deciding how to apportion the remaining water before the heavy freezes set in. Please let us know if you have clients who would like to see the systems.  We’d be happy to show them off.  R.H., Corrales, NM

 

I love My system, It works great!!!!!!!!!!!!! J.W., Capitan, NM

 

"The whole system is very well thought out, a fine product. I am very happy." J.H., Mystic, CT

and a follow-up letter from the same customer: 

Yes, not only would I recommend you and your products but I already have, to all my friends who would be able to use a rain barrel, etc. Here's a copy.

Dear friends,

I'm nervous about the lack of water over the winter and the potential for drought this summer.  If you are interested in rain barrels for water conservation here's the web sight I use and LOVE!! lisa@aridsolutionsinc.com I found them the best looking and easiest to use. Mine has lived through 3 winters with no cracks. I forgot to empty mine for the winter last season and no problem; don't recommend doing that. I bought an Adobe, color, rain barrel and just ordered one for the top to double the H2O savings and help the water pressure. The first year I had mine up and working I did not water the property from the house to the shore. I used only the rain barrel, all season! I even used it to keep the "pond" full.  No chlorine just great healthy rain water. I did put one of those mosquito ring things in to control the little buggers. Just thought if you were interested at some point ... this one is very good! Tried and true.
