About us

​​Harvested Rain Solutions was founded in 2008 to make better use of the tens of thousands of gallons of water that run off roofs every year in the Austin area. Rainwater harvesting is a solution to water shortages that originates literally right over our heads!  HRS can also tame many stormwater issues (really just poorly behaving rainfall!) with cistern based detention/retention systems for commercial and residential projects.  HRS is a Texas State Licensed Irrigation Contractor and can help with the full development of an RWH system from collection to use.

Ron obtained his Bachelor's of Science in Electrical Engineering from Purdue University. He started Harvested Rain Solutions in 2009 because of a well water shortage at his own residence. Previously, he spent 20 years in the electronics test and automation industry and designing custom homes. When Ron isn't designing and installing RWH systems, he enjoys working on projects around his home and traveling in his Bluebird Wanderlodge. He also enjoys meeting other rainwater harvesters and has visited with many in the US, Japan and Ireland to learn about best practices in different climates, supply chains and markets.
