BRAE, a Watts Water Technologies company, introduces configurable rainwater harvesting systems for commercial, institutional and residential applications that can reduce water consumption by up to 65 percent. BRAE’s commercial and institutional systems offer storage capacities of 200 to over 2 million gallons, and manage the filtration, storage, distribution and treatment  functions typical to rainwater systems. Above and below ground residential systems store between 225 and 3,000 gallons of rainwater to meet a range of consumer demands.  BRAE specializes in helping customers interface rainwater systems with building management systems and developing tools to showcase their investment and enrich curricula in educational environments.
