Ferrocement Storage Vessels


Ecoscapes utilizes a variety of rainwater storage systems based on client’s needs.  However, the Ferrocement Storage Vessels are the latest innovative rainwater storage technology being used in our arid southwest climate.

Ferrocement vessels consist of a thin sheet of cement mortar which is reinforced with a cage made of wire mesh and steel bars.  They are completely customizable making them an ideal choice where water catchment, visual appeal, and dual functionality (such as privacy, shading, wall separation) are important.  Construction is of strong, long-lasting materials that are repairable.  When properly designed and installed they will withstand weather extremes.

Ferrocement vessels can be construced in locations inaccessible to many other large rainwater containers-without the need for a sky hook on a long beam!

These water tanks are built with steel, wire and cement.
