There are numerous reasons for collecting rainwater. Rainwater collected from roofs of houses can make an important contribution to the general availability of water as well as household water cost savings. Whether you would like to water your plants, garden, home foundation, or have an outdoor water source for hand-washing or pressure washing, rainwater is FREE and you should collect it. Collecting Rainwater is a self-sufficient way getting water and also provides a net positive impact on the environment. Whether your motivation is one or all of these, a rainwater harvesting tank can arguably be the most important component of your system!
Don’t settle for any plastic tank that requires retro-fitting in order to properly collect rainwater! These rainwater tanks are assembled specifically for helping you properly collect rainwater. These tanks are designed with 4 Dome Flats on the top of the tank and 4 Layout Flats at the base of the tank. These 8 flats surfaces allow you to daisy chain tanks together or provide flat surfaces for installation of additional outlet/inlet fittings, overflow fittings, float switches, tank gauges or other accessories. These tanks come with a 16" stainless steel mesh screen installed on the top of the tank. The tank screen is the rainwater entry point of the, and it's primary job is to keep mosquitoes and other debris out of the tank and allows a large entry point of pre-filtered rainwater to enter the tank. The tank also comes with an already assembled stainless steel mesh screened overflow assembly, outlet bulkhead fitting and a 3/4″ bulkhead fitting for a water hose spigot. The stainless steel mesh overflow assembly is designed for directing overflown water during large rain storms while doubling to keeping pests & mosquitoes out of the tank. Our 3/4″ bulkhead fitting is placed at a height that enables you to install a spigot and fit a watering can underneath for filling. Collected rainwater is technically non-potable.
