Although close to three fourths of our planet is made of water, not all of it is suitable for use. There is a constant shortage of water that is neither good for drinking at home or industrial use. As a result, the modern day rainwater harvesting system has been implemented. The idea behind the process is simple. Rainwater is collected when it falls on the earth. It is then stored and utilized for use at a later time. Rain Catchers process of collecting rain water works by using a system that redirects rainfall from roofs into an underground containment cistern. It can be purified and transformed into 100% potable water source to then be used for daily applications and even in large scale industries. Rain Catchers harvesting is a process of collecting, filtering, storing and utilizing rainwater to support and promote a sustainable lifestyle
Water Containment Facts:
• Rain tanks are made with 100% recycled plastics. (60% consumer / 40% post industrial)
• Can handle up to 25 tons.
• All products are made to USA regulation standards.
• Enhances landscape features, while simultaneously capturing large quantities of rain/storm water for future use.
We find that our systems are the most beneficial on the market, simply because:
• High Capacity – 95% void Internal Area Yields 90% Void Area
• Modular Design – Can be placed in any shape to efficiently use space
• High Strength – May be used under parking lots and roads
• Increased Infiltration – Reduces post-construction runoff
• Easy to Transport – Can be supplied unassembled for reduced delivery costs
• Lightweight and Quick to Install – Can be put in place by hand; no cranes required / Reduces site access delays
