RAINWATER WAREHOUSE LAUNCHES RAINWATER HARVESTING E-COMMERCE WEBSITE

 

Rainwater Warehouse, leading provider of rainwater harvesting technologies introduces a complete line of rainwater harvesting systems and products available for purchase on their new website, www.rainwaterwarehouse.com

 

 

SARASOTA, FLORIDA, DECEMBER 19, 2011 — Rainwater Warehouse has launched a new website offering a complete range of rainwater harvesting systems and products. According to Principal, Jack Burden, Rainwater Warehouse provides a complete range of residential & commercial rainwater harvesting products. The company offers packaged solutions directly to green build developers, builders and homeowners. They also provide commercial grade rainwater harvesting components to builders & owners of commercial properties.

The company offers complete rainwater harvesting systems and rainwater harvesting components with field tested dependability. These systems include the highest quality components, separating their systems from the likes of those you may find at a boxed retail location. “It is important that you pay close attention to the components that are included in any rainwater harvesting system. Many systems on the market today are made with low quality components; our systems are built to last,” Burden Explained.

Featured on the website is the Rainwater Warehouse Deluxe Rainwater Harvesting System, sold with a 300 or 500 gallon tank. The system offers multiple mounting options for downspout, filter and tank placement and boasts of easy installation in fewer than 30 minutes. Included is an overflow system, 3/4" hose bib, Leaf Beater, 300 or 500 Gallon UV inhibited tank, 1/6hp submersible pump w/ 8' electric cord and assembly instructions. The systems are turnkey, no additional parts are required.

The Deluxe Rainwater Harvesting Systems are supplied with corrosion resistant schedule 40 PVC pipe and fittings. “Thinner wall pipes will decay and become brittle after prolonged exposure to sunlight. These systems are field tested to stand up to the sun, lawn equipment and are tamper resistant,” Burden asserted.

The tanks have manways installed at the top which are sealed tightly to prevent accidental death or injury. Molded of food grade polyethylene resin, the tanks have a long term UV package and are suitable for use in or out of direct sunlight. The high impact resin is not affected by warm or cold temperatures. This allows captured water to be used for emergency supply if required,” said Burden.

If you are not in the market for a package system, Rainwater Warehouse also provides individual components and downloadable kit plans for the “do it yourselfers”. They offer a range of products and services including fixed cost design review, the Apex PumpBuddy®, Leaf Beater® and custom made commercial grade downspout filters. The filters come in your choice of aluminum, stainless steel or copper.

Also available for purchase is a decorative downspout filter and a custom decorative pipe sleeves with a special precast footer. The decorative systems can add an architectural element to the home or hide the visible elements of a rainwater harvesting system. “Homeowners can now harvest rainwater without detracting from the beauty of their homes,” stated Burden. “We offer solutions that are not only dependable, but allow the average homeowner to install and use with ease.”

Homeowners once purchased rainwater harvesting systems to decrease their water footprint or save money on their utility bill, but rainwater can also prove to be a useful asset in times of emergency. “Rainwater harvesting systems can prove to be a necessity in the event of wildfire, flooding, drought or other domestic or natural emergencies,” said Burden.

Create peace of mind with an independent, alternative water source using a Rainwater Warehouse Deluxe Rainwater Harvesting System. You will never have to worry about water regulations or drought when you have your own source of harvested rainwater. When you purchase a system from Rainwater Warehouse you aren’t just buying a system, you are buying independence. Rainwater Warehouse provides only the most durable systems and components, field tested and proven to withstand the elements.

All major credit cards are accepted and the team is available to speak to if you have any questions prior to purchase. For more information you can visit Rainwater Warehouse on the web at www.rainwaterwarehouse.com.

“The ICC strongly endorses the practice of rainwater collection to supplement traditional water supplies,” ICC Chief Executive Officer Richard P. Weiland said. “ICC is eager and ready to work with the state and many dedicated stakeholders to develop appropriate measures for rainwater capture that are within California’s accepted process to create and adopt codes. This was a very difficult bill for us to oppose due to the sustainable features and must have been just as hard for the Governor. We commend Governor Brown for his veto.”
