Quadel Industries: Rain Strain Cap


After many requests for us to make a rain barrel for rain water harvesting , we decided it would be better for our customers to simply offer them a low cost add on for our existing water tanks.

The idea behind the rain strain cap  is that you can fit it on any of our water tanks from 175 gallon all the way to 2500 gallon.

Our 175 gallon and 300 gallon make ideal under the spout type collectors, because of their small compact size.

They don’t really take up that much more room than the average rain barrel but they give you a whole lot more capacity, plus our tanks can be plumbed however you like.

The Rain Strain Cap is a simple rugged design that will last many years with little maintenance. As you can see in the video below the Rain Strain Cap will catch all of the large leafs , pine needles and other debris that happen to get washed down your gutter during the rainy season. This will keep the bio matter in your water to a minimum.

We also make the Rain Strain Cap in Black so you can let the rain in and block the sunlight , plus it matches our existing tanks  perfectly.

As the water flows down your spout and onto the Rain Strain Cap , plenty of water will be allowed to collect in your tank , while still allowing water to flow down the steep face of the cap , creating a self cleaning filter .

With the slanted design the debris gets washed down the front on to the ground where you can periodically rake it up or blow away with your leaf blower.

Over the course of even the most minimal rainy season , you will have plenty of water later in the year for gardening, flowers or what ever needs a drink during the dry season.

Rain water harvesting is an excellent way to conserve water our most valuable resource! To Order yours today just call 1-800-Buy-Poly !

Quadel Industries: Rain Strain Cap



The Quadel Industries Rain Strain Cap is an idea that was developed  to help utilize our Titan series water tanks as rain catchment tanks. Many people these days are seeing the practicality of capturing and storing rain water.

Because we are already in the water tank business we decided to give our customers an option for using our existing models of polyethylene water tanks as rain catchment systems.

The idea  of  the Rain Strain Cap came to us because we kept getting requests for some type of rain catchment barrel or tank. Rather than develop a specific tank or barrel for this , we decided it would be simpler to offer a cap to replace the standard man way cover that comes with our tanks.

The Quadel Rain Strain Cap will fit on all of our Titan Tank models from our 175 gallons all the way to our 2500 gallon. This solution allows you to choose any size tank you want and convert it to catch rain water right from your gutter down spout.

The Rain Strain Cap has a debris screen that will keep leafs , pine needles ,sticks and other debris from getting inside your tank during collection. As the screen catches the debris it will fall downward off  to the side and onto the ground , instead of into your tank !

This self cleaning screen design will keep most of the debris out of your water , smaller particles will simply settle to the bottom of the tank where they can be flushed out periodically via the bottom bulkhead fitting.

We are currently building the mold and will go into testing shortly to make sure the Rain Strain Cap works as effectively as possible. Once all has been tested , we will start manufacturing and make the product available to our dealers.

The images are the product  fresh out of the oven ,next we will start working on the screen see technical drawings here , once we finishing testing we will be uploading images and videos of the Rain Strain Cap in action !
