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.
