"Rainwater is a naturally pure, clean and sustainable source of water"
All countries are dependent on rainwater. Many countries, like South Africa, have a very erratic and unpredictable rain fall pattern with many regions experiencing seasonal rainfall. If rainwater could be collected or harvested for future use, it would provide a much needed relief to our domestic water supply as well as facilitate a substantial cost saving on our municipal water bill.
We have negotiated top prices and top quality with our supplier Urban Rain Systems to supply and install these Tanks for YOU and a brighter tomorrow.
- This rainCell tank was designed primarily to harvest rainwater gathered from any roof structure to supply water for future use, either to supply your complete establishment or just purely to supply your irrigation system, top op the pool or even just to wash down the patio.
- The narrow design of the tank is perfect for urban areas where space is a major concern.
- Unlike traditional round tanks, the RainCell™ tank will not block walk ways, requiring only 0.8m X 1.9m (for a 2000 Litre RainCell™ tank) of free space. The RainCell™ tank can be placed against virtually any wall of your house.
- Simply divert a gutter down pipe directly above the tank’s filter screen to collect rainwater from your roof.
- The harvested rainwater can then be used to irrigate the garden, top up the swimming pool, wash the car, etc. Rainwater is even clean enough to be plumbed into your house with very little extra filtration required.
- Several other unique features include:
- 4 Outlet options, allowing for any inlet/outlet configuration.
- Stainless steel filter screen (conforming to international standards) for the filtration of rainwater from the roof.
- 70mm overflow outlet with mosquito proof stainless steel mesh.
- Tubular shaped body for added strength, to maintain cool stored water and to ventilate the surrounding area.
- Available in either a 2000 litre or a 3000 litre version.
Fracking, the popular abbreviation for hydraulic fracturing, is a technique which injects highly-pressurized fluid into a well to split the rock and allow access to natural gas trapped within.
Energy companies, driven in no small part by dwindling reserves of easy-to-access fossil fuels, are increasingly turning to so-called unconventional sources of fossil fuels. Shale gas is one of these; and hydraulic fracturing promises to open up access to what is claimed to be vast to sources of natural gas, and profits. National governments too, driven by a desire for greater energy independence, want access to these reserves of natural gas.
But big questions remain about the environmental safety of fracking: Will fracking cause more earthquakes? Will the chemicals used contaminate drinking water? What will be the impact on small farms? Does natural gas obtained by fracking have similar greenhouse gas emissions to other natural gas?
Energy companies downplay all of these concerns. Politicians focus on energy independence. Environmentalists urge caution. Whatever side you're on, fracking is likely to remain an issue in the forefront of energy policy for some time.
