Rainwater System

Company Reference: 

Talking Tanks monitors water levels in rainwater tanks, automatically releasing water at a controlled rate if required. The system preempts the release of water from set points chosen by the user according to rain or storm predictions, which are received via a communications link to the Bureau of Meteorology. An advanced algorithm analyzes how successful the capture of rainwater was and adjusts accordingly for future events.

Green at Its Best

In the world of aquatic sporting and adventure, there are few places on Earth as well recognized as San Francisco’s waterfront along the Embarcadero. Located in the heart of the city’s bustling Fisherman’s Wharf area, Pier 27, once visited daily by hordes of residents and tourists alike, had gradually deteriorated under withering traffic over the past decade.

Alternative Applications

In my previous article, “Ultrafiltration: A Business Growth Opportunity” (September 2013), I referenced a 2010 BBC research report stating that “the U.S. market for ultrafiltration (UF) technologies was worth $940 million in 2010. It is estimated to be valued at $1.24 billion by 2015.”1 Simply put, the business opportunities for UF are growing rapidly, which could prove extremely profitable for the savvy professional water dealer.

Drinking Water Downpour

When most people think of rainwater harvesting, they picture a 55-gal tank that collects rainwater from the roof to water plants — but this term also extends to natural collection systems like dams. Rainwater harvesting is nothing new; it has been around for centuries, dating back to ancient Egyptians who used earthen dams to control runoff. Another example is the rice terraces of the Philippines, which are still in existence today. More sophisticated rainwater systems have been uncovered by archaeologists in Crete, Istanbul and throughout the Mediterranean region.

Commercial Complexities

Over the past five years, the topic of rainwater harvesting has become prevalent everywhere we look. Many articles on this subject begin with an introduction about rainwater harvesting not being a new concept because systems have been around since before the ancient Greeks. They then cover the basics, from where water can be captured to its various applications. Storage tanks, pumps and filters are typically mentioned, but sometimes without specific details. This is for good reason: Rainwater harvesting systems, especially commercial-sized ones, can be complex.
