RainSava system provides water shortage and storm water runoff solutions
Bord na Mona Environmental Products U.S. Inc. introduced a complete range of RainSava rainwater harvesting products at WEFTEC.09 in Orlando, Fla.
RainSava rainwater harvesting systems are designed to provide an alternative to the use of potable drinking water for non-drinking water reuse applications. Bord na Móna provides complete systems or individual components to capture and use rain that falls onto a catchment area such as a roof. By collecting and filtering natural rainwater and providing a means of distributing the water to the required locations in an economic way, RainSava systems provide a solution to the growing problem of water shortage and storm water runoff.
The system incorporates a filter that can be located in each downpipe or in the combined rainwater pipe after it goes underground. This unique filter design ensures that the rainwater passes through the filter and into the storage tank so that any debris and leaves are filtered out. The design ensures that access to the filter is simple allowing ease of cleaning.
“Bord na Mona has been designing and installing RainSava rainwater harvesting solutions throughout Ireland and the United Kingdom, ” Keaney said. “This experience is now being made available to the United States, which has urgent and growing needs to conserve water.”
