Saving for a Rainy Day with Harlequin

Harlequin Plastics has been celebrating the end of a successful season for its market leading brand of "RainStation" rainwater harvester tanks.

Moira, United Kingdom, September 23, 2011 --( Despite ever-increasing awareness on the importance of renewable energy resources in recent times, many of us still struggle with finding ways to incorporate renewable energy into our daily lives. However, one of the easiest ways in which to begin your transition into the world of renewables is to introduce a rainwater harvester into your domestic setting.

Rainwater harvesters have been on the market for several years and can come in a variety of shapes, sizes and application types. While many require installation by a professional, each model within Harlequin’s RainStation range can be easily installed without professional assistance and furthermore, none of the models require any costly or messy digging preparation.

So how exactly do RainStation rainwater harvesters work? It’s simple, as Harlequin’s Marketing Manager, Ciara Cox explains. “Each RainStation connects directly to a standard downpipe via a rainwater collector and filter, which gathers rainwater and pre-filters it before entering your tank. Any remaining dirt or debris is then forced to travel along the downpipe in the usual way. This system also acts as an overfill prevention device in the event of heavy rainfall.

“Once in your tank, the collected water can be used for a variety of purposes. A conveniently located, factory fitted tap allows you to fill a watering can with ease. Furthermore, RainStation Plus models are supplied with a market leading water pump as standard – enabling you to benefit from increased water pressure and flow rates in washing the car or watering the garden. Best of all... all of this is possible without having to incur any hefty water charges!”

In making the move towards renewables as straightforward as possible for its customers, Harlequin have created an easy to follow online installation video in order to assist as much as possible in the process of installing your own RainStation. In addition, you will also find a range of similar videos on the company’s extended product ranges, such as bunded oil tanks, diesel tanks, waste oil tanks, biodiesel tanks, coal, salt and grit bins.

Manufactured by Europes’ leading manufacturer of rotationally moulded plastic tanks, RainStation rainwater harvesters are made from materials which exceed all relevant regulatory requirements and which have been designed to provide the customer with a long-lasting and reliable source of renewable energy at minimal cost and installation effort.
