The Rainwater HOG is a totally different approach to catching the rainwater from your roof and storing it for re-use in your home and garden. Instead of being shaped in the classic barrel or column shape, the Rainwater HOG is designed as a tall, flat shape, making it ideal for storing water in spaces where a classic water butt will not fit. The best examples of these spaces are under your terrace decking, or along a narrow alley down the side of your property.
Water is an extremely valuable commodity, vital for human life and health, as well as for animals and plants. The rainwater captured by the Rainwater HOG can be used for flushing the toilet and washing laundry if you have a suitable grey water plumbing system, or simply for irrigating your garden and washing your car.
Rainwater harvesting the environmental way
Installing the Rainwater HOG will cut your carbon footprint. Tap water is processed in energy intensive water treatment plants to make it suitable for drinking, washing, and for use in hospitals and the food and drinks industry. It's a huge waste of energy to use this heavily processed water to flush the loo, clean your laundry, or water your vegetable patch. By using rainwater for these, you can reduce your tap water use by up to 50%.
The RainwaterHOG is a green product. It's manufactured from 100% recyclable plastic with energy supplied from natural gas.
Rainwater is freely available. Making use of the rain that falls on the roof can reduce tap water use by up to 50%, significantly reducing the water bill of metered households. Furthermore rainwater is soft water, so it won't lead to a build up of calcium in your plumbing.
