Rainwater can be used for watering your garden as well as for toilet flushing, laundry washing and bathing. Rainwater stored in food grade HOGs can be used as an emergency potable water supply. Rainwater is soft water, which means that it wont cause a build up of calcium in your plumbing like hard water can. You can drink rainwater as long as your roofing material does not contain toxic materials. You will need to add a first flush diverter to the fine screen filter in the Inlet kit. Don’t let your rainwater go to waste - the Rainwater HOG is functional, efficient and visually discreet rainwater storage!
The Award-winning Modular Water Tank
Space is precious. Water is too. Sally Dominguez has designed an award-winning innovative modular vessel which stores the most volume of water possible in the smallest footprint. Rainwater HOGs are produced in two countries, the USA - with imperial dimensions – and Australia in metric dimensions. Check the relevant dimensions below to see how Rainwater HOGs can fit under decks, up against walls and along side passages in your region of the world.
The Rainwater HOG modular tank is rotomolded in virgin polyethylene which complies with AS2070. The HOG is molded of food grade plastic which complies with FDA and HPB regulatory standards for food contact. However, Australian and USA law state that rainwater should not be used for drinking water. The water from your roof can be contaminated with animal and vegetable matter which needs to be filtered from stored water before it is fit for consumption. The fact that off grid communities and rural areas do use rainwater for drinking purposes demonstrates that it is possible if the right collection and filtration measures are taken. Generally in suburban and urban areas it is not permitted to harvest rainwater for drinking or other potable use apart from toilet flush and laundry wash. The tank material itself is 100 % recyclable and has been designed to last you a lifetime.
Each Rainwater HOG tank manufactured in the US has a capacity of 51 gallons and the following dimensions: 20” x 9.5” x 71”. The HOG weighs approximately 40 lbs when empty and 440 lbs when full.
The Rainwater HOG is currently available in the standard tank color of Bronze Olive Green, but can be produced in almost any other color for orders of 20 or more units. To name a few exciting color options, we have produced red, orange, black, white, and lime green HOGs. Please be advised that we do not paint the HOGs to make them different colors — the Rainwater HOG is manufactured by our factory in the chosen color.
Mix ‘n’ Match
The Rainwater HOG is designed to work with conventional connection components which are individually guaranteed by the manufacturers. But since our connection points are a brass 1 “ NPT /24mm thread, you can work with our suggested parts — or simply buy your own. Go to The Accessories page for more information.
Each HOG includes a connector and air vent. Wall kits and Inltet/Outlet kits must be purchased separatley.
