Rainwater Hog - Water Collection Storage Tank (HGHOGT)
Rainwater HOGs make it easy to fit volumes of rainwater storage in the tightest spaces. The HOG solution is novel: slim, easily handled tanks, designed for 20 years of useful life, fit into small spaces and screw together to provide rainwater storage in increments of 50 gallons.
Rainwater HOGs decentralize rainwater storage - their slim profile means water can be stored at each downspout and used locally. A single large cistern requires reticulated pipework linking all the downspouts to the tank and then back to the irrigated areas, often involving expensive installation and maintenance, not to mention garden replanting. The HOG system avoids such installation and maintenance costs with its smart, modular, slim design.
The best part is that the storage capacity can be structured to suit your budget and planned rainwater reuse, and expanded any time. Our largest installation to date is 114 HOGs for a total of 5,700 gallons using rainwater to flush toilets and irrigate gardens. Whether you install them horizontally, vertically or even on their long side as water-filled bench seating, Rainwater HOG modules are adaptable to almost any situation.
The modular screw together fittings combined with the robust 0.25inch (6mm) wall thickness of the HOG tank mean you can use the modules over and over, redeploying them to suit your changing needs.
Where can a Rainwater HOG be installed?
The Rainwater HOG can also be used in your housing structure, under your housing structure, or fixed to the sides of your house or along your fence. The Rainwater HOG can also be used under your deck or patio, and along your garden bed.
The Rainwater HOG can be positioned horizontally, for instance below a deck...or vertically, for instance along the side of a house.
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.
