Rainwater Harvesting Features & Benefits



Manway/Vent
The Water Series tanks come with a 16" threaded manway for ease of access into the tank. The manway has a built in vent to release air as water fills the tank.
First Flush Filtration
The product on the left is a "Leaf Diverter". The plastic body of this product is molded at an angle so that any debris such as leafs and twigs coming from a downspout will wash away, allowing only water through the grate down into the first flush assembly. The product on the right is a filter, which is located at the bottom of the first flush assembly. This product has two filters designed to filter out sediment from the first flush tube as it is evacuated by the dripper at the bottom. These two products work together to keep your first flush assembly working properly.
Overflow
BUSHMAN tanks come standard with an overflow fitting equipped with a stainless steel mesh which blocks mosquitoes, insects, and other debris from entering the tank. The overflow fitting has a 3 inch outer diameter, which can be easily rerouted using standard PCV materials. Also, keep in mind that any water overflowing from your tank can be put to use in some part of the yard. To be more eco-friendly, try running the overflow pipe underground to a bubbler located near a bio-swale. This ensures that you%u2019re rain water is being put to good use throughout the yard, and any run off will filter down into the aquifer below your property as nature originally intended.
Strainer Basket / Lid
The BUSHMAN stainless steel strainer comes standard on every rain water tank. The fine meshed strainer basket blocks mosquitoes, insects, and debris from getting into the tank. The strainer also comes with a lid that blocks out sunlight, minimizing any chance for algae to grow inside our UV inhibited tanks.
Fittings
Bushman Slim Line tanks have multiple factory installed 1’’ brass fittings. Round tanks come with 1’ bulkhead fittings. These fittings can be used for multiple purposes such as linking tanks together and connecting irrigation systems.
Baffles
You may notice that the Bushman Slim Line tanks have a series of holes molded into the design. The holes, or “Baffles”, are a series of specifically placed structural supports that ensure that Slim Line tanks maintain their shape, even when they are storing thousands of pounds of water.
