With the recognition of water as a valued commodity, Harlequin Tanks has invested in the design and manufacture of a new range of simple and unobtrusive rainwater harvesting systems – ‘HydroStore’
The HydroStore allows full capacity storage and, when installed above the natural water table, it does not require a concrete surround. The lower part of the body has vertical flats which allow interconnecting pipework and the linking together of multiple tanks to provide greater storage capacities.
The HydroStore has been designed to minimise materials and installation costs. The base of the tank is flat which helps with installation and allows complete drainage of the tank when cleaning. The cover is retained using a single bolt and can be removed completely to leave clear access. Surface water is directed down past the lid and turret to soak away into the surrounding soil.
Ultimately, these tanks become air pockets under the ground, allowing their volume to be flooded with recovered and usable water. Above ground, they do not impede on available space which can be used for more diverse, practical and imaginative purposes.
