Don’t settle for a regular plastic tank that requires modifications in order to properly collect rainwater! Get a tank made for collecting Rainwater. Poly-Mart 500 Gallon SunShield® Rainwater Harvesting Tanks are assembled specifically for the proper collection of rainwater and are designed with 4 Dome Flats on the top of the tank and 4 Layout Flats at the base of the tank which provide flat surfaces for installation of additional outlet/inlet fittings, tank over flow fittings, float switches, tank guages, daisy chaining tanks together, and other Rainwater Harvesting Accessories. Installers have flexibility when additional fittings are required for the given application. Custom fitting placement on tanks by the manufacturer are subject to additional fees and fitting cost. Utilize the tank drawing when determining the location and size of additional fittings.
Poly-Mart 500 Gallon SunShield® Rainwater Storage Tanks come with a 12" stainless steel mesh screen installed on the top of the tank. The tank screen, sometimes referred to as a strainer basket is the rainwater entry point of the tank. It’s primary job is to keep mosquitoes out of the rainwater tank and allows a large entry point of pre-filtered rainwater to enter the tank. Large debris like sticks and leaves should be filtered out prior to reaching the Strainer Basket by using a rain head and/or a first flush diverter. The tank includes a steel mesh screened overflow assembly, outlet bulkhead fitting and a 3/4″ bulkhead fitting for a water hose spigot. The stainless steel mesh screened overflow assembly is designed for directing overflown water during large rain storms while doubling to keeping pests & mosquitoes out of the tank. The 3/4″ bulkhead fitting is placed at a height that enables you to install a spigot and fit a watering can underneath for filling. Collected rainwater is technically non-potable. Do not drink collected rainwater without proper filtration.
There's no harm in hoping for the best as long as you're prepared for the worst.
