Clean Rain – Rain Water Filtration And Harvesting System

Clean Rain - Rain Water Filtration And Harvesting System

Clear Rain is a device that allows you to filter rain effectively and efficiently and allows you to attach hosing to take the cleaned rain to where it is needed, for a pool, pond or any form of water storage.

Clean Rain - Rain Water Filtration And Harvesting System

Clean Rain has been designed by Rain Harvesting Pty Ltd to connect to downpipes to collect and filter the rainwater running through them. The intelligent system features a device known as Smart Sense that allows the system to discard the ‘first flush’ of water that comes through the pipes. The first flush of water is high in contaminants: dirt, dust, bird dropping and other such items are washed off the roof and out of piping from the initial burst of rain. Once this first flush has passed the system starts to divert the water passing through its filters to be sent through any piping or hosing connected to it.

The system uses a comb device to remove any leaves from the rainwater, the water is then filtered through a stainless steel wire mesh which removes small contaminants, even tiny mosquito eggs from the water. The Clean Rain system comprises from 90% lead free UPVC, the remainder of it has been constructed from PP. Both materials are suitable for recycling once the system has come to the end of its useful life and the system has been designed to allow you to quickly and easily break it apart into single material items to allow for easy recycling.

The Clean Rain system helps to make using rainwater simpler and allow the water to be used on a wider range of things. The rain water can be stored for watering a garden, or put into a pond. Due to its cleanness it can also be used in a pool, or set to be stored in a large water storage tank for use in toilets or such devices.

By making use of rainwater you help to reduce the amount of processed water you household requires. Processing water for suitability for taps involves many chemicals, many argue it is best to use water without these for your plants, and is sensible to have back up water to help reduce demand on mains water. The Clean Rain system makes collecting cleaned rainwater easy, allowing you to make use of it however you wish.

    This product is just what I have been looking for. I am going to connect it to my rain barrel then upgrade to a larger cistern next year. Great product, well done Rain Harvesting!

    Very interesting idea! It really looks like a very smart system. I was already thinking about some kind of rainwater storage to use it for watering a garden but this Clean Rain system makes it more sophisticated… The only trouble could be that some of water companies’ don´t allow harvesting rainwater as it is a big business for them…
