Rainwater is one of the purest sources of water available anywhere, and nature won't even send you a utility bill for it. But what's on your roof may not be quite so pristine, especially if it's been a while since the last rainstorm. Leaves and dust, pebbles and pigeon droppings—none of that belongs in your drinking water.
Installing a First Flush Tank to divert and collect the first bit of dirty runoff coming from your roof allows you to keep the clean rainwater you want to use, separate from the junk.
All of our tanks offer a five-year warranty and come standard with a four-inch inlet on top flat, 1.5-inch plug for drainage as well as a 0.75-inch fitting for a hose spigot. Tanks are available in 13 colors with built-in UV inhibitors that prevent color fading and breakdown from harsh sunlight.
You should use a 100-gallon First Flush Tank if:
- You are building a large-scale Rain Harvesting System with a 10,000-square-foot or smaller collection area
- Tree coverage hanging over your collection area creates abnormal amounts of debris or bird waste
- The system brings rainwater indoors for regular consumption or use in appliances
