Remuera residents collect more water with bladder-tanks
Remuera residents Fiona and Charlie Marshall have installed a unique rainwater
bladder-tank that goes under their house, allowing them to collect more precious
water for their garden.
New Water's Rain Reviva is a unique rainwater tank flexible enough to fit under
a house or deck that can capture water from the entire surface area of the roof,
collecting up to 300 percent more water than a standard tank system.
Whilst renovating their residence at the beginning of the year, the Marshalls
decided to have a 3,600 litre Rain Reviva installed under their house.
"We had some renovations and landscaping done and needed to irrigate the garden
and keep the fishpond topped up. It just seemed to us that using rainwater was a
much more logical solution than wasting tap water," Charlie said.
"We don't have much room in our yard but New Water's Rain Reviva could fit under
the house where there was plenty of wasted space.
"Ralph Crewe from New Water has been very easy going to work with and we're
really happy with our bladder-tank," he said.
Rainwater captured by the Rain Reviva is typically used for washing cars,
watering the garden, flushing the toilet and even operating the washing machine.
After success across Australia, New Water began doing business in New Zealand in
2006. Local sales representative, Ralph Crewe, has been busy doing quotations
and installations across New Zealand and the Cook Islands as interest in the
bladder- tanks continues to grow.
The Australian made system was invented by Malcolm Gordon, Operations Manager of
New Water, who has worked in the water industry for over 20 years. He is one of
the leading experts in the construction of practical solutions to water
treatment and storage challenges faced by both domestic and commercial entities.
The patented system incorporates an inlet that efficiently diverts the rainwater
from each downpipe into the bladders and when they are full, ensures the excess
water reverts back to the stormwater outlet. A pump system then allows the water
to be reticulated to a range of devices such as the garden hose, the pool,
sprinkling systems and even the washing machine and dishwasher.
The Rain Reviva bladder-tanks come in a range of sizes, which can be linked for
extra capacity and capture up to 30,000 litres of water.
It is sold by New Water throughout the country as a full kit, which includes a
pump and pressure control mechanism.
New Water also sells a system that recycles household grey water, called the
