Simple Way to Conserve Water by Collecting Rainfall for Various Outdoor Uses

November 17, 2012 Leave a comment

Atlantic Water Gardens RHCRU Clean Rain Ultra Downspout DiverterRoughly 60% of water is used outdoors making harvesting rainwater a smart, green and easy way to conserve water helping both the environment and your water bill too. The Clean Rain™ Ultra Downspout Diverter from Atlantic Water Gardens is an all-in-one rainwater filtration and collection system designed to ensure the water you store is bug and debris-free. The Ultra Downspout Diverter installs directly into the downspout of your home’s gutter and uses the force of rainwater to deflect leaves, debris and bugs off of its leaf slide and stainless steel (mosquito-proof) mesh screen. Depending upon the intensity of the rainfall the Smart Sense™ First Flush valve will divert dirty roof water from the initial rainfall and then collect the clean water that comes after. The Downspout Diverter is compatible with standard garden hoses, 1″ sump hoses, 1.5″ pool hoses and 3″ schedule 40 pipes. Any of these hoses can be connected directly to the Clean Rain Diverter and used to fill up a rain barrel or cistern, pond, pool or even to directly provide water to plants and trees.

The Clean Rain Ultra Downspout Diverter can be installed at any height along the gutter downspout. It is recommended to install it at a reachable height to make maintenance, such as removing leaves and debris, an easy task. To install, 29.3″ of downspout will need to be removed as this is where the Downspout Diverter will be setup. It comes with 2 downspout adaptors to fit 2″ x 3″, 3″ x 4″, 3″, 4″ and schedule 40 pipes. The Downspout Diverter will work automatically upon installation and can be switched off when desired if you don’t need to divert water. Its exterior is white but can be painted to match the color of the downspout it is being connected too for a clean look.

Experience a luxurious, maximum-flow shower that just happens to be environmentally friendly, too

January 6, 2012 Leave a comment

Water Lily Rain ShowerheadInstead of conserving water while you’re taking a shower, Evolve’s ShowerStart™ technology saves the hot water that’s wasted before you actually get in. The result – save time, hot water, energy and money without giving up a single thing. Taking your shower never felt so good.

Water Pressure

This is the perfect showerhead if you love the idea of a rain shower but worry that the spray won’t be strong enough to remove the shampoo from your hair. Well, worry no more. With this innovative head you’ll get ShowerStart technology and a great-feeling rain pattern as well as a concentrated pulsating spray that massages your scalp while quickly removing the shampoo from your hair.

Trickle Mode

Evolve’s integrated ShowerStart technology prevents expensive hot water from unnecessarily running down the drain before you actually get in the shower. It does this by automatically entering trickle mode once the water reaches bathing temperature, approximately 95°F (35° C) and stays there until you pull the chain to resume normal water flow. If the water flowing to the showerhead has reached this temperature, your Evolve showerhead goes into trickle mode the moment you turn it on. This typically happens when users are taking showers within a few minutes of one another. It could also happen if your bathroom became exceptionally hot – above 95° F (35° C). In either event, pulling the chain will resume your showerhead’s normal flow if it is in trickle mode when the water is turned on. Read more

Enjoy a Healthy Lawn & Control Water Use–A Definite Customer Favorite!

MARGARET — san jose, CA   9/30/2010

Oh my gosh! Great product! The only thing we changed was we hack sawed the remote holder off of the timer so we could mount the remote in another place. We got it for the annoying dogs that like to come do there business on my lawn. I see them coming across the street and hit the on button on the remote inside the house to turn on the sprinklers and send them running! It also helped when we changed the sprinkler heads as to not having to go to the timer when we needed to turn them on!

6-Station Sprinkler Timer With Remote
* Simple to Set Up
The 6-Station Sprinkler Timer has seven push-button keys for set-up and program entry. But the heart of the timer is the rotary dial, which makes it easy to see which function is currently selected and/or in which mode the timer is set to operate.

*Easy-Chair Programmable
Although the unit is AC-powered, the integrated battery compartment allows you to insert two AA batteries (sold separately) so that you may program the timer prior to installing it in its permanent location.

*Easy-to-Read Digital Display
The large LCD shows the time of day and indicates many of the programming settings. The display is completely interactive with all other controls.

*Non-Volatile Program Memory
If the 6-Station Sprinkler Timer loses AC power, the timer programming will not be lost. After AC power returns, the timer will recall the last program into memory and there is no need to re-program. If the power is lost and the back-up batteries are dead or missing, you’ll only have to reset the time and date. All other programming settings will remain.

*Remote Control
The 6-Station Sprinkler Timer comes with a convenient remote control that works from up to 200-ft. (60m) away. For example, you may initiate a manual watering cycle of 2, 10, 30 or 60 minutes for all or any individual station — without interrupting the timer programming. The remote also helps with testing during installation or maintenance. Remote requires a 9V battery (sold separately). Read more
