FP McCann has developed Easi-Rain, a domestic and commercial rainwater harvesting tank system designed to reduce demands on the mains network by providing a sustainable water collection and distribution system ideal for non-potable uses such as toilet flushing, washing and landscape or garden watering. Typically, up to 50 litres a day per person of waste water can be saved in an average domestic household.
Easi-Rain also helps ease the growing pressure on the UK’s water infrastructure by capturing water run-off thereby reducing flood risk in an already overloaded drainage network. The controlled management of rainwater run-off is key to the Environment Agency’s SUDS (Sustainable Urban Drainage Solutions) directive. Future domestic, commercial and industrial developments will be subject to planning guidelines that strongly feature SuDS initiatives. Easi-Rain is one sustainable solution in the water conservation challenge.
Easi-Rain is part of FP McCann’s Easi-Cast environmental range of waste water management products.

The filtered rainwater is very soft and chlorine free, making it particularly suitable for fabric washing as well as other uses such as toilet flushing and external cleaning and irrigation. Easi-Rain harvesting tanks are available in 5 different capacities:-
