|More Benefits||Spruce Creek Rainsaver :: Designed...Not Adapted|
By placing the rainsaver in your backyard or garden landscape an easily accessible supply of water is available for various garden chores. The rainsaver arrives fully assembled for quick set-up.
The combination of color, shape, texture and graphics are designed to complement the surrounding landscape. The attributes of the rainsaver are intended to enhance the overall esthetic garden and yard design among plants, rocks, buildings, fences and walls.
Cut the existing downspout about 46 inches from the ground, and add a 60 degree elbow to the end. Now just place the rainbarrel so water will land anywhere within the recessed top. Water will collect on the top surface and funnel into the barrel through the screened intake opening. The downspout does not need to be placed directly over the screens, or directly into the barrel (this enables easier set-up, and filters debris from the downspout water).
By replacing the 6 ft. overflow hose with a longer length, excess rainwater can be diverted to beds, gardens or lawns for trickle watering. Simply use standard sump pump hose (inexpensive and available at most hardware stores) and drill or perforate in desired dispersion areas.
This fully assembled, one piece product provides easy set-up, durability and structural strength. Access points are provided at two different heights for attaching the spigot to either location for dispensing, and an adapter is provided for attaching a hose directly to the barrel if desired.
This barrel was created to catch rainwater. Keep 54 gallons of fresh, quality water at hand for your garden at all times, refilled everytime it rains. Collected water is stored at optimum temperatures and chemical free conditions that plants prefer. The Rainsaver rain barrel is useful and convenient, and overcomes many of the functional problems of earlier rain barrels.
Collect water when it's abundant...use it when it's not
Rainfall is rarely consistant and rainwater recovery manages weather extremes to benefit homeowners, communities, and the environment.
Strategically placed rainsavers can help prevent excessive runoff during storms and provide an ample and renewable source of water for home and garden needs.

Rainwater and The Spruce Creek Rainsaver
In recent years, drought and stormwater issues have risen to new public awareness. Droughts have become frequent, and when rain arrives, excessive runoff overwhelms ditches, streams, rivers and estuaries. Housing and industrial developments now cover vast areas of land, preventing rainfall from soaking into the ground, while a growing population has increased our demand on water resources.
In developing the Rainsaver, Spruce Creek envisioned water conservation and runoff control as a two-part function of our product. Users are able to collect rain when it is abundant, and use it for watering flowers, gardens, trees and lawns - when it’s not. This puts the “runoff reservoir” right at the downspout, and reduces "public" water demand later in the year. By providing rainwater collection within developed areas, greater stormwater absorption can exist, decreasing the demand on streams and rivers, and creating a more natural environment.
An average roof (1000 sq. ft.) will collect over 650 gallons of water with just 1 inch of rainfall. So even a 1/8 inch rain thunderstorm, could refill an empty rain barrel. Once the Spruce Creek Rainsaver is full, a 1-1/4 inch overflow hose directs excess water to a desired soak area on the homeowners property - where excess water can be utilized (garden, flower beds, trees). By extending the overflow with 50-100 ft. lengths of perforated hose - near gardens, beds or lawns, users can create a trickle system where rainwater is gently dispersed into the ground.
Most homes have several downspouts to capture these available water resourses, and Rainsavers positioned around the home become convenient tools for garden and outdoor uses. While providing great function to the user, The Spruce Creek Rainsaver can also benefit the ecology of our environment.
