    • WHEN rain touches down it becomes stormwater; at that point how we manage it defines whether it will become a nuisance or a benefit.  Raincycle designs and installs Rainwater Recycling Systems to better manage stormwater on residential and commercial properties.
    • WHY RECYCLE RAINWATER |
      Sustainable Building Practice
      Compliance toStormwaterOrdinance
      Security & Natural Disaster Preparedness
      Credit towards LEED Certification
      Monetary Savings
    • STORMWATER MANAGEMENT|
      Current Ordinances:
      Beaufort County :
      • Newly developed or redeveloped sites must detain first 1.95 inches on rain on the property.
      Chatham County:
      • Newly developed or redeveloped sites must detain first 1.20 inches on rain on the property.
      Charleston County:
      • Maintain pre-existing conditions with no increase in run-off
      (Common Objective)
      Municipalities also have specific guidelines

    • AVAILABILITY ANDUSEANALYSIS |
      Availability
      How much rainwater can be collected?
      Rainwater is most commonly collected from roof runoff.
      Two factors that determine collection potential:
      1. Local rainfall characteristics
      2. Size of the collections surface – roof s.f.  
      One inch of rain produces .62 gallons of water for a single square foot area.  Thus a 1,000 square foot roof has the potential to collect 620 gallons of water for every inch of rain
    • AVAILABILITY ANDUSEANALYSIS |
      Use
      How can you best use the collected water?
      Potential uses for recycled water include (but are not limited to):
      Irrigation (usually accounts for about 60% of overall usage)
      Flushing Toilets
      Washing Laundry
      Washing Vehicles
      General Maintenance
      Drinking (with proper filtration)
    • RESIDENTIAL SYSTEM|
    • COMMERCIAL SYSTEM|
    • SYSTEMDESIGN ANDENGINEERING|
      Every Raincycle system has a storage component and a water handling component.  
      Proper sizing and configuration of both components is necessary for a sustainable rainwater recycling system.  
      The BALANCE between having too much EMPTY
      storage space and having too much OVERFLOW
      Every system according to the specific project needs.
    • SYSTEMDESIGN ANDENGINEERING|
      Storage
      Tank sizing is derived from calculations that follow the Availability and Use Analysis.  These calculations take daily rainfall averages for your specific area along with your demand needs to calculate how much storage your system will need.
      Tanks of varying construction can be located above or below ground to fit project needs.  
      Proper tank size is extremely important and our proven sizing software that sizes systems to a 90% efficiency is a key technological asset.

      Water Handling
      The German-engineered Wisy filters are the
      most effective rainwater recycling filters on
      the market and require minimal maintenance.  
      Wisy
      Cleans water of organic matter and debris
      Filter only needs cleaning once a year
      Stainless steel filters do not need replacing
      Tanks need minimal maintenance and cleaning
      Competitor’s filter
      Cleans water of organic matter and debris
      Filter needs to be cleaned frequently (often after heavy rainfalls)
      Components more susceptible to wear and tear & filters need replacing
      Tank recommended to be cleaned once a year
    • SYSTEMDESIGN ANDENGINEERING|
      Vortex Filter
    • VORTEX FILTER|
    • SYSTEMDESIGN ANDENGINEERING|
      Downspout Filter
      Both the Vortex and Downspout filters are tested to collect over 90% of the passing rainwater.
      Both filters also act as a first flush. The first flow of water that passes across the filter screens is not collected until the screens become wet enough to activate the capillary action that pulls water behind it.
    • SYSTEMDESIGN ANDENGINEERING|
      Inside Tank Components
      A. The Smoothing Inlet prevents tank stirring when the rainwater enters the tank.
      B. The Multi-Siphon acts as a skimming device and backflow preventer.
      C. The Floating Suction Filter collects the cleanest water from just below the surface.
