Saving Customers Time and Money

Atlanta, GA, June 24, 2008 - The new 3,500 square foot retail store features a wide assortment of rainwater system components including: rain barrels, tanks, filters, pumps, accessories and fully integrated systems. Everything to build a rainwater collection system is now available in one location. The store also features a fully functioning rain harvesting system to demonstrate how rainwater systems work.

Rainwater capturing systems have been complex, costly and difficult to locate through the disparate network of vendors and manufacturers spanning several countries. RainHarvest Systems is focused on removing the barriers for widespread deployment of rainwater catchment in the United States. RainHarvest Systems sources top tier products from the leading manufacturers and purchases by the truckload, dramatically reducing shipping costs and passing these savings on to customers.

"Having a store and warehouse allows our customers to see exactly what they're buying and compare alternatives", says Randy Kauk, co-founder of RainHarvest Systems. He continues, "We've been told that we're the first in the country to offer such a variety of products in a wholesale and retail environment".
RainHarvest Systems stocks cisterns and tanks, rain barrels, filters, pumps, first flow diverters, tank monitors and accessories from 3P Technik, RainHarvesting, WISY, Rotonics, Norwesco, Ace Roto-Mold and more. A wide range of tanks are in stock, from 40 to 2,000 gallons and tanks up to 50,000 gallons are easily available.

Customer Greg Dickson said, "The store makes it so easy to understand how all the parts fit together. Before, I was surfing the Internet for hours looking for information; now, in one place I can see it in action and buy what I need for my house. This is just what the average homeowner needs."
The brand new retail store, conveniently located near the new Avenue Forsyth retail center, is off Exit 13 on Highway 400 in Cumming, GA. It features a working rainwater system with a 500-gallon tank, pumps, and a conveyance system to demonstrate the various parts of a rainwater system. The public can tour the system at no charge, and workshops on various rainwater products are given monthly. Upcoming classes will be posted on the RainHarvest Systems website (www.rainharvest.com) In addition to their retail store, RainHarvest Systems also offers a world class, secure web site to provide fast, safe, and convenient Internet shopping.

RainHarvest Systems, LLC (www.rainharvest.com) was founded by Randy Kauk and Curtis Giffen. Randy has founded several startups. He served on the Never Ending Gardens project in Soweto, South Africa, where rainwater is the sole source of water for every family's daily needs. He has also worked with systems in the Caribbean and The Bahamas, and created his own underground system at his home.

Curtis recognized the value of rainwater harvesting when new construction laws required him to spend vast amounts of money on infiltration - the practice of discharging rainwater into holes in the ground that eventually just drains back into the stormwater system without being used for irrigation, lavatories, laundry or other environmentally beneficial uses. As a member of the Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association, Curtis has designed and implemented irrigation and landscaping for hundreds of homes and has over 30 years of experience in property development and construction.
