Tuff Tech Bags Introduces New, Revolutionary Flexible Rain Barrels
New Product Perfect for Residential and Commercial Rainwater Harvesting
*For Immediate Release *
March 30, 2010* Tuff Tech Bags today announced the availability of Flexible Rain Barrels for rainwater and potable water storage. Previously manufactured for large dump trucks and semi-trailer trucks, these flexible and cost-effective bags are now sized for smaller storage capacities, widening the product's applications to include residential and commercial rainwater and potable water storage. Tuff Tech Bags offer a revolutionary rainwater harvesting storage option that is lower in price, can be installed in almost any location, is great for areas prone to freezing, and can be folded up easily and stored when not in use. **
Tuff Tech Bags are made with a coated nylon fabric that makes them lightweight and flexible. A patented manufacturing process ensures that they are UV-protected and freeze-proof. Tuff Tech Bags have a lighter environmental footprint compared to standard plastic barrels or tanks.
Robert Roszell founded Tuff Tech five years ago to address the problems inherent with hard plastic tanks. Roszell created Tuff Tech originally to produce a more flexible water storage solution for large dump trucks and semi-trailer trucks. Tuff Tech's first product offered:
* A lower center of gravity and much less liquid surge
* Easier installation and removal in large trucks than hard plastic
* More flexibility and easy storage in a small space
* More economical shipping
* Sizing for maximum liquid capacity of the vehicle
Reflecting upon the evolution of Tuff Tech Bags, Rozell states, "While our bags were first designed for large vehicles needing anti-icing, today people are now using Tuff Tech bags to haul water, haul sludge, fight fires, pre-wet surfaces, and irrigate and fertilize large areas. Now with smaller sizes available, Tuff Tech Bags are perfect for rainwater and potable water storage as well."
Tuff Tech recently expanded the variety of sizes of Tuff Tech Bags to range from five gallons up to 50,000 gallons. They can be installed almost anywhere — under downspouts, behind bushes or sheds, and even under decks in backyards. The product ships with everything needed for installation, including a downspout filter and diverter, 24 feet of flexible hose, stainless steel hose clamps, downspout straps and screws. Flexible Rain Barrels are available in a variety of 20 colors, common colors are green, white, beige and dark brown, and can be ordered online.
Complete kits start at $299 and can run as low as $0.30 per gallon for the largest sizes. In comparison, most large rain barrels run at least $2.00 per gallon, and that does not include all the required fittings. In addition, Tuff Tech Bags come with a 10-year guarantee and can be shipped anywhere economically, due to their lightness.
