Smoothing Inlet

Figure Number:  RH9530SI-04
Product Function:
The Smoothing Inlet is an all stainless steel device that fits on the 4" inlet pipe in the storage tank. It is used to prevent the agitation of sediment at the rainwater inlet into the storage tank. The smoothing inlet also helps aerate the water as it enters the tank.

Rainwater Harvesting promotes “Green” in the following ways:
  • It lessens demand on the municipal water supply.
  • It makes efficient use of rainwater which would either evaporate or make its way to sewer lines.
  • It diminishes flooding, erosion, and the flow to storm water drains.
  • It reduces the contamination of surface water with sediments, fertilizers and pesticides from rainwater run-off resulting in cleaner lakes, rivers, oceans and other receivers of storm water.
  • It can be used to recharge groundwater.
  • It is good for irrigation and plants thrive because stored rainwater is free from pollutants as well as salts, minerals, and other natural and man-made contaminants.
  • It is good for laundry use as rainwater is soft and lowers the need for detergents.
  • It adds life to equipment dependent on water to operate, as rainwater does not produce corrosion or scale like hard water.
  • Can be used as a potable water supply
  • Ideal for developing  or disaster-impacted areas with limited water
  • It can help achieve LEED® Green Building Credit under Water Use Reduction; Innovative Wastewater Technology; Stormwater Design: quality Control; Stormwater Design: quantity Control; Water Efficiency Landscaping;  and Innovation in Design.
  • Promotes good public relations showing positive environmental concern
