Rainwater Harvesting Exhibit at the National Self Build & Renovation Centre
Britain's smartest rainwater harvesting equipment supplier and manufacturer opened its permanent exhibition stand at The National Self Build & Renovation Centre in Swindon. It is the UK's only permanent exhibition centre for self builders and renovators. In the Trade Village over 240 suppliers showcase their latest products. Visitors can walk through two permanent houses, view cut-away foundations, floors, roofs, septic tanks, and find out how to make their homes more environmentally friendly and less costly to run and maintain. Visitors use their bar code scanner to choose how they would like their selected exhibitors to contact them or what information to send.
The RainWaterHarvesting.co.uk stand features an interactive light fantastic display of their award-winning Rain Director controller and smart header tank. Visitors can press several pulsating buttons to illuminate the pipe run and water flow direction in each mode e.g. rain flowing into the rainwater harvesting storage tank, being pump to the header tank, flowing to the appliances etc. This helps gain a clear understanding of the way the Rain Director works. The stand also features the top part of a full size 2700 litre Graf Carat rainwater harvesting tank, a high definition video showing how the tank gets installed, and the relevant pumps and filters.
The image shows a section of the exhibit with the cutaway of the Graf tank turret, the information display and the video screen.
Besides materials, visitors find information on how to find land to buy, advice on financing, mortgages, insurance, planning and overall cost estimates for projects. Experts are on hand to answer specific queries on all aspects of projects, and seminars run throughout the day.
The centre also holds regular special events, such as the Big Green Home Show, 23 to 25 October 2009, which showcases products and services to help homeowners make their properties more sustainable, and, of course, rainwater harvesting features strongly!
Entry to the National Self Build and Renovation Centre is free, 10 till 5.50. The centre is closed on Sunday and Tuesday.
