May 15, 2012 - PRLog -- SAN RAMON, CALIFORNIA According to the U.S. Drought Monitor, a weekly federal tracking of drought, 61% of the lower 48 states are currently experiencing  "abnormally dry" or drought conditions. The severity of this year’s drought has sparked a renewed interest in rainwater harvesting and the use of rain barrels. However, the traditional approach of tapping into gutters and downspouts has limited widespread usage due to concerns about the cleanliness of roof run-off and the difficulties associated with rain barrel installation.

To address this issue, RainSaucers™ Inc., a manufacturer of standalone rainwater catchment systems, announced today the launch of the 59” version of its flagship product, the patent-pending RainSaucer™. The 100% U.S.-made RainSaucer™ works by collecting rain straight from the sky, and funneling it into virtually any storage medium. This results in rainwater collection that is:
- Cleaner:  due to the cleanable, food safe surface of the RainSaucer™
- Simpler: it sets up in 10 minutes with no tools required.
- More Flexible: the system can be placed right next to a garden or anywhere water will be needed

Key applications of the RainSaucer™ include sustainable gardening, small scale farming, and clean drinking water. The new 59 inch version features a 50% larger catchment surface which can collect up to 10 gallons per inch of rain. It also offers greater wind resistance and water flow due to its new implementation style.

“The 59 inch version was entirely developed based on customer feedback“ commented company co-founder and concept inventor Tom Spargo, “After we launched our first version in 2011, customers kept asking us for a larger size that would be wind stable out in the open plains. We also heard from customers in the South who wanted a higher flow rate to accommodate their frequent cloudbursts. The 59 inch version addresses these issues and is ideal for anyone interesting in having their own renewable source of clean water. In that sense, the RainSaucer™ serves the water industry the way the solar panel reduces an individual’s dependence on the power company.”

The 59 inch RainSaucer™ is now available for sale direct from RainSaucers™ Inc. at www.rainsaucers.com for $70 plus shipping. An introductory video is available for viewing at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UjUpbQTnn5g&feature=g-user-u
