Rain Harvesting’s 500mm Solar Shield (TASS26) fits under your existing tank screen and prevents algae growth by blocking sunlight from entering into your tank inlet. This size is compatible with the 500mm Tank Screen TATS02.
Solar Shield Features and Benefits
- Reduces sunlight to help preventalgae growth in your tank
- Calms the entry of water into the tank to minimise sediment resuspension
- Easy fits under your existing Rain Harvesting tank screen
- Protects quality of your stored rainwater
Blocks out sunlight helping to prevent algae growth
Sunlight stimulates the growth of algae in stored water so it is important to exclude as much light as possible from the interior of your tank. Normally, sunlight can easily enter the tank via the tank screen, but with the solar shield you can see how much of the sunlight can be blocked out.
Calms water inflow to prevent sediment resuspension
During a rain event, new inflowing water can disturb sediment at the bottom of your tank, spreading it throughout the water. The clever design of the solar shield calms the flow of water and disperses the water more evenly into your tank which prevents the resuspension of sediment that may have settled on the base of your tank. This allows your pump to draw on cleaner water.
