Paving the path towards a sustainable future
Maui Greenscapes is now offering an Eco Products Maui Rain water harvesting
system originally developed in Australia that we consider to be the first real
advancement in water catchment technology since the invention of galvanized tanks
with liners after WWII.
Incoming water is directed to the bottom of the tank where it encourages the previously
stored water to move gradually upward.
The cleanest, most oxygenated (aerobic) water is near the surface of a storage tank. In
the “Eco Clean” system the water is supplied to the pump (pump can be in the tank or
outside the tank) by a flexible potable water line up to floating inlet (screened check
valve) about 6” from the surface thereby always accessing the cleanest most
oxygenated water available in the tank.
EPM offers the new Eco Clean rainwater system as a standalone system or with an
ultra quiet stainless steel water pump system.
Both pump systems come with all the proper accessories;
• EcoClean System without Pump
• EcoClean System with .5hp 120VAC Water Pump
• EcoClean System with 1. hp and 1.5hp 230VAC Water Pump
• All the roof water is filtered of leaves and debris before entering the water tank.
• The water enters the storage tank at the bottom through a "calmed" inlet instead of at
the top of the tank pushing the stored water toward the oxygenated area near the top.
• Innovative Dual siphon overflow system has several advantages over the
• The revolutionary "Floating Intake" system maintains the water pump intake at the
cleanest location in the tank. Instead of near the bottom where sediment settles.
• "In Tank" pump system is ultra quiet and requires no "pump shed". Automatic pump
controllers have a "low water cut off feature" to prevent damage to the pump when
there is no water supply available.
The “Eco Clean” Rainwater System Works Like This:
The rainwater enters the tank through a 4” PVC pipe either through the bottom or over
the top of the tank.
We recommend in most situations that the rain harvest from the roof comes
underground to the tank and in through the bottom then the cover is not disturbed and
there are no visible pipes on the outside of the tank or through the cover.
additional rainfall comes through the two wide mouth skimmers and carries the debris
out the additional rainfall comes through the two wide mouth skimmers and carries the
debris out the bottom of the tank and away from the foundation. The overflow water can
then be directed to plants, trees, or a pond. We have two sizes available sizes of the
whole roof water supply filters as shown below:
The Eco Clean “skimmer” overflow has two wide mouth entrances that skim whatever
is floating on the surface of the stored water. The skimmer overflow incorporates a
siphon system which prevents any creature from crawling up the pipes and getting
access to the tank. The overflow system uses a 4” PVC pipe just like the incoming
water so it can keep up heavy incoming rainfall.
In a conventional water storage system whether well, catchment or metered water the
outgoing water supply is on or near the bottom of the tank where the water is more
laden with silt and less oxygenated.
In the new Eco Clean system the domestic water is supplied to a pump by a new
“floating intake” system. Eco Products uses a system consisting of a flexible potable
water hose terminating with a screened check valve. (The screened inlet protects the
pump and the check valve prevents water from going back from the pump system into
the tank) There is a floating ball which keeps the water supply inlet approximately 6”
from the water surface thereby utilizing the most oxygenated and cleanest water in the
tank for the pump supply. As the water level changes the float keeps the intake at the
optimum point at all times.
The Eco Clean system components work together to insure the cleanest possible
rainwater in and out of your water storage tank.
To guarantee maximum water purity we recommended installing a Whole House Filter
and UV system so that all the water in your entire home will be totally safe. Filter Button
The Eco Clean Rainwater system implements “state of the art" technology” that make it
“best rainwater system available in the world”.

water in the world because of its softness and light natural
