From Derek 'Handeeman' Howlett:
We are living in uncertain times. Aquifer levels are dropping, wells are drying up and the need for water security is at an all time high for you, your family and business.
Whether your goal is to live entirely on rainwater or setup a hybrid system with a well or city water, I can help you with a rainwater tank and system design that will provide you with high quality water for a lifetime.
If you watch any of my projects or videos on YouTube, then you'll know that a focus on quality and craftsmanship is important to me. I want to extend that professionalism to you.
One thing I constantly tell myself is, "Let's do this right, so we only have to do it once". At Handeeman Contracting, my goal is to help you with a tank and system that will stand the test of time and supply you with clean safe water.
I look forward to hearing from you and what your goals are!

Frequently Asked Questions
Yes they do prevent algae growth. Algae grows in water in the presence of light. The steel does not allow any light into the tank and the foam roof seal between the roof and sidewalls do not let any light in either. The 20″ inlet strainer basket allows water to flow in from your roof but blocks out the UV light.
Tank sizing is specific on your collection surface, local rainwater patterns and water usage. It is best to contact us using the link at the bottom of the page so we can further help you find the tank that perfectly fits your needs.
It most certainly is. Rainwater is one of the purest sources of water that you can collect. Much cleaner than well or city water. Couple the rainwater with some basic sediment filters and a UV light sterilizer, you'll have great tasting drinking water.
