Fitzwater Raintank

The Fitzwater Rain Tank is a stainless steel rain tank designed for manufacturer Shift. The impetus for the design was to create a rain tank for the modern home. With virtually no alternative to ubiquitous blue barrels, Fitzwater created a new form factor and aesthetic that brought sustainable practices to a new audience.

The monolithic rectilinear tank is formed from an entire sheet of stainless steel welded and placed atop a base.

The Fitzwater has been featured in many publications and continues to be offered by Shift here.
