The Rhino I Heavy-Duty Bottom Drain is a must have item in your pond. With thousands of trouble free installs, from small home ponds to major commercial fish handling tanks to hydroponic field beds, the Rhino I is a very durable product that weighs in at over 4 pounds. Watch out for material conserving injection molded drains that although are produced in standard sizes, they have so little material that they can weigh in as little as 1#, and do not even have a Sch 40 basic plumbing rating.
The Rhino II brings commercial quality to your pond at an economical price. All Rhino drains are made from Schedule 80 PVC and designed by computer generated machine fabrication and are thermal welded by hand to assure top quality dependable welds. All Rhino drains can be installed with extreme confidence in any application by beginners and experts alike. A bottom drain can be said to be one of the most important parts of a pond installation, in that its integrity is paramount to the success of the entire project. Compare the engineering of Rhino bottom drains to any on the market, and you will see the evident quality.
Rhino 1 Bottom Drain Features:
- Thicker flanges and liner attachment ring that will not flex, distort or crack
- All attachments are precision machine fitted for extra strength with no need for gap filling
- All joints are hand welded resulting in more strength than the speed welds used on other drains.
- Rhino drains do not use any injection molded components which would weaken the structure.
What is the key difference in a Rhino Drain?
Rhino drains are not injection molded! Injection molding is typically used to mass produce products for the retail market. Other than mass production, injection molded products are typically designed to use minimal quantities of raw material to produce products in shape and form at the minimum amount of cost which of course allows those products to either be sold cheaply and/or produce high profits.
A bottom drain is the first thing to be installed in your pond, and the last thing that you want to fail! Install a Rhino Drain in your pond with confidence!
This is a good quality bottom drain. It's very solid and the price was better than others that I looked at. Overall, I'm happy
Would buy again. These look like they are well made.
these are great
I purchased 15 of these for a large commercial project. 1 was damaged in shipment which I was able to exchange it without hassle. Good service.
Overall, I like these bottom drains a lot. The fact that you can remove the lid easily without having to unscrew it is a very nice feature. in our old pond, I had another type of bottom drain where I had to unscrew the lid and in the process snapped the neck which was a big pain to fix. Especially since my pond was 6 ft deep! Overall I'm happy I made the switch to the rhino bottom drains.
