Solar Shield | Water Tank Accessories | Rain Harvesting by BMCo
Designed to fit under your tank screen, our Solar Shield’s
patented design blocks sunlight to prevent algae growth.
Its cleverly designed fins evenly distribute and calm the water

and ensuring that water stays at its best.

  • Installation
    1. If you already have a tank screen installed, you must remove it prior to installing the Solar Shield.
    2. Place the Solar Shield in the tank inlet hole so that the arms rest on the top surface of the tank and the Solar Shield is suspended in the inlet. Rotate the Solar Shield to align the screw points with the existing screw holes in the tank, if there are any.
    3. Place the tank screen over the Solar Shield, making sure to align the screw points with the Solar Shield arm lugs.
    4. The tank screen should drop into place so that the outer rim is flush with the surface of the tank.
    5. Secure the tank screen and Solar Shield in place using screws that are suitable for the tank material. The Solar Shield will accept screws up to 8 gauge in size.
  • Maintenance

    When properly installed, your Solar Shield should be maintenance-free. However, we recommend to occasionally to inspect and maintain the Tank Screen above it.

    Alternatively, you may wish to consider installing a Maelstrom Filter rather than using a Solar Shield and Tank Screen.
