The FOUNDER

Richard Hanson


A 1989 graduate of Georgia Tech, Richard has worked in the field of water pressure control his entire career. First as a manufacturer's rep for SyncroFlo, Watts Regulator, and other control valve companies, covering southeast Georgia and portions of Atlanta. Then 20 years at SyncroFlo, in every department: Production, Purchasing, Engineering, Marketing, Sales, IT, Finance, Accounting, Field Service, Commissioning, etc.  It was there that he discovered rainwater harvesting, starting in the the late 90's with Gwinnett County Schools' use of alternative water supplies for turf irrigation, cisterns in Puerto Rico, and culminating in offering treatment and pumping skids.

After a friendly parting, now moving back into the rep business for Georgia, eager to find new ways to serve the water control needs in the commercial, industrial, and residential markets. His goal is for rainwater harvesting to be part of the design of most projects, in areas where stormwater management is required.
