    Rain curtains are nice, if you have a high end market to sell to. Saw a video of one on display in Japan that displayed messages and pictures. Kinda neat.

    Its not hard to build your own using pvc as long as you have a jig or a drill press to create your holes exactly the same and in a straight line and that's the key. The reset is basic knowledge of pumps. I've built them for homeshow displays but that was a long long ago. Like tad said its a very high end market for them.

    It could be used for some eye-popping ad presentations. Sure to get everyone's attention!!!

    I ordered the 25 dollar plans on the web for fun. I had a pretty good idea how to make them already, but he had some good tips though from his trial and error that probably saved me some aggrivation. Pretty inexpensive feature with a lot of impact. We did this at our spring home show display. It was worth the 25 bucks. He gives you about 9 pages of step by step plans for a couple different rain curtain styles and options.

    We wound up setting our rain curtain a bit higher than anticipated and our pumps had a little trouble with the head volume. Order bigger pumps than they recomend or be real careful about the total head.

    Have fun,
