Keeping your water healthy and safe

There are basic considerations that apply to all rainwater harvesting in keeping your tanks clean, pumps and accessories operating well and your water top quality. Additional considerations come into play depending how you intend to use your water, including protecting your appliances and the health of your family. There are a range of dedicated and combination products that you can consider when installing a tank at home or work.

  • Roof and Gutters. 
    • Basic roadblocks such as the roof being in poor condition, overhanging branches that may allow animals access and use of lead paint need to be cleared before thinking of installing a water tank for household use.
    • Keeping your roof and gutters clean is a first part of collecting clean water, installing Gutter Mesh is a good first step.
  • Leaf Catchers and pre-Tank Filters.
    • Leaf Eaters/Beaters keep leaves and larger debris out of the system and keep the water flowing. Secondary filters keep mosquitos from entering the system at this point.
  • First Flush Diverters
    • The first fall of rain washes the roof. It can include dust, bird and animal droppings, leaves and other debris. First Flush Diverters prevent this water from entering the tank reducing potential contaminents.
  • Tank Protection
    • Any entry to the tank should be fitted with second stage pre-tank filters with screens or valves to prevent mosquitos entering. 
    • Overflows should be protected from a blockage of the outlet creating storm water backup.
  • Pumps 
    • Pumps can distribute water o where you need it around the home, garden or workplace.
    • Change over devices can provide mains water back up where required.
  • Last Stage Water Filters and Treatment (post tank)
