8400 Litres Underground Rainwater Harvesting Header Tank System - Twin Neck
This complete 8400 litre header tank rainwater harvesting system is ideal for collecting and storing rainwater to use in your home for tasks such as flushing the toilet, washing clothes or washing dishes. The 8400 litre system is suitable for medium sized installations such as a 3 or 4 bedroom house.
The header tank system uses an 82 litre tank and water is pumped to the header tank directly from the rainwater tank via the pump. When demand is placed on the header tank, water is gravity fed to the point of use. Should the rainwater in your tank reach a low level, the header tank will continue to be depleted until the level has reached the mains water top-up level. At this point, mains water is sent directly to the header tank.
As the pump is starting and stopping less frequently than in direct pressure systems, power consumption and life of the pump will be much better.
This system includes:
- 8400 Litre twin neck polyethylene tank
- 2x pedestrian rated telescopic neck with lids
- 82 Litre header tank
- Push fit DN 100 drainage connections
- Pre-fitted Compact filter with calming inlet
- Submersible pump
8400 Litre Tank
The tank is manufactured in the UK from virgin Polyethylene and is used mainly for storing harvested rainwater, however it can also be used for storing water from other sources such as springs and wells.
The ribbed design provides added strength and allows for environmentally friendly pea-gravel backfills, eliminating the need for concrete bases and backfills to be used in most installations.
The tank has been designed to ensure optimal strength and is shorter in height compared to other tanks on the market today. This means that a shallower hole is needed to accommodate the tank (this can be as much as 500mm less).
The tank features a large 600mm access which allows for inspection and maintenance of the tank and its contents.
The telescopic neck and lid push fits into the neck of the tank and a rubber seal towards the bottom ensures a tight fit. The telescopic part of the neck can be extended by up to 300mm and can be tilted in any direction by up to 5 degrees.
As standard, a compact filter is pre-installed into the neck of the tank. The filter removes leaves, grit and other debris from the rainwater passing through. The filter requires very little maintenance, usually about 3-4 times each year and is very quick and easy to clean with no consumables, just lift, rinse and replace.
The compact filter is suitable for roof areas up to 150m².
Submersible Pump and Controls
The pump delivers approximately 4 bar of pressure and up to 3500 litres/hr of flow and is automatically started at the point of use. The pump also has dry run protection as standard.
The pump is suspended from a pre-fitted hook in the neck of the tank by a stainless steel chain which allows the pump to be lifted out for maintenance. A large handle allows easy lifting when necessary.
Each system is supplied with the filter, calmed inlet and drainage connections pre-fitted inside the tank. Also supplied are all non-standard plumbing fittings, a roll of 32mm MDPE (15 metres), marker tape and ID packs.
