Unique 'Free-Standing' Water Tank Filters

Installation of Filtatank Rainwater Tank Filters is made quick and easy thanks to the unique ‘Free-Standing’ filter frame designed and made in Australia. Each system is ‘Plug and Play’, fully plumbed and ready to go. Systems can be installed next to rainwater tanks, out in a paddock or next to the house making Filtatank Rainwater filter Systems a brilliant option for all different applications. They can even be quickly transported to different locations such as building or mining sites where on-site water filtration is required.

All that is required is a flat base prepared and plumbing connection to the 25mm inlet and outlet water ports. Usually the power supply to the pressure pump can be shared to connect the U.V. system and the system is fully operational!

Each system includes a lockable polyethylene weather protection cover which is tough and durable to protect the system from the harsh Australian climate.

Why is Filtering Rainwater so Important?

Rain water tank filters are an important investment for the protection of your family and your home. They provide protection from dirt particles and organic matter which cause discolouration, taste and odour to the water and contribute to corrosion and blockages of household appliances such as the dishwasher, washing machine and hot water service.
Rainwater can contain harmful bacteria such as E-Coli, giardia, Salmonella, Campylobacter and cryptosporidium which can easily be transferred through animal faecal matter from birds, possums and vermin that may come into contact with the rainwater supply.
The young, the elderly, and those with compromised immune systems are among the most susceptible to infection because their intestines are less resilient to the effects of bacteria. Water tank filtration systems with ultraviolet sterilisation offer a safe, chemical-free solution to keep these vulnerable individuals safe from harmful microorganisms that may be present in the rainwater supply.

Filtering Rainwater

Neglected tanks can become polluted with leaves, pollen, slime and sludge from wet systems. The water becomes a broth and has a strong smell of ‘rotten egg gas’ or sulfur dioxide.

Rusty old tanks create unwanted taste to the water and should be replaced. Rusty holes in the roof can allow vermin to drown in the tank adding to the risk of dangerous bacteria levels.

Holes in a tank roof, water inlet pipes and  manhole covers left open will allow access for possums, vermin and even cats seeking water. Once inside they drown, decay and heavily pollute the water.

Testing can be performed to detect bacteria such as E.coli, cryptosporidium and giardia. With varying rainwater conditions throughout the year, filtration with U.V. sterilisation is a safe option.

People often neglect their rainwater tanks and water tank filters by mistake. Life is just so busy, especially with young families. Things that you can’t see often get overlooked and forgotten about. That is why installation of a Rainwater Filtration System with Ultraviolet Sterilisation creates a permanent safety barrier and is such an important investment for the protection of your families health.

FIRST STAGE OF

FILTRATION

The First Stage of Rainwater Filtration is achieved through a Twin or Triple Cartridge 20″ x 4.5″ rainwater filter system. Dirt particles, colour, and taste will be captured by filter cartridges. These systems have a large surface area meaning there is no noticeable restriction to flow or pressure of the water supply. On average, filter cartridge changes can be performed on an annual basis with this size of filter cartridge. Our high quality filter housings carry Watermark Certification meaning they are approved for use on mains or rainwater application and are going to last the test of time.

The amount of sludge that is captured by the Rainwater Filter Cartridges in just 12-months is quite shocking.  The pressure pump effectively vacuums the sludge from the lower part of your rainwater tank and pumps it directly into your house and if consumed, your body has to filter out the sludge!

The difference between Twin & Triple filters

The difference between the Filtatank twin and triple cartridge filtration system is the addition of a 5-micron poly- spun filter cartridge in stage two of the triple system. This cartridge is designed to capture finer particles following the 10-micron pleated first stage cartridge. This will protect the silver carbon cartridge which is only designed to absorb colour, taste and odour and doesn’t do well if receiving a lot of dirt particles. The twin system is ideal for the standard size family home with decent quality rainwater. If the water is quite dirty and brown in colour and the is a high demand on the filter system then we recommend installing the triple cartridge filter system.

SECOND STAGE OF

FILTRATION

After Stage one has removed the dirt and sediment particles, Sterilization of the Rainwater supply is achieved through a high quality Ultraviolet Sterilisation system before it enters the house.

It is very important that a high quality U.V. system is installed because not all U.V. systems are the same. VIQUA is proud to be the world’s largest supplier of residential and light commercial UV water disinfection systems, providing safe water without the use of chemicals. Viqua has more than 35 years of experience in the residential UV business.

How do Ultraviolet Sterilisation systems work?

Ultra-Violet water sterilisation systems are an effective and economical way of eliminating 99.9% of harmful bacteria form the rainwater supply. The water is exposed to Ultra-Violet light as it passes through the stainless steel UV chamber. This process exposes any harmful bacteria to Ultra-Violet light at a wavelength of 254nm. The UV light penetrates the cell walls of harmful, illness-causing microorganisms by attacking their DNA which eliminates their ability to reproduce.

All Filtatank filtration systems arrive well packaged, fully assembled ready for installation
