Harvesting rainwater is safer with a float system for your water tank.

In recent years, the idea of ‘going green’ and adopting sustainability measures has become increasingly popular among homeowners. One strategy that many Australian homeowners have thought about is implementing a rainwater tank. By harvesting rainwater and using it for everyday household tasks—from washing clothes to flushing toilets—homeowners can reduce their water consumption and waste and save money.

The Importance of Installing a Float System for Your Water Tank

Our patented tank float innovation delivers numerous vital benefits, including the following.

  • Drawing water from the healthiest part of the tank: Our tank float is designed to float at the highest level of water in your rainwater tank. The water near the top of your tank is more oxygenated than the water at lower depths, which means it is also healthier and safer to drink. The tank float system floats at this level and uses suction to draw water from the top of the tank for use in your home.
  • Delivering better-tasting, better-smelling water: Not only is more aerobic (or oxygenated) water healthier and safer to drink, but it also tastes and smells better. Even if you aren’t planning to use your rainwater for drinking, it’s much more pleasant to use rainwater for cleaning or laundry when it doesn’t have a nasty odour.
  • Helping you avoid potentially dangerous waterborne bacteria: When you harvest rainwater, you are bound to collect at least a little bit of dirt, animal matter, and plant matter. This debris forms a layer of sludge at the bottom of the tank. You don’t want to drink this sludge or incorporate it into the water you use around the house. However, in addition to being unsightly and unpleasant to work with, this sludge feeds dangerous waterborne bacteria (such as E-coli and giardia) and eats up oxygen, creating methane gas as it breaks down. Using water that is higher in the tank helps you to avoid contamination and sludge.
