Product Description

What makes Filtatank filtration Systems the best choice?

Filtatank FT 1000UV Whole House Rainwater Filtration System

Amazing Quality, Warranty & Performance!

Filtatank rainwater filtration systems are made from the highest quality components available on the market to provide a superior quality product that is very simple to maintain and operate.

Designed to removed sediment and 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. UV offers a safe, chemical-free solution to keep these vulnerable individuals safe from harmful microorganisms that may be present in the rainwater supply.

This is helpful to indicate when the filtration cartridges require servicing or replacement. Usually the filter cartridges are replaced on an annual basis, depending on the volume of water usage and the quality of the water supply.

The U.V. lamp is replaced on an annual basis to ensure the correct wavelength of light is being delivered. The U.V. ballast power supply has a handy digital day count down timer and buzzer to indicate when lamp replacement is required.

Mains / Rainwater Filtration System Combination

When connected to auto-switching pressure pumps that select either mains water or rainwater, the FT-1000UV filtration system will remove sediment and bacteria from both the rainwater and mains water but will also remove chlorine from the mains water supply. The chlorine is absorbed by the silver impregnated carbon block filter cartridge in the second stage of the filter system. Removal of Chlorine has huge health benefits when consuming and bathing in the water and protects your washing from colour bleaching.
