What makes Filtatank filtration Systems the best choice?
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.

Sterilisation by Viqua
Viqua is proud to be the world’s largest supplier of residential certified UV water disinfection systems. With more than 40 years of experience in the residential UV business, the expertise and care that goes into the development of Viqua products is second to none. Viqua ultraviolet technology will disinfect your drinking water, ensuring 99.9% of bacteria are destroyed, keeping you and your family safe from microbiological contaminants.
Viqua uses the most advanced UV technology on the market and is designed to provide you with years of trouble free operation with minimal maintenance required. The systems are backed by a Ten-year limited warranty for the UV chamber.
Filtatank systems include stainless steel water pressure guages that indicate inlet and out let pressure across the filtration system. 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.
Viqua U.V. systems use a custom connection plug with builtin earth leakage and safety features meaning the lamp cannot be activated when out of the chamber protecting the users eyes from harmful U.V. light.
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.
Watch the clear filter housings in operation:
Unique clear filter housings allow quick and easy visual inspection of the filter cartridge condition at all times. Clear housings are only possible thanks to the polyethylene protection cover which keeps the filter system out of direct sunlight.

Fully Assembled System For Quick & Easy Installation
Quick and easy installation of Filtatank systems is 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 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.

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.
1 x 10 Micron Polyester Pleated cartridge for dirt and sediment removal
1 x 5 Micron Polyester Spun cartridge for finer silt particle removal
1 x 5 Micron Silver Carbon Block for colour, taste and odour removal
1 x Filter housing opening handle
1 x 60w genuine Viqua U.V. lamp
2 x User manual
Each Filtatank rainwater filtration system is hand built and assembled in Australia by the team at The Tank Doctor. With over 15-years experience selling and installing rainwater filtration systems, you are assured of an extremely high quality product with excellent after sales support.
