Drink only the Very Best Water from your tank
The Tank-Float system draws the rainwater from approximately 300mm below the surface of the tank water. At this point the water is the most ‘aerobic’ or oxygenated area of the tank which is the healthiest resulting in better tasting and smelling water. The unique design of the Tank-Float system allows for installation to a rainwater tank that is either full or empty without having to manually get inside the tank.
The Tank-Float system automatically adjusts to the correct suction level of the tank at all times and can be installed to concrete, poly, metal, fibre-glass, poly-lined tanks either above or below ground. Installation is typically completed in less than an hour and has an immediate result of cleaner, clearer, better tasting water.
Particles that enter the rainwater tank each time it rains sink to the tank floor where a thick sludge forms. This sludge layer is made up of decaying leaf, dirt and animal matter which feeds germs and bacteria like Giardia, Salmonella and E-coli. The breakdown of plant and animal material depletes oxygen and creates methane gas which increases taste and odour to the water supply. Traditionally it’s at this point where the rainwater supply is drawn out by the pressure pump and delivered into the home.
The bottom of a rainwater tank can be a nasty place made up from deposits of dirt, leaves, bird and animal waste and other contaminants creating a thick sludge. Here bacteria thrive and multiply as the sludge decomposes.
Rainwater drawn out at this level will often smell horrible and taste awful!
"The Tank-Float system will give an immediate result"
The bottom of most rainwater tanks is a nasty place made up of sludge and bacteria which makes the water taste poor quality. Although cleaning the sludge from a rainwater tank floor is still highly recommended, the Tank-Float system will give an immediate result if cleaning is not possible and will ensure all future tank water is supplied to the home from the highest water level in the tank.
Where a rainwater filtration system is installed at the pressure pump, the Tank-Float system will greatly extend the workable life of the filter cartridges as they are no longer required to filter dirty water drawn from the bottom of the tank. This will further ensure only the very best tank water is being delivered at all times.
The Tank-Float water suction line is installed through the rainwater tank roof and then plumbed down the outer tank wall to the inlet point of the existing pressure pump. Connection is made with a simple ‘T- Junction’ and an isolation tap. This allows for the original tank tap outlet to be isolated and the Tank-Float suction line to then be opened allowing the clean water to enter the pressure pump. It’s that easy!
Tank-Float top suction system is designed and assembled in Australia using only the best quality poly and stainless steel components along with the highest quality food-grade suction hose also made right here in Australia.
