Water Tank Filters
Before reaching your tank, the rain you
harvest accumulates a considerable amount of pollutants from your roof and
gutters. This can affect the quality and usability of tank supplies. Different
levels of purification affect how you can use the collected water. This is
the reason why our team has taken several steps to ensure that we protect the
health and interests of our customers.
We provide several specialised
options for greater diversity and a more
personalised feel to the services we provide. Rainfill can help you select
appropriate water filters in Australia depending on your usage and collection requirements.
Choosing the Right Water Filters
If you plan on using your tank water
for gardening and car washing only, then your water tank filters need not be as
thorough as one used for drinking water. We’ll ensure that the filter we
install is the one you actually need and not something you overpay for.
Inlet/First Flush Filters
Larger items like leaves and insects
can be filtered through a basket-like device and collected in an inlet system. First
flush devices work on the principle that most pollutants are washed away with
the first few litres of rain that fall. As such, the first 5-10 litres are
“flushed” or diverted away from the tank, with only the cleaner water collected
If you wish to connect your tank to
your bathroom or laundry, you may choose to install an in-line filter to purify
water as it leaves the tank. This type cleans by removing smaller particles
than the inlet baskets. These are ideally used in conjunction with inlet/first
UV Treatment Systems
UV treatment systems are used in
conjunction with the inlet, first flush and in-line devices. UV light
sterilises water, eliminating bacteria to provide potable supplies in line with
health department regulations. UV water filters are popular not just in homes
but also by local councils, food, dairy and brewing industries. This water
filtration treatment system has the advantage that no chemicals are
required and the taste of water is unaffected.
