Direct Feed or Gravity Fed?

Direct Feed or Gravity Fed - What is The Difference?

Direct Feed or Gravity Fed - What is The Difference?

If you have room in your loft for a small header tank consider
the Multi-Award Winning Rain Director® system.

Gravity Fed Rain Director System

Great! The gravity fed Rain Director® system has advantages over any other system available. The rainwater stored in the underground tank is pumped up into the smart header tank located in the loft once or twice a day. It then uses gravity to feed the toilets and washing machines. Less electricity required means running costs are less than 1p/person/day. Cleverly designed so that water is guaranteed in any eventuality.

If your property has the loft converted for extra living space then consider
the WRAS Approved Rain Backup in a Box® system.

Direct Feed Rain Backup in a Box System

Fine, there a couple of options available:

  • First, if there is a cupboard or void that could be adapted to hold a header tank then maybe the Rain Director® system could be considered. The Smart Header Tank size is 100 litres, 600mm x 490mm x 500mm. It must be positioned at least 1.5m higher than any toilets and 5m higher than the washing machine.
  • The other option is a direct feed Rain Backup in a Box® system. Water is pumped directly to the toilets and washing machines. Simple to install and fully WRAS approved so accepted by all UK water authorities.
