Above Ground Domestic Rainwater System 5700 litre DAK2 for house and garden. The Balmoral surface mounted rainwater storage system is supplied as a kit for horticultural, agricultural, garden and limited domestic use - eg toilet flushing.
The graphic image above shows the main components of the DAK2 System and a schematic layout for a simple domestic and garden application. The item marked with a*is the Rain Backup in a Box®. This 12v automated valve will trickle mains water into the tank when it is very low due to sustained drought to allow the connected domestic appliances (e.g. toilet) to work. The pipework is shown for illustration purposes and will require insulation and correct installation so that no cross contamination can occur between the rainwater and mains water.
Why buy this system?
This kit will enable you to collect, filter, store and distribute rainwater for use in the house or in the garden. Above ground tanks do not keep water at a low stable temperature in the same way as underground tanks but with average rainfall in the UK, the water will be regularly refreshed. The water can be used for flushing toilets, power-washing, garden irrigation and outdoor cleaning jobs. Above ground tanks can not be used during periods of prolonged deep freezing.
More about the tank
Balmoral, the trusted British brand, is a company that designs and manufactures rainwater storage tanks in the UK using the highly efficient rotational moulding process.
Rotational moulding is a process ideally suited to producing hollow plastic products. By using additional post-moulding operations, complex components can be produced enabling the process to compete effectively with other moulding and extrusion practices. Rotational moulding differs from other processing methods in that the heating, melting, shaping, and cooling stages all occur after the polymer is placed in the mould, therefore no external pressure is applied during forming. This provides the following advantages:
The tanks have been rigorously tested to comply with the requirements of the United Kingdom Water Byelaws and Regulations when correctly installed.
About the pump

Rainwaterharvesting.co.uk has collated the components that are needed to divert water to the tank, filter out debris and retrieve it for uses from power washing to irrigation.
