5700 litre Complete Rainwater Harvesting garden system above ground. The Balmoral surface mounted rainwater storage system is supplied as a kit for horticultural, agricultural or garden use.
Why buy this system?
The illustration above shows a typical installation with incoming water filtered by the Rainus filter and the excess water collected by the overflow syphon and drained back to a downpipe. The pump will deliver the stored water at pressure to irrigation units, ponds or larger tanks. This is particularly applicable where the delivery point is above the water level of the tank - e.g. garden with incline.
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.
