How does it work?

The Rain Director® pumps through a control unit, up to a "smart header tank" usually situated in a loft space. Inside the header tank are two level sensors, upper and lower. The system fills the header tank to the upper sensor then does not use the pump again until virtually all of the water is used and the lower sensor is reached. This "batch filling" process means the pump cycles 1-2 times per day, in comparison to every time a toilet is flushed with traditional systems.  
Coupled with the large reduction in energy and pump wear, the Rain Director® has numerous benefits in comparison to others on the market.

  • Full mains override, providing water in every eventuality: Low rainwater, pump failure or powercut.
  • Smart user functionality.
  • Ensures water quality by cycling water in the header tank if no activity is registered within 72 hours.
  • 3 stage, electronic and physical overflow prevention system.
  • Cost effective and simple installation: push fit plumbing and image based installation guide.
  • Stylish and discreet control panel.
  • Fully WRAS approved. International Green Apple award winner, Waterwise approved, HBR Product innovation award winner. 

Easy to install

Our F-line flat tank has become a customer favourite due to its simple and cost effective install. Up to 70% less excavation than an equivalent sized "deep dig" tank. Great for high water table areas or heavy clay when deep excavations cause unnecessary hassle and costs. All without the need for a costly concrete backfill.
Remember, these tanks are exceptionally strong: with an optional upgrade to vehicle loading shaft and steel lid for driveways etc.

*Overall height allows for 100mm compacted aggregate

**Using a VS60 (635mm Shaft)

The overall height difference above is because up to 400mm can be cut off the 635mm shaft on site so as to achieve your exact invert level.

* Please note that the pump supplied with this system has a minimum operational throughput of 10 L / minute. If the flow drops below this then the pump will potentially hunt or go into dry run protection mode. If you are using for example a drip feed irrigation system or low flow devices with this pump then we recommend installing a pressure vessel.
