2700 litre Complete Rainwater Harvesting Direct Feed System above ground. The above ground rainwater storage system is supplied as a kit for horticultural, agricultural, garden use and domestic use for toilets. Complete with all of the components required to capture, filter and distribute your rainwater. A mains water backup unit is also provided with this kit to ensure your tank never runs dry.
Why buy this system?
* Above ground location so no excavation required
* Filtered rainwater with built in overflow
* Powerful pressure sensitive pump for immediate delivery to the tap
* Trusted manufacturer of single piece tanks
* Mains water backup unit included
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. We advise that the pump should be submerged in the tank wherever possible to protect it from damage and freezing. The pipe layout is for illustration purposes but demonstrates how you can feed directly from the submersible pump to the toilets.

The Rain Backup in a Box® is WRAS Approved ( WRAS No. 2006006 ) and is fitted inside the building where the occupiers can see and hear it.
WRAS Approval demonstrates compliance as it is granted directly by representatives of the water suppliers. It is accepted by every water supplier in the UK.
The Rain Backup in a Box is a simple mains top up device that puts about 250 litres of mains water into your above ground tank when the water level runs dry.
Limitation on Use: Note that the Rain Backup in a Box® is intended for domestic and light garden use. If you run two garden taps with a high power pump (like the HydroForce, Steel Pumps or Divertron 1100 watt pumps) then the outflow of water is higher than the inflow from the backup device. When the underground storage tank is empty the pump will have no water and its dry-run-protection will turn it off. Some pumps need resetting at the mains in this case which is tedious. Most users get round this issue by having mains water taps available alongside the rainwater outlet so that they can switch to mains for garden use when the underground tank is empty. The Rain Backup in a Box® will continue to keep up with demand in the house for toilets and washing machine.
HydroForce ™ Rainwater Harvesting Clean Water Pump Series 4 is a submersible pressure sensitive rainwater tank pump – electronically controlled, centrifugal roto-dynamic with no reciprocating parts. Built-in non-return valve and double dry-run protection.
Manufactured in the UK and designed for rainwater harvesting systems.
