Rain Activ storm attenuation system manufactured by RainWater Harvesting Ltd controls the rate of storm water discharge from site as well as being able to utilise the rainwater for non potable use within your home and garden. Full specification service and planning authority recognised Micro Drainage™ calculations are supplied with each system.
We provide calculations as this is a bespoke system. Please call us on 01733 405 111
The Rain Activ Dual Direct Feed System gives you the ability to enjoy the benefits of rainwater harvesting in your home and garden whilst at the same time acting as part of your on site SuDS solution.
The underground tanks come in a range of sizes from 1,500 litres to 15,000 litres.
The bottom portion of the tank is used to store the required rainwater for use within the garden. The top portion of the tank is the attenuation capacity as specified by the Micro Drainage™ calculations that are generated for each situation.
As well as simply reducing costs, Rain Activ far outperforms its competitors in numerous key areas:
* Industry leading, ultra low storm water discharge rates.
* Professional calibration.
* Arrives to site fully assembled and ready to install.
* No moving or consumable parts, fully self-cleaning.
* Discharge rate calibrated between 0.05 – 1.95 litre per second.
* Add rainwater harvesting for a very small extra cost.
The first part is to calculate the attenuated volume required based on the information listed below along with the required discharge rate of the site.
Once we have done this we then use a Tank Size Calculator to establish the amount of rainwater you would need to store to supply water to your home. This is then added onto the attenuated volume as specified by the Micro Drainage™ calculations.
Rain Activ utilises a simple to install, pre-assembled, shallow dig rainwater storage tank, along with a self cleaning filter and a controlled discharge valve. Rainwater from the roof is heavily filtered as it enters the tank, removing any particles larger than 1mm. Once the rainwater reaches a set point within the tank it is discharged at a controlled rate. Due to the quality of filtration involved, a very small orifice can be used without the risk of blockage. For this reason, Rain Activ can provide industry-leading rates of discharge as low as 0.05 litres per second.
Every system sold is bespoke, and calibrated to each site’s requirements. Our engineers use Micro Drainage™ hydraulic modelling software to ensure the system discharges at the desired peak rate during a storm event. As the system already contains various key components, such as the tank and high quality filtration, the addition of a submersible pump and management system turns the system into a full domestic rainwater harvesting system.
Rain Activ delivers new industry low levels of storm water discharge. The systems can be calibrated to provide a calculated discharge value as low as 0.05 litres per second up to 2 litres per second dependant on site requirement. With discharge levels this low, Rain Activ provides a solution for sites that have previously found meeting storm attenuation criteria difficult or impossible. These include:
* Smaller developments (1-10 homes) where the rate of storm water is not great enough for effective use of vortex flow control.
* Greenfield sites.
* Sites with very low discharge rates stipulated by planning.
* Contaminated sites.
Rain Activ produces a much flatter discharge curve than other storm attenuation systems. This means the system can help reduce stress on the drainage network over a greater range of storm, rather than being calibrated to one specific event.
Our design team calibrates every Rain Activ bespoke to site requirement; both the peak discharge rate and volume of attenuation. Our extensive hydraulic modelling, lab testing and field testing provides academically supported data in order to calibrate the system correctly.
1) Required run off rate.
2) Roof size.
3) Geographical location.
4) Potential water usage (if combining with Rainwater Harvesting).
Using the data provided above, our experts use Micro Drainage™ hydraulic modelling software to test the system and provide documentation ready for immediate submission to planning authorities.

2. Minimum installation depth
3. Easy and quick to install
4. Small excavation pit and little earth excavation preserves your garden
5. Ideal for installation in new or exisiting properties
6. Can be installed in ground water up to the shoulder of the tank body
7. Market leaders in the Rainwater Harvesting Domestic Market
The F-line flat tank can be installed into much higher water tables than a standard round tank. If you don’t know what your water table will be like in the winter, you’re safer to install a flat tank.
The F-Line tanks are flat and the installation depth is 60% less than other rainwater tanks. The excavation can be up to 70% less, meaning little earth excavation, easy handling and less cost for you!
The small excavation pit is easily filled in and your garden will look just like it did before.
Using your digger to lower the tank into the hole is incredibly easy because of the square / rectangular hole. The 1500 litre shallow dig tank has even been known on several occasions to be located in the hole by two people with no lifting equipment.
If you have also included the factory fitted filter, calmed inlet and overflow siphon you simply have to connect your inbound and outbound pipes to the 4″ locator pipes protruding from the tank and away you go!
Tank Dimensions - Rain Activ
*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.
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 underground tank where 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.
External HDPE Rainwater Pipe included. It is important to identify a source of a water supply. Untreated rainwater is not for human consumption and so water companies are recommending (and in some cases requiring) that Black and Green HDPE pipe is used for piping rainwater from the tank to the point of use – eg. garden tap.
The point of use should be clearly labelled to show that rain water is the source. We include 25mm black and green hdpe pipe and labels with this kit with the option to buy further rolls of pipe.
