First flush devices, rain heads and filters: Check and clean and repair or replace if required. First flush devices need to be cleaned regularly to function well.Royal Bulls Head Inn
Pump and pressure unit: Keep pumps clean and ventilated. Protect from weather and corrosion. A good quality pump should give many years of trouble free service. Insist on a quality pump unit and pressure unit. Cheap units will be costly and disappointing in the long term. To minimise noise ensure the pump is designed with a minimum sound power rating and is housed and sited to minimise environmental noise impact.
Submersible bore pump pressure systems are very quiet and can be used for tanks. This may eliminate the need for pump housing. Tank overflow pipes should be vermin proof and discharge in accordance with Council requirements.
The extraction point should be above the tank floor to ensure that water is of good quality. The bottom water zone is where particles settle and is anaerobic and often contains more micro-organisms.
Most modern roofing materials are safe for rainwater collection but check on your roofing finish and flashings. Lead flashings must not be used where rainwater collection is proposed.
