How Rainwater Tank Filters work
Rainwater tank water filter systems are fitted after the rainwater tank and provide filtered water throughout the property. The water will be filtered from contaminants such as sediments and bacteria. The systems are designed to be efficient by not reducing water flow pressure and effective in removing contaminants.
The filtration process of the units initiates as the untreated water flows through the first stage of the rainwater tank filter screening and eliminating any sediment before further flowing to the second stage.
The second stage filter is where the high volume activated carbon block cartridge efficiently removes any potential organic chemicals, herbicides, pesticides, bad taste and odours. A third stage of filtration can also be found in our systems which consists of another carbon block filter further filtering and removing contaminants which could have possibly passed the second stage.
The final stage and most important stage for untreated water is the disinfection stage, this takes place as clean filtered water flows through the chamber of the UV lamp, sterilizing and disinfecting the water.
