1,000L Rainwater Harvesting System in for Small (50 m2) to Medium (150 m2) Gardens.

“The tanks are suitable for many other liquids and applications. Please contact us if you have another use other than water.”

This 1,000 Litre Slim Rainwater Harvesting System has a small footprint allowing you to utilise those small, out of the way spaces which allows you to harvest a substantial amount of rainwater.

This package includes a Submersible Pump as well as a Gutter Mate Filter Diverter which is vital to use with a tank this size. The Gutter Mate is fitted to the downpipe and filters the rainwater before it goes into the tank with the included Fine Mesh Insert.

This 1,000 Litre Rainwater Harvesting System includes all the components required for collection, storage and distribution of rainwater around the garden (Garden Hose not included).

This 1,000 Litre Rectangular Slimline Tank is ideal for collecting rainwater. These black tanks are constructed from polyethylene for above ground locations.

These tanks are ideal for:

  • Static rainwater storage
  • Water storage for gardens and irrigation systems

Static Water Tank Dimensions:

  • Capacity: 1,000 Litres (264 gallons)
  • Length: 1350 mm
  • Width: 760 mm
  • Height: 1300 mm
  • Lid: 455 mm
  • Weight: 40kgs
  • Outlet: 1.5" BSP Male (other sizes and configurations available upon request)

*Please check images for side view and top view of product*

Leave a gap of about 50mm all around the tank to allow for the natural expansion of the tank when full of water. The rainwater filter diverter can be installed in 2 ways, either using the diverter outlet which is the smaller of the 2 outlets on the bottom of the GMFD, if you use the diverter outlet you can use the automatic cut off feature of the Gutter Mate filter Diverter when the tank is full.  If you want to collect all the rainwater coming down the downpipe you should use the main outlet on the bottom of the GMFD. If you use the main outlet you will need to provide a separate overflow out of the tank when the tank is full.  You should always allow a small air space in the top of the tank when full to allow for expansion of the water in summer of around 50mm.

Just follow the instructions which come with the Diverter.
