This 1600L 3P Technik Rain Tank System - Green is much more than just a typical water butt. It is in fact an excellent rainwater harvesting system which includes a steel pump which is both waterproof and submersible.
The tanks are simple to install and include a 3P Technik quality Filter Collector, ensuring maximum diversion of rainwater from your downpipes into your tank(s). The Filter Collector also filters the rainwater ensuring leaves and other debris cannot enter the tanks.
The Garden Steel pump hooks up to the brass connectors at the base of the first tank giving you the full benefit of all the combined capacity.
The garden steel pump has a 600W power rating, generating a flow of up to 3,000 litres per hour. It comes with a generous 10 litre mains power cable and is light enough to carry comfortably for putting away. A hosetail connector is supplied for connection to your standard hosepipe or watering accessories.
The tanks also feature taps for use with a watering can if desired. The tap is approximately 30cm from the base, enough to get a standard watering can underneath. Each tank interconnects using high quality connection sets with metal threads to combine the capacity.
A Wall Tank Kit, which includes a wall fixing bracket, plastic high flow 3/4" BSP tap and holesaw set with rubber grommets also comes with the tank.
