The ecogator® Rainwater Sump will collect, filter and pump (pump not included) the rain water to your central water storage tanks (wherever they are positioned in your garden).
Gravity feed your rainwater downpipes to one central underground point – the ecogator® Rainwater Sump System (120 Liters). The sump will collect, filter and pump (pump not included) the rain water to your central water storage tanks (wherever they are positioned in your garden).
There is no need to place your tanks underneath your rainwater downpipes or next to your house (for space and aesthetic reasons). Your tanks could be installed at a convenient place, anywhere in your garden – the ecogator® Rainwater Sump will feed the rainwater to the tanks. It is designed for easy installation to accommodate a submersible or an external pump (pump not included). The pump will automatically feed the rainwater to the water tanks, as the sump fills up.
The system includes a 110 mm inlet connection and a 32 mm outlet connection. It easily fits an internal or external pump . It also includes a flexible yellow pipe to connect to your pump as well as a filter system. The ecogator® system filters the leaves, dirt particles and dust before it reaches the sump.
The filter system consists of: (1) an inner canister with a bottle brush to filter all leaves and debris before the water enters the (2) outer canister or calmed inlet. The calmed inlet collects the fine dust particles which passes through the filter and prevents the swirling of the water and oxygenates it at the bottom of the sump. Just remove the 50 mm union pipe connector by unscrewing the union to remove your whole filter system when cleaning it of leaves, debris and dust.
There is an emergency overflow (to be connected to your storm water pipes) which also act as a siphon. The siphon simply flushes the floating light, fine materials (e.g. flower pollen) out via the 50 mm overflow pipe.
