Using simple proven technology, these systems collect rainwater directly from the downpipe via a highly efficient filter-collector. All but the finest particles are excluded making the water ideal for blockage-free drip feeding in irrigation systems. Filtering also avoids stagnating water making it fit for vehicle and other washing purposes, livestock drinking supplies, etc.
Systems are available for both domestic garden use and for larger commercial irrigation purposes. A basic system can consist of just a filter, tank and pump; dry run protection and/or automatic mains top-up can be added.
