Why maintain your rainwater harvesting system?
Dirty discoloured water, odour, sediment in the system, bacteria such as legionella, inefficient or damaged pumps, damaged filters and inaccurate gauge reading are all some of the things that can affect your rainwater harvesting system if it hasn’t been regularly maintained.

Non Return valve compliant to BS EN 16941-1:2018 to prevent contamination to the rainwater tank. Without it, dirty or even foul water could flow back into the water storage system.
It is important that pipework is in good working order and meets the requirements set out in the WRAS rainwater guidance notes. Even a small leak can waste water and energy!
Cleaning the backwashing filters maintains rainwater quality. Some systems have other mesh filters which are important to maintain.
Important checks and calibration of rainwater level sensors make sure that the system makes the most from your rainwater savings.
Calibrating the water level indicator so you can see how much water is in the rainwater storage tank.
The floating suction filter after cleaning ensures that clean rainwater is pumped to the tanks direct points of use.
Checking a pre-tank filter for debris and blockages. Once the mesh becomes blinded the rainwater system starts to lose efficiency and will use mainswater to supplement your supply!
Maintaining the rainwater system is an important part of ensuring water quality
It is important to maintain the rainwater UV disinfection unit to achieve optimum sterilisation of the rainwater and maintain levels of water quality and prevent bacterial growth.
The rainwater header tank incorporates the category 5 mainswater top-up. It is vital to maintain the mainswater solenoid valve or you risk running out of the water!
