Readily available, cost effective and easy to catch and store, rainwater provides water for many uses around the home. 

What do you need to know?

Rainwater is widely used in Australia for use around the home from simply watering the garden or flushing the toilet, right through to the entire households needs. Find out what is required to treat rainwater for your household needs here.

Water Testing & Why?

Water testing helps determine initial treatment requirements and can also confirm your current treatment solution is working. Water should be tested annually. Simple test kits are available from your local FILTEC partner.

Water Catchment Design

A few simple things should be considered to ensure the rainwater arriving in you tank is as clean as possible, as this improves overall water quality as well as reducing ongoing maintenance and associated costs.

Rainwater Treatment

Most rainwater can be treated in the following way:

Step 1: Filtration to remove sediment.

Step 2: Disinfection to ensure illness causing pathogens (viruses, bacteria & protozoa) are treated.

Advanced Rainwater Treatment

Optional advanced water treatment solutions can address taste and odour problems and also neutralise water to stop corrosion in plumbing and tapware.

Service & Maintenance

Regular service and occasional maintenance is required to ensure your system is operating to protect you. Let a FILTEC partner schedule regular service and maintenance or purchase consumables and spares for a DIY option.
