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.
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.
