Rainceptor Below Ground Pre-Tank Filtration System https://www.aksindustries.com.au/product/rainceptor-below-ground-filtration-system/ Mon, 20 Sep 2021 14:36:10 +0000 https://aks.macrolinktech.com/?post_type=product&p=6990 PROTECT YOUR PUMPS & TANK Rainceptor is a unique high-performance inline rainwater filtration device designed to filter rainwater/stormwater runoff from roof areas up to 6600m² with a single unit. Rainwater collected off the roof passes into the Rainceptor which pre-filters larger dirt particles and leaves, which are then washed directly into the sewer. Pre-filtered water then passes through a secondary filter, screening the water down to 600microns and clean water flows to your storage tank. This removes high-levels of sediment and reduces the development of E-coli bacteria caused by decomposing leaves and debris building up in your tank.
THE SMARTER harvesting systems
AKS also offers complete rainwater harvesting systems where the Rainceptor is teamed up with our renowned Torpedo or Enforcer storage tanks, and a Pure-Rain rainwater reuse filtration pumpset, providing a highly efficient and cost-effective package.
