The Direct-supply system is designed to support WCs, washing machines, irrigation and outside cleaning purposes. Rainwater is collected from the roof of the property and is fed into the underground tank via the downpipes. On entry to the tank, the water passes through a filter, to prevent any debris from going into the tank. With this system, there is a mains water top-up unit located within the property. This unit supplies mains water to the underground tank when the rainwater level is low. The operation of this unit is controlled via a float switch. There is a pressure-sensitive pump located in the underground tank. When a valve or tap is opened, water will be pumped under pressure until the valve is closed, allowing for the system to repressurise turning the power off to the pump.  PLATIN telescopic dome shaft Mini green, with PE-lid, for pedestrian loading, an option with cast iron lid for vehicle loading.
