The ClayTec C Series are compact, composite booster pumps ideal for garden use and small house applications. The C Series are single-stage jet pumps controlled by the PM1 pressure manager. The pressure manager allows the pump to start and stop automatically according to demand and protects the pump from dry running. The Rainwater Tank Pumps are also self-priming making them ideal for above and below ground water sources.
Multi Stage Pumps
The Grundfos CM Booster and ClayTec M Series Rainwater tank pumps are designed for domestic and light industrial use. The booster unit within each consists of a robust multistage centrifugal pump and a generator friendly auto on/off Pressure Manager. The Pressure Manager allows each pump to start and stop automatically according to demand and protects the pump from dry running. Ideal for whole-of-house rainwater harvesting solutions.
Variable Speed Pumps
The Grundfos Scala2 and ClayTece Pump have been developed for the quality Australian home. Fitted with a variable speed motor that adjusts performance according to water demand, saving electricity while giving constant pressure and flow. With a fully integrated electric controller, swivel connections, self-priming and a non-return valve all in one compact unit that is quick and easy to install and with a water-cooled motor to ensure quiet operation.
The Claytec DiverTron C Series pump is a fully automatic submersible rainwater pump for use in above and below ground rainwater tanks. The electronic controller is built into the pump allowing it to start when you open the household tap and stop when you close the tap. With the electronic controller inside the pump it makes its installation simple. Just lower it inside the tank. It has dry-run protection so will stop when the rainwater tank is empty and will test from rain water every 24 hours and automatically re-start.
Rainwater Tank Pumps FAQs
Do rainwater tanks need a pump?
No not all rainwater tanks need a pump. One way to get water from the tank is by relying on gravity.
The tank can be placed on a stand or on high ground and gravity will force the water down to where you want it. If you need the water to travel up hill from the tank or you need the water to be at a certain pressure when coming from the tank, then you will need a pump.
How do water tanks pumps work?
Electric water pumps usually have small DC motors. This motor is contained in a sealed case attached to an impeller and it powers the impeller via a simple gear drive.
Through a series of pushes, the rotor continues to spin, driving the impeller and powering the pump so that the water is forced through to the outlet tap or system with good pressure.
