Rainwater Harvesting System for primary school
The Westborough Primary School, near Southend-on-Sea, has ordered a complete rainwater harvesting system from market leader Aquaco.
The system comprises of a 10,000 litre single piece underground rainwater collection tank and the Aquaco inline wire mesh leaf filter.
A dual submersible pump set provides 100% standby capability.
The system also incorporates a 50 litre vertical membrane expansion tank, filter housing and a UV disinfection unit.
In the event of low rainfall, a mains water top-up system feeds the underground tank via a tundish which gives the necessary type AA air gap required by water regulations. The mains water top-up ensures the system will stay operational during times of drought.
