The retention tank receives water from roof downpipe and stores it for use in toilet flushing, washing machines and/or outside taps. Excess water flows out a 100mm overflow to stormwater disposal. These tanks often have automatic top up from council supply to prevent them running out of water. These tanks may be above ground or buried.
A pressure controlled pump is required to supply the water. The pump may be surface mounted with a cover and suitable run-dry protection, or a submersible pressure pump may be installed in the tank, eliminating the need for a pump cover and external controls. We can size and supply a suitable pump to meet use requirements.
FTM can supply above ground tanks from 450 to 22,300 Litres.
We can supply buried tanks from 1000 to 9000 Litres.
