Full Description

This GRAF Rainwater Harvesting Tank provides an excellent solution to harvesting rainwater by directly pumping rainwater to indoor appliances and to an external tap. It is expected that the UK will have water shortages in the next 2 decades, which makes rainwater harvesting even more crucial now than ever before.

This tank is quick and simple to assemble, as it comes in two parts which are easy to secure together. The Carat XL Direct range provides a cost-effective solution, and has an extra large storage capacity. Rainwater is pumped directly to WCs, the washing machine and to the outdoor tap, and a mains water back up is used in case of insufficient rainwater supply. The tank prioritises rainwater, meaning you'll make the most out of your rainwater supply all year round, but a mains backup supply will mean you'll always have a consistent supply of water.

- Sprinkler systems
- WCs
- Washing laundry

In terms of quality of water, rainwater is the superior choice for washing clothes, as it is soft as opposed to hard mains supply water. Soft rainwater will be beneficial as it will not cause as much of a limescale build up in the washing machine, which is better for your clothes and extends the lifespan of your appliance.

The Carat XL Direct tank is available to purchase with a pedestrian loading lid which is suitable for installation in the garden, or vehicle loading which is suitable for a driveway or areas with vehicle use. This means you can install your tank where it is convenient for you.

What are the benefits of harvesting rainwater?
1. Harvesting rainwater conserves water which helps to lower the demand for water from the mains network. It also means you'll have a supply of water if mains water becomes scarce.

2. Collecting and using rainwater can be a practical and affordable alternative to mains water supply. It will lower your water bill, as rainwater is a free natural resource.

3. Rainwater harvesting is a better practice for the environment as it helps to reduce water pollution, soil erosion, and flooding. It also helps to promote sustainable agriculture through its use towards irrigation, and mitigates the dependency on fossil fuels for water pumping and distribution.

4. Harvested rainwater with a Direct tank can be used for a wide range of indoor and outdoor purposes, making it exceptional value for money.

5. Harvesting rainwater can help communities to become more resilient in the face of climate change, droughts, and water scarcity.
