Factors to consider when looking for a rainwater tank pump
Before you start your journey in searching for the perfect rainwater pump you should determine what the pump will be used for, whether it's domestic residential use or commercial use, or farming and irrigation. This will determine what the water output will be and how powerful the pump needs to be, and maybe the features the pump will require.
To help figure out what type of pump you need first you need to have the answers to a couple of questions ready, such as:
how many stories is the house?
this will determine whether you need a single story pump or a double story pump
how many bathrooms and kitchens are in the house?
This is to ensure that the pump has enough power to supply your house because you might have multiple toilet flushing and people showering the last thing you want is your pump not being able to support that.
Whether you're solely on rainwater supply or mains water supply?
Some pumps are very advanced and come with features that allow the pump to switch from tank water supply to mains water supply.
Types of pumps
You'll also need to decide whether you want to be able to see the pump or not, because there are
these sit inside the rainwater harvesting tanks so that they're out of view, but just remember if there are any issues that come up it's a bit harder to access.
These sit outside next to your house and water tank, they're easier to access but they are exposed to nature so make sure you consider getting a pump cover.
make sure you get a professional plumber to help you install your pump because if you try to do a DIY job without knowing what you're doing you could possibly damage your pump and these types of damages wouldn't be covered under warranty by most suppliers.
