Rainwater Tanks Direct offers a large range of pumps suitable for use with rainwater tanks. We can give you the right advice on which pump will best suit your needs and situation and supply you with related accessories to make connecting your new pump simple for you and your plumber. Our most popular pump brands are Davey and Bianco, but we also supply Grundfos, Dab and Ramdex/Reefe pumps among others.

When choosing a pump, a few things need to be considered: how many taps will connect to the pump; whether your house is single or double storey; how much you want to spend and the head height or pressure required. Don’t make the mistake of choosing the cheapest pump because these may only be able to be replaced in a short time, not repaired. A good quality pump from a reputable manufacturer which is able to be repaired if anything goes wrong, is often a cheaper option than replacing cheap pumps one after the other. As with all things, you get what you pay for, so buy the best pump you can afford and you should get good service from it. However, don’t make the mistake of buying the biggest pump you can because it may be too powerful for your needs, and also a waste of money  because you have paid for more power than you require. Talk to Rainwater Tanks Direct and get the best advice on buying a pump that suits both your budget and pump requirements.

When choosing your new pump it is a wise idea to factor in a poly or steel pump cover as well, as these will protect your pump from the weather, if it is located outside, and will offer some noise reduction. We don’t want to upset the neighbours! Apart from that, a colour coordinated pump cover to match your rainwater tank will give your rainwater harvesting system a stylish appearance. Another option to reduce noise and save space is to use a submersible pump which is usually the same price as an external pump, but allows you to save on the pump cover. If you are simply connecting your pump to a hose, and you are quite handy, you may be able to install the pump yourself. However, if you are using the tank water to connect to toilets and washing machines, or you want to be eligible for a local government, state or federal government rebate, depending on your location, you will need  a licenced plumber to install your pump. You may also need an electrician to install a power point for the pump if there is not a convenient one located nearby.
