Variable Speed Pressure System

Living on a sloped block and in an area with frequent power outages, a system was needed that enables gravity fed water to the home a for basic use, which also makes an aesthetically pleasing solution as the tanks are situated well away from the home dwelling.

In this instance Rural Irrigation Supplies intalled a 5,000 litre catchment tank located at the home with a Grundfos KP 250 Sump Pump to automatically transfer rainwater to the higher storage tank – now, power or no power, the home has sufficient flow for the toilets and sinks.

The Chidlows have installed an Onga SMH550 pump unit and retro fitted a Variable Speed Drive to it as a trial, they have installed 7 Duraplas Water tanks to a total of 140,000 litres, they have installed an automatic irrigation system controlled by a Hunter 4 Station Irrigation Controller and 25mm solenoid valves. The vegetable garden is irrigated with Philmac 180 degree micro sprays, the rose garden is irrigated by Toro 4 Litre per hour Drippers on stakes and the shade house using Philmac 360 degree micro sprays, the front and rear house gardens are irrigated by a combination of Toro 35 litre per hour Waterbird Sprinklers and Toro 8 Litre per hour Drippers
