Rain Water Harvesting

Postby Skids » Thu Jan 22, 2009 7:35 pm

Hi all,

Rain water harvesting

Anyone know a good pump that will not cost the earth to pump water from a ground level tank/water butt up 5m to the loft tank

Also need a relay that will control the pump on/off, to work from 3 float switches:

1, in the top of the roof tank to say ‘full stop pumping’
2, in the bottom of the roof tank to say ‘empty start pumping’ &
3, in the bottom of the ground tank to say ‘empty don’t start pumping’
