Greetings Knowledgeable ATS Members,
The greening of my house roadshow continues. I've been looking at rainwater harvesting for use in my two cisterns, washing machine and garden. Which filtering system, or combination thereof, is best to keep nasty stuff out of the rainwater tank that may stain clothes and toilet bowls?
I've been recommended the Frogmouth and Lazy Lizard filters from WaterCare: http://www.water-care.com.au/water-tank-accessories whereas another plumber recommended a leaf guard combined with an open style of leaf diverter on the downpipe and a 100 micron filter on the outlet of the tank
Another interesting gadget is the Superhead: http://www.superwall.com.au/superhead/index.html which looks like an all in one solution.
We have a large she-oak which drops it's needles on the collecting roof as well as some possums that frequent it at night.
