How the rainwater tank filters work
Our DIY rainwater tank filter system is made up of two types of filters and cleans the water in two stages.
Pleated sediment filter
The first stage in filtering rainwater uses the pleated sediment filter. This removes all solid particles of one micron in size or greater. It keeps your water free of debris by removing particles such as:
The pleated filter has a huge surface area, which provides high capacity. It is cleanable, so you can maximise its lifespan.
Silver carbon filter
The second stage uses the silver carbon filter, which removes microorganisms, organic material and chemicals. It also prevents bacterial growth.
The carbon is of the highest quality, ensuring top absorption performance while providing high flow rates.
Long lasting & fully disposable
The cartridges used in the filters are easy to replace and only require changing once every 6 to 12 months, depending on your water quality and usage. They are fully disposable – just wrap the expended cartridges and put them in your rubbish bin.

Do-it -yourself installation of the rainwater tank filter system
When installing the system or replacing cartridges, ensure the water supply is turned off. If you are not confident on how to proceed, get a qualified plumber to assist.
When you unpack the rainwater filter system, check that it is in good condition. If the system has been damaged, do not install it. Let us know of the damage as soon as possible and we will immediately organise a replacement.
Work out the best position to securely install the filter. Clear the area, making sure there are no trip hazards and that the workplace is safe.
What tools and parts do you need?
You will need the following set of tools and parts:
- Water pipe and elbows to connect system
- Thread tape to seal pipes and connections
- Electric drill for support bracket screw holes
- Screws or mounts for support bracket
- Spanner for filter housing (included)
- Ball valves for a bypass or gauge (optional)
Fixing the housing
The support bracket has two holes to attach it onto the wall. Use strong screws or bolts to fix the water filter onto the wall.
We recommend mounting the support bracket to the house wall. You need to ensure the housing is fixed strongly. It will become heavy when it fills with water, so the connection has to be strong enough to handle severe thunderstorms.
Water flow direction
Set the housing to match the flow direction. The caps are marked “in” and “out” on the top of the housing or from left to right. If your flow direction is right to left, remove the bracket from the system, flip it and reassemble.
The inlet is to be attached to the “in” port on the system and the outlet plumbing is to be attached to the “out” port. At this time you should install extra items such as:
- Bypass pipe and shutoff valve
- Inlet and outlet shutoff valves
- Gauge to monitor rainwater supply
Priming the system
When the installation is complete do not open the valve on the water connection yet. First fully open the outside tap nearest to the rainwater tank filter system, then slowly open the valve to the water connection and allow the system to fill with water.
When the system is full water should flow out of the opened tap nearest the rainwater tank filter system. Let the water flow for at least 10 minutes before using. This will allow the black water from the excess carbon in the silver carbon filter to be flushed out.
As the system fills use the air bleeder valves to release any air trapped inside the filter housing. Then check the pipe connections and housing for any leaks and repair as required.

Important notes for the rainwater tank filter system
Maximum water pressure for the rainwater tank filter system
The maximum water pressure for the system is approximately 80 psi. If there is more pressure than that, you should install a pressure limiting valve before the water system.
Do not use any sealants in the rainwater tank filter system
Do not use any form of sealant on the pipe connection threads. Use only thread tape. Sealants will expand and crack connections to cause leaks.
