RainBank by Davey
Water supply is one of the most talked about topics across the nation. We can no longer afford to waste a single drop of water. Davey, a leading manufacturer of pumps and pressure systems, has identified this problem and developed RainBank® – an automatic controller for rainwater harvesting.
RainBank offers the flexibility of being incorporated into new homes or retrofitted into existing properties.
What does it do?
RainBank controls the water supply for toilet or laundry applications by automatically switching the water source from the domestic mains to rainwater when a demand is sensed and rainwater is available in the storage tank.
RainBank is the first product to use rainwater as the water supply for toilet and laundry applications in the metropolitan area and control it automatically. It can save up to 40% of a household’s drinking water supply which is normally used in these applications, thereby helping conserve Australia’s precious water resources.
RainBank – an automatic controller for rainwater harvesting
1. When a toilet is flushed or a washing-machine begins to fill the RainBank system detects this demand and automatically checks to see if there is sufficient water in the rainwater storage tank.
2. If there is sufficient rainwater then RainBank switches the supply to this source and completes the demand cycle. Once the demand cycle is complete RainBank automatically switches off.
3. If the rainwater supply is depleted at any time during a demand cycle or prior to a demand cycle, RainBank provides mains water to fulfil the demand. In the case of a power failure, RainBank automatically supplies mains water as the backup.

Waste water can be diverted from the laundry basin bath orshower onto a garden this waste water can only be stored for a maximin or 24 hours prior to disposal. It must be pumped into the sewer or disposed off at least 150 mm below ground level. Water from toilets must not be used for this process Toilet water can be used only after a high degree of process such as a septic tank envirocycle usually on acres and only with local government apporoval. Kitchen sink waste water is generally suitable for grey water recycling into gardens.
Grey water saver
The patented invention titled Greywater Diverter Vessel Assembly provides a simple, reliable, acceptable and cost effective long-term means of recycling greywater for garden irrigation. Theinvention originally developed and hand fabricated as the Greywater Saver, has since (under an exclusive Au/NZ IP licence granted to Nylex Corp.) been redesigned for mass-production and sold under the product name “Nylex Greywater DivertaTM “. for more information on this product go to greywater please click link nylex greywater saver please click greywatersaver
GREY TO GREEN IRRIGATION SYSTEM
A diversion plumbing system isinstalled in the laundy to send grey water to the garden from the washing machine.
A surge tank is used as a buffer beween the washing machine and the garden, as the average wachine machine pumpcan emit water faster than drippers can handle it.
The grey water travels from the surge tank to the garden via above-surface low density poly pipe andsubsequently directed to sub-surface drippers.

Sub-surface irrigation is extremely effective as it directs water to the plant root zone. As the water is emitted below the soil surface, run off and evaporation are avoided. Sub-surface irrigation uses about 15% of the water volume used with surface watering and achieves far superior results as the sub-surface remains permanently moist.
