Rainwater pump

Rainwater pumps are used to recycle rainwater in and around the house, and it is collected in an underground tank/reservoir or well, which the rainwater pump uses to recycle the water. Rainwater pumps are available in a variety of models that are suitable for setups both in and outside the water.

Installing a rainwater pump

Rainwater pumps can be installed in the water (wet setup) and outside the water (dry setup). Both options have advantages and advantages. The wet setup, placing the pump in a water source, is most commonly used. Both setups are compared below.

Dry setup

A dry setup means that the rainwater pump is installed outside the source, from which it pumps water through a suction hose in order to transport the water under pressure further into the house. The advantage of a dry setup is that this is the most economical solution, and the pump will be easy to service. Moreover, some of the pumps we supply (DAB Active Switch and DAB Aquaprof) have the option of switching automatically to the regular water supply system if the water level in the well is too low. The pump will switch back to pumping from the well as soon as it contains sufficient water again. This ensures a constant supply of water, even if the rainwater reservoir has run dry.

Wet setup

Unlike the dry setup, in a wet setup the pump is placed in the rainwater reservoir, from which it draws in water via the suction grid or the connected suction kit, and then pumps the water through the pipes. The major difference between both setups is the noise level and the space they occupy. In a wet setup there is no noise whatsoever. The pump operates very quietly because it is immersed in water, which absorbs every sound. Furthermore, a wet setup is also practically invisible, and the connected pipe and the pump control system (if fitted) are the only things that can be seen on the outside of the rainwater reservoir.
