Underground Plastic Cisterns
The strength and versatility of Infiltrator Tanks enable a wide range of installation possibilities, including shallow installations and multiple and serial tank configurations. Both the standard and potable IM Series offer the quickest installations in the rainwater industry. Georgia Water Tanks stocks both the potable and nonpotable versions of the 1500 gallon tank.
Other benefits include:
These tanks work especially well with the 4" Intewa Purain prefilters. The low invert of the Purain allows in-tank installation and maximum utilization. The Purain has a built-in skimming overflow, so a second outlet connection is not required. And the Purain screen will be below the water level when the tank is full, which provides additional cleaning. Finally, the 4" Purain is sized for a 1500 s.f. roof, which is a also a good size for the 1787 gallon tank, using the 1:1:1 ratio.
One of the few challenges of these tanks is that it is shallower than some other cisterns. Although that makes it easier to install, and doesn't require as large an excavator, it might mean lower tank utilization. You generally want a deep sump, to provide the 12 – 24" submergence that most pumps require.
When we found the Pedrollo UP pump, we knew we had a perfect match. The Pedrollo can be installed horizontally, not in some janky plastic sleeve that we concocted, but in a bracket made by the factory. With the bracket, we now need on 3" of submergence when pumping. Best in the industry!
The Infiltrator IM Series is available in 1787, 1280, and 550 gallon sizes.
