The Floating Outtake improves the quality of water going to the house, building or trough by ensuring the best water is taken from the top of the tank.
The bottom of the Floating Outtake hose is connected tot he tank’s outlet by a fitting.
This outlet may be on the lower side or very bottom of the tank. The ball float suspends the stainless-steel filter at the top of the hose just below the water surface where the cleanest water lies.
When the water level is very low and the hose lies on it’s side, the collar helps to keep the filter above any sediment layer. Taking only clean water from the tank can also reduce pump system problems and maintenance costs.
- Install in new tank, or empty existing tank prior to fitting (Remove any remaining sediment).
- Check tank outlet fitting size. If not 32mm or 25mm as provided, purchase required adaptor fittings. Note: Marley recommends the use of Teflon tape on all fitting threads.
- If at full extension the tank hose will be higher than the highest water level, remove the bottom outtake fitting, cut hose to height and replace the fitting.
- Screw on fitting, fill tank, and enjoy better quality water.
A calmed inlet is a special footed u-bend that sits at the bottom of the tank inlet pipe on the floor of the tank. The calmed inlet directs incoming flow up and away from any sediment that has settled at the bottom of the tank. In this way incoming water does not disturb the sediment and contaminate the rest of the tank water.
The Marley calmed inlet is designed to slide onto the bottom of Marley 100mm pipe. Smaller diameter pipe should be positioned so that the pipe is centred as far as possible down into the calmed inlet.
