Installation and Operating Instructions for ACQUASAVER WATER SWITCH DEVICE – AQUATICA WATER PUMPS – BAS20
The AcquaSaver® Valve is a fully automatic mechanical rainwater/mains water changeover device designed for pressure pump supply systems
for harvesting rainwater for the toilet, laundry and household applications with automatic mains backup.
It is suitable for up to 2 toilets and washing machine and an extra tap outlet
The AcquaSaver® Valve will always prioritize the use of rainwater over mains water when rainwater is available and will automatically
switch over to mains water in the event of the rainwater tank running low or electrical failure.
When rainwater has been replenished or power has been restored to the pump, the AcquaSaver valve will automatically prioritize back to rainwater.
The pump is only active when rainwater is being drawn from the water tank, it does not operate when the AcquaSaver Valve has switched to mains position.
The pump controller starts and stops the pump when it detects a demand – for example flushing a toilet or using a washing machine.
The operating mechanism of the AcquaSaver Valve is a unique patent design, it works by hydraulic water pressure created by the pump to close one inlet fully
before opening the other inlet. This ensures an extremely reliable mechanism using few moving parts and no electronic components and no energy consumption.
