Installation and Operating Instructions for ACQUASAVER WATER SWITCH DEVICE – AQUATICA WATER PUMPS – BAS25

Introduction

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

Operation

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.

Features

  • Easy to install
  • Patent design
  • Solid Brass mounting bracket (optional)
  • Watermark approved to ATS/NZS 477
  • Does not require regular maintenance
  • No electrical consumption – No electronic components
  • Solid brass construction – Fully weatherproof – Built to last
  • Suitable for any pressure pump with sufficient head pressure
  • Can be mounted in any position
  • Built-in dual check valve for backflow prevention
  • 2 Year warranty

Connection

All plumbing connections should be carried out by a licensed plumber.

Step 1

The AcquaSaver™ Valve is fitted onto the pump controller as shown in Fig 1. lock up the 1” BSP F loose nut with the rubber washer supplied.

Step 2

Step 3

Connect outlet to the household Fig 2. using the 1” BSP F connection. Fig. 4 shows a typical installation for a submersible pump.

NOTE: When using a pump with an automatic restart controller, allow for the outlet on the tank to be higher than the pump inlet to allow air to
escape when the tank is refilling shown in Fig 3. The AcquaSaver™ Valve can be installed any distance from the pump or controller e.g. attached to a wall.

The connection of the pump should be carried out to manufacturers instructions.
