What is a Mains Water Switching Device ?

&

What is it used for ?

This is the short version – for more FACTS and a longer exposé of Mains Water Switches, please click here.

These devices, which allow household water feeds to switch from Mains to Tank Water, and back again, are also known as “Water Source Diversion Valves”.

When your Harvested Tank Water is connected to internal plumbed devices and appliances ( such as toilets, washing machines etc ). Allowance must be made for switching
or diversion back over to Mains Water Feed. This may be in the cases of limited water within, or empty rainwater tank water supply or the failure of the Pump or electrical blackout etc.

Mains Water Switches may be electronic or hydraulic operation.  An electronic operation is problematic during black-outs etc – so a Hydraulically Driven Valve is by far the best to use.

This Transfer between Tank Water to Mains Water feed ( and back ) is usually achieved by:
  1. A simple mains water top-up to ensure the tank is never empty – BUT please note this simple top up alone will not operate with pump failure or electrical blackout;
  2. A valve body in line so you can manually switch between tank water and mains water supply; and…
  3. By far most popular is to install an Automatic water switching device driven either hydraulically or electrically in conjunction with an electronic controlled pressure pump.

Automatic Mains Water Switches will swap the water supply to mains water when the tank water supply is insufficient/empty or in the case of pump failure either due to power outage or pump malfunction etc.

We have tried them all. In Our Honest Opinion ( I.O.H.O ), some are complete rubbish and a gross waste of money and full of warranty dramas. Others are just way overpriced and dare we say a RIP-OFF due to you and / or your client just buying “ a Brand “… you get no more for your money.

Frankly, just like the BIANCO RainSaver – the DAVEY Rainbank unit by Davey has also had its own very large share of complaints and warranty claims.

Sadly, even the BIANCO RainSaver Units have been known for complaints and warranty claims AGAIN against the REPLACED UNITS that White International & their BIANCO Pumps will not honour as the original unit sale date strikes the start of the 2 Year Warranty period.

It’s really very simple, DO NOT purchase or offer to SELL any of the garbage that does not meet the Minimum Australian Standards and cannot show PROOF via a WATERMARK APPROVAL License and License Number of this compliance – only then you will have and be offering for sale a QUALITY Fit-for Purpose Product.

I.O.H.O – It’s the only way to go. Be sure, don’t waste your money, cause headaches, heartaches and drama – keep it very tidy & simple & stick with the AcquaSaver® Valve, ( also known as the misspelt Aquasaver ) the WILO Water Widget™ or the MaxiSAVE™ Valve – the latter two products are the same unit as purchased by & rebadged by WILO & Maxijet.

Should you professionally care to swap suppliers and begin to purchase our AQUATICA Water Pumps, we can gratefully offer DISCOUNTED Package Deals with the ACQUASAVER Mains Water Switching Valve and our Jet-Venturi Intelligent Water Pump.

The ACQUASAVER is made of solid brass, has less moving parts, no wire screens to block, is HYDRAULICALLY driven thus NO POWER is needed. Float-Less operation in-tank & comes with a Life Time Warranty on the Main Valve Brass body. Hence, your money is best spent on the best product in the market – that’s in Mark’s honest opinion after selling over 500 Units without a single complaint nor warranty issue !

When a Picture is worth 1,000 Words !
