Rain Water Collection Filtration System? Answered
We are in the middle of designing a rain water collection system for a commercial building that includes:
1. a 2500 gallon in ground tank
2. 1/2 hp submersable well pump
3.simple float valve to maintain minimum water level during drought
What we are trying to figure out is to exclude purchasing a complicated expensive store bought filtration system we were trying as we always do to keep things simple. we have to provide sometype of secondary filtration system to aereate the water as well as clean it in order to run to our toilets.
Whatwould be wrong with using a small pool filter set in a 1 hour a day cycle that would provide oxygen to the water ? Also we were looking at using one of the floating chlorine tablet holders like a pool would use to maybe kill any pathegons that would be in it.
We realize this is too simple to not have some down side so all opinions and help would be greatly appreciatted.
