CISTERN PUMPS WE LIKE FOR RAINWATER HARVESTING
Georgia Water Tanks now stocks the Tigerflow Ocelot VFD pump system. We loved the Grundfos MQ pump, but it was discontinued some time ago, and reviews of its replacement have been poor. So we are glad to introduce the Ocelot!
It is a pre-assembled and pre-wired unit made up of a pump, variable speed drive, expansion tank, fittings, and a pressure transducer. The Ocelot pump is a horizontal multi-stage pump for pumping clean water only. Designed for 10 gpm @ 40 psi, this pump is started and stopped by the VFD, which adjusts the motor speed according to demand. The VFD maintains a constant pressure according to the selected set point. As the water demand decreases, the device reduces the pump speed until it stops. The expansion tank minimizes the pump start-up and shutdown cycles.
NOTE: The pump is designed for use with clear water. Application Limits Temperature of pumped liquid: from +33°F To +104°F in compatibility with the pump materials. Maximum ambient temperature: +167°F. Max. operating pressure: 115 PSI.
Georgia Water Tanks now stocks the Myers (division of Pentair) 20 MD cistern pump. Available in 120V only, it provides over 15 gpm at 50 PSI, perfect for irrigating community gardens and city lots. It’s 5″ submergence requirement is one of the lowest of any vertical pump.
Georgia Water Tanks now offers the Sta-Rite (division of Pentair) 4″ well pumps, with a custom flow sleeve for cistern installations. The pumps are suitable for up to 100 gpm at 100 psi, and work very well with our IQ Pump VFD/controllers.
