AcquaSaver water switches application:
The Finsbury Powamac “AcquaSaver” is an automatic and an economic “mains to rainwater” changeover switch. This near indestructible mechanical changeover switch is suitable and approved for domestic and commercial systems where rainwater is harvested and used inside the property. When the rainwater runs out, the system automatically switches back to mains water. When the tanks have been recharged by a rain shower or two, the system will also switch back to rainwater.
This Australian designed and manufactured mechanical water switch has few moving parts and is made from durable brass fittings. Virtually maintenance free and durable for a long service life.
