1 German Standard (DIN) for Rainwater Harvesting: technology and products

2

3 Ecological and sustainable water management is a goal of the precipitation water management. The alternatives to the customary drainage of precipitation water are, among other things, rainwater harvesting and infiltration, as well as the decentralized retention of rainwater. A new system technology with new components has been developed for rainwater harvesting in households and commercial and industrial companies. The standard for rainwater harvesting was developed taking the generally-recognized rules of technology for drinking water installations into consideration according to the standard series DIN1988 and according to DIN EN 1717 and for drainage systems according to the standard series DIN EN and DIN Requirements on system technology for the planning, installation, operation and maintenance that have proven themselves in practice are set down in this standard DIN 1989Rainwater Harvesting Systems

4 The standard series DIN 1989 „Rainwater Harvesting Systems“ consists of the following parts: Part 1: Planning, Installation, Operation and Maintenance Part 2: Filter for Rainwater harvesting Part 3: Rainwater Reservoirs Part 4: Components for Control and supplemental supply DIN 1989Rainwater Harvesting Systems

5 The standard series DIN „Rainwater Harvesting Systems“ Part 1: Planning, Installation, Operation and Maintenance This standard applies to systems utilizing rainwater in households and commercial and industrial companies, as well as in public organizations, in which it is used for flushing toilets, for cooling purposes, for washing and cleaning systems and for watering green areas, for instance. Following parts are treated: Collection Areas, Treatment, Rainwater Reservoirs and Add-On Parts, Process Water Pumps, Supplemental Feed Systems, System Control Unit, Supplemental Feed Modules, Central Rainwater Systems and Hybrid Systems, Pipe Systems and Labelling, Seepage of the Overflow Water, Protection against Backflow, Types of systems and set up possibilities, Design of the Reservoir Size, Operation, Inspection and Maintenance DIN 1989Rainwater Harvesting Systems

6 The standard series DIN „Rainwater Harvesting Systems“ Part 2: Filter for Rainwater harvesting This part lay down the standard and tests for mechanical working filters which are installed in the supply of reservoirs for rainwater harvesting systems. DIN 1989Rainwater Harvesting Systems There is a multitude of special filters for rainwater harvesting systems that are distinguished by design, installation position and functional principle (e.g. filter matting, filter screen). Filters are to be installed in the supply line to the reservoir as a general rule. They keep foreign material away from the rainwater reservoir that could bring about malfunctions in the system or make the water quality poorer. Rainfall pipes or central location in front of the reservoir are possible installation places. Furthermore, filters can be directly located in the rainwater supply line inside of the reservoir.

7 The standard series DIN „Rainwater Harvesting Systems“ Part 3: Rainwater Reservoirs This part lay down the standard, tests and assessments of conformance for manufactured monolithic reservoirs, for manufactured multi-parts reservoirs and for reservoirs made on-site. DIN 1989Rainwater Harvesting Systems Rainwater reservoirs are for both the storage and the cleaning of the rainwater. Reservoirs can be set up both above-ground and below-ground. The set up location should be chosen in such a way that the stored water is protected against strong thermal effects, frost and light. The selection of the reservoir has to be done in coordination with the installation location and the pollution to be expected. Standardized reservoirs are to be used.

8 The standard series DIN „Rainwater Harvesting Systems“ Part 4: Components for Control and supplemental supply This part lay down the standard and tests for manufactured or made on-site assembly units for supplemental supply units for reservoirs, for system control units of process water pump and hybrid units. DIN 1989Rainwater Harvesting Systems Supplemental feed modules consist of a supplemental feed device and a system control unit and are usually produced in the factory as an assembly. Process water pumps, the supplemental feed system and the system control unit are combined in one assembly in the factory into central rainwater systems. Hybrid containers are used as a preference in larger rainwater harvesting systems.

9 DIN 1989Rainwater Harvesting Systems System Control unit The system control unit controls automatically the functioning of the rainwater harvesting system The supplemental feed has to be done via a safety device Type AA (unobstructed free outlet) or Type AB (free outlet with a non circular overflow) according DIN EN 1717 when drinking water is used. The safety device is to be installed outside of the rainwater reservoir and outside of the entry shaft (dome). For continuous operating, the rainwater harvesting system can also be operated independently of the rainwater reservoir.

12 CLEAN WATER Products for rainwater harvesting special for cleaning rainwater OUR MISSION

13 The first cleaning step in the rainwater system is the filter. The rainwater flows from the roof to the filter. Here dirt particles and debris are separated from the water. The cleaned water flows to the tank. The dirt is washed to the storm water pipe or soakaway with a small amount of rainwater. All 3P rainwater filters have stainless steel inserts, which are easy to remove and easy to clean. Their many different working principles and connection possibilities allow for their use in many different installation situations, with the advantage of very low maintenance. 4 cleaning steps 1.Cleaning step Filter By using an underground tank, the water is stored in dark and cool conditions. Here the second cleaning step takes place. In the water column, any fine residual particles settle to the bottom of the tank. The rainwater Calmed Inlet prevents any disturbance of this sedimentation layer. At the same time the Calmed Inlet ensures that oxygenated water is introduced to the lower layers of the stored water in the tank. This oxygen rich water prevents anaerobic conditions from forming in the storage tank and ensures that the water stays fresh. Any particles that are lighter than water (e.g. flower pollen) float slowly to the water surface. The expertly designed 3P Overflow Siphon, with a skimmer effect, removes this floating layer. The regular overflow from the storage tank is important to get the optimum water quality. It prevents souring of the water. The floating layer could otherwise build up over time, and so reduce oxygen diffusion at the water surface, which in turn could lead to anaerobic conditions in the tank. 2. Cleaning step Calmed inlet 3. Cleaning step Overflow siphon 4. Cleaning step Floating pump intake The 3P Pump Intake floats at all times, suspended just below the water surface where the cleanest water lies. From this position the water is extracted by the pump. A ball float, filled with air, suspends the intake, which has a further filter and a check valve.

Due to the special mesh structure of the sieve, any dirt washes directly into the storm water which means the filter is self cleaning, with very low maintenance. 4.Cleaned water flows to the cistern. 5.Dirt goes to the storm water.

Larger dirt particles are washed across the cascades directly to the sewer. 3.Pre filtered water then flows over the secondary filter (mesh size 0.65 mm). Due to the special structure of the sieve mesh, any dirt is washed directly into the storm water which means the filter is self cleaning, low maintenance. 4.Cleaned water flows to the storage tank. 5.Dirt goes to the storm water.
