Freeflush 40mm push fit tank connector and calmed inlet

£24.99
Maximum quantity available reached.


Pre-filtration, a calmed inlet, a skimming overflow and a floating intake are all key components of any rainwater harvesting system to ensure good water quality and reduce solids, sediment and debris.

The calmed inlet works by turning the flow through 180 degrees and allowing the flow to open up through an expansion. This ensures:

1. The sediment on the tank base is not suspended through turbulence 

2. The upward velocities are reduced through the expansion to ensure solids settle out 

This is  great addition to the high flow diverter-tank linking kit (75/40mm). If using in combination with this kit a tank connector is not required. 

This kit is available in 3 options: 

Kit 1 : Full kit with 1m length of pipe 

Kit 2: As kit 1 without 1m pipe (40mm PVC push fit pipe widely available) 

Kit 3: As Kit 1 without 1m pipe and tank connector (for use with the high flow high flow diverter-tank linking kit, tank connector supplied with kit)

Please note colours may vary. The calmed inlet is unseen since it is located within the tank.
