The Concrete Auto Tank Vacuum (TAVK02) saves you on tank cleaning costs and increases your tank water quality by automatically drawing sediment off the floor of your tank whenever it overflows. This model is suitable for concrete tanks.
Install and Forget
The patented Auto Tank Vacuum can be easily attached to your overflow outlets. It automatically draws sediment off the bottom of your tank and removes it through your overflows, making the entire system simple, effective and virtually maintenance-free.
Save on Tank Cleaning Costs
Because it automatically draws sediment off the bottom of your tank, the Auto Tank Vacuum helps you save money by cutting the cost of regular tank cleaning and frequent filter cartridge replacement.
Increase Tank Water Quality
The Auto Tank Vacuum plays an important role in preserving the quality of the rainwater you collect by drawing out heavy metals, bacteria and other fine sediments that have settled on your tank floor so they cannot be stirred and resuspended.

Tank Vacuum Installation (Concrete Tanks)
- If you do not have an access hole above your tank overflow outlet, your Automatic Tank Vacuum will need to be installed from the inside of your tank, which must be empty. If this is the case, ask a licensed trade professional to install your tank vacuum.
- Assemble the Automatic Tank Vacuum following Steps 2-5 outlined above. Please note that supplied in the 90mm Concrete kit will be a 90 degree plain elbow in lieu of the flange version.
- Solvent weld glue the socket of the 90 degree elbow and assembled Automatic Tank Vacuum, to the 90mm pipe of your overflow outlet on the inside of your tank. If your tank overflow uses a socket overflow outlet, utilise the short section of 90mm pipe included in your kit and use solvent weld glue to install.
- We recommend installing an insect-proof flap valve and Leaf Catcha or Air Gap at the pipe outlet. This will prevent pests from entering your tank via the tank vacuum and will also complement the anti-syphon vent to further prevent syphoning.
