ORION imports pumps from Italy and China. Before we offer them to the New Zealand market they undergo a rigorous in-house testing process in order to satisfy our own high standards of performance, reliability and durability. We also source some products locally under the brands DAB, ZENIT, BIANCO and LOWARA.

PUMPS FOR SUPPLYING POTABLE (DRINKING STANDARD) WATER UNDER PRESSURE TO HOMES AND BUILDINGS

Question: Is the water supply tank above ground or buried?
Answer: If it is above ground, choose from Jet pumps, Multi Stage pumps, Divertron or Black Samurai. If it is buried, choose any of the above except Multi Stage pumps.
Question: Which model do I choose?
Answer: This depends on two major factors – head and demand. Head is a combination of the distance to be pumped and how much it rises over the distance. In simple terms, if the pump has to deliver a long distance and there is a big rise, then a much larger pump is required. By contacting us we can help you with this, however a simple way of answering this is, if in doubt, go large. If it is a large home with many levels, go large. If the tank is buried, choose either a Divertron or a Black Samurai.
Question: Do I need to order a pressure tank with my pump?
Answer: A pressure tank is mandatory with a Divertron, with all others that have an automatic press control it is optional, not mandatory. However the installation of a pressure tank will mean the pump has to start less often, resulting in a longer life for the pump and less power/electricity consumed.
Question: Do I need to install filters?
Answer: Yes but with caution. Filters can be problematic if not regularly checked and cleaned as if blocked they will significantly and negatively impact on the pump performance. The best practice is to install filters in the gutters to prevent debris entering the supply tank at source and/or an under sink filter for your drinking water.
Question: Are the pumps covered by a warranty?
Answer: Yes, normally a minimum of two years.

PUMPS AND TANKS FOR RE-UTILISING WATER COLLECTED BUT NOT WANTED FOR DRINKING

It is becoming common practice and often mandatory in urban environments for water from the roof to be collected before it is dispersed into the public stormwater system. This practice is commonly referred to as stormwater detention, or stormwater retention.
Question: How do I collect the water?
Answer: There are several ways but the easiest and most practical way is to install a bladder tank, either under the house, under a deck, or in any cavity which will allow water to gravity feed from the roof.
Question: How can I use or get rid of the water that fills the tank?
Answer: If the water stored is to be purely a means of stormwater retention, then consult us to learn how it can be gradually released into the public stormwater system. If you want to re-utilise the water, install a pump on the outlet of the tank to deliver the water to a tap or laundry.
Question: Which type and model of pump should I select?
Answer: Normally you would only need a smaller jet pressure pump, eg Inox 60PC

SUBMERSIBLE PUMPS FOR SENDING SEWAGE EFFLUENT, WASTE WATER AND STORMWATER TO THE SEWER MAIN OR AN EFFLUENT FIELD

Question: Are all submersible pumps capable of pumping both sewage effluent and stormwater?
Answer: No
Question: How do I distinguish between the two?
Answer: For stormwater look under the category “Drainage Pumps”, for sewage effluent look under the category “Vortex Pumps” and/or “Cutter and Grinder Pumps”.
Question: Which model do I choose?
Answer: This depends on the head – a combination of the pipe diameter, distance to be pumped and how much it rises over the distance. In simple terms, if the pump has to deliver a long distance and there is a big rise, it would be a larger pump, if it is a smaller distance with a smaller rise you would select a smaller pump. If you provide us with the distance and height we can advise the model.
Question: Do I need a non return valve?
Answer: Yes
Question: Do I need a high level alarm?
Answer: It is not mandatory but recommended.
Question: Are the pumps covered by a warranty?
Answer: Yes, between 1 and 2 years

PUMP STATIONS FOR THE COLLECTION AND DISPOSAL OF WASTE WATER AND/OR SEWAGE EFFLUENT

Pump Stations are available in capacity ranging from 60 litres to 6500 litres and selection of the size of tank and size of pump is determined by a number of different factors.
Question: What size tank do I need?
Answer: This depends on the amount of effluent that is being discharged into it and if it is a domestic application or a commercial/industrial application.
Question: What size/type do I need for a domestic application?
Answer: If sewage effluent is being discharged into the tank and it is secondary to a gravity fed toilet system within the dwelling, choose between a Sanisplit or a 90 litre Blue Box. If it is the primary system of storage and disposal of sewage effluent, then a 1200 litre polyethelene tank is required to give a minimum of 24 hour storage.
Question: What model submersible pump do I select to go inside the Blue Box or polythelene tank?
Answer: Refer to “Pump Selection Guide – Submersible Pumps”
Question: Does the tank need to be vented?
Answer: Saniplit is self venting, Blue Boxes and polyethelene tanks need to be vented to atmosphere.
