Floating Outtake

The cleanest water in a tank is under the surface at the top. The Floating Outtake ensures that it is this water that is drawn to the building.

  • Ball float suspends the stainless-steel filter below the surface
  • 2m hose has a collar that keeps the filter out of any sediment when tank is low
  • Includes 32mm fitting with through wall option plus a 25mm reducer

Technical Details

(includes 25mm Reducer)

The Floating Outtake improves the quality of water going to the house, building or trough by ensuring the best water is taken from the top of the tank.

The bottom of the Floating Outtake hose is connected to the tank’s outlet by a fitting.
This outlet may be on the lower side or very bottom of the tank. The ball float suspends the stainless-steel filter at the top of the hose just below the water surface where the cleanest water lies.

When the water level is very low and the hose lies on its side, the collar helps to keep the filter above any sediment layer. Taking only clean water from the tank can also reduce pump system problems and maintenance costs.


  • Install in new tank, or empty existing tank prior to fitting (Remove any remaining sediment).
  • Check tank outlet fitting size. If not 32mm or 25mm as provided, purchase required adaptor fittings. Note: Marley recommends the use of Teflon tape on all fitting threads.
  • If at full extension the tank hose will be higher than the highest water level, remove the bottom outtake fitting, cut hose to height and replace the fitting.
  • Screw on fitting, fill tank, and enjoy better quality water.
