Guttermate 2 Rain Diverter and Filter
The only rain water diverter and rain water saver which diverts and filters all the rainwater before it goes in the water butt, the drain or soakaway, and will automatically shut off the flow to the water butt when full.
Standard rain water diverters do not filter the water and block very easily. When blocked it is not an easy job to open up the diverter to clean it out. Rainwater collecting with the Gutter Mate is simple and efficient, no matter if you are saving to a water butt, water tank or a full Rain water Harvesting system.
Downpipe (Drainpipe) Sizes
The Gutter Mate is designed to accept 68mm, 76mm and 80mm diameter and 65mm and 75mm square downpipes, without any adaptors or reducers, other than the square to round adaptor supplied with the filter, if needed as per the instructions. This adaptor is used if your square downpipe is fitted using “close fitting mounting brackets” to your house. If the downpipe is fitted with “standoff mounting brackets”, the square to round adaptor is not needed.
If the downpipe is larger than 80mm you will need a male to female reducer to get into the top of the filter. The Gutter Mate filter should not be used on downpipes larger than 100mm diameter and if using this diameter of downpipe consideration should be given as to the total roof area the filter is rainwater collecting from.
The Gutter Mate rain water collecting filter can be used in the following applications. Two common sizes of downpipe for Greenhouses, sheds and garages are 50 and 40mm diameter downpipes. The filter can be used on these downpipes, when using these sizes a male female reducer will be needed for connection to the main outlet of the filter. The standard reducer available is 68mm female to 50mm, this can be used on either 40 or 50 mm. downpipe.
What's in the Box?
Gutter Mate Rain Water Filter and water saver. The product is made from Polypropylene and is available in Black, White or Brown to suit the colour of your drainpipe.
The product is supplied with the fixing screws and mounting bracket. There are 5 parts to the filter which are a slide fit into each other.
The filter basket filters all the rainwater which falls down the downpipe. The user has the choice of using the Diverter outlet ( the smaller of the 2) or the main outlet to divert the rain water into a rainwater tub or rain water harvesting tank.
If the degree of filtration is inadequate for the use you are putting the rain water too, we have a Fine Mesh Insert available which fits into the filter basket and provides a far higher degree of filtration (800 micron). This will allow you to use the rainwater in your pressure washer and for washing the car. THIS FINE MESH INSERT IS NOT INCLUDED IN THE BOX WITH THE FILTER. If you wish to purchase this, you will find it in here..
If your guttering is attached to square downpipe, there is an adaptor in the box to allow the filter to be fitted to square drainpipes which are installed with close fitting brackets. If you have standard brackets you will not need the adaptor.
This rain water filter goes a long way to solving an age old problem associated with guttering and drainpipe systems on buildings.
The biggest problem with guttering is it gets filled with leaves, stones, sand and moss. The result can be blockages or over flowing of the gutters. This in turn can lead to damp penetrating the wall of your building or damp getting to the roof joists.
Gutter blockage can lead to extremely expensive repairs to your property.
The other problem associated with blocked guttering and drainpipes is the inherent danger of inspecting and cleaning them. Use of ladders should be avoided at all times if there is an alternative, namely the Gutter Mate Filter.
