A water contaminant removal product used in rainwater collection
systems. For residential and commercial application in light
and heavy rainfall and pollution conditions.
An automatic rainwater diversion system to remove contaminants
in the initial flow (first flush) of water through a collection
system before storage.
Contaminated water flows into the diverter chamber (which
utilises a section of standard PVC pipe). Once the chamber is full,
the uncontaminated water will flow to the tank, storage vessel or
pool. This system improves water quality, and reduces tank
maintenance and protects pumps by preventing contaminants from
entering the tank.
Different sizes of diverter are available. The type of diverter
to use will depend on volume of water to be diverted, downpipe
systems and site characteristics. Diverted water may be discarded
or used in garden irrigation. Can be used in wet and dry systems.
Can be attached to new or existing PVC downpipes of 90mm or 100mm

Rain Harvesting Products are approved under
AS 2070 and by the US Federal Drug Administration as Food Grade
Products. Hence there are no concerns during in-use phase as
installed in homes. However, if installing the diverter in existing
pipework, ensure existing pipes are suitable for purose- ie. If
potable use is intended, existing pipework may need to be
