First Flush Diverters
First Flush Diverters are installed on each downpipe that supplies water to the tank. They use a simple ball and seat system. The system does not rely on mechanical parts or manual intervention. The system works as the water level rises in the diverter chamber, the ball floats, and once the chamber is full, the ball rests on a seat inside the diverter chamber preventing any further water entering the diverter. All further water is then simply directed to the pipes going to the water tank.
The first flush diverter system also prevents sediment such as, bird droppings, spiders, insects, mosquito eggs and debris from entering the water tank.
Different types of rain heads are available, such as the leaf eater and leaf beater. Modern rain heads come with a new single screen technology increasing the effectiveness of the screen. The rain head inhibits leaves and debris from entering the rain harvesting system resulting in cleaner water and lower water tank maintenance. The rain head works by deflecting leaves and debris away from the flow of water. This enhances catchment efficiency. This rain head pivots so that the outlet that swivels to suit vertical or horizontal downpipes.
These products are quick and easy to install, allow a high flow rate and have good mosquito proof stainless steel mesh.
