Wall Mounted First Flush Rain Water Diverter Kit

If you have a large surface area to collect from, you will want a larger capacity diverter.

First Flush Water Diverters improve water quality, reduce tank maintenance and protect pumps by minimizing the first flush of water, which may contain contaminants from the roof, from enteringthe tank.

Instead of flowing to the water tank, pollutants are diverted with the initial flow of water into the chamber of the water diverter. The first flush water diverters utilize a dependable ball and seat system - a simple automatic system that does not rely on mechanical parts or manual intervention. As the water level rises in the diverter chamber the ball floats, and once the chamber if full, the ball rests on a seat inside the diverter chamber preventing any further water entering the diverter. The subsequent flow of water is then automatically directed to the collection tank.

The inlet and outlet on the end caps are 3 inch schedule 40 pipe.
