Rainharvesting Guardian Tank Screen RainHarvesting's Primary Guardian Tank Screen

Available in 2 sizes in the drop down Add to Cart box below. 12 inch and 16 inch.

Unless rainwater enters the tank through pipes that are connected directly to the top or side of the tank, you must ensure all water passes through a tank screen at tank entry point. The tank screen must include a non-corrosive screen of not more than 1mm to keep mosquitoes and pests out.

Features and Benefits

Mosquito proof 316 stainless steel mesh with 0.955 aperture
UV stabilized polypropylene

While tank screens will further filter out leaves and debris, rain heads should be fitted at each downpipe that supplies water to the tank, and first flush water diverters should be fitted 'upstream' of the tank screen to optimize water quality. The tank screen should provide the final point of protection not the only barrier for leaves, debris and pests. Tank screens must be secured to the tank to ensure it remains in place.
