Rainus Downpipe Filter
The Rainus Downpipe Filter is a proven winner with customers who have had problems with blocked gulleypots, underground pipework to rainwater storage systems, soakaways or drains. It is ideal for retro-fitting to properties where there is currently no filter in place, before existing below-ground tanks and drainage systems where it would not be practical to install a below ground filter. Also, for use before soakaways, ponds and infiltration systems as this is a Soakaway Defender, taking the organic matter away from soakaway or rainwater tank.
It is a professional filter, and is sufficient for protecting the rainwater quality even in an underground rainwater tank.
The Rainus is so easy to monitor, due to its installation position in the downpipe -- no need to lift heavy lids or to climb down into storage tanks!
It's removable Stainless Steel mesh filters to below 1mm particle size keeping flies and mosquitoes out of the rainwater tank.
The Rainus fits 80mm, 90mm and 100mm down-pipes (usually of the aluminium or zinc varieties) and, with the adaptor, also the 68mm round and 65mm square down-pipes which are the common sizes of plastic down-pipe in the UK. For square downpipes the unit fits into the downpipe, there will be gaps around the downpipe corners, but the water flows perfectly well into the downpipe.
Please note the dimensions of the unit (see below). It should be installed at a height where it can be easily maintained.
The filter insert will need cleaning once or twice a year for optimal efficiency. The filter is easily removed and slotted back into place for maintenance.
