Fitting an apprpriately sied water diverter, ten called ‘r washers’,is critical t achieve gd qality water. Water diverters imprve waterqality and redce tank maintenance by
preventing the rst fush owater, which may contain roo contaminants, rom entering the tank.
 They help ensre cleaner water is available r se, which helps
protectrainwater pumps and internal household appliances
sch as cltheswashing machines, tilets, ht water systems, etc.When it rains, water slwly bilds p in the r gttering system bereit exits thrgh the dwnpipe.
The rst fush o water rom the roo cancontain
amnts  bacteria rm decmpsed insects, skinks, birdand animal drppings and cncentrated tannic acid. It may als cntainsediment, water brne heavy metals and chemical resides, all  whichare
undesirable elements to have in a water storage system.
Instead  wing t the rainwater tank, these plltants are diverted withthe initial w  water int the chamber  the water diverter. The waterdiverters rm Rain Harvesting tilise a dependable ball and seat system-
a simple automatic system that does not relyon mechanical parts or manual Intervention.Fitting an appropriately sizedwater diverter is critical toachieve good quality water.
 
As the water level rises in the diverter chamber the ball ats, and ncethe chamber i ll, the ball rests n a seat inside the diverter chamberpreventing any rther water entering the diverter. The sbseqent w water is then atmatically directed alng the pipe system t the tank.
A Slow Release Control Valve ensures the chamber
empties itsel aterrain and resets atmatically. The diverted water need nt be wastedwater becase the drain pipe rm the diverter chamber can be ftted t astandard drip irrigatin system.

 rain heads, als rm Rain Harvesting, are sel cleaning devices thatdeect leaves and debris away rm the w  rainwater. Nt nly dthese devices help stp gtters blcking with leaves and debris, they alsprevent eaves ding dring heavy rainall.By deecting larger debris pstream, rain heads ensre the diverterchamber and Slw Release Cntrl Valve d nt blck p as easily.
Rain heads not only help Water Diverters operate more eciently inpreventing ne sediments and pollutants rom entering the rainwatertank, they also ensure Water Diverters drain and reset automaticallyater rainall, signicantly reducing system maintenance.“Lea Eater
