Rainwater Harvesting Filter

This filter is made in Germany by 3P Technik and is designed as a cost effective way to channel pure rainwater into a holding tank in a rainwater harvesting system. It will fit various downpipe types and sizes and has a stainless steel mesh inside which filters out all but the tiniest contaminants coming down the downpipe from the guttering. I use one of these very successfully and the only maintenance it needs is filter cleaning during the autumn when the leaves are falling. This is easily accomplished by twisting and withdrawing the filter element and giving it a few taps to remove any stubborn blockages. During the rest of the year no maintenance is required.

 

It is much more effective than a simple garden type rainwater diverter and not as expensive as the Wisy rainwater filters. Here is a large pdf of the 3P Filter Collector.
