For a wet system. Not my first choice but just the way the house was set up. Previously there was no filtration or first flush diversion on the system and we were getting a good deal of rubbish in the tanks. This system will divert the first 150 litres and then catch the rest in the tanks. As always retrofitting is much more difficult than a de novo installation.
we decided to go with this option over putting mesh on the gutters – we were quoted $5000AUD for the mesh (we have a very large return verandah) and I felt it restricts you from getting in to clean out the gutters.
This diversion kit cost $232AUD and the 1.5metre length of 300mm stormwater PVC you need in addition was $138AUD.
Now just waiting for the a good rain.
If I had known about it at the time, I may have used this system instead:
Hey, I’m over here in Castlemaine. I am gonna see nicole in Daylesford – i seem to remember a lift possibility or car share thing.
My diverter charges out and drains into a receiving landscape (in future a deciduous orchard with smallish swales to spread the discharge sideways)
