Rain Harvesting First Flush Diverters

first-flush-water-diverter-logo.gifFirst Flush Diverters help ensure cleaner water is available for use, which protects rainwater pumps, water filters and internal household appliances (if whole home system) such as washing machines and toilets. If you think about how much time goes by in between rains, your roof will get dirty with dirt, pollen, bird & squirrel droppings, etc.

First Flush Diverters, such as the 3″ and 4″ kits, are installed at each downspout that supplies water to the tank/cistern. These utilizes a ball and seat system – a simple automatic system that does not rely on mechanical parts or manual intervention.

As the water level rises in the diverter chamber, the ball floats, and once the chamber is full, the ball rests on a seat inside the diverter chamber preventing any further water from entering the diverter. The subsequent flow of water is then automatically directed along the pipe system to the tank/cistern.

On a site that provides the opportunity for the end cap of the  diverter to be positioned above ground (to drain out and be accessible for maintenance), an In-Ground Diverter allows a ‘wet’ system to be converted into a ‘dry’ system.
