Simple Way to Conserve Water by Collecting Rainfall for Various Outdoor Uses

November 17, 2012 Leave a comment

Atlantic Water Gardens RHCRU Clean Rain Ultra Downspout DiverterRoughly 60% of water is used outdoors making harvesting rainwater a smart, green and easy way to conserve water helping both the environment and your water bill too. The Clean Rain™ Ultra Downspout Diverter from Atlantic Water Gardens is an all-in-one rainwater filtration and collection system designed to ensure the water you store is bug and debris-free. The Ultra Downspout Diverter installs directly into the downspout of your home’s gutter and uses the force of rainwater to deflect leaves, debris and bugs off of its leaf slide and stainless steel (mosquito-proof) mesh screen. Depending upon the intensity of the rainfall the Smart Sense™ First Flush valve will divert dirty roof water from the initial rainfall and then collect the clean water that comes after. The Downspout Diverter is compatible with standard garden hoses, 1″ sump hoses, 1.5″ pool hoses and 3″ schedule 40 pipes. Any of these hoses can be connected directly to the Clean Rain Diverter and used to fill up a rain barrel or cistern, pond, pool or even to directly provide water to plants and trees.

The Clean Rain Ultra Downspout Diverter can be installed at any height along the gutter downspout. It is recommended to install it at a reachable height to make maintenance, such as removing leaves and debris, an easy task. To install, 29.3″ of downspout will need to be removed as this is where the Downspout Diverter will be setup. It comes with 2 downspout adaptors to fit 2″ x 3″, 3″ x 4″, 3″, 4″ and schedule 40 pipes. The Downspout Diverter will work automatically upon installation and can be switched off when desired if you don’t need to divert water. Its exterior is white but can be painted to match the color of the downspout it is being connected too for a clean look.
