Rated 4 out of 5 by from Functional and easy to fit The instructions were very easy to follow - whole fitting took about 15mins. Luckily it rained soon after and I was able to check that the diverter was working and it was - perfectly! Had looked around and the screw fix price was among the best and for the quality of the product and the ease of fitting proved to be very good value.

Does this have a filter so that it stops debris from going past the unit? If it does is this easily accessible to empty?

Asked by: LUDavid
No, the rainwater diverter does not come with a filter.

Does this product divert all the water until the butt is full?

Asked by: Robbie55
The rainwater diverter will divert a majority of the water to the water butt. It is estimated that approximately 70% of the rainwater is diverted to the water butt. It will then fill the water butt up to the height of the inlet hose which should be 100mm from the top of the water butt. Once the water raises above the inlet pipe it will then feed it back to the downpipe.

Does this have to be fitted to a vertical down pipe or can it be fitted to a down pipe that is fixed at a 45 degree angle?

Asked by: ASL14
The rainwater diverter must be installed vertically.

Can I switch the diverter manually when the butt is empty?

In the winter I don't want any water going into the butt so it would be useful to be able to switch the diverter to send all water down the drain.
Asked by: Paul1964
There is not the option to manually stop the diverter from taking water to the water butt. The only suggestion that may work would be to remove the hose to the water butt and tape it upwards to the downpipe. This will overflow the reservoir inside the diverter and the water will continue down the downpipe.

Can I use this product upside down to stop the water butt overfllling, sending the water back into the downpipe. Thanks

Asked by: Battiep
Unfortunately the product has not be designed to use in this way and we wouldn't be able to guarantee that it would work.
