Downpipes are often directed straight into a normal water butt. When the water butt is full the water butt will overflow water coming down the downpipe.
This is a special bypass diverter kit for Rainwater Terrace water butts that solves this problem.
Our special diverter feeds the rainwater into the top of the Rainwater Terrace as usual (pipe A) but we’ve added pipe (B) that takes any excess down to our outlet pipe (C).
This outlet pipe performs its usual function of stopping the stored water from stagnating.
The outlet can either be directed into a drain or taken elsewhere in the garden. We can supply whatever lengths of pipe you need to suit your situation. We also include a connector so that you can fit it to a hosepipe size pipe if that is more convenient. (Handy if you are connecting to a soaker hose).
This kit Includes:-
- A modified diverter. (This will be a modified version of the diverter included with a Rainwater Terrace water butt)
- A 25mm T- connector
- A 25mm to 13mm reducer (to fit a hosepipe)
Pipes B (2m) and D (2m) Pipes A & C (1m) of inlet and outlet pipes are already included with the purchase of a Rainwater Terrace water butt.
THIS BYPASS KIT CANNOT BE PURCHASE ON IT'S OWN. IT MUST BE PURCHASE TOGETHER WITH A RAINWATER TERRACE WATER BUTT. If you have purchased one separately and forgot to add this kit, please contact us first with your previous order details so we can verify this.
