As with all WISY filters: Free flow of water is enshured, the cross section is not restricted at any point. There is no risk of blockage even during torrential rainfall events which may flush large quantities of debris through the downpipe. Even a tennis ball could fall unobstructed through the RainCatcher RC. It's hydraulic efficiency is excellent. In average rainfall, over 90% of the run-off rainwater will be collected.
The RainCatcher RC is installed in the vertical rainwater downpipe. It diverts the rainwater to a garden barrel or storage tank. The special construction of the RainCatcher RC is designed to separate coarse materials like leaves directly through the downpipe to the soakaway or drain. The collected rainwater can be used for garden irrigation.
The housing of RainCatcher RC is made of UV-resistant polypropylene, suitable for tropical sunlight. The housing has an inlet diameter directly fitting for 110 mm round pipes. Smaller downpipes can be connected with an adapter.
Installed at the correct height, RainCatcher RC automatically functions as an overflow for the rainwater barrel. As soon as the rainwater barrel is full, it diverts any excess water to the storm drain or soakaway. There is no risk of overflow.
The components are manufactured using the latest production techniques and are required to undergo the most rigorous quality control to ensure trouble-free operation. In the unlikely occurrence that parts do prove defective, WISY will guarantee replacement for 10 years.
