The First Flush Advanced is more effective at diverting contaminated water. Its patent-pending high-flow inlet largely solves the problem of fast-moving dirty water “skipping” over or around the diverter entrance on traditional T-junction first flush diverters.
With its electronic advanced release valve, the First Flush Advanced gives you greater control over how frequently you release your diverted water. Increase your release frequency to maximise water quality or release the dirty water less frequently to maximise stored water volumes.
Maintaining your First Flush Advanced couldn’t be easier. The transparent exit funnel allows for easy visual inspection, while the funnel’s tapered shape draws sediment into the exit flow to reduce build-up and blockages. You can also use the rapid-exit valve to fully empty the diverter as required.
Generally speaking, the more water you divert, the better the quality of the rainwater that ends up in your tank. However, diverting more rainwater than necessary can lead to volume shortages, so it’s important to calculate your diversion needs, and divert water accordingly.
The following formulas offer general guidelines for calculating how much water you should divert:
This calculation will allow you to determine what length and size pipe or pipes you need for your diversion chambers.
First Flush diverters help you plan for volume by allowing you to choose your catchment volume with custom catchment size and/ or an advanced release valve.
First Flush Diverters help divert the first flush, through their design. They are installed using a T junction or high flow inlet to which the diversion chamber is fitted. As the chamber fills with the initial dirty water from your roof, a ball rises until it seals the inlet, allowing the rest of your rainwater, which is much cleaner, to flow directly to your tank.
