For some Rain Harvesting systems, filtering the rainwater you collect at a central point can allow for easier cleaning and maintenance. The Filter Pit lets you create a central filtering point in a convenient location so you can do just that.
In addition to the usual easy-clean benefits of any central filtering point, optional add-ons make the task even easier. The Junk Basket captures larger debris for easier removal, while the riser height extension lets you raise the top of your filter pit to ground level.
With its mosquito-proof 955 micron stainless steel screen and lid, the Filter Pit keeps leaves, debris, mosquitoes and other nasties out of your Rain Harvesting system to improve the quality of the water you harvest.
Filter pits filter leaves and debris out of your rain harvesting system with their 955 micron screens. They also eliminate splashing to increase the volume of rainwater you harvest.
Filter pits secure the system with the 955 micron mosquito-proof screens that prevent insects and other animals from entering and breeding or living in your rain harvesting system.
Regularly remove the lid from your Filter Pit to inspect it, cleaning the mosquito-proof filter screen when required.
For ease of maintenance, we recommend using a Junk Basket to easily capture and remove larger debris from your Filter Pit.
The filter pit is designed to accommodate 90mm and 100mm pipes. Inlet pipes can be installed through all four side walls of the top of your filter pit. Outlet pipes can be installed through all four side walls of the bottom of your filter pit. Two inlet pipes and two outlet pipes can be installed to each side wall, so you can have up to eight inlet pipes and eight outlet pipes.
Filter pits are supplied without inlet and outlet holes. Inlet and outlet holes are installed/cut onsite during installation. For detailed installation instructions, visit the Support page for your chosen product.
Risers are used to extend the inlet height on your filter pit by 300mm. The extension height is the same for both the 560mm and 700mm products.
Yes, filter pits are supplied with a metal cover or lid. The cover prevents debris and vermin from entering your filter pit.
No. Filter pits cannot be installed where the outlet pipe rises higher than the pit’s filter screen. In other words, the inlet to the rainwater tank cannot be located higher than the bottom outlet on your filter pit.
