Improve tank ventilation

The Vent Cowl Weatherproof helps protect the quality of your rainwater by letting your tank “breathe” without letting mosquitoes and other nasties in. This is especially important if your inlet pipes are plumbed directly into your tank rather than opening to pour through your tank screen.

Clean and install with ease

The twist-off cap can be easily removed for cleaning, while the flange design makes it easy to fit and glue the Vent Cowl Weatherproof on top of your tank or toilet vent.

Vent Cowls help Secure your System  by enclosing your rain harvesting to outside influences, including pollutants, insects and pests. Avoiding contamination keeps your water safer for use.

Manage Standing Water with a Rain Harvesting Vent Cowl by allowing your tank and rainwater to breath, reducing the negative effects of a system that can’t breath.

  • Product FAQs

    When would I use a weatherproof vs a standard vent cowl?

    Both standard and weatherproof vent cowls allow fresh air to circulate within your rainwater tank. Weatherproof vent cowls incorporate a cap that shields the stainless steel screen from light (UV) and the weather. They can be used to provide a light (UV) and weather-proof vent on the top surface of your rainwater tank.

    Do I need to use a vent cowl if I have a Maelstrom filter installed on my tank?

    Vent cowls are optional for rainwater tanks with and without Maelstrom filters. However, the benefit of a vent cowl is that it will ensure the unrestricted flow of fresh air within your tank.

    How do I install my chosen vent cowl product?
