Fine Mesh Insert for the GutterMate Diverter & Filter
We have 2 sets of FMI. One for the Gutter Mate Original and one for the Gutter Mate 2.
To identify which Gutter Mate you have you can do this without taking apart the filter.
On the Original Gutter Mate, the diverter outlet finishes with a 90 degree bend onto which the connecting hose is fitted. If you have this filter you need to order a FMI set for the Original Gutter Mate.
The Gutter Mate 2 is identified as follows. The diverter outlet is the same length as the main outlet on the filter, there is no bend. Also on the Gutter Mate 2 body, approximately 25mm from the bottom of the body there is an annular ring which has no gloss finish, around the body, this represents the maximum water level in the water butt. On the white GM it is more difficult to see this annular ring.
