The Versatility of the Gutter Mate Filter and Diverter

Customer Review

When building our completely off-grid house, we were reliant upon collecting rainwater which is stored in a very large, underground tank. This is then pumped into the house, on-demand, after first going through a water treatment plant.

Our main concern, given the abundance of trees on our land, was to ensure that the underground tank didn’t get clogged with leaves and debris coming down the gutters and fall pipes.  Whilst there are devices that can be put into the gutters themselves, these can’t stop everything. (Also cleaning gutters involves steps or ladders, which can be dangerous.  The cleaning of the Gutter Mate is done with your feet firmly on the ground).

Searching for a solution on the internet, I came across Gutter Mate and purchased seven (7) sets, one for each fall pipe on our house and outbuildings.  They have worked like a dream, stopping large amounts of debris from polluting our underground tank.  One of the main advantages is that they are so very easy to clean.

Simon was able to position the Gutter Mate almost at ground level which enabled him to just look down into the filter to inspect for debris.  Cleaning was a 30 second job.  Because of the design of the Gutter Mate, the diverter outlet was capped off with the blanking cap provided and the main outlet from the filter was used taking all the flow from the downpipe.

The use of the GutterMate Filters has eliminated the need for the filter in the underground tank and the associated issues with cleaning such a filter.  With the GutterMate Filter anyone can inspect and clean the filter, this is not the case with in tank or underground filters.

This is a very good product and the support from the Company has been first class.
