The Gutter Mate Installation at Richmond Park

For Gutter Mate, every rainwater harvesting system should start with the Gutter Mate Diverter and Filter, which applies the first phase of filtration to rainwater diverted from the drainpipe, whilst also acting as a major asset in protecting soakaways in all properties.

In May 2015 Gutter Mate installed a  rainwater harvesting system at The Royal Richmond Park in London. The park is a national nature reserve. The installation was part of the park’s Nature Trail Project in which ponds are located. In dry months the ponds lost too much water, so Gutter Mate installed a simple and effective rainwater harvesting system which pumps collected rainwater in to the ponds when needed. The pump used was a multi-stage submersible pump.

Rainwater Harvesting at Richmond Park Ponds

A 10,000 litre storage system is used to collect rainwater using a Vortex rainwater collection filter. As can be seen from the photographs, debris issues were a major concern from leaves and moss on the barn roof. The filter has solved that issue. This system or similar, is an ideal solution for farm buildings, providing drinking water and wash-down water for livestock.

Gutter Mate win the Green Apple Environment Award

Gutter Mate won a Green Apple Environment Award in the national campaign to find Britain’s greenest companies, councils and communities.

The family business offers a range of rainwater recycling products, including the Gutter Mate rainwater diverter which director Haydon Robinson invented. GutterMate was entered to the prestigious Green Apple Awards after winning ‘Best Recycle Project’ at last year’s Hertfordshire Green Awards.

They competed against more than 500 other nominations and will be presented with their Green Apple Award at a glittering presentation ceremony in the House of Commons on November 12. Gutter Mate director Mark Robinson will be attending. “We are delighted to have won this award and are looking forward to the presentation evening.”

As a result of this success they have been invited to have their winning paper published in The Green Book, the leading international work of reference on environmental best practice, so that others around the world can follow their example and learn from their experience.

Gutter Mate will also be considered to represent their country in the European Business Awards for the Environment.

The Green Apple Awards began in 1994 and have become established as the country’s major recognition for environmental endeavour among companies, councils, communities and countries.
