tank accessories help improve the quality of the water you get from
your water tank.
quality water can clog up soaker hoses, and provide poor-tasting,
poor-smelling discoloured water. Not good.
follow the path of the pure rainwater as it falls on your roof,
all the way into your tank, and look at how it's quality can be
Guttering. The first step in the journey comes when the
water hits your guttering. If you've been clever enough to instal
guttering, then the vast majority of leaves and other
rubbish has dried, and blown away. Failing that, one of the better
gutter-guard products available will help keep rubbish out of the
gutter, where it tends to collect and decay. Eventually, the decayed
rubbish is carried through the downpipe to your tank by the next
rain. Stopping rubbish collecting in your gutter is the
first step to high quality water. From that point, we have a range
of quality tank
accessories to improve water quality, and make life easier.

Rainheads. The next place water quality is compromised
is when the water leaves (no pun intended!) the gutter, and starts
its journey through the downpipe. In many instances, the top of
the downpipe will be blocked with accumulated rubbish. Not only
does this cause a degradation of water quality, but it often means
that water can't pass quickly enough, and the gutters overflow.
Installing a Rainhead
between the gutter and the downpipe solves these problems. Any rubbish
passes easily out of the gutter, and is directed onto the ground,
while the filtered water passes straight past. Fitting a
Rainhead removes leaves and rubbish from the water, and the
First Flush Diverters. While SmartFLO guttering,
leaf-guard and rainheads all help remove vegetable matter from the
water, they can't remove particles less than 1mm in size. The first
line of defence against dust, dirt, pollens etc., is a First-Flush
Diverter. The diverter takes the first part of the
water coming from the roof, and directs it away, so that the 'first-flush'
of water carrying dirt, pollens, bird droppings etc. doesn't reach
your tank. Fitting a First
Flush Diverter prevents the majority of the smaller particles
from reaching your tank.
Tank Level Gauges. Now that you've got all that beautiful,
high-quality water flowing to your tank, just how much water is
you'd like to know, then fitting a tank Water
Tank Level Gauge will do the job.

Fire Plugs. If you happen to live in a fire-prone
area, that's another reason to choose SmartFLO
Guttering when you have the chance. Leaf material dries
and blows away, instead of remaining in the guttering and providing
a very dangerous place for sparks to start a fire.
you're in a fire-prone area, you'll also be interested in the brilliant
Plugs (illustrated left). Installed on your downpipes,
Plugs give you the ability to easily and quickly fill
your downpipes and gutters with water if fire threatens, without
having to go up a ladder.
