With reference to removing debris from rain water before entering the rain water tank ...


I have tried a couple of different leave eaters. The cheaper plastic mesh ones tends to "foam" very easily and then the rain just runs off, instead of into the tank. The more expensive SS mesh filter types seems to work better initially, but once it gets some moss onto it, it also wastes a lot of water ....

What do you use to remove the debris from your rain ? Pictures please ...


At the one downpipe I may well consider a "first flush" .... at the other this may be difficult to fit in .....


Winter time is not so bad, enough rain, so the wastage is not much of an issue .... now with the changing of the season I want to keep wastage to an absolute minimum ....
