Maelstrom Water Tank Filter

Our revolutionary Maelstrom filters set a new standard in pre-tank rainwater filtering. Filtering multiple pipes at a single point, the Maelstrom’s unique U-shaped filter keeps leaves and debris down to 180 microns out of your rainwater tank. They also significantly increase your water catchment efficiency, even at high flow rates (96% at 10 litres per second in wet systems).

How it works

* Rainwater enters the Maelstrom through either of the horizontal-facing couplings.
* The rainwater then enters the Primary Filter (J). The unique curved filter slows the         velocity of the water by changing the direction of it’s flow.
* Surrounding the Primary Filter is a Secondary Filter (C), comprising of a nylon mesh  bag which filters fine particulates larger than 180 micron. This filter assembly is easily removable and will require periodic maintenance.
*The filtered rainwater then continues to move through the Maelstrom to the Filtered Water Outlet (F) and into the rainwater tank or pipe (if attached).
