Kerbside Stormwater Recycling Kit
The Kerbside Stormwater Recycling Kit lets you water your garden with stormwater recovered from the roadside gutters. When rain is expected you should setup the kit at a stormwater outlet at the kerbside. Insert the polycarbonate cup into the 90mm stormwater pipe and connect the leads to a 12 volt power supply. When it starts raining and water is flowing from the stormwater pipe, the cup fills with water. The pump inside the cup starts automatically and pumps water into a tank or wheelie bin. When it stops raining the pump stops automatically. The kit can be easily removed from the kerbside at any time.
Contents of the kit
· Polycarbonate cup with inlet filter, pump and float switch attached
· Control box connected to the pump and the float switch
· Second float switch
· Stormwater pipe adaptor 90mm x 75mm
· Stormwater pipe adaptor 90mm x 100mm
Councils attempt to draw water away through stormwater drains, however, in downpours even these can fill up and spill out onto the street flooding roads and residential areas. Your local council might require you to take some responsibility for your own property’s stormwater runoff. The Kerbside Stormwater Recycling Kit allows you detain some of the stormwater when it rains.
