Keep Leaves Out of Your Gutters & Rain Harvesting System with Gutter Mesh
Cleaner rainwater & lots of it is easier to get when gutter mesh is involved
Installing gutter mesh is an effective first step in limiting potential contaminants that may otherwise end up in your rainwater tank.
The mesh forms a physical barrier over your gutters that keeps leaves, pests and other debris out, while still letting rainwater in.
This not only helps you to harvest cleaner rainwater – it also helps maximise the volume you can harvest, and protects your post-tank pumps by reducing the volume of sediment in your rainwater tank.
Leaves, vegetation and pests can all clog your gutters and downpipes, reducing the volume of rainwater that ends up in your tank.
Urine, faeces or carcasses from pests can compromise your water’s opacity, colour and odour – as can leaves and vegetation.
Gutters clogged with leaves or pest detritus can also lead to pooled water that attracts the smallest pests of all, mosquitoes. These pests can seriously affect the health of your entire Rain Harvesting system (and your home, too).
