The Maelstrom (RHML01) by Blue Mountain Co, also known as Rain Harvesting, is an innovative pre-tank rainwater filter that combines super-fine filtration and super-high water catchment efficiency to give you cleaner rainwater and more of it.
Features and Benefits
- Cleaner water harvested – Maelstrom ultra-fine secondary filter removes particles down to 180 microns – 5 times finer than standard rain heads, tank screens and pre-tank filters. This gives you cleaner, better quality water and lowers the volume of sediment putting pressure on your tank pumps and post-tank filters
- Harvests high-flowing, fast water – Maelstrom eliminates the problem of water splashing off your tank inlet screen, especially at high flow rates. Its phenomenal water catchment efficiency of 36,000 litres per hour at 96% efficiency (which equates to 10 litres per second) gives you more water, faster, so you can take full advantage of every raindrop.
- Efficient rainwater harvesting – Efficiently filtering multiple lines at a single point is a simple way to keep tanks filled to the max.
How the Maelstrom Rainwater Filter Works
Maelstrom cleans rainwater through three-stages of filtration:
- The Primary Filter features a 2mm aperture to filter out leaves and large debris.
- The Secondary Filter features a 180 micron fine filter sleeve that stops the finer particles.
- The final 0.955mm Mosquito Proof Screen screen prevents mosquitoes from entering the tank.
