The all new Australian designed and Manufactured gutter, uses BlueScope Zincalume or Colorbond steel, and enables you to collect up to 100% of the rain off your tank roof without compromising the capacity of your tank. Instead of all the precious rain water that lands on your Heritage Tank going to waste, you can now harvest this resource directly into your tank.

HOW DOES IT WORK?
With the gutter system fitted to your tank all the rain that lands on the tank roof is directly diverted into your tank via the all new patented gutter system.
The circular tank gutter system can be optionally fitted onto your Heritage Water Tank when your new tank is installed. The gutter can also be fitted to all existing steel tanks with a profiled roof. This can be done easily D.I.Y, or by a plumber or tank installer.
GUTTER CATCHMENT CHART
As you are harvesting the total rain fall from the tank roof, you will fill the tank by that amount of rainfall. i.e. if 20mm of rain falls, the tank will fill by 20mm.
An example of a 100,000 litre tank (7.8m diameter). In a rainfall area of 750mm per year, you will collect an extra 35,000 litres. This can equate to three tank loads of water per year. The alternative is to buy this commercially with a potential cost in excess of $1000 per year. This would amount more than the one-off cost of purchasing the gutter system itself.
GUTTER GUARD (OPTIONAL EXTRA)
The new Gutter Technology System can be supplied with an optional extra leaf guard, which is available for people who require their tank to have gutters, but have installed their tank under or near trees. Gutter Guard is an Aluminium Mesh designed to cover the tank from the corrugation and over the gutter system. All water must pass through the mesh to be able to enter the tank. Not only will the Gutter Guard help stop leaf matter from entering the tank, it also ‘vermin proof’, making it one of the best options available in the tank market.
