Downspout Filter and Diverter
Protect your rain barrel with the Aquabarrel Sentry(TM) downspout filter and diverter.
No other downspout diverter filters large debris as well or as simply as the Aquabarrel Sentry(TM).
No more flipping levers or having to remember what position the downspout diverter is in!
This Aquabarrel Sentry(TM) diverter and filter unit does both functions in one device.
The top section is a large, removable, lift out, easy maintenance, filter basket. Since you are placing the Sentry(TM) at the level of the barrel the filter basket and diverter are located in a much easier location to reach.
The mesh screen inside reduces the volume of large debris from getting any further down the downspout. Why would you want debris to continue down the downspout? It is only going to clog the downspout at some point. If you have an underground drainage system you'd have to find a way to get the debris out. That's an expensive and time–consuming job.
The bottom half consists of a shallow reservoir and overflow port. This combination directs some of the rain water into the hose headed out to your barrel and when the rain barrel barrel is full or it is raining too hard, the reservoir For the Sentry(TM) to work properly you MUST make sure that the hose from the Sentry(TM) to the container is perfectly LEVEL! If the Sentry's(TM) water outlet hole is placed too far below the entry point on the rain barrel NOTHING will happen. Water does not run uphill. If you place the Sentry(TM) to high the water will overflow the barrel and never back up into the hose so it can run down the inside of the downspout.
