Filter Media, Winter Cover Plates and Accessories for the SlimLine Downspout Drain Guard Filter
Tired of clogged underground landscape pipes or damaged mesh filters on the top of your rain barrel?
Keep leaves and other large debris from entering or landing on the top of your rain barrel and clogging up your fine screen mesh with an Aquabarrel Slim Line Downspout Filter.
Features and Benefits:
Do your downspouts empty into a landscape pipe or underground drain? Here is a simple solution to collect leaves and large debris and keep them from clogging your underground drainage pipes. Aquabarrel® downspout filters have 1/8" diameter holes allow for rain water to flow through while trapping larger downspout clogging leaves and debris. The additioinal filter material can be inserted to reduce noise and capture smaller particles.
Are the sticks and leaves exiting the downspout damaging your rain barrel screens? Use a downspout filter to collect the large debris before it can get to your rain barrel and destroy your rain barrel screens. Aquabarrel® and EarthMinded® rain barrels benefit from having this downspout filter in place to minimize debris entering the rain barrel.
Clean as often as necessary to minimize build up and clogging.
