3P Rainwater Filter Collector Universal
3P Technik make high quality rainwater harvesting accessories, and this is a great addition to their range of products. It is a downpipe diverter which thoroughly filters the water which passes through it. This will ensure that the water in your water butt is as pure as possible.
Like all diverters once the water butt is full, the diverter acts an overflow outlet maintaining the top water level in the tank and preventing an overflow at the lid.
Ideal for Water Butts.
This 3P filter collector has a high yield whilst excluding leaves and detritus. This will prevent sludge from building up in your water butt, which in turn will halt the growth of algae. Without sludge, you also don't have to worry about breakages occurring when you pump your water. The body of the diverter is made from high quality durable plastic, whilst the filter mesh itself is made from stainless steel.
This 3P filter collector universal fits UK round downpipes from 68 mm to 110 mm, and all square downpipes from 65 mm to 75 mm. Socket fit on exit to provide leak free seal. Loose fit on entry to allow flexibility of installation. The outlet adapter can be attached to pipes or hoses which are 75 mm (3 inches), 50 mm (2 inches) or 32 mm (1¼ inches). A ~30cm hose (1¼ inches) is included with the diverter.
- Hose to connect to a remote water butt
- Tank connector comprising backnut, washer, hosetail and jubilee clip
- Drill bit to drill tank, water butt or IBC to receive tank connector
- For a higher flow capacity outlet consider the Freeflush high flow diverter - tank linking kit to maximise the potential of the diverter.
- Use a 32/50mm grommet connection kit with holesaw for closed tanks where the supplied backnut for the tank connector can not be fitted internally
- Additional 32mm linking hose can be purchased here, select the diameter and length required

I am very pleased with this collector/ filter. It is sturdy and well manufactured and looks like it will last for years. It works very efficiently and collects the water from the side walls of the down pipe as well as the centre. Thanks for the advice.
I have purchased two of the 3P Filters. Only installed one at present using Standard 32mm plumbing fittings. It is a splendid product although depending on your setup you may have to experiment a little with connection methods to the water storage container. I found the people at Freeflush to be most helpful with any questions I had. Excellent communications, top class outfit.
We have rain water feeding our y toilet cistern for flushing and occasionally the float valve would block with tiny debris. That problem has stopped entirely - 6 months on. I'd like to give 4.5* lol
