The UK's best-selling, award winning Diverter & Filter which makes it simple and easy to recycle rainwater straight from your downpipe into your water butt.

An easy way to help save money on your water bills by using recycled rainwater for all your garden needs ranging from watering your plants to cleaning your patios.

Both simple and effective, the Gutter Mate is great for collecting and recycling rainwater whether you're using a water butt at home or a water tank for a commercial unit. 

Why choose a Gutter Mate?

Unlike other diverters, the Gutter Mate is the only diverter that has a built-in filter which allows you to filter out leaves and debris before it enters the water butt, tank, drain or soakaway. This will help to reduce the chances of blocked drains or contaminated water butts.

Once the water butt is full, the diverter automatically shuts off the flow of water to the water butt and redirects it down the downpipe to the drain ensuring the water butt doesn't overflow.

Is the Gutter Mate suitable for me?

The Gutter Mate is designed to accept 68mm, 76mm and 80mm diameter round downpipes and 65mm and 75mm square downpipes, without any adaptors or reducers.

*Please know: This item will fit a 60mm downpipe, if the wall thickness is 1 1/2"mm or less, and 61mm if the wall thickness is 2mm or less.

Benefits of the Gutter Mate:

  • Easy way to recycle rainwater and save money on your water bills.
  • The built-in filter helps to protect your water butt or drainage system from blockages & damage.
  • Suitable for domestic and commercial gardens, lawns and greenhouses.
  • Rainwater for household appliances such as a washing machine or toilet.
  • It can be fitted and maintained at ground level - quick and easy to clean.
  • Remove the filter basket and clean in less than 30 seconds - no blockages.
  • Super-efficient collection. Once your waterbutt or tank is full, water is automatically diverted to flow down your downpipe as normal.

What's in the Box?

Each box contains:

  • Gutter Mate Diverter
  • Gutter Mate Filter Square to round adaptor for Square Downpipes
  • Blanking Cap for Diverter outlet
  • Hose Adaptor for Water Butt Screws and plugs for fitting Gutter mate to wall
  • 500mm of hose to connect Gutter Mate to water butt or tank. Additional sizes available

How to Install Your Gutter Mate

The Gutter Mate is supplied with the fixing screws and mounting bracket and there are 5 parts to the filter which are a slide fit into each other. 

The user has the choice of using the Diverter outlet ( the smaller of the 2) or the main outlet to divert the rainwater into a rainwater tub or rainwater harvesting tank.

If the degree of filtration is inadequate for the use you are putting the rainwater too, we have a Fine Mesh Insert available which fits into the filter basket and provides a far higher degree of filtration (800 micron). This will allow you to use the rainwater in your pressure washer and for washing the car.

If your guttering is attached to square downpipe, there is an adaptor in the box to allow the filter to be fitted to square drainpipes which are installed with close fitting brackets. If you have standard brackets, you will not need the adaptor.

This rainwater filter goes a long way to solving an age-old problem associated with guttering and drainpipe systems on buildings. The biggest problem with guttering is it gets filled with leaves, stones, sand and moss. The result can be blockages or overflowing gutters.

This in turn can lead to damp penetrating the wall of your building or damp getting to the roof joists. Gutter blockage and overflow can lead to extremely expensive repairs to your property. The other problem associated with blocked guttering and drainpipes is the inherent danger of inspecting and cleaning them. Use of ladders should be avoided at all times if there is an alternative, namely the Gutter Mate Filter.

Downpipe (Drainpipe) Sizes

The Gutter Mate is designed to accept 68mm, 76mm and 80mm diameter round downpipes and 65mm and 75mm square downpipes, without any adaptors or reducers, other than the square to round adaptor supplied with the filter, if needed as per the instructions. This adaptor is used if your square downpipe is fitted using "close fitting mounting brackets" to your house.

If the downpipe is fitted with "standoff mounting brackets", the square to round adaptor is not needed. If the downpipe is larger than 80mm you will need a male to female reducer to get into the top of the filter. The Gutter Mate filter should not be used on downpipes larger than 100mm diameter and if using this diameter of downpipe consideration should be given as to the total roof area the filter is rainwater collecting from. The Gutter Mate rainwater collecting filter can be used in the following applications.

Two common sizes of downpipe for Greenhouses, sheds and garages are 50 and 40mm diameter downpipes. In addition, there are some metal downpipe sizes where the internal diameter of the pipe is too small to accept the main outlet of the Gutter Mate.

The filter can be used on these downpipes, when using these sizes, a male female reducer will be needed for connection to the main outlet of the filter. The standard reducer available is 68mm female to 50mm, this can be used on either 40 or 50mm downpipe.
