Because New Zealanders now value water, the thought of being able to get it for free is far too good to pass up. And that’s why the new Marley Twist Water Diverter is already proving to be so popular.
The Marley Twist is a compact rainwater diverter that can help homeowners maintain a secondary source of water by essentially turning a single downpipe into a tap.
It quickly connects to a small collection tank via any standard hose fitting and is designed for tanks up to 1,000 litres. In constant moderate rainfall, the new Marley Twist water diverter can fill a 300-litre* tank in an hour.
Residential collection of free rainwater in smaller tanks is increasingly popular in New Zealand, particularly in urban residential areas. Once collected it can be used for a multitude of purposes around the home (see the graphic in the image gallery above for examples).
Maintaining an emergency supply of water is becoming increasingly important as natural disasters and infrastructure failures put pressure on normal water supplies.
In rural settings Twist can also be used to divert water to drinking troughs for animals close to the house or out buildings.
Available in six colours to match the Marley Stratus Design Series, Twist integrates easily into the Marley RP80 downpipe system and carries the same Marley 15-year guarantee.
