Downpipe FS-65mm
Description

The FS-65 downpipe provides the finishing touch to any quality rainwater installation. Part of Continuous Group's Form Series, the FS-65 is a roll-formed lock seamed downpipe. This product can be used for water collection, but can not be used where water tank head height is higher than top of drain. Customers can use Ezi-Flo Series downpipe where a charged/sealed system is required.

Downpipe capacity, both in size and number, determine the effectiveness of any rainwater system. Downpipes should be distributed evenly around the rainwater system and their design and specification should allow for maximum rainfall situations.

All Continuous bends are uniquely designed with male and female ends so as to allow the most efficient flow of water. A typical bend is at 95°, but can be hand made to differing angles where required.

FS-65 downpipe can be run in Magnaflow and Copper.
