Downpipe FS-75x55
Description

Continuous Group FS-75x55 downpipe provides a stylish rectangular shape to a residential home's downpipes, that can be colour matched to the spouting. This product can be used for water collection, but can not be used where water tank head height is higher than top of drain. Use Ezi-Flo Series downpipes where a charged/sealed system are 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 Group's 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 if required. 

FS-75x55 can be manufactured in Magnaflow and Copper.
