FloGard +Plus® Downspout Filter
The FloGard Downspout Filter is a building-mounted downspout filter that removes non-soluble pollutants such as gross solids, trash and debris from rooftop stormwater runoff. The filter is adaptable to various architectural applications, and is an ideal solution for ultra-urban sites like downtown commercial buildings and parking decks with little-to-no property area outside the building perimeter for a conventional underground stormwater Best Management Practice (BMP). The FloGard Downspout Filter fits most standard downspouts, providing physical screening of pollutants using a collection basket with a fabric liner. Available in a number of sizes, the FloGard Downspout Filter is installed inline with the downspout pipe, and is typically recessed into the wall for a flush appearance or mounted directly to the wall surface. As with any stormwater treatment system, the FloGard Downspout Filter requires regular maintenance to prolong the life of the system. Routine maintenance is accomplished by removing accumulated pollutants from the collection basket by hand. Frequency of maintenance depends on the conditions of the site and performance of the system. The FloGard Downspout Filter has been certified by the International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO) for inline filtration of stormwater runoff on building downspouts. The FloGard Downspout Filter complies with the Uniform Plumbing Code and International Plumbing Code.
