When you have decided where the valves are to be installed, ensure you have the correct Tools, Adhesive, Wall or Post Brackets, Spray Paint, Plumbing Glue and Primer before you start working on your guttering. It's always easier to remove each downpipe and then refit them from the top down, installing the new EmberArresta valve in the desired position(s). Always allow for the depth of the valve body (top & bottom) when measuring the cuts to be made into the existing downpipe to allow valve installation and ensure you have Adaptors or Elbows to reset the downpipe at the correct height.
Retrofitting valves is an easy process, even if all your guttering and downpipes have been in place for years, or simply needs some repair or even an upgrade.
The purpose of Retrofitting EmberArresta Valves is to increase the level of protection of your family and home as well as reduce risk and improve overall safety during extreme adverse weather conditions experienced during Bush Fire and Ember Attack. Retrofitting valves is an easy process, even if all your guttering and downpipes have been in place for years, or simply needs some repair or even an upgrade.
Remember, approximately eighty percent or more of homes and dwellings caught in Bush Fires are lost due to Ember Attack.
