One of the easiest and efficient way of water conservation to solve drinking water scarcity is rooftop water harvesting. However, the technology has some limitations with regard to its purification system. The commonly used sand and gravel filter is very prone to clogging and its cleaning is not an easy job. At the same time, the alternative upward flow mesh filter needs further improvement in cleaning efficiency and some hassle free drain cum back washing mechanism. In upward flow mesh filter system, which creates anaerobic condition will give foul smell. For avoiding anaerobic condition an automatic cleaning mechanism for roof water harvesting has been developed. The automatic cleaning mechanism was giving 92 % removal of the filtered out impurities from the filter system. Further, the automatic flushing unit was draining the upward flow mesh filter unit completely avoiding all possibilities of any anaerobic decomposition. It can be concluded that the automatic flushing unit was a success in improving the performance of the upward flow filter system.
