The Leaf Eater® is the ultimate high performance rain head for use in heavy rainfall areas. Not only does it protect the home by preventing gutters from blocking and flooding of eaves, the Leaf Eater® also improves water quality and reduces tank maintenance
Leaves and debris that build up in gutters can be flammable and represent a significant fire risk. By screening leaves onto the ground, the Leaf Eater® prevents gutters from blocking and eliminates a fire hazard. A secondary stainless steel screen is included to keep mosquitoes and vermin out of downpipes in a “wet” system. With the removal of the secondary screen, the Leaf Eater® is ideal for use purely as a debris removing device even when rainwater is not being collected.
The Leaf Eater® is usually mounted directly under the roof gutter. A 17cm x 7.5cm rectangular gutter outlet comes with each rain head and provides an increased flow of water that is directed onto the angled primary screen.
The Leaf Eater® can also be mid-mounted on a wall at a convenient height to make it easier to access for cleaning. When mid-mounting, the gutter outlet is discarded and the entry downpipe is cut at 45°, allowing 5cm clearance between the pipe and the primary screen.
The main body of the all rain heads manufactured by Rain Harvesting Pty Ltd are made from lead-free PVC and can be painted to color match and complement the home. For best results wash down with methylated/white spirit and spray paint the desired color.
