THE ORIGINAL HIGH PERFORMANCE RAIN HEAD – NOW WITH ENHANCED PERFORMANCE

The Leaf Eater® Original with Clean Shield™ not only protects the home by
preventing gutters from blocking and flooding eaves, but it also improves water quality and reduces tank maintenance. The Leaf Eater® Original with Clean Shield™ is ideal for use purely as a debris removing device even when rainwater is not being collected. The single screen incorporates Clean Shield™ technology which deflects leaves and debris away from the flow of water. This minimises maintenance and enhances catchment efficiency.

Features and Benefits

  • Upgraded with new debris shedding single screen technology (Clean Shield™)
  • Minimal maintenance
  • Enhanced flow rate capacity
  • Superior catchment efficiency at low and high flow rates
  • A single mosquito proof stainless steel mesh screen with 0.955mm aperture
  • Available in 90mm or 100mm outlets

Installation Instructions

At Gutter Installation

1.  Remove the existing Gutter Outlet from the roof guttering system.
2.  Hold the new Gutter Outlet against the fascia and against the bottom
and rear of the gutter where the new outlet hole is to be, then using
the gutter outlet as a template, draw around the inside of the outlet
to mark the underside of the gutter for the new hole and cut out with
tin snips. Fit the gutter outlet to the gutter, secure it using pop rivets
or screws. Place a small amount of sealant in the sealant groove.
3.  Mount the main body of the Rain Head evenly under the gutter outlet
by securing it to the fascia with pop rivets or screws, making sure the
backing plate fits snugly up to the bottom edge of the gutter but NOT
between the fascia and back edge of the gutter.
4.  The Leaf Eater® Original is now ready for connection to the
downpipe. Do NOT glue the Leaf Eater® Original to the downpipe.
SECURE with a screw for easy replacement.

Mid-Mount Installation

To improve access for cleaning, Leaf Eater® Original Rain Heads can be mounted on a wall at a convenient height. When ‘pushing water’ over long runs and depending on the volume of water required to be moved, the Rain Head may need to be mid-mounted more than 1.2m above the discharge point.

It is important to note that when mid-mounting, the flow directional benefits of the rectangular gutter outlet supplied with the Leaf Eater® Original will be lost. However this is to be balanced with the benefits gained from easier access for maintenance.

For mid-mounting, discard the top flow-directional gutter outlet. Cut the entry downpipe at 45˚ allowing 50mm clearance between the pipe and the mozzie screen. This ensures the end of the pipe is parallel to the screen and helps direct the water onto the face of the screen most effectively.
