Features an integrated flow directional gutter outlet which directs the flow of water from the gutters onto an adjustable elliptical primary screen of 7/32" aperture.
The primary screen is virtually vertical enabling the action of the water to wash the screen and minimize maintenance. A secondary stainless steel screen is also included to keep mosquitoes and vermin out of downpipes. With the removal of the secondary screen, the Leaf Beater is ideal for use purely as a debris removing device even when rainwater is not being collected.
How it Works:
An ingenious feature has been incorporated into the operation of the primary screen. Four settings can be applied to vary the angle at which the elliptical primary screen faces to adjust for various intensities of rainfall and amounts of debris. After observing the performance of the Leaf Beater®, the screen can be adjusted until the best operating setting is achieved.
The Leaf Beater® is usually mounted directly under the roof gutter, however it can be mid-mounted on a wall to make it easier to access for cleaning.
The Leaf Beater® range includes four variants and connects with PVC and metal downpipes:
1. For rectangular downpipes – 2" x 3" or 3" x 4".
2. For round downpipes – 3" and 4" round.
