Leaf Beater® with Clean Shield™ and VH Pivot™

The Leaf Beater® with Clean Shield™ and VH Pivot™ is a practical and versatile Rain Head, featuring the patented Clean Shield™ (single screen) and VH Pivot™ technology. The Leaf Beater® Rain Head prevents debris from entering the Rain Harvesting system, improves water quality and reduces tank maintenance. The single screen incorporates Clean Shield™ technology which deflects leaves and debris away from the flow of water. This minimizes maintenance and enhances catchment efficiency. This Rain Head also incorporates a VH Pivot™ outlet that swivels to suit vertical or horizontal downspouts.

  • Patented single screen technology for advanced debris shedding (Clean Shield™)
  • Enhanced catchment efficiency – collect more rainwater
  • Minimal maintenance
  • Higher flow rate performance
  • Compact design suits smaller spaces
  • A single mosquito proof stainless steel mesh screen with 0.955mm aperture
  • Pivot the outlet to suit vertical or horizontal (rear outlet) downspouts – variety of installation options in one product

 

Installation Instructions:

 

Gutter / Mid Mount Installation:

(This procedure presumes you have round downspouts installed already. Typically, the rectangular downspout from the bottom of the Leaf Beater to the tank and/or first flush system will be replaced with round PVC to allow a watertight connection.)

  1. Gutter Mount: Measure 10 inches from the bottom of the existing gutter opening and remove this section of downspout. Ensure the cut edge is clean and smooth. Mid-Mount: Remove 10 inches of downspout where the Leaf Beater® is to be situated. Ensure all cut edges are clean and smooth.
  2. Remove the Clean Shield™ screen #2 while fitting the Leaf Beater®. Simply lift the Clean Shield™ screen out (figure 1) by taking hold of the quick release tabs (red) and pull them outwards and upwards.
  3. Insert the Leaf Beater® by sliding it up over the cut section of pipe and then down into position. The Leaf Beater® outlet should be slid firmly onto the bottom downspout until it can be pushed no further.
  4. Fasten the unit to the fascia or wall with two rivets or screws through the back of the body #1 and into the fascia or wall.
  5. Insert the Clean Shield™ screen #2 into the rain head at approx 45 degrees (figure 2) until the front rubber channel is nearly over the front lip of the body. TIP: Wetting the rubber seal will help the screen slide into place.
  6. Affix the front of the Clean Shield™ screen #2 into place (figure 3) by sliding the rubber channel (red) over the front lip (green) of the body.
  7. Reaching towards the back of the screen push down on the plastic frame (figure 4) so that the rear edge (red) of the screen comes to rest on the body of the rain head.
  8. The Leaf Beater® is now ready for connection to the downspout. Do NOT glue the Leaf Beater® to the downspout. SECURE with a screw for easy replacement.

Horizontal (Rear Outlet) Installation:

  1. Lift the Clean Shield™ (figure 1) screen out by taking hold of the quick release tabs (red) and pull them outwards and upwards.
  2. Swivel the outlet to the horizontal position – some force may be required.
  3. Position the Leaf Beater® next to existing pipework, mark and cut top and bottom cut lines as per (figure 5). Ensure the cut edge is clean and smooth.
  4. Insert the Leaf Beater® by gluing the rear outlet into the horizontal pipe. The rear wall of Leaf Beater® body #1 must sit behind the top section of downspout or gutter outlet.
  5. Fasten the Leaf Beater® to the fascia or wall with two rivets or screws through the back of the body #1 into the fascia or wall.
  6. Insert the Clean Shield™ screen #2 into the rain head at approx. 45 degrees (figure 2) until the front rubber channel is nearly over the front lip of the body. TIP: Wetting the rubber seal will help the screen slide into place.
  7. Fix the front of the Clean Shield™ screen #2 into place (figure 3) by sliding the rubber channel (red) over the front lip (green) of the body.
  8. Reaching towards the back of the screen push down on the plastic frame (figure 4) so that the rear edge (red) of the screen comes to rest on the body of the rain head.
