THE NEXT GENERATION IN RAIN HEADS

The Leaf Eater Advanced™ is the next generation Rain Head, featuring the new Clean Shield™ (single screen) technology and VH Pivot™ outlet. The Leaf Eater Advanced™ Rain Head prevents debris from entering the Rain Harvesting system, improves water quality and reduces tank/cistern maintenance.

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. This Rain Head incorporates a VH Pivot™ outlet that swivels to suit vertical or horizontal downspouts. The Leaf Eater Advanced™ can also be used as a debris removing device even when rainwater is not being collected.
