Clean Shield Screen – Leaf Eater Original
Upgrade your Leaf Eater Original or Leaf Eater Plus with this mosquito-proof screen for improved leaf-shedding and easier maintenance.
The Clean Shield™ Screen is a recommended upgrade for all our Leaf Eater Original and Plus rain heads. Its improved leaf-shedding power makes it easier to maintain as most leaves and debris are automatically shed.
- Remove and discard both the primary and secondary screen from your Leaf Eater Original/ Plus rain head. (You won’t need either of them anymore.)
- Ensure that your rain head is free from leaves and debris.
- Take your Clean Shield™ screen and fit it into the front of your Leaf Eater Original/Plus.
- Push down on the screen’s front and rear quick release tabs until it’s firmly in place, ensuring a tight fit within your rain head’s body.
Can I upgrade my Leaf Eater Original or older Leaf Beater with the new patented screen technology?
Yes. Upgrade screens are available for both new and old Leaf Eater and Leaf Beater rain heads. The patented Clean Shield Screens keeps leaves, debris, mosquitos and larger pests out of your pipes – no second screen required.
Can I paint my Leaf Eater rain head?
Yes. All the rain heads in our Leaf Eater range can be painted to match your home or building. Check with your local paint retailer to ensure you select a product that’s suitable for use with plastic.
Will my Leaf Eater rain head splash water into my covered patio area?
Rain heads with an open “face” have an angled, self-cleaning screen designed to minimise splashing as leaves and debris are deflected away from the flow of water. This applies to all our rain heads that feature our Clean Shield screens, as well as the Leaf Eater Original.
If you are still concerned about splashing, consider choosing a rain head with an anti-splash cover such as the Leaf Eater Slimline or Leaf Eater Ultra.
