Description

Leaf Eater Ultra

The Leaf Eater Ultra™ is the next generation Rain Head, featuring the new Hydro Activated Filtration technology and VH Pivot™ outlet. The Leaf Eater Ultra™ Rain Head prevents debris from entering the Rain Harvesting system, improves water quality and reduces tank/cistern maintenance. The Leaf Eater Ultra™ uses the Leaf Slide which deflects debris away from the screen and a precisely angled screen which directs leaves and debris away from the flow of water to maximise catchment efficiency. This Rain Head also incorporates a VH Pivot™ outlet that swivels to suit vertical or horizontal downspouts. The Leaf Eater Ultra™ can also be used as a debris removing device even when rainwater is not being collected.
