What is a Leaf Eater?

Leaf Eater Rain Heads

Leaf Eaters are a type of rain head used to filter contaminants out of the downpipes leading to your rainwater tank. These rain heads will not only filter leaves but also finer debris, mosquitoes/insects and other pests. This improves your water quality as well as prevents clogging/blockages in your rainwater pipework.

    Hi; I have just bought 2 Leaf Eater Advanced with the swivel outlet. Question: how exactly do you change the position from vertical to horizontal. Can you send me some instructions please ?
