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 minimises maintenance and enhances catchment efficiency. This Rain Head also incorporates a VH Pivot™ outlet that swivels to suit vertical or horizontal downpipes.

Installation Instructions

Gutter / Mid Mount Installation

1. Gutter: Measure 255mm from the bottom of the existing gutter pop
and remove this section of downpipe. Ensure the cut edge is clean and
smooth. Mid-Mount: Remove 255mm of downpipe where the Leaf
Beater® is to be situated. Ensure all cut edges are clean and smooth.
2. Remove the Clean Shield™ screen #2 whilst 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 downpipe 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. 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.
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 downpipe. Do
NOT glue the Leaf Beater® to the downpipe. 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 downpipe or gutter pop.
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.

front lip of the body. TIP: Wetting the rubber seal will help the screen
slide into place.
