Upgrade your existing rain heads

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.

Get more water

By directing leaves and debris away from the flow of water and off your rain head so they don’t enter your downpipes, the Clean Shield™ Screen increases your rainwater flow rate and boosts the volume of water you collect.

Rain Heads filter leaves and debris out of your downpipes with their 955 micron screens. They also minimise splashing to increase the volume of rainwater you harvest.

Rain Heads secure the system with the 955 micron mosquito-proof screens that prevent insects and other animals from entering and breeding or living in your downpipes.

  • Specifications

  • Installation
    1. 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.)
    2. Ensure that your rain head is free from leaves and debris.
    3. Take your Clean Shield™ screen and fit it into the front of your Leaf Eater Original/Plus.
    4. 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.
  • Maintenance

    Your new Clean Shield™ screen requires minimal maintenance as it is mostly self-cleaning. If cleaning is required, simply remove the Clean Shield™ screen by lifting the quick release tabs, hose or brush it off, then replace it inside your Leaf Eater Original/Plus or Leaf Beater rain head.

  • Product FAQs

    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.
