The Hood Upgrade ensures your rain heads are capturing the most water from your downpipes. An added benefit of The Hood is that it also minimizes splashing that might occur on a leaf-shedding rain head. This can be particularly useful if your rain heads are located above walkways, patios, or other high traffic areas.
The Hood Upgrade is designed to fit straight onto your existing Leaf Eater Advanced rain head without the need for fasteners.
Maintenance is as simple as lifting the Hood cover up your inlet pipe, then brushing or washing the debris away from the screen.
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.
Remove and discard your Leaf Eater Advanced screen.
Attach The Hood screen to the Leaf Eater Advanced body, making sure the screen is fully seated all the way around and flush with the body.
Ensure your inlet pipe is cut to sit at least 20mm below the top surface of The Hood cover.
If your inlet pipe is 100mm or 4”, you will need to cut away the multi fit inlet so your inlet pipe can fit inside.
Slide the cover up your inlet pipe and fit to the screen, making sure that the skirt around the edge is fully seated in the corresponding channel on the screen.
Slide The Hood cover up your inlet pipe and remove The Hood screen.
With the screen removed, either brush off or wash the debris from the screen.
Reinsert the screen to the Leaf eater Advanced body, making sure the screen is fully seated all the way around and flush with the body.
Reinstall the cover, making sure that the skirt around the edge is fully seated in the corresponding channel on the screen.
