Leaf Eater Advanced
The Leaf Eater Ultra has a cover plate / shield over the screen.
The Leaf Eater Ultra has less water spalshing out due to the design of the
hinged cover plate and raised finger like projections. These projections keep
the large debris from settling on the face of the screen.
The above image is a typical Leaf Eater Downspout Fliter installation. Note that
the downspout / downpipe is cut off to allow the debris to fall onto the screen.
All open faced downspout filters will have 'splash factor'. In other words some
of the rain will hit the screen and splash out.
Inflow / Top Connection
The both the top of the cover plate of the Ultra and the top of the Advanced
is designed to accept the four most common sizes of downpipe:
2"x3" and/or 3"x4" rectangulars, and 3" and/or 4" rounds.

Outflow / Bottom Connection
While the top inlet of the Leaf Eater downspout filters can accommodate a
variety of sizes, the bottom outlet of these two downspout filters are
designed to connect into either a 3" or 4" diameter Schedule 40 PVC downpipe.
If you have 2x3 or 3"x4" downspout downpipe, the Leaf Eater
will come with an bottom outlet adapter that will fit either size.
The outflow port can be optionally be directed down or perpendicular to the
