Leaf Catcher Filter

The Leaf Catcher from 3P Technik is excellent at separating out leaves, twigs and moss clumps from the rainwater going to the downpipe. It collects the debris in a small basket. It helps stop leaves blocking drains and prevent gulleys from being blocked too.

Leaf Catcher is intended as an alternative to "balloon guards" or "hedgehog guards" at gutter level, but because the Leaf Catcher is installed at any point on the downpipe, it saves on awkward high level maintenance, or unblocking things at ground level.

It can be installed at any height but at a convenient height to suit the owner/operator without the need to use a ladder or steps. The downpipe simply hangs into the Catcher basket, clipping onto the basket's pre-cut positions. 

This Leaf Guard fits square downpipes 65mm (using supplied adaptor) and round downpipes 68mm, 80mm, 90mm and 100mm. Available in four colours (black, grey, white and brown) to suit your guttering. For square downpipes, the unit fits into the downpipe, there will be gaps around the downpipe corners, but the water flows perfectly well into the downpipe.

This is not a formal filter for rainwater harvesting systems. If a filter is required instead, or in conjunction with, then do have a look at the superb 3P Filter Collector with Universal Link Kit or the 3P Rainus Filter.
