Sustainability expert Warren McLaren has highlighted The
Leaf Eater Advanced from Rain Harvesting as a feature in his recent green
building retrofit project.
After more than a decade of scrutinising and writing about
environmentally sustainable design and building products for Infolink and BPN
magazines, McLaren bravely turned the microscope on his own retrofit project to
reveal his products of choice.
Mclaren used the Leaf Eater Advanced in the build for the
filtration of rainwater which he in turn used variedly around the house to
create a more sustainable and environmentally friendly home.
“Rain Harvesting’s Advanced Leaf Eaters filter out gutter
debris as precipitation is diverted to our 27,000 litre rainwater tank, and a
Davey RainBank pumps rainwater from the tank to our Bosch front-load washing
machine, laundry, toilet and yard taps irrigating our nine veggie beds and 30
fruit and nut trees,” he said.
Rain Harvesting says the Leaf Eater Advanced™ is the next
generation Rain Head, featuring the new patented Clean Shield™ (single screen)
technology and VH Pivot™ outlet.
The Leaf Eater Advanced™ Rain Head prevents debris from
entering the Rain Harvesting system, improves water quality and reduces tank
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 incorporates a VH Pivot™ outlet that swivels to suit
vertical or horizontal downpipes.
The Leaf Eater
Advanced™ can also be used as a debris removing device even when rainwater is
not being collected.
