1. Remove the existing Gutter Outlet from the roof guttering system.
2. Hold the new Gutter Outlet against the fascia and against the bottom
and rear of the gutter where the new outlet hole is to be. Use the
Gutter Outlet as a template, draw around the inside of the outlet to
mark the underside of the gutter for the new hole and cut out with tin
snips. Refit the Gutter Outlet to the main body and place a small
amount of sealant in the sealant groove.
3. Mount the main body of the Leaf Eater Original evenly under the
Gutter Outlet by securing it to the fascia with pop rivets or screws,
making sure the backing plate fits snug up to the bottom edge of the
gutter but NOT between the fascia and back edge of the gutter.
4. Place the Mozzie Screen in the main body over the Leaf Eater
Original outlet ensuring that the screen clips into place. Replace the
primary screen, making sure the screen fits INSIDE the front lip of the
Leaf Eater Original and secure in place with the clips provided. The
Leaf Eater Original is now ready for connection to the downspout. DO
NOT glue the Leaf Eater Original to the downspout. SECURE with a
screw for easy removal.Mid-Mount Installation
To improve access for cleaning, Leaf Eater Original Rain Heads can be mounted on a wall at a convenient height. When pushing water over long runs and depending on the volume of water required to be moved, the Rain Head may need to be mid-mounted more than 4 feet above the discharge point.
It is important to note that when mid-mounting, the flow directional benefits of the rectangular gutter outlet supplied with the Leaf Eater Original will be lost. However this is to be balanced with the benefits gained from easier access for maintenance.
For mid-mounting, discard the top flow-directional gutter outlet. Cut the entry downspout at 45 degrees allowing 2" clearance between the pipe and the primary screen. This ensures the end of the pipe is parallel to the screen and helps direct the water onto the face of the screen most effectively.
