Leaf Catcher - Downpipe Leaf Trap

Product Description

Leaf Guard for Square or Round Downpipes

This Leaf Catcher from 3P Technik traps leaves and other debris that have travelled down your downpipe before they enter your waterbutt or drainage system. It comes complete with adapters to suit 65mm square downpipes and 68mm, 80mm and 100mm round downpipes (not shown in images).

The downpipe leaf trap is easily installed at a height convenient for leaf removal from time to time - no more standing on ladders to reach the guttering. It collects leaves, moss, twigs and other debris in a small basket.

This device is popular where people want to filter out leaves, moss, twigs and other larger particles before underground pipework, drains to guard against blockages. Can also be installed before waterbutts that are fed from directly into the top of the water butt from the downpipe (like the Wall Mounted Waterbutt), so that sludge doesn't build up at the bottom of the water storage tank.

Once cut, the downpipe simply hangs into the Catcher basket, clipping onto the basket's pre-cut positions.

Note: The adaptor it is round not square. When using with a square downpipe, the round adaptor simply slots into your square downpipe, there will be gaps in the corners, but that will not effect the water flowing into the downpipe.

  1. The best option 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Jul 2021

    I have bought and experimented with practically all available solutions for avoiding blocked gutters, both gutter level and downpipe separators. The gutter level ones still get blocked sooner or later and make it more difficult to clean them. This is easy to install and collects most of the debris, once you have ensured a free flow at roof level. Depending on how good a slope there is your gutter may silt up again eventually but much slower as the debris will have washed down to the leafguard. You can happily install it over a water butt diverter though you may not be able to see so easily when it is full.

  2. Top product 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Jul 2021

    We’ve got a problem with moss coming down downpipe and entering soakaway so bought the leaf catcher and it was easy to fit onto downpipe it took about 15 minutes including putting a new wall bracket onto wall which I suggest you purchase before fitting, the leaf catcher is on the front of the house and it doesn’t look stupid or out of place and 24hrs after fitting we had rain and there was moss in it which would of ended up in the soakaway, this is a strong we’ll made item and would highly recommend and I just wished I’d fitted it sooner, wish they made one in white as I want one for the conservatory on back of house.

  3. Great item 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th Jun 2021

    Having a soakaway and moss on the tiles I going down into it I bought the leaf catcher thinking it was worth a try but it’s excellent easy to fit and strongly made and it catches everything except water going down into soakaway I purchased a new wall clip before fitting but to do the hole job including cutting downpipe took 20 mins can’t recommend highly enough and it isn’t to big to make it look hideous on the front of the house

  4. Good product 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th Jun 2021

    Fits easily with 68mm downpipe thanks to the adapter supplied. Ideal for collecting leaves off a 12sq m lean-to roof.

  5. Good leaf catcher 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th May 2021

    Works very well caught all debris and rubbish from gutters
    I did have gutter guards that did not work just block up but these are much better as there are at a low level so don't need ladders to clean them, delivery was very quick.

    This product appears to work efficiently, but it has only beeen installed 6 days.

  7. Leaf catcher down pipe trap 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Mar 2021

    Just the thing to stop. Me having to get a ladder out to clear a high trap. Works really well and have it at ground level to make clearing trap trivial.

  8. This will stop an older person having to get up ladders in a howling gale to unblock gutters 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th Feb 2021

    What can I say, these are great. As a retired person with a back problem getting up ladders at the most inconvenient times, torrential rain and a howling gale, was a bit of an issue. These leaf traps mean that I can discard all those traps up at the roof line that end up blocking the gutters with leaves and needed me to get the ladders out. So there we go, so far so good as now I have done all the house. Make sure you put extra downpipe clips to hold all the assembly together though.

  9. Does the job well 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 1st Dec 2020

    Catches the moss and leaves while still allowing the flow.
    Good prompt delivery too.

  10. Just what I needed 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th Nov 2020

    After trying various ways of dealing with leaf-fall in one part of the gutters around my garage, I now have the perfect solution. This trap allows the leaves to wash down and be collected every 2-3 days. Saves me getting out my step-ladder to do the same at the top of the down-pipe, Other designs are out there but seem to be more expensive. Excellent build quality and clever design.
