Gutter Protection and the Environment

Install Leafbusters gutter protection to stop leaf debris getting into the gutters. Save maintenance costs & make gutters last longer… You reduce the tannin water getting into our waterways…

Studies have suggested that our water ways are being poisoned by the reduced levels of oxygen in the water. This is partly caused by a toxin called tannin. Produced by decomposing leaves trapped in gutters. Tannin has been known to kill vegetation and fish and increase PH levels in our river systems, contributing to blue-green algae blooms.

The Leafbusters gutter protection system will dramatically reduce the environmental damage by keeping your gutters free from leaves and debris. Leafbusters products have a service life of approx. 25 years, therefore reducing the impact to landfill by products with minimal life spans that are quickly thrown away.

The other important “Green Factor” for Leafbusters is that it insists that all the waste materials it removes are recycled. Leafbusters, as a gutter protector, then ensures that it does not adversely impact the environment by its products, meshes, metal attachments or other products it removes from people’s homes or buildings.

Established in 1992, Leafbusters has a long history of servicing the Australian home owner, government buildings, commercial, industrial and Sustainable Environmental test houses for sustainable living. Leafbusters 2G mesh gutter protector (also known as Triple-G) was even installed on the Sustainable Living House at the Cares Project in Brunswick East. This was part of the CERES project, Yarra Valley Water managed the testing from water collected in a rainwater tank.

A number of suppliers contributed equipment to this project, including Leafbusters. Leafbusters was a supporter of the former Savewater! ® project, with all its products listed on the Savewater! ® product library.
