5 of 5 Works Great! September 5, 2020
Reviewer: Randall H from Boone , NC United States  
I recently installed one of the Leaf Eaters during a French drain project. It worked great. I recommend installing it close to ground level as I find myself cleaning it after every downpour.
Well worth the money.
