Leaffilter North - Clogged Leaf Filter screens
Installed (Redmond, Washington 98053) a total Leaf Filter gutter system on 9/14/10 and received a life time warranty. The first year of use and thereafter I experienced the following issues:
1. Filter screen became clogged and did not allow water into gutter.
2. Pine needles and maples leaves did not blow off when days became windy versus company's advertisement claim.
3. Replacement screens (larger hole opening) were installed in several locations and they also became clogged preventing rain water from entering gutter resulting in rain water falling into flower bed.
4. When local original installer closed business or was bought out, the new Redmond, Washington local Leaf Filter distributor disowned any responsibility for maintaining the life time warranty and said I would have to pay for the repair. No response to phone inquiry asking for assistance to fixing the situation.
From my experience, the Leaf Filter system does not live up to their advertisements. Nor does the company fully back up their warranty. I will now have to hire another company to rework the filter screens in key locations to ensure the rain water actually goes into the gutter and not fall into the flower beds. I am not satisfied with the product or company and I would not recommend this system.
