Photo Album: Leaf Filter failure in the Mount Vernon, WA
Perfect shelf created by Leaf Filter — When gutter systems are installed at a 90* angle debris, needles, and leaves sit on top of the system, clogging it!
Perfect conditions for algae to grow
When the needles, debris, and leaves are wiped away you can see the algae that has been happily growing on top of the Leaf Filter.
No where to go — Because this Leaf Filter is completely clogged with needles, debris, and algae the water is not able to actually get into the gutters, therefore it cascades over the top!

Keeping Gutters Clean in Mount Vernon, WA — Here you can see how the MasterShield system is installed at the same pitch as the roof, thus eliminating the 'shelf' created by other gutter systems.
The Leaf Filter gutter system and the MasterShield gutter system have a couple of similarities. Both consist of an aluminum frame with micro mesh technology, that is, however, where the similarities end. Just a few MAJOR differences between the two systems…
MasterShield is installed at the same pitch as your roof, the leaves, needles, and debris that come off your trees and roof just wash way instead of getting ‘stuck’ on the perfect shelf that Leaf Filter creates when it is installed at a 90* angle.
