Leaf Relief Designed with high-performance urethane polymers, the Leaf Defier gutter system fits easily into most gutters to help ensure leaves, twigs, needles, and other obstructions are kept from entering and clogging the system. Instead, water flows through the Leaf Defier foam insert to the downspout. In addition to preventing blockages, the product eliminates standing water, which can attract insects.
