You just keep flushing the ground after rinsing the roof where the downspouts come out towards plants or grass and put your hand in the brown colored water and see if it still slimey feeling or squeeky clean feeling except for houses with heavy water softeners if that is the case just stick your finger in and then taste it to make sure it is not salty tasting anymore. Then your good, 10 years no plant damage and have not used a foot of plastic to cover plants in that 10 years, I use gutter bags on tile roofs only.

Lets come to a jist here. Think that the right word. I'm thinking about rinsing gutters, but I didnt catch the same reason?

This is to get out of bagging gutters? A gutter full of frozen Ice? (think twice about owning that).

I'm thinking about puting something together, to keep water flowing in the CLEAN gutters n downspouts, Then you wouldnt have to bag downspouts. The chit coming out so diluted. Fuk it. BUT!!!! How much extra work is this?

Bottom line.....

I think some one posted, uhh,, They been doing this long time, and this is extra chit! (My condensed version).

MAJOR Question I dont know. SH and rust.

SH and aluminum. rust.

Can that happen? Can our roof cleaning mix, rust aluminum. I'm saying no.

 Mike - I'm sure you know this; roof mix can be very hard on the paint on aluminium siding.  And I just had a HVAC guy explain to me how bad salt water can be on outside evaporator units.

Is filling the gutters all the way up with water ok on the gutters, seems like that would be a lot of weight in them. 

 I've seen a lot of gutters full of solid ice in the middle of winter and still hanging  without problem.  If installed correctly, their should be no problem with the extra weight.  Make sure you look at how well they are fastened before you start.


 Well I clean alot of gutters and I can certainly say plugging the downspout and overflowing the gutter is a real bad idea. Gutters hold alot weight when there full and it can loosen there connection to the house causing them to be misaligned therfore not work as there supposed to. Sure you will be long gone as the gutters get worse and worse and eventually need to be replaced, but good business ethics by not causing future damage to someones house goes along way.

Yes they do get quite a build up ice, but thats an uncontrollable act of god.

Eric, do you plug the downspouts so the cane causes overflow out the tops of the gutters or do you let it all flow out the downspouts?

I converted my gmail over to the new look. It has a widget just for Gutterdog.
