Economy gutter rinsing aid/tool. $6 as compared to $75 Beta at this point
Permalink  
 



I had an informed client in Clifton VA make a specific  request to me after we'd won their business over a few other companies in the Northern Virginia area.  This knowledgeable client wanted their gutters rinsed after the roof was cleaned.  A respectful and rightful request, which we do routinely.

It just so happens we had just completed Beta testing on a rinsing tool that costs a mere $6.00 in parts (complete) as compared to some $75 (and up) tools.    This is far better than wedging a firemans nozzle under a gutter spike.

If anyone is interested, I'll provide pics of the Beta prototype and of it in action.  It's amazingly simple.

Hi Marcus.  It's simple, as compared to the big bucks that some folks are asking.  Here's a pic of it in action, and a pic of the results on ONE SIDE. (There were down spouts on two sides and they were both flowing nicely.)   This provides equal pressure/flow bi-directionally to ensure an adequate and speedy flush.  Nothing to it.  'Cept for throwing away $69 or so.

I can provide a detailed pic tomorrow if anyone would like.  It's in the truck and I'm a bit tired.

Sharing information OPENLY is what this forum is about, or was about.......

Chris - I miss your influence - said with the utmost respect.

Interesting. I just put together something very similar just last week.

I didn't put the T on the bottom of mine, though. I'll have to do that. Thanks!

Very observant Griz.  smile.gif  Pretty BASIC Shi% none the less. Not to mention a substantial savings over the "MSRP"  LOL.

Great idea! You could reduce the openings for more pressure. Nice

Here are a few pics that I took this morning.  Nothing fancy by any means, but it works well. I think I got lucky with the angles/geometry.  I wanted to prevent this contraption  and the hose from resting against the house.

There are brass ball valves on the end of the hoses, so no PVC ball valve was used.

Just a few bucks in PVC.

Damnit you beat me too it. lol

I just built something simialr for the last job we did and haven't taken pics.
Good minds think alike I guess.

I was actually going to add 0020 or 1520 nozzles to the ends of mind but didn't get that far.

Very cool Ted. Make sure you have some extra pieces in case this one drops and breaks.

Looks like the first one I ever built. Nice option.

You must be following me around, LOL.  I built almost the same thing after coming home from the Tampa show.  I got the idea after seeing AC's posts of items he would have for sale at the show.  The "gutter canes" can be very helpful on the roofs with underground gutter drains.  Great way of building on a budget Ted, and thanks AC for the introduction of this great tool.

This simple little device came in very handy the other day on the job, as a gutter on a very large home had suffered some damage from a fallen tree.  Since SH was flowing freely from the gash in the gutter, a heavy dilution was needed.

With Spring around the corner, I thought a *bump* was in order for anyone else that may benefit from this.

Nice timing Ted,..these cheaply made tools can come in handy for those who chose to utilize such a tool.
