The SpoutOff (www.thespoutoff.com) is basically 4 powder-coated aluminum parts that can be installed with new rain gutters or retrofitted onto present rain gutters.
The SpoutOff provides 2 very important benefits: (1) A very large outlet (hole in gutter at top of downspout) that virtually will not clog, and (2) a removable feature that enables any homeowner to remove a 1, 2 even 3-story downspout and check the outlet from the safety of the ground. No ladder needed, no tools needed.
If the outlet in a gutter is clean, water will ALWAYS flow out of that gutter even if there is debris in the rest of that gutter.
Conversely, a gutter could be perfectly clean but if the outlet is clogged, water will never flow out of that gutter, NEVER.
Gutters that work every time it rains are all about the outlet, the clean, clear outlet, The SpoutOff outlet.
The SpoutOff is an upsell product for Installers and Contractors and a terrific Do-It-Yourself product for handy homeowners -- that's how easy The SpoutOff is to install.
