LeafGuard Gutters of St. Cloud Case Studies: Rain Barrels

Challenge

The homeowner wanted to capture water coming from the downspout installed by the third stall of their garage utilizing a rain barrel.

 

Solution

Our LeafGuard® Gutter Technicians, Craig & Tanner, constructed a custom tip-up downspout by first installing a LeafGuard® big mouth adapter at the bottom of the gutter trough. The big mouth adapted allows for a bigger opening when inserting downspouts. A LeafGuard® B elbow was used to turn the cross arms towards the siding with a 3′ LeafGuard® downspout extension. Another B elbow was used to chain the cross arm to the LeafGuard® Y adapter.  A Y adapted is used to interlink two downspouts into one.

The Y adapted has two openings. In one end, a flex hose (came with rain barrel) was inserted to connect the adapter, to the rain barrel. Water funnels out the LeafGuard® Gutter trough, through the downspout and into the rain barrel. In the other opening of the Y adapter, a 6′ LeafGuard® downspout extension was inserted and a LeafGuard® A hinge kicker was installed to make the 3′ downspout extension flip up. When the homeowner needs to perform yard maintenance or during the winter months when the rain barrel is not being used, they can easily tip and clip the extension out of the way!

LeafGuard® Gutters are drained through the custom downspout fabricated with the use of LeafGuard® A & B Elbows and a Y Adapter, into a rain barrel.

“New gutters do a phenomenal job of capturing water and keeping leaves out. The installation crew that stopped out were fantastic and very professional! ”

“The gutters really compliment my home exterior. LeafGuard was able to match the color of the gutters to my fascia and downspouts to my siding.”

“I was impressed with the product and VERY impressed with their crews! Great job LeafGuard!!”

“Sabrina was so helpful finding a good time for someone to come give me an estimate. She gave me a small timeframe to expect their rep and Jay showed up as expected. He was very knowledgeable and took the time to explain to me how LeafGuard would solve my problems. I can’t wait to have my new gutters installed!”

“We were not at home when our gutters were installed. We couldn't even tell they had been there - perfect cleanup. The salesman was prompt, courteous and very knowledgeable. Excellent product and previous experience with the installers is what made us choose LeafGuard again.”
