Downspout Catch Basin & Proper Gutter and Downspout Sizing
When it comes to clogged gutters and rain gutter cleaning, many homeowners tend to overlook gutter downspouts, most of which are inadequate for efficient downspout drainage.
Clogged downspouts are a very common problem that can easily be addressed with the fast flow, no-clog, Golden Phoenix™ Rain Gutter Guard System.
The Golden Phoenix™ Downspout Drainage System
The Golden Phoenix™ Gutter Guard System . It addresses the issues related to the older traditional gutter downspout drainage systems.
- The small birdie holes are replaced with large 2 X 6 inch V-Shaped Downspout Funnels, which allow rainwater to literally “flush” down the downspout carrying any residual debris with it (large V-shaped downspout funnels simply do not clog, can handle high volumes of water and provide sufficient downspout drainage)
- Narrow gutter downspouts are replaced with larger 2 X 3 inch Gutter Downpipes that are designed to handle large volume rainwater run-off for highly efficient downspout drainage
- Downspout Catch Basins are then installed on the downpipes at about 3 – 4 feet off the ground for quick easy access; these gutter collector boxes act like downspout debris filters, trapping all the smaller residual debris that gets flushed through the downspout funnel and down the gutter downspout
This is a very effective downspout drainage system.
Downspout Drainage Catch Basins
Downspout catch basins are really downspout debris filters but are designed to still allow the rainwater runoff to flow through.
The downspout catch basins can be cleaned from the safety of the ground and emptied on an “as needed” basis (usually several times a year) without the need for ladders or other gutter cleaning equipment. This system can easily be cleaned by the homeowner and eliminates the need for ladders or costly gutter cleaning services.
To clean the downspout catch basin simply slide out the basket and remove the debris. It’s so simple a child or elderly person can do it. The end result is a highly efficient downspout drainage system that provides years of problem free service.
