    he seems to rate the hedgehog, but amazon reviewers reveal stuff still grows on them, and gets stuck under, so it just delays the inevitable clear and clean :)

    might be worth printing out a variation to stick on back of a flyer perhaps

    If customers ask I just say they don't really work as are not maintenance free. People normally want me to take them out not put them in after I show them some pics how bad their gutters are

    Usually I recommend removing them,time consumer gutter cleaning so in the end cheaper to take them out and clear gutters more often

    its like if theres even a vague idea someone will invent something to make money out of it, and human nature is to then buy it. It's not good, but if I could invent a drain badger that half worked and make my million, I would shamelessly do it no doubt :D

    I refuse to put them back!! And I charge more to take them out. If a customer absolutely insists they need something the hedgehog is the only one I would vaguely recommend
