DIY gutter vac

Recommended Posts

andy1992

Do you think a gutter vac with a really long vacuum hose would work if it had the angled end piece attached and was then somehow attached to a gardiner slx if that makes sense. Like a wfp where the hose is outside the pole except it’s vacuum hose not pole hose ?

 

Cheers

I have something similar and attach it to either the 27' or 45' pole depending on the height. The upsides are it is handy being able to get it at the correct height and to raise or lower it quickly, it is cheap, and poles don't jam together, the downside is it is a lot heavier than either alloy or carbon fibre poles.

Thanks that’s interesting. I would have thought an slx 25 would be lighter than the alloy poles ? How did u attach it to your pole ?

Mild steel bracket and a machine turned aluminium bar that gets clamped in the top.

Not a good idea imo. I had 50ft of 2 inch Hose on gutter poles for one particular job and I got a blockage and it was a nightmare to shift in such a long run of hose. I
