Conservatory wall gutter troughs


Smurf

Recommended Posts

Here is a tool I made if anyone is interested to clear edwardian conservatory gutter troughs the easy way.

Also drain rods where also used to clear under the gutter trough brackets to make it easier to do.

The crevice tool also works great on clearing conservatory roof gullies.

Also can be used on conservatory gutters with/without awkward access too.

Thanks for the kind offer @cheapncheerful but no thanks as I've got enough of them to do ;)

 

I did a full exterior house deep clean today with another 6m long box gutter plus side box gutter poxy edwardian conservatory. Now that one was a challenge as I had only access from one side plus the front to get the job done. Also the roof of the conservatory at the back to say the least was a pig of a job to do.

 

I'm not looking forward to tomorrow either as that exterior deep clean is going to be alot more challenging than that one I did today.

Glad to hear its working ok now tuffers.

 

Wait till you do II few gutter jobs in a day. That soon sorts out the men from the boys...:D

I am listening too smurf. The footy has been on tonight though. I havent got a guttervac.......I take

it they test the arm muscles a little?.

actually, i thought of you earlier on when i was on the windowclean centre website......they are promoting progutter products and i wondered if you knew anything of them?. There are various sized heads for clearing the gutters. They look a bit flimsy to me. I will carry on using my pole with an applicator on the end. Mind you, the space between some gutters and the roof tiles are that tight you can hardly get your fingers in.

 

Nice set up In the photos

I've found an old thread that you may find interesring

Many thanks for that Smurf. It actually sounds like they are a good bit of kit. Pleased to see that they fit Unger poles as well. I imagine they make the pole feel a bit lighter when fully extended in contrast to having a wet applicator on the end. All the gunk that sticks to the applicator makes it even heavier. How do you deal with those gutters where the gap between the roof tiles and gutter is really tight and you cant get a tool in to clear? I tend to use my fingers and sometimes a desert spoon, which makes for slow work.
