Why a guttervac is not great on corners

On inspection both corners also both roof gulley's were blocked not to mention most of the guttering too.

Would you use a guttervac from the ground on this one?

Problem is using a guttervac from the ground you can't clear the roof valley's or under the lead flashing properly so will still be blocked.

 

One method that I have found that works best is to clear the roof valley's first with a gro-g tool on a wfp then handball most of the debris an sludge out by hand. Then use a guttervac crevice tool and a lengh of hose pipe to clear under the lead flashing properly as shown in pic.

Black bit on the left of the pic is a crevice tool sucking the compacted sludge out whilst I'm clearing the corner through with a small bit of hose. Could also clear the corners through with a garden hose up the ladder or telescopic pressure washer lance but always makes a mess especialy when that house had white walls on the sides of apex.

 

The rest of the guttering on the back which was a straight run but full of sludge so I decided just use a guttervac from the ground.
