The Problem – Gutter Flooding
Guttering often overflows in heavy rain. With a vast majority of conventional guttering, the back is lower than the front, which leads to the water flowing into the eaves and down the cavity of the wall. This is called gutter flooding and it can cause major damage to your home.

EASY FALL™ Leaf & Ember Guard will be great at keeping major debris out of your current guttering and can assist in improving the overflow problem but it doesn’t mean that your guttering will not overflow in heavy rain as conventional guttering is installed with insufficient fall therefore in heavy rain it often overflows because it does not flow away quickly enough.

Effective Gutter Water Collector
Making for an excellent gutter water collection tool is the EASY FALL™ Leaf & Ember Guard. One of the biggest drawbacks of standard gutters is that the back of the gutter is lower than the front. This means that the water can, and often will, flood back into the eaves, roof timbers, wall cavities and even into the interior of the home.
Whereas our EASY FALL™ Leaf & Ember Guard has been designed with profiles to suit various roof types, so that the back is always higher than the front. This means that the rainwater does not spill over into the eaves and roof—eliminating gutter flooding. It can also be fitted to all types of existing standard gutters, so whatever type you have installed in your home, it’s bound to fit.
Featuring a shallow-dish effect, it allows for most leaves to be dried out and blown away by the action of the sun and wind, especially if there is good exposure to these elements. Depending on the aspect of your house and the vicinity of trees, the occasional removal of leaves with a leaf blower or hose may be required. In the heaviest of rainfall, rainwater is continually flushing through the PVC channel to the downpipes and drainage system, thus minimising the need for overall gutter maintenance.
