We just REPLACED our LeafGuard gutters with a standard rain gutter. We had the LeafGuard system for YEARS.
You'd think if they were that great, we'd buy them again when it came time to replace them. Nope. So, why weren't they so great? Simple.
They don't really work as advertised, and they are WAY over-priced. LeafGuard wants you to think that the water drains into the gutter, but the leaves fall off the top onto the ground. Nope again. A WET LEAF follows the rain right into the gutter.
In time, your gutter FILLS UP with wet leaves. We knew we had a problem when we came home from shopping one spring day, and GRASS and small flower petals were growing out of the gutter. Yup. There were enough wet leaves accumulated to provide a base for stuff to grow.
And good luck trying to clean out that gutter. The slot where the water flows into is so NARROW, it's impossible to get a water hose through.
We went back ro a standard gutter. Yes, they have to be cleaned periodically, but at least you can get a garden hose in them, and they're FAR cheaper than LeafGuard.
