PVC Guttering - Compatibility Chart
Rainwater systems compatibility chart when fitting FloPlast products alongside other manufacturers.
A range of quality products to keep your plastic and metal guttering in pristine condition. Gutters work best when they are well maintained - they should be regularly cleaned out to avoid debris from entering (and potentially blocking) the drainage system. A clean down with soapy water once or twice a year also keeps them looking as good as new.
Products like GutterBrush and FloGuard help make this job easier by preventing the bulk of the debris from settling in the gutters in the first place. These products are tried and tested and we at PVC Cladding can testify that they are an excellent investment to save both time and money maintaining the gutter system in the years ahead.
Most blocked gutters are caused by fallen leaves, moss, twigs and dirt washed down from the roof covering. Whilst it is impossible to prevent nature from creating these conditions, we can at least take preventive actions to minimise their disruptions. The simplest way is to fit a leaf guard into the outlet of the gutter, where it joins the downpipe. This simple, inexpensive fitting stops pipes from becoming blocked by catching the leaves and moss before they are swept into the pipe. All that is required to maintain this fitting is the removal of leaves from around the guard a couple of times a year.
We recommend you fit a mesh system or one of the new generation of gutter brushes. Both of these products work in a more proactive way by actually stopping leaves and dirt from being washed into the gutters in the first place. Mesh systems clip on the top of the gutters, whilst gutter brushes are long lengths of nylon bristles fixed to a central wire that actually fits inside the gutter profile, filling the void whilst still allowing water to flow through the system.
