      • Inefficient and leaky - but cheap
      • September 03, 2014

      These are not nearly as efficient as other devices on the market. They only catch about 50% of light water flows. If it rains heavily - which is when you really get the mother lode of water - they are completely overwhelmed and begin overflowing down the house siding and onto the foundation. I am a design/manufacturing engineer by trade and have experience in construction. I was very careful installing these to make certain the downspout was properly seated, but during heavy rains, the volume and speed of water falling down the downspout hits the outside perimeter of the device with enough force that it blows out the top and overflows. There are some simple ways they could have improved the product to better seal it against the end of the downspout. They also could have made it more efficient by simply increasing the size of the cone inside and making it diver more water. This product needs refinement. Unfortunately, it appears typical of many of the Amerimax products I've purchased recently at Home depot (Complete gutter replacement, gutter guards, rain harvesting etc..): Nifty concepts VERY poorly executed in design and manufacturing. I am not pleased and wish Home Depot (and Lowes) would carry other alternate brands. Having said all that, I am keeping the 4 that I have installed because even with the inefficiency, we get consistent enough rain here in Western Washington that I will have plenty of water for my needs (laundry, toilets, hot tub, shop). I will fix the overflow problem myself by sealing them into a removable section of downspout.
