This year, I decided to stop risking life and limb on the roof and to use a shop vac and a gutter clearing device to attach to the extension for the shop vac. Trouble was, when I made my trek to the hardware store, I found the shop vac, but the gutter cleaner was an online order. What to do? Improvise of course.
So, I visited the plumbing aisle and picked up the following components:
Step 1: Step 1: Materials
- A length of two inch ABS pipe.
- Two inch sink trap to form the 180 degree bend for the gutter.
- A 2 1/2 inch to 1 1/2 inch rubber reducer
- Extra extension for the shop vac to provide the necessary extension length to reach the roof from ground level
