All the parts can be found at the local hardware store or if you are like me, at home.
This is what is needed:
1 10' length of 3/4 PVC pipe.
1 3/4" PVC to Garden hose adapter
1 3/4" PVC ball valve
1 3/4" PVC L
1 3/4 to 1/2 L (1/2" side being threaded)
1 6" sprinkler riser, 1/2" in diameter
Can of PVC Glue
PVC pipe cutter or hacksaw
Step 1: Cutting up the PVC pipe.
The 6 foot length is determined by the height of your house. When assembled, you will want to be able to comfortably hold the cleaner on the ground and reach the rain gutter.
Step 2: Assembling the cleaner
Connect 6" piece of PVC to the two L connectors. This creates a U shaped hook that will reach into your raingutter
Connect the sprinkler riser to the threaded L connector
Connect the 6' length of PVC to the L connector.
Connect the valve to the 6' length
Connect the 2' length to the other side of the valve
Connect the garden hose adapter to the end.
If your house is a two story house, you can add another piece of PVC pipe where the 6' length is. If you I would put threaded couplers on the long pieces so it can be taken apart and stored and used on lower roofs.
If you have a real high house, you might want to consider using 1" PVC for strength, but that will increase the cost of the cleaner.
