I needed to clean the roof gutters on our house and I had ordered a kit for my leaf blower when I boght it. Turned out that it was too much of a chore for this out of shape old geezer to hold the leaf blower up for any length of time, so my grandson used to do it for me. He's been in the Marines for the past couple of years and so the gutters haven't been cleaned. I looked at stuff for sale on the internet and saw a few shop vac kits that seemed like they'd work, so I took a chance and bought the kit for my Ridgid shop vac from Home Depot. The general use seemed to be to vacuum, but that would mean bringing it down and unclogging the tube every few minutes. Sure, that'd work but would take a lonnng time.
I decided to get some large hose ( pvc ? ) clamps and tighten the wands/ tubes together and attach it to the exhaust port of the shop vac. I bought two extra wands at HD, too, so that I could have easier control. I am happy to report that this set up works like a charm !! I only did about half of the back gutter because we had company show up, but it was much easier than wielding a leaf blower. I'll go out later on today and finish the job.
Just thought I'd pass this on to anyone who's interested in a light and easy way to clean their gutters. higher roof? ------ more wands.
