Do You Have Noisy Downspouts?
Here’s the Solution – Silent Spout ®
Silent Spout® is a revolutionary downspout that is dramatically quieter than the traditional noisy downspout – while keeping the same look, function, and high-quality materials. This means it can be added seamlessly to an existing guttering system, regardless of style or color.
The patent-pending Silent Spout is exclusively available through Gutter Cover Kansas City ®. It has been tested to dampen downspout noise by 50%!
The Silent Spout® Story
The search for a quiet downspout began one Saturday morning when Doug awoke much too early to a frustratingly loud and consistent ‘drip’ sound. A brief investigation brought him to a noisy downspout just outside his bedroom.
He started with Google:
A Google Search Will Get You ‘Quick-Fix’, Short Term Solutions Such As:
– ‘Buy a section of PVC pipe, 5-6 inches in diameter. Slip it up around the downspout in the offending area. Then fill the space between the downspout and the PVC pipe with expanding foam.’
– ‘Stick a sock in the downspout’
– ‘Glue a sponge to the inside of the downspout’
– ‘Nail artificial turf nailed inside the lower elbow of the downspout’
– ‘Swap the downspout out for an ugly, flimsy plastic one’
These options are not only short-lived, ineffective, and problematic, but they also lower the overall curb appeal of a home.
The Search Continues
Driven to find a solution, Doug consulted with industries that utilize noise-dampening technology. This education provided him with the knowledge he needed to innovate. He developed a theory and tried it out on his own home. The result: peace and quiet!
Over the years, several of Doug’s customers asked whether he knew of any solution for noisy downspouts. Doug installed the technology now known as Silent Spout ® on their home. Again, these noisy downspouts became quiet.
