When using my blower I give the end of the downspouts a quick shot.
This blows leaves and debris out all the way up to the gutter.

Tom,

I don't understand the question you have about this. Please reword that a little.

I think it is an idea and not a question.

The blower is powerful enough to clean the downspout from the ground as the leaves and debris exit thru the top at the gutter.

Baths... thankfully our "cosmetic" soaker tub only gets filled once a year or so. I hope to continue that tradition in the new place!

*groan*.  daughters and wife like to take long baths with several drain/refill sessions...  Hot water heating is expensive in a house with women!!!  Wish I was small enough to fit in a bath, they seem to love it.. I probably would too.  Old aches and pains..

I miss our hot tub.

Not the H word!!!

My wife wants a hot tub! I'm sure it would be awesome to have one, except for the 362 days/year it would just sit there, unused, costing us money! Lol.

She jokingly mentioned putting in an outdoor sauna to go with it, but I know deep down there was some seriousness in that comment. Doh!

I've used mine the clean the gutter from a ladder. Works well for that too. You obviously have to be careful. Never thought of blowing up the down spout. Thanks for sharing.

Boy do I know gutter drama.  With so many trees and flowering bradfords, I use to have clog after clog.  Then I paid to have G* G* installed and no more of that crap.

I used the blower all of the time to clear the gutters.  Beats reaching into grab all of that nasty stuff, let along the unseen spiders and bugs mixed in it.  No thank you.
