Customer Questions & Answers

Can you leave them on during winter?

I have the problem with my gutter downspout end openings freezing after melted gutter snow refreezes. Does the extender prevent the water from freezing? Does the winter cold and snow damage the extenders?

How long are these and do they roll up?

Asked by: Valerie
They do roll up so as long as the metal spring is them is not worn out they are 48 inches long when fully unrolled but subtract a few inches that will be on the downspout to see if it will fit in your area

Automatic Drain Away Downspout Extender System is rated 2.1 out of 5 by 34.

I purchased 2 and installed as directed. I stood outside for several rain events to watch to see if they worked as advertised. Instead of unrolling, they remained generally half-way unrolled and pushed the rain out the connection to the downspout instead. I rechecked the installation directions, gave another pull on the zip tie that almost bent the downspout, and nothing changed. The Guarantee printed on the box: "This product is guaranteed to work properly for one year. If it doesn't, Frost King will replace it or refund the price to the original purchaser upon proof of purchase. In any case, our liability will be limited to the purchase price." Frost King (through their website) offered to send me more, but with rain now draining along my foundation I requested the purchase price refund and sent a copy of my HD receipt and the written guarantee from the box on October 25, 2016. On November 12, 2016 I requested acknowledgement of my October 25th email. Frost King has not responded. I wasted my time and money. Don't buy this product and don't plan on having Frost King stand behind any statements of Guarantee.

I was using pvc pipe under my rain gutter run off to direct the water away from my basement. I was sick of moving the pipe everytime I mowed so I thought these might eliminate the problem. They don't unroll unless their overflowing with water & it has to be a major downfall to keep them unrolled. Until they unroll, the water gushes out the top until the pressure is strong enough to start unrolling them. Still too much water being dumped out in the corners along my basement. Went back to the pvc pipe directing the water 10ft. from my house, they work!!, no water in my basement.

As others have noted, we could not seem to get enough rain for this to unroll. My guess is if you spend a of time loosening it up it might someday work. But we have 2 of these in different locations and neither unrolls automatically. As a result, in the midst of 2 good rain storms they stay coiled and the water builds up in the downspout and leaks out around the Drain Away. Consider something else.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't purchase The product does Not roll out, it would need a significant amount of water pressure to do so. It is waste of money...and I purchased 2.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Mine had no holes! Like the description says, the unit I purchased had no holes punched out of it. We had severe thunderstorms go through the same day that I installed this. When I looked out to see if it was working, I could see that it was completely full and water which was also escaping from where I attached it to the downspout. The next day, I went outside to check on it to see if it had rolled back up and to my surprise, it was still completely full of water! Not a single hole in the product for the water to drain out of. I had to stab it with a fork! I took it off and installed it inside my garbage can where it belongs.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Ehh - Not that great. I had high hopes for this based on others reviews, but it just doesn't work well for me. It takes a lot of pressure to force the tubing to rollout flat and dispense the water. For me I installed it as written on the package, but when it fills up with water - the tube doesn't rollout flat. Instead the water just leaks out over the top of the the tubing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from WORTHLESS! I cannot believe they can even sell this product. Does not work at all! Does not unroll so water just pours out where it is attached, no matter how tight you pull the ziptie. Very cheaply made. It began raining right after I installed it and it was a complete disaster! Not only does it have holes at the end to release the water if it did unroll but it has random holes down the length of the cheap flimsy tube. Did not work for 5 seconds despite following the instructions to the letter. Complete garbage! Don't waste your time or money. Zero stars!!!!!!
