Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Alrod Great Alternative to Gutters
This is one of those products that demonstrates American innovation. I needed an alternative to a traditional gutter for my deck. Gutters require a lot of parts. Contractors wanted too much money to install them. So, to avoid my having to work from a ladder that I do not have AND transport 10 ft sections of gutters and downspouts in a small car, I went with Rainhandler. It is available in brown whereas brown gutters are a special order. Installing the system was straightforward. I made angled wood spacers since my fascias were angled. The most difficult part was lining up the 4 sections so that they would meet. The entire installation was done from the deck, not on a ladder. It has been dispersing the rain well since installed. I am completely satisfied with my Rainhandler system.

Interesting substitute to gutters. Super easy to install. Hasn't rained yet so I can't say if they work.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JohnnyC Solved my problem of mulch erosion
The RainHandler came complete with everything for a quick installation. Had one overhang section which was only 5' wide that continually eroded the foundation bed directly below. The drop was about 8' from bottom of overhang to the flower bed. Once the RainHandler was installed (simple screwdriver installation) the rain is now dispersed about 2' on to the walkway. Still watered the flowerbed but not with the force of the prior waterfall coming down without the RainHandler.
One other point to make is that I purchased the natural aluminum unit not the painted unit. Was able to spray paint the entire unit with a good Rustoleum paint to match the beige color of my existing trim. Blends in perfectly with the house.

I bought these because I had no gutters over my deck and the rain wore the paint off. These were easy to install and do the job. Perfect if you just need to diffuse the rain and no gutters to clean!

I have a new patio cover, 14'x24' shed style with a gable in the center. It's all built atop a concrete foundation. The rain pours off on either side of the gable and splatters water 3 feet inside the patio and gets my furniture wet. I looked around and found these and thought I would give them a try.
I only needed 2 sections because the runoff is only about 4 feet wide on each side of the gable. I installed them last week and it rained today. I must say that they work extremely well and absolutely destroy the water stream and shoot the drops out about 3 feet from the roof line. There is about an 8" drop to the rainhandler so there's a little extra energy in my system.
If you have a similar situation with your patio cover, these are the fix.....promise.

I used these on my shed. So much easier and quicker than putting up a gutter. The rain had been just falling off the roof right next to the shed and, after years of this, I began to notice some water damage around the bottom. I put these on to spread out the water so it is not falling right next to the shed and keeping the bottom of the walls soaked.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Shep00 Awesome Product! Easy Installation!
I have a steep roof valley that was washing out the dirt below during a rain. I have decided that the mfg install guidelines did not fit my application, so I installed diagonal in the corner under the drip of the valley. During a hard rain, the water would overshoot, so I installed a double width of the rainhandler. I cut the rainhandler at an angle to fit to the faca on the house. Works great now to disperse the water and keeping from washout below and under a concrete walkway. LOVE this product!
