About This Product

Looking for a way to keep mosquitoes under control this summer. Well, if you've got downspouts and downspout extenders there is an ideal breeding ground right in your backyard. Downspout extenders are a great way to direct rainwater away from your home, but the corrugated design often leads to an accumulation of stagnant water. This leftover water is the perfect place for mosquitoes to lay their eggs. We created GUTTERFOAM - Drain Tube as an easy way to prevent mosquitoes and other pests from using your gutter system to breed in. The minimalist design is effective and easy to install while letting rainwater pass through unimpeded. GUTTERFOAM - Drain Tube is made from the same high-quality polyether outdoor foam as GUTTERFOAM and is infused with a UV and germicide protectant to prevent bacteria growth in your downspout. Installation is easy, just insert GUTTERFOAM - Drain Tube foam into the end of your downspout or downspout extender and that is it, removal is just as simple. GUTTERFOAM - Drain Tube measures 4.4 in. across and 2.2 in. and can be easily be cut to fit smaller openings. GUTTERFOAM - Drain Tube also works great with rain barrels as a simple way to prevent debris from accumulating in the bottom of your rain barrel. GUTTERFOAM - Drain Tube is available in packages of 4 to protect every corner of your home, but with the ease and variety of use, it is always useful to have a few extra on hand.

Q:I want to use these drain tubes differently. I want to insert them while I am ON THE ROOF into the opening of the gutter drain to prevent leaves and cicadas from dropping Down into the drain pipe. Will this work?
by|Feb 28, 2024

Answer This Question

A:  These would probably work for that purpose as well. We do offer our GutterFoam Downspout product, which is meant for the downspout open to keep stuff from going down the drain. It is available on homedepot.com: https://www.homedepot.com/p/GutterFoam-3-in-x-4-in-Downspout-Gutter-Guard-GF-DS12487-HD/306938552

      Q:I have a problem with small rodents getting in the extenders. Do these compress to fit smaller, 3" round extenders?
      by|Jul 8, 2023

      Answer This Question

      A:  The foam does compress, but by compressing, it may restrict some water flow. You can also easily trim with a utility knife to make fit.

      by|Jul 17, 2023

        A:  Yes they work really well for gutters. If u have other places around the house they will work as well . The material is thick and won’t move out of place .

          Q:I have a downspout that I can hear when the water runs/drips down it. Would this product, when inserted in the bottom of the gutter, reduce some of the sound of water hitting the metal?

          1 Answer
          Answer This Question

          A:  Yes, GutterFoam Drain Tube will reduce the sound of the water hitting the metal. We have heard from customers that have used it for this very reason, and they were very happy with the results.

            Better solution.. don't use cheap corrugated plastic that is certain to crack!
            These are a solution to a problem created by the manufacturer. Corrugated plastic hoses. Great for a TEMPORARY solution. When it stops raining, do a PROPER JOB of plumbing the downspout away from your foundation, using QUALITY materials, that will last a long time, and drain properly (no mosquito problem) and not fail on you the next time it storms.

              It doesn't do what it's supposed to do.
              The first heavy rain spit that plug out of the downspout extension instead of allowing the water to flow through it as described in the sales and product literature. Should have know it was too good to be true.

              Steve,
              Sorry to hear that GutterFoam Drain Tube did not work for you. When it is in the downspout extension it should fit very tight, thus heavy rain would not push it out. This is the first time we have heard of this issue. If the foam was not tight and you need a larger piece of foam, we can custom cut any size piece of foam. Please contact us at 866-766-3442 if you would like to discuss further. TjmWW

              Gutterfoam drain tube works great and has eliminated the problem of leaves getting into my rain barrel. In addition, has also made it impossible for mosquitos to get into the rain barrel as well.

                These almost completely blocked my downspouts during a heavy rain storm. I’m so lucky I checked on them (and removed them) — huge amounts of water came pouring out. Not a good trade off, IMO: who cares about mosquitoes if the product causes water damage to your home?

                Wasn’t sure if they would fall out or if water would pass thru, but they kept in place and water passes thru fine!
