About This Product

Debris comes in all shapes and sizes. But the ones that fall from trees can be some of the worst for your drainage system. When overhanging branches drop leaves, needles, and twigs that make their way down from the roof to your gutter downspout, let the Downspout Defender outdoor drainage grate stop them in their tracks before they can enter and choke up your drain pipes. The downspout drain grate features a unique design that captures more stormwater runoff than a traditional flat water grate. Made to fit on top of your 12 in. catch basin drain, it's built with an angled grate, with the high end closing the distance the water drops from the downspout, preventing water from splashing against the building wall or ricocheting off the grate surface. The debris that hits the grate automatically slides off the sloped surface and settles into an easy-to-clean shelf. Combine with the Catch Basin Insert Filter (sold separately) inside your catch basin to block out fine particles for a smooth-running drainage system. For any size project and environment, you'll find a drainage solution to meet your needs from NDS. Get started with the free NDS Home Drainage Center tool at ndspro.com/home-drainage to find your custom solution. Trust in the professionals' choice for rainwater management, available in stores nationwide and online.

Q:My downspouts have outlets at a 45 degree angle instead of straight down. I was thinking of using this grate in a reversed position (tall side away from home instead of against home) so the water uses the tall side as a backsplash, ensuring more of the water coming out at the angle goes in the basin. Is that a bad idea for any reason? Thanks.

A:  Jak - I hear what you are saying, however, that is not how the product has been tested and intended to operate. Here is a portion describing its intended purpose from the spec/website: "The downspout drain grate features a unique design that captures more stormwater runoff than a traditional flat water grate. Made to fit on top of your 12 in. catch basin drain, it's built with an angled grate, with the high end closing the distance the water drops from the downspout, preventing water from splashing against the building wall or ricocheting off the grate surface. The debris that hits the grate automatically slides off the sloped surface and settles into an easy-to-clean shelf"

    Q:Do you recommend the 12x12 vs the 9x9 for 3x4 downspouts (metal roof/coastal location with frequent heavy rains)?

    Answer This Question

    A:  Without knowing the specifics regarding the amount of rain, roof runoff, quantity downspouts, size of roof, I would go with the 12" basin based on the "frequent heavy rains" you experience. The 12" basin/ grate can handle around 155 gallons per minute, compare to the 9" which will do aroun 110gpm.

      Have had these for about a month. Install was easy and they work great. They keep leaves and other debris out and let the water flow through. Would recommend them if you have a need for good gutter water flow.

      Clogs with leaves
      Clogs with leaves and requires cleaning after or during every storm. I tried everything I can think of. I may try putting a screen over the face like the other reviewer to keep leaves and sticks from clogging the grate.

        I’m using this grate for catching rainwater off my roof. This works great for what i need it for. I used an adhesive to attach a thick screen over the front of the grate to prevent debris from the roof from getting inside the catch basin. It works great!!

        Using this grate with a 12 x 12 filter bag in a low lying area of the back yard to minimize blockage during heavy rains. It appears to be working well ... the recent heavy downpours have provided a good test!
