Slow the speed and reduce the force of the rain water exiting your downspout with the Downspout Splash Block Diffuser.
so we finally get that much needed rain. However with a heavy downpour,
there often arises a common landscape problem: washout. This happens
most often at the bottom of downspouts, especially during heavy rains.
In this common problem, the gutters collect the roof runoff and channel
it down the downspout, the result of which is something like a powerful
jet stream of water eroding the ground beneath your downspouts. Soil and
mulch don't stand a chance, even stones can get moved around as the
high velocity water is jettisoned into your yard or onto the driveway.
Buy this downspout splash block and slow that water down.
Splash Block Diffuser will be shipped assembled and ready to be
installed on a 3"x4" downspout. If you have 2"x3" downspouts, you will
need to screw the supplied 2"x3" adapter into place on the back of the
Splash Block. Colors for this Made in America product can be found in
the drop down menu. |

water and distribute it over a wider area. The holes in the floor of
the unit allow you to use spikes to help hold it in place in addition to
securing it with screws to the downspout elbow.|
