gutter downpipe annoying drip

cooperyangMarch 15, 2006

Hi,

My gutters are not sloped properly and water collects near the downpipe and slowly drips down making an annoying noise. It doesn't actually occur during rain, it flows freely then. It is after the rain when the pools slowly drip down. Outside of replacing or reinstalling the gutters are there any other solutions?

thanks in advance,

Eric

Are the water drops free falling inside the downspout and making a "tap...tap....tap...." noise down below?

If so, take a look up there where the downspout connects. If you can see where the drops are falling, perhaps you can bend that edge a little bit to the side to get it closer to the inside wall of the gutter. Point is to get the drops to hit the inside walls instead of landing at the bottom.

It appears to me that you answered your own question. Your gutters are not sloped properly, solution, move the hanger and correct the slope.
