What’s growing in our gutters?

Mike Downey got a call from a property manager who needed someone to urgently clean the gutters of a two-storey investment property. Here’s what Mike said about this job:

“We turned up to the job this morning and as I walked around the side of the house all I could hear was water dripping onto the pathway. I then looked up and saw what looked like a part of the hurdle to be used for the Great Eastern Steeplechase at the upcoming Oakbank Easter Racing Carnival!

We were wondering why so much water was coming over the top of the gutters…there hasn’t been any rain in Adelaide since Noah and his Ark landed and the air conditioner was situated on the ground.

When we got onto the roof, it was clear the solar hot water system had sprung several leaks and water was running straight in the gutter, feeding the growth!

We managed to remove the ‘hurdle’ and alerted the agent that immediate action was required to fix the HWS.”


A crisis narrowly averted! Great job Mike and team.
