HOW DOES IT WORK?

Surface Tension!

cover-hood2Surface Tension is the tendency of liquid molecules to cling to solid surfaces. Gutter Hood nose-forward design utilizes this law of surface tension to keep your gutters clear of everything except rain!

Of course many variables go into the surface tension property of a liquid such as, temperature, type of liquid, surface, etc. Water at 0 C has a surface tension of 75.64 as the water becomes warmer the surface tension decreases. Surfactants or “surface active agents” can change how surface tension responds. For example detergents, paints, and inks are all surfactants. So it’s not just about design, but also the materials that are used. The picture of water running around the glass is also an example of how Gutter Hood “draws” the water into the gutter.
