It doesn’t matter if you live in a place with constant rainfall or occasional storms—having a functional gutter system is essential for your home. However, knowing where exactly to deliver vast volumes of water without damaging your home’s exterior and foundations is also important. Chattahoochee Gutter Co. Inc., your local source of gutter protection systems, shares the rainwater delivery options to consider for your home.

1. Drainage Pit

Also known as a dry well or soakaway pit, a drainage pit in your garden is one option to lead rainwater flowing from your gutters and downspouts toward the drain in a safe way without disturbing your home’s curb appeal. This option is best for handling large volumes of water coming out of your gutter system.

2. Rain Barrel

Investing in a rain barrel is one way to store rainwater flowing from your gutter system. With this, you can use whatever amount of water stored for other purposes in your home or garden, especially during the dry season. The container, which is made of plastic or wood and can be up to 100 gallons, can be installed underground or aboveground depending on your needs. All you need is a diverter that you can add to your downspout to deliver water into the rain barrel.

3. Rainwater Collection System

Alternatively, you can invest in a rainwater collection system. It consists of big tanks installed underground. Rainwater from the gutters fills the tanks, which are linked to a filter and a pump that ejects water out when needed.

For any of these options to work, your gutter system must be in good working condition. Otherwise, water may overflow from your gutters, affecting your landscaping and foundation and exposing your home exterior to moisture problems.

To protect your gutters and your home from clogs that may result in any of these issues, consider investing in gutter protection systems. At Chattahoochee Gutter Co., Inc., we install the innovative Gutter Helmet®, which completely covers your gutters to protect them from leaves, dirt, pine needles and other debris.
