The gutters would normally clog on a yearly basis but four years later after installation of the Waterloov product they were found to be free flowing and clean. Only a small trace amount of dirt--approximately 1/32" deep was found in the bottom of the gutter indicating that the dirt was constantly being swept along and down the downspout. With this specific design self cleaning gutters are a reality. Whats more important is that as the these gutter guards may require servicing in heavy debris conditions its simple to do from the ground with a telescopic pole and brush--its called suit and tie maintenance since its not a dirty job. An additional advantage is that unlike the flat gutter guards that need servicing it can easily be seen from the ground where the brushing is required.
The easiest way to keep gutters clean is to keep them from ever clogging in the first place. Consider investing in a gutter protection system. The best gutter protection systems are designed to keep debris out of your gutters without preventing the gutters from doing their job of draining water away from your home. If you decide to install gutter protection look for a product that wont require replacement year after year and can withstand the elements in your particular region. And dont go it alone. Speak with an expert gutter installer who can help you see beyond the shortcomings of inferior products.

Google "Niagara rain gutter cover leaf guards and gutter guards" for the basic design. You will find this basic design on over a dozen different gutter covers. You will find that one of them even has screen openings on its top. Another one has a trough below the fin with openings to screen keep out large debris. In heavy debris conditions you can be guaranteed that sufficient debris will stick to the fin or rounded nose and be guided into the gutter where it will either clog the trough that delivers the water to the gutter or the gutter itself.
