Are your gutters working as effectively as possible?
Are you finding your gutters overflow and you don't know why?
Are you about to install or select guttering for your new home or extension?
How may litres of water may flow from my roof?
If you answered YES to any of these questions the this application can save you time and help you make the right decisions.
Containing 3 indispensable functions :
Roof Area Calculator
If you need to find out the effective roof area of your roof then by entering in the length, height and selecting an appropriate roof pitch or entering the exact height, you can then calculate the effective roof area in square meters.
Rain Flow Calculator
If you know the effective roof area or have previously calculated the effective roof area then you can determine the rainfall flow in litres per second that will come from your roof. This is invaluable information when deciding the right type of guttering for your roof. We have included the UK average rainfall which is 75mm / hour but you can easily adjust this to your particular circumstance. You can even adjust the effective roof area should you wish to add in a margin for error.
By predicting the rainfall flow from your roof, the application will suggest the gutter dimensions from a bank of 7 standard UK sizes that will help accommodate the amount of rain flow predicted. You can select adjust the results to your own circumstance by selected the outlet location and the level of fall.
