Raindrop Muffler — "Stop noisy downspouts"

P108435L ddw

I've had to deal with a noisy downspout for many years.

It's about 10 feet from my sleeping self, at the junction of a downspout and a short gutter that carries water to another downspout that goes to ground level.

I recently described a quick and dirty fix using a 3M scrubbing pad that I wedged into the base of the downspout.

Now comes a purpose-built solution.

From the website:


Place this waterproof insert in your gutter to end annoying raindrop noise that keeps you awake.

Insert virtually eliminates noise, allowing water to flow out quietly and freely. 

Installs in seconds using a pencil and scissors.

Fits most downspouts.

2-5/8" x 6".


Two for $9.99.
