Unique features & benefits:

Autospout is a mechanical drainage unit which eliminates the need for a permanent drainage pipe at the base of downspouts.

It lowers itself to the ground only when it is raining and lifts back up automatically once the rain stops. It eliminates the need for a drainage pipe when it is not raining, as well as reduces tripping hazards, and the replacing of damaged extension pipes caused by yard equipment and playing children.

The unit uses the weight of rainwater to overcome a tensioned lifting mechanism required to raise and hold the extension pipe in a vertical position. The pipe will stay down even in mild rain due to a unique reservoir attached to the end of the extension pipe. The reservoir adds enough weight to keep the pipe in the down position until the rainfall stops. Once the rain has stopped, the remaining water in the reservoir bleeds out, allowing the lifting mechanism to return the pipe back up against the wall. It will be there only when needed.

It avoids the expense of piping the drain underground and eliminates the need to manually remove and replace extensions when performing yard work, at the same time enhancing the exterior appearance of a home.

The Autospout is virtually maintenance free:

  • it has very few moving parts;
  • can be adapted to virtually all existing styles of downspouts;
  • is mountable on three sides;
  • is very easy to install; and
  • is made from high strength lightweight PVC plastic which doesn't fade or scratch.
  • the length of extension pipe is also adjustable.

Target market:

  1. Homeowners
  2. New home builders
  3. Landscapers
  4. Senior citizen housing complexes
  5. Any dwelling which requires a downspout
