After calculating the roof surface, choose how to install gutters to the roof structure and pipes to the building wall (type of holders), and then determine how many elements will be needed to mount the complete system on the building.
At the beginning, we start by attaching the gutter hooks.

Hooks (so-called rynajza) are screwed to the eaves board, to the rafters or laths or attached to the wall. Each hook can be attached individually or pushed from the viewfinder to the rail attached to the roof structure. Hooks are assembled every 50 cm near corners, downpipes and hooks connectors, it is recommended to place them closer together.

Next, the hook is furthest away from the hopper, a strong line or line is stretched between them, then the hooks are set and fastened in such a way that the gutter falls: 2-5 cm per 1 m. The bottoms of the remaining hooks should be in line marked by the cable or a line.

Installation of the gutter

The installation of the gutters starts from the place farthest from the drain (without removing the taut string). We adjust the first gutter to the hooks and the end shows us where to insert the connector. Connect the connector to the gutter on the side of the building and then tighten it from the front. The hooks must be on both sides of the connector. Please remember not to slide the gutter into the connector because it may damage the gaskets.

The next step will be the assembly of outlets, after prior arrangement in which place the outlet will be mounted, you must mark with a black marker or pencil a circle to be cut. Please remember that the outlet is not an element connecting the gutters! Then cut the circle preferably to use a hand saw to create a hole in which water will be drained to the drain pipe.

When installing the outlet you need to consider whether we have a roof with eaves or without eaves, if we have a roof with eaves, it will be necessary to connect the outlet with a downpipe and a cut-down pipe cut to the appropriate length, if we have a roof without eaves, we mount the outlet directly to downpipe using a muff.

Joining two downpipes involves mounting a muff between them, remembering to leave a gap of about 1 cm which will be responsible for the proper operation of the system during temperature changes. The next step is to fasten the drain pipe to the walls using the clamps. The clamps are fastened with screws (dowels), the distance between the dowels must not
exceed 2 m. The task of the clamp is to keep the tube vertical, the clamp cannot be screwed tightly (it cannot squeeze the pipe).

At the end of the gutter system installation is draining water to the ground. At the end of the drain pipe, install a knee or spout, or insert a settling tank that drains water into the rainwater drainage system.
