Seamless copper gutters are the choice for many discerning consumers in San Diego Copper raingutters may be fabricated in various shapes and sizes including a crown moulding style, a sleek box style, and a half round style.

When it comes to copper gutters, the only way to effectively ensure no leaks is to solder any potential leak such as gutter corners, end caps, and outlets. Soldering copper gutters is an art form in itself and requires lots of experience and training to be done properly. This is why most companies use a sealant with their copper installations. I would recommend to always ask if the estimate includes soldering all of the joints in the gutter or not. This is a very important detail, not to be overlooked.
Whether you’re looking for durability and function, or you’re looking to add a new level of design and uniqueness to your project, copper gutters may be the product you need. Aquatech has proudly installed absolutely the most beautiful copper gutter systems in San Diego, without a doubt!

Gutter protection has become required in certain California areas for new construction. Recent wildfires taught officials that rain gutters clogged with debris pose a serious fire hazard. The dry material sits next to the roof line of the home in the gutters and is often the first thing to catch fire. Whether you have a newly constructed house or not, you should consider adding covers to your gutters to comply with regulations.

This gutter guard will filter out all debris from your gutter eliminating gutter cleaning forever.

Gutterglove Pro and Gutterglove Ultra consist of two components, a perforated aluminum channel and type 316 stainless steel mesh. The stainless steel mesh is glued into grooves along both sides of each 5 foot aluminum channel section. It installs on any existing gutter. Gutterglove’s specifications were designed so that it simply slips under the roof shingles and fits snuggly to the front lip of your gutter.
Aluminum Channel Frame:
The extruded aluminum support frame is anodized to further protect itself from the environment and to make it more adaptable to be installed on a copper gutter. The anodizing process converts the aluminum surface into an extremely hard, durable, corrosion resistant, long-lasting aluminum oxide finish. Anodized aluminum is used around the world as highly durable exteriors in commercial buildings such as one of the world’s tallest buildings, the Sears Tower in Chicago, Illinois. Gutterglove is the ONLY gutter guard in existence that uses an anodized extruded aluminum profile.
Stainless Steel Mesh:
The super-strong type 316 stainless steel mesh allows more than 150 inches of hourly rainfall to filter through to your gutter. Type 316 is molybdenum-bearing austenitic stainless steel which is more resistant to general corrosion and pitting/crevice corrosion than the conventional chromium nickel austenitic lower quality stainless steels such at types 302 and 304 or any other standard stainless steel alloys. The pots and pans manufacturers that are highly promoted at home and garden shows for their non-corrosive attributes are only type 304 stainless steel. The 316 alloy offers higher creep, stress-to-rupture and tensile strength at elevated temperatures. It also resists attack of marine and corrosive industrial atmospheres which makes it an ideal component for Gutterglove.
Whatever your budget allows, we have a product to help you cut down or eliminate gutter maintenance.
Rainwater Collection Systems
Water is one of the most critical resources we need to survive. Rainwater collection is a simple way for everyone to conserve high quality water and work towards a sustainable future. By harvesting rainwater, we can all bring about significant economic, social and environmental benefits. And it makes sense especially in San Diego. If you have 1000 sq feet of catchment area, every year 6000 gallons of water will shed off your roof and go to waste. Why not capture as much as possible.
The most popular choice among consumers is the rain barrel. These containers are attractive and can hold 50-65 gallons of water each. You can also link two or more barrels together to gain more capacity. These barrels are affordable and let you begin saving water immediately.
We also install narrow, streamlined 75 gallon tanks that fit perfectly along the side of your house or against a fence. These tanks are only 12″ wide and can be linked together to gain more capacity. The Aquadra tank is perfect for small space rain saving!
If its large capacity you want, we have the products to provide you with the ultimate water saving system available. With tanks from 205 gallon – 5000 gallon, and all of the filters, pumps and accesories needed, we can design and install a system to maximize the potential of rain water collection. Think, if you have a 3000 sq foot home, there is about 18,000 gallons water or more going to waste every year
