Just inspected my Seamless Fascia Guttering System (image indicative of mine) today for the first time since buying as I noticed that grass was growing out of one corner. On full inspection and wash through, discovered I have two 'neutral zones' (one outside corner & one inside corner) where there is no slope towards any drop outlets. Both zones are on opposite sides of the house. One zone (outside corner), where the grass was, is very easy to clean. The other zone (inside corner) is tucked away in the far back corner of the patio roof and a right bugger to get to.

 

Is there any "simple" way to put a slope on these two zones or am I just going to have to suck it up and get up there a couple times a year with the jet hose ?

At the beach I find that sand will sit on the bottom of the gutter even when there's a considerable flow of water. Hosing only works if the water is directed at the edge of the sand to stir it up.

Nothing "easy" that I know of.

 

Either put up with it and apply regular maintenance now that you know about it.

 

Or you need to either rehang the guttering or add a down pipe outlet at those points.  Both have the potential for being problematic.

 

I managed to add an additional downpipe on one point of mine that teed into an existing one round the corner (some muppet (me) measured off the bargeboards and didn't actually sight the fact that there was a significant droop in one section).
