    How can I tell if my gutter is leaking?

    Drainage Specialists

    Hi! I’d just like to know, how can I tell exactly where a leak is in my guttering if I suspect there is one? Is it easy and okay to fix it myself?

    "The leak is more than likely where two length of guttering join together or where the guttering meets the downpipe. I wouldn’t recommend fixing this yourself as it involves working at height which could be dangerous if not done safely."

    "You would. see if it was leaking and if so it may be on the joints where there is a seal which has most probably perished you could fix if you were OK with heights and had a long enough ladder"
