Step 1: Cut 2 lengths of pipe Cut 2 6-inch lengths of pipe from the 10-foot section with your saw. Step 2: Glue the short sections Use PVC cement to connect the 2 small sections to one of the 90-degree elbows. Tip Dry-fit the sections together before gluing to make sure they fit snugly. Step 3: Connect the other elbow Join one of the ends of one of the small sections to the other 90-degree elbow with PVC cement. Step 4: Connect the long piece Connect the remaining 10-foot section of PVC pipe to the open end of the 90-degree elbow to form a long, J-shaped hook and glue a solid end cap to the short end of the hook. Then drill 3 1/8-inch-diameter holes in the cap. Step 5: Attach a hose adapter Glue a threaded adapter onto the opposite end of the pipe and attach your garden hose. Step 6: Clean the gutter Place the short end of the hook inside your gutter and then turn on the water. Walk around the house holding the long end of the hook and three high-pressure streams of water will shoot out of the holes you drilled, cleaning the gutters. Did You Know?
