American Manufacturer Makes History In Rainwater Harvesting
ROSEVILLE, California: Gutterglove announces that their manufactured gutter guards are the first in history to receive certification through Underwriters Laboratories (UL) for NSF P151 and NSF 372. There are over 100 gutter guards manufactured today, and this approval will allow their gutter covers to be the first to be used in potable rainwater harvesting systems.
Even with all the rains as of late, there will still be a growing demand for water conservation practices and sustainable eco-friendly green products. Gutter guard inventor and CEO of Gutterglove, Robert Lenney, is glad to provide approved National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) protocols for his gutter covers to the public.
“Our stainless steel gutter guards act as a pre-filtration for rainwater catchment because they keep leaves, pine needles and small debris out of the gutter and rainwater collection tanks,” says Lenney. “Another great feature is that homeowners will never have to clean their gutters out again.”
People associate the globally recognized UL label with electronic devices, but they also provide testing and certification to NSF standards and protocols. NSF P151covers the health effects from rainwater catchment system components and NSF 372 covers lead content analysis.
President of the American Rainwater Catchment Systems Association (ARCSA), David Crawford, describes that the rainwater catchment industry and product suppliers have grown in the last few years.
“We are proud to support our members that are making great strides to move the industry forward as Gutterglove has with their precedent setting UL approval for NSF protocols related to gutters used for rainwater harvesting,” replies Crawford.
The gutter guards manufactured by Gutterglove are made primarily of stainless steel micro-mesh and will keep out leaves, pine needles and tiny roof sand grit from your gutter. The two primary benefits of the gutter covers are that you will never have to clean your gutters again and they can be used on a potable rainwater harvesting system where rainwater’s end use is for human consumption such as drinking and cooking.
Gutterglove recently moved from a 22,000 square foot facility in Rocklin California to a 43,000 square foot facility in Roseville California, with a growth rate of over 100% from 2015 through 2016. With the significant growth of the Gutterglove company, due to expansion into Costco, Home Depot and over a hundred roofing and gutter supply stores, the additional space was very much welcomed.

Health Effects From Rainwater Catchment System Components has the following scope.
Scope: This testing covers gutters, barrier materials and/or catchment surfaces (coatings, paints, lining and liners) placed on roof tops and ground surfaces that come in contact with rainwater that is collected and used as drinking water.
ANSI/NSF 372 contains the lead content evaluation procedure originally detailed in ANSI/NSF 61 Annex G, as well as testing requirements and methodologies for material lead content analysis. The scope of the standard applies “to any drinking water system component that conveys or dispenses water for human consumption through drinking or cooking”.
