Anyone ever used this?
It's an under deck drain system.

They called me today asking if I wanted
to have my name on their web site
as an approved installer. :blink::shifty:
I never heard of them before. :confused1::laughing:

You to huh?

I got a very very slow talking message today that was a pain to listen to. I couldn't tell if it was a computer generated message or if it was a real woman.
She was real, reading a script.
I was buzzing down the interstate
so she had to repeat every time
I passed a semi. :laughing:

I have used it on a few decks. They are located here in Columbia Maryland. They are local for me and I gave it a try. I haven't had any callbacks on this product and in some cases it is a great solution vs dryspace, underdeck and drysnap. Basically I hate all of them. A torchdown roof should be considered first before looking into these products.

I couldn't agree more with those two statements. If all a customer wants is to be dry under their deck then use metal roofing, it looks as good as any of those plastic gutters & a lot less $. If they want high end finished look go with torch down.

Neo, you're a lot nicer than me, you actually talked to the salesperson. As soon as I figure out it's an unwanted sales call, click.

That was what I was thinking. I usually ignore calls from far away area codes. It is rarely a customer, mostly a salesman wanting me to buy a box of 150 saw blades or 1000 sawzaw blades.

caller ID.
Think was she sounded like a girl
from a plumbing supply I had talked to
the day before.

its actually EDPM liner. the stuff is pretty bullet proof. you can buy sheet stock at any pond equipment store or else order it online and have it shipped to your door. as far as leaks, that basically comes down to the install. if you build it leak proof it will stay leak proof.
