The Bushfire Buddy

The Bushfire Buddy by Gutter Block is the best way to protect your home from ember attack. When your home is threatened by airborne embers, you don’t have time to block your gutters using awkward methods like tennis balls or sand bags, or time to climb a ladder to install them. You need to be fully prepared so that you can block your gutters easily in an emergency situation.

The Bushfire Buddy fits easily to your standard 90mm circular downpipes and can be installed at any height so that anyone, including the elderly and disabled, can easily access it in times of emergency. With a turn of the red lever on each device your downpipes are sealed water-tight and you can flood your gutters with water using your installed sprinkler system or using a hose.

The Bushfire Buddy is easy to install yourself by following the instructions provided by Gutter Block, or you can contact a plumber or roofing contractor to do the work. The Bushfire Buddy is covered by a 10-year warranty.
