Rainwater Hoppers

Rainwater Hoppers

Rainwater hoppers are a great option for collecting rainwater in their garden. They can be installed on your house's guttering and allow you to use that water for various purposes.

Rainwater hoppers are available in several shapes and sizes and can be designed to match your existing guttering. They come in both aluminium and cast iron. The main difference between them is in the material used to make them.

Aluminium Hoppers

Aluminium is an excellent choice for rainwater hoppers because it is lightweight and easy to install and move around. It’s also weather-resistant, which means that it can last for many years without becoming damaged by rust or corrosion. Aluminium is also very durable and robust against impact damage, making aluminium hoppers a great choice.

Cast Iron Hoppers

Cast iron has been used for over 100 years as a material for rainwater hoppers thanks to its durability and strength properties. However, the weight may sometimes make it challenging to move around the cast iron hoppers once installed on your roof, which can mean that you need help from a professional installer if you want to change locations in future years. Cast iron hoppers are available 'transit primed' or painted black.

Factors to Consider When Choosing Hopper Heads

When choosing a hopper head for gutters, there are many factors to consider. The following are some of the most important factors when choosing hopper heads:

Gutter Head Size

The first thing to consider is the size of your gutter. If you have an older home with smaller gutters and downpipes, you will want to choose a small hopper head that can handle smaller amounts of water. For newer homes with larger gutters, it may be best to choose a larger hopper head that can handle more water at once.

Gutter Length

It would be best to consider how far your gutters are spaced apart on your roof line. For example, suppose they have spread out farther apart than normal due to structural issues or other issues. In that case, it is important to consider this when choosing hopper heads so they can handle the extra distance between each opening along your roof line.

So, suppose they are closer together than normal due to structural or other issues. In that case, it may be better to use a larger hopper for enough capacity for all of them simultaneously instead of having multiple smaller ones.


There are many different materials used in making hopper heads. Each material has its advantages and disadvantages, so it’s important to weigh them before deciding which type of material best suits the needs of your property.
