The Rainhandler gutter is a state-of-the-art rain dispersal system invented by an M.I.T. aeronautical engineer. Now improved with three more patents, the Rainhandler gutter provides superior dispersal and strength. For two decades thousands of American homeowners have replaced messy and unsafe gutters and downspouts by installing the modern RainhandleR gutter, the proven and practical system for rainwater dispersal – never clean or maintain an old fashioned rain gutter again. It’s unique Rainhandler gutters louver design allows leaves and debris to blow or wash away. Rainhandler Gutter self-cleaning dispersal system eliminates clogged, over-flowing gutters and downspouts. No ground erosion. No more destructive ice dams from frozen gutters. The Rainhandler Gutter self-cleaning system protects you from the need to climb ladders and roofs to clean clogged gutters. No gutters, downspouts, leaders or splash blocks to detract from the natural beauty of your home.

Savetime Corporation was founded in June 1990 when Ted Buckenmaier purchased the Rainhandler rain disperser system from Dick Schapker. A few years earlier, Schapker, an MIT Engineering graduate had a ladder accident while cleaning his old fashioned gutter system. Believing there had to be a better way, Schapker invented and patented the original Rainhandler rain disperser. At the time Schapker was living in Massachusetts, but has since retired to Santa Barbara, California.

From 1990 to 1993, over a quarter million dollars were invested in research and development to further improve Rainhandler performance. The result was the Rainhandler Plus, with curved louvers rather then flat slats. This new Rainhandler improved dispersion by 30% and proved to be 20% stronger than the original Rainhandler. Two patents were issued as a result of this improved design and performance.

In 1994, the company moved to its present location in Bridgeport, CT. In addition to being company headquarters, all manufacturing and shipping facilities are located here. The product is 100% made in the USA and our average employee has over 10 years of service with the company. We are long time members of the Connecticut Business and Industry Association, the Bridgeport Business Council and the Better Business Bureau. Rainhandlers are actively marketed by authorized Distributors in Europe and Canada. We have more than half a million satisfied users throughout the United States and many foreign countries. We look forward to the opportunity to add you to this long list of satisfied Rainhandler System owners.
