I question the Rain Dispersal system. While it may be nice for some applications. Such as sheds, garages, winter ice build up, etc. I don't think it is good for spring rains. It may save your landscape, but the rain isn't getting far enough away from your foundation. Most people recommend putting your downspouts 10 feet away from your house. How far does a Rain Dispersal system get from the foundation?

I am sure it does the job it says it does. As cheap as gutters are to have installed I would stick with those if you have a basement or crawl space.

The Rain Dispersal systems only disperses water 2-3 feet from the edge of your roofline. I don't know if that is enough to keep water away from your foundation. As opposed to nothing, I would imagine it would help in areas that tend to pool water. Then again, regrading would do the trick too.
