A Glorious Victory……

Gavith Nimdiya Gammampila, a member of the New Inventors Club of D.S. Senanayake College has won the Silver Medal of 6th International Young Inventors Award – 2019 for his invention “Gutter Water Removing Tool” among 15 countries which was held in Indonesia from 9th to 12th October.

Dengue, Malaria, Chikungunya (CHIKV) etc. are fatal diseases spread by mosquitoes. Gutters are common mosquito breeding grounds. Cleaning gutters can be difficult and dangerous, as people would have to climb up the roof. Gavith invented this tool as a solution for this problem. He got this idea while his father was cleaning the gutter.

This invention consists of a sponge roller, small razor, mirror and an adjustable handle. The sponge roller rolling inside the gutter and it absorbs the residual water. A mirror is fixed to it and the water in the gutter can be viewed from this mirror. The handle can be adjusted to any height. After that can squeeze out the water.
