Rain gutter types/brands for Atlanta

Hi, I'm putting rain gutters on my new old house to keep water away from the foundation and siding, and I'm wondering if anyone has any strong feeling towards one type or another (or one brand or another). I live in Atlanta where rain is plentiful, and with many trees in my yard, leaves will be too, so I want to get gutters that are screen or just a small slit for the water to enter so I'm not having to climb up on a ladder and clean them out frequently. I found one website for an interesting one that "disperses" the water into small drops instead of having it gush out--what do you all think? http://www.rainhandler.com/?referrer=source Thanks, Kirsten

That's not going to keep water away from your foundation. It just sprinkles it over an 8 or 10 inch band, but it is still almost straight down from the eaves. If you want the water away from the house, you have to use gutters with down spouts and proper tiling to carry the water away from the house. I live in the Atlanta area also, and I have my down spouts empty into 6 inch tile that runs underground and opens well down the slope from the house. Never had any water in basement in 38 years.
