- Marley’s main issues with spouter systems is dubri blocking gutters. This is an issue that home owners have (residential housing) as well as commercial buildings. It is dependant on how many neighbouring trees, wind are open to the building. It is a tedious issue that does not have a fully functional solution. Usually resulting in someone on a ladder manually removing the dubri which is a safety issue and inconvenient.
- Marley is missing an opportunity to enter the ‘smart home’ market, they do not have any products within this area. There is an opportunity to create something new that may allow for home efficiency whether in water or power.
