Underground Downspout Extensions
Hi all. I'm wanting to install quite a bit of underground downspout extensions on one of my properties. It will connect to 3 downspouts on the right side of my house and 2 in the back yard. Then I'll run it out to the back edge of my property. I want to use the 4" corex pipe. I think it will be about 150' in all.
It seems like it is a rather simple project, just a lot of labor, but probably I am overlooking many things. So I'd like to ask you guys if you could provide a few pointers that are commonly overlooked. Should I install cleanouts? If so, where and how many? Should I install some type of strainer or filter? Or perhaps leaf screen would do the trick? What type of drain exit should be considering? Any other advice?
