Down spouts


Are there any down spout fittings that I can buy that will go around a corner? Here is a photo of what I'm looking for. I suspect that I will have to crimp my own fittings.

I've never seen anything pre-made like that. It's easy enough to put together out of stock pieces, though.

are you looking for square downspout? It is not very difficult to make yourself. Surprisingly I have never seen pre made fittings like that.

I'll probably experiment against a wooden box with a series of elbows like a flat 45, then regular 90, then another flat 45 down. Aluminum seems easy to manipulate. It just may not look as pretty as I would like.

That is just stupid. Choose a side of the building to run down and stick with it.

When remodeling and doing additions you often run into unique problems. Obviously if this were new construction I wouldn't do that. But since I added a high deck, one diagonal section under a cantilever is now at eye level and needs to be moved. I suppose I could reposition the drain by drilling a new hole in the gutter and pluging up the old to get around the corner.

Your picture appears to be PVC. 2 45, one 90 and a couple of stubs. You can easily do it in aluminum as well. I have seen flexible stuff that can be bent any which way at Menards but it looks way too down home for me.

Plenty of ways to effectively do this in aluminum. Look for a B elbow.
