Downspout routing. Please help.


I am looking for ways to route a downspout from a gutter. With the deck steps below, I cannot lay it along the closest wall as is the case with drainage systems.

Was wondering if I can use three bends before clamping it against an open stretch of wall (pls see pic). Do I need to use some sort of hangar to support the the elbow in the middle (Elbow B)?
Or is there any other way to route it?
Appreciate some help.

Thanks,
CJ

Is there an overhang where the gutter ends?

Hi,

You will be fine. You do not need a support.

Thanks LeftyHo.
Framer53, there is an overhang. The gutter runs along the fascia board, that ends above elbow B.

If the overhang extens far enough you can eliminate the one elbow, othewise you will be fine.

Sure thing Framer53. It is just that the overhang is not much.
Thanks for all the suggestions.
