Yes, you should have any available shape fitting in 4" pipe. You can either connect below ground with the pipes, or above up higher with the gutters (but I've never looked for a prefab gutter wye, I usually see them custom made).

Re: Area under deck gets muddy, what to fill with?


I found another drain from my roof. It's been bypassed and i took a look
There is a buried piece that still runs water(i put a hose in for 10 min)... never overflowed though i never could find where it drained off lol.

I wanna remove green plastic bypass and connect using that white connector.

Issue is that ground piece is stuck i can't even dig there it's rocky and near foundation. It's crushed a bit.

I plan to straighten with a snip and do my best after which wanna cover it with a 4 inch PVC and fill the gaps. So rain water doesn't leak.

How to fill gaps between PVC round shape and this aluminum rectangle shape?

What other option i have since i can't dig it out?

Usually a drain like that has been abandoned for a reason., do you have a basement of crawlspace?

I would expect whoever changed that downspout did it for good reason I would cap off the pipe with the crushed top.

When you have water issues in the crawlspace or basement the first thing you do is divert the down spout, just like you found.

My neighbor and i never had water issues leaking into basement. But when I ran the hose for like 10 solid min i couldn't see where it went downhill where there's a lot of grass now.

I did find the other downspout (from my 1st post) where it went downhill about 35 feet away. It was a black drain tube the corrugated plastic. When i ran hose it was flowing slowly....(gotta clean that with a line soon)

So the builder did these originally for all downspouts.
