not sure if this is the right place for this question but I finally bought a rain barrel - 40 gallons I think.
I wanted to place it under the drain sprout at the back of our home. We'd have to cut the existing pipe, attach a curve or 'S' shape for all to drain into barrel.
Hon says, "No". Hon wants to keep the drain as it is now (at ground level) but add a piece to angle upwards.
So the water goes down to the usual ground level but then goes up then down again into the barrel.
I dont think Hons idea is good. First im not sure gravity will "permit" water to just be averted upwards unless there is extreme pressure like a very heavy torrential down pour. Then I worry about debris collecting at the lower level causing clogging and backing up of water too.
need some advise about all of this
- before Hon does it their way, we get problems and the rain barrel & I get blamed!
