Digging with a shovel is hard work
I needed to tell someone besides my wife and friends. Digging up old downspout lines that no longer function is not a fun week.
Just me and my shovel. Around 2/3 done, I need to get it finished so I can install the new 4" PVC. I called 3 places with no return call, next door neighbor said they couldnt get anyone a couple years ago to do anything without a trencher.
No thank you.
Don't they rent out mini excavators or walk behind trenchers? Might be easier than digging manually.
Use schedule 40 instead of the thin crap they want to sell you. I recommend cleanouts it each downspout too.
WingKKF I dont think I could have used it for more than a couple of places plus it would been logistically difficult to get it to my house cheaply.
Bill do you mean physically connected to the downspout or just a T right after the downspout? I have access around every 50 ft so I was contemplating no clean outs. Any input is greatly appreciated. I am planning on measuring and getting my parts list to take to the supply house tonight. I had planned on SCH 40 if available. I called around to 3 places to just find some 4 inch pipe. They didn't specify rating but price was 21.50 for 20ft so I'll find out tomorrow when I call. My other alternative is big box and it is way more cash almost double.
The above with a few crushed pipes is what I found. Clean them a couple times a years guys. That's my plan once I get everything installed.
