UnderGround Downspout Extension

Posted: Thu, 16 Apr 2020

It is no secret that rain gutters play a very important role in protecting your house. Even if you already have regular or custom rain gutters, there is another accessory that you need in order to safeguard your home from water damage: UnderGround Downspout Extensions.

UnderGround Downspouts is an underground downspout diverter that collects roof water runoff and diverters the water away from your home’s foundation.

Proper water management around the foundation of your home can be very effective at keeping the water from reaching your basement. No maintenance needed! Rugged solid lid keeps grass clippings out and can withstand the weight of a riding lawnmower! Works seamlessly with any size or shape gutters, in warm and cold climates! UnderGround Downspout work with any style downspout. The universal debris filter is extra wide to accommodate any size downspout.

Water free falls into the debris filter and flows underground through the 8 feet of PVC pipe. As water fills up in the bubbler pot the lid raises up to let water evenly flow over onto your lawn. Drainage slots in the bubbler pot lets standing water filter down into the ground.

The solid drain cover will then drop down and seal out grass clippings and dirt. The center post guides and supports the lid from collapsing under the weight of a lawn mower and from being sucked up by a lawn mower. No more ugly downspouts laying across your lawn! Debris filter acts as an ice guard in cold, snowy climates. UnderGround Downspouts work year round in any climate and never need maintenance!

Be careful with pipes to nowhere
The pipe to nowhere creates a concentration of storm water on or in the ground around the foundation of a home and cause basement's problems. 

There’s the “looks good above the ground” pipe to nowhere that gives the appearance of an underground downspout extension but is nothing more than a piece of pipe sticking out of the ground.
