New construction, are these used when the downspouts run into a french drain system and if the drainage system gets full the water runs out onto the landscaping? my guess…Anyone have a good pic/drawing of this type of system i can add to my report?
Think direction of flow… backflow. If like in the other three, it would be easier for discharge even if not backed up. Not a big deal, but I know of a few clients that may have a fit over it due to the discharge being at the foundation wall, thus the assist of the splashblocks! :roll:
Man…I struggled with this…I would say the one on the right in the first pic is correct…since it seems to be designed for over flow if the underground stuff clogged up. So the way the elbow is joined would accommodate that (the first pic, one on the right.

Part of the rainwater might escape with the outlet curve on the top (left). It will also be easier to clean out/snake with the curve on the bottom (right).
Speaking of Jeff causing eye glazing, I will be the last one to reply, someday, as I don’t want to be blinded, I need my eyesight intact as a newbie HI:p Getting sick to my stomach or constant daydream fantasies… some kind of unnatural conflation, AAAAAAAAHH! / aaaaaaaahhh
Should do a youtube of an unsuspecting HI apprentice looking through Last One to Repy Wins for the first time:D
Kind of a clever system, actually. The Tees appear to be an overflow for when the ground is frozen, so I don’t see that it makes a whole lot of difference which way they’re installed, although I’d like to see an extension instead of a splash block installed.
