Its not technical but it works and looks better then the usual tube.

Under the stone is a tray made of aluminum sheet metal. It is fabricated to match the wooden trough made of the treated 2x4's. The landscape border has holes cut in it to let the water flow out.

Sorry John, but Homesafe has already patented the idea of using a tray to divert water. I'm afraid that you'll have to pay them for the right to keep using those.

. . . Too close to the building? How many feet away from the building do you usually recommend? I personally recommend that the downspout rejects it's water at least 4 feet away from the building!

If the discharge doesn't extend past the original excavation from the time of the foundation installation, then it's just going to dump its water into fill; the water will run straight down to the bottom of the cut and then spread laterally, possibly under the foundation.

You want the water to discharge at least a few feet beyond that fill.

Emptying waaay too close to the building for my comfort. I'd have put in some bubbler pots.

At least six feet for the reason that Jim cites.

It's not as revolutionary as the plywood drip pan for water heaters, but it looks highly functional to me. [^]

Is Patent Leather Patented? [?]

Brian, just what the Doctor ordered on a Saturday morning - a plywood drip pan and wild wallpaper!

To you newer TIJ's, wallpaper, camera lenses, drip pans all hold a special place on this forum!
