Tired of having that unsightly 4" pipe, snaking across your lawn? Bury it and send to the box, DRAINBOX!

The gutter on your house is designed to catch and move water from the roof. The downspouts direct the column of water away from the foundation. This system works well as far as collecting the water, but that is where the problem begins. Since the water has now been concentrated into a 4" tube and has a vertical fall of 8' +, erosion is likely. Not only do you have an erosion problem; all the water that your gutter system has so efficiently gathered is now dumped right at the foundation! So now to go along with your erosion problem you have a great possibility of having water under your house. Some folks try to correct the problem by running 4" corrugated pipe along on top of the ground. This indeed gets the water away from the foundation but it looks ugly. Not to mention the aggravation of trying to mow around them. You can run the pipes underground to the property line but this is usually very expensive and maybe against regulations in some areas.

Run the 4" pipe underground, usually 10ft. and install DRAINBOX at the end of that pipe. By using DRAINBOX on downspouts, these problems are corrected in a way that: Looks good - what is visible after DRAINBOX is installed is a lid that is flush to the top of the ground. Pipes are underground out of the way. Requires less work and money - DRAINBOX enables you to terminate your drainpipes at any point, you save money and time by not going all the way to the property line. Keeps rodents and snakes out - DRAINBOX totally encloses your gutter system making it difficult for pests to enter. Virtually eliminates erosion - DRAINBOX turns the stream of rushing water back into itself causing a churning effect inside the box. When the water exits the DRAINBOX it is merely seeping posing no erosion problems at all. DRAINBOX is simple to install.

A shovel is all you need.
