Nah, I'm not making a late run for the 'Most Bizarre Thread Title Of The Year'... :lol: I was walking into the town centre the other day and noticed a 'downpipe sock' (for lack of a better word) on a house I went past. There are a lot of older style houses up here (mine is one) which don't divert stormwater collected in the downpipes to a drain system...the water just flows out onto the ground via an extended piece of pipe directing it away from the house. I was going to put in an ag drain (pipe with holes in the top so it can collect water from above and divert it), but I do like the idea of being able to change where it is diverted to - something not fixed. Obviously ideally I'd buy three more watertanks for the downpipes not hooked to one already, but we're moving soon (when the darn house sells!) and it's not a good outlay of cash at this point from that point of view...and with all the rain we get it would just need to overflow somewhere anyway. So...has anyone ever made or seen a downpipe sock? Any ideas on making a good one? I'd bash on the door of the place which I saw had one, but it's not occupied and jumping the fence for a better look wouldn't tell me whether that particular design actually worked well or not. Thanks in advance for any input.
