    Local builder contacted us today to install/trench 4" Hancor pipe for downspout drains. We have a trencher and would like to know what to charge per lineal foot on digging and installing these. Have a meeting scheduled for Friday, April 20th @ 10:00 A.M. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance for your assistance.

    I charge $125 each to bury each downspout, run 8-10 feet from the house, and exit via a bubbler attachment into the turf.

    Costs run around $10 for the black downspout adapter, elbow and 10' length of pipe. $10 more for the bubbler elbow. All available from depot or lowe's.

    For these short runs it's not worth using a machine.

    Long runs I charge the $125 for the above setup and $5 a foot for the extra run.
