    I have a customer that is wanting me to run his downspouts into the ground.
    I have never done this before and it does not appear difficult but I need to know some details please. Like how far to run it from the house and if you would have to run it under a walkway what would be the best way to run it under the cement. Basically the best way to achieve the best result. Thank you.

    Who says you gotta day light them... possibly tie them all together and dump them in a drain box.. this will perc the water into the ground

    we like to day light them, but not always possible/pratical. Dry well could blow the budget, pop up emiters work well in some cases.

    I like to daylight them also. Dry well is fine but more money and depends on the owner.
