Tired of having that unsightly 4" landscape pipe, that's hooked to
your downspout, snaking across your lawn?
Bury it and send to the box, DRAINBOX®!
Rain water travels down the downspout and continues underground through the 4 inch
landscape pipe into the DRAINBOX®.
- No unsightly drain pipes
- Flush mount for mowing ease
- Discharges water evenly for erosion control
- Easy installation
- Top of box is 5.25" x 6.25" x 7.75" tall
- 4" Landscape pipe fits into the hole in the side of the box
Rain water enters DRAINBOX® and seeps out the bottom holes.
Heavy rain? The lid lifts up to allow overflow to discharge.
The gutter system on your house is designed to catch and remove water from the roof
and the down spouts are to 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' or more, 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 just where you don't want it. So now to go
along with your erosion problem you have a great possibility of having water (or
moisture) under your house. If you already have a "water under the house"
problem and your gutters aren't piped off away from the house, that could be the
Some folks try to correct the problem by running 4" corrugated pipe along on
top of the ground from the downspouts. This indeed gets the water away from the
foundation but it looks bad having those pipes lying all over the lawn not to
mention the aggravation of trying to mow around them. You also still have the
erosion problem. You can run the pipes underground to the street curbs or to the
property line but this is usually very expensive and may be against regulations in
some areas. There is also a lot of labor involved.
These problems can be corrected by running the 4" pipe underground
a minimal distance from the house (usually 8 ft. or so) and installing
a DRAINBOX® at the end of that pipe.
By using DRAINBOX® on all downspouts,
these problems are corrected in a way that:
- Looks good - all that is visible after DRAINBOX®
is installed is a 4" square lid that is flush to the top of the ground.
All pipes are underground out of the way.
- Requires less work and money - Since DRAINBOX®
enables you to terminate your drainpipes at any point, you save money and time
by not going all the way to the curb or property line.
- Keeps rodents and snakes out - DRAINBOX®
totally encloses your gutter system (with the lid) making it almost impossible
for pests to enter.
- Virtually eliminates erosion - By design,
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.
Another great feature of DRAINBOX® is that it is
so simple to install that most any homeowner can apply them to his or her home
in a single weekend. The only tool that is needed is a shovel. No special
fittings or glue are needed.
DRAINBOX® is inexpensive and is a permanent
solution as it is manufactured of high density, UV stabilized plastic. A great
weekend project that adds value and good looks to your home.
