Downspout Drain Systems

Here is a realistic and inexpensive way to take care of roof drainage water. It's not fancy, but it tends to work as well, if not better, than the expensive interior or exterior perimeter drain system.

I have seen this type of system make a dramatic difference in most existing homes with wet basements. It is of greatest value when it replaces old concrete or clay in-ground drain systems, where an off-site system in not available or in homes without any downspout drain system.
