Hi there,

you could try removing the shoe from the end of the pipe and adding a universal connection to the end that goes into the ground. Once you have added the connector, you can add a 1m length of rain pipe to the connection and divert the rainwater to the drain.

You would need to purchase some new brackets to attach the new diversion to the wall.

Hope this helps.

It's always best to dig a trench and connect underground. There are many different pipe connections out there to achieve the best route and flow. Do you have any photographs of the area? Best regards.

Sounds like its not providing any decent drainage and waters sitting in the ground, You could get a joint to fit to the bottom of the pipe and continue a pipe to divert the water to the drain. Or if there is concrete below instead of it being a trip hazard create a recess in the concrete to divert the water into the drain. Alternatively you could dig down 500mm and 500mm wide and fill the area full of chippings creating whats known as a soak away allowing the water to drain below the outhouses level.

There should be a shoe attached to the bottom of the downpipe which you can turn left or right to divert the water or create a channel for the water to run from the downpipe to the drain

Yes an offset bend and length of downpipe would be the simplest way to tackle this problem ,or a barrel of sorts to catch the rainwater which then can be used to water your garden flowers or grass if you have any ..
