Need Help with downpipes


Ednic

Recommended Posts

Hi guys 

This house has soil filled downpipes down to the neck and welded. The one above the porch I can't get to anyway, how would you get to it? Climb on the porch roof? I can get to the other downpipe but what can I do to clear it without being able to pop the neck off?

 

Many thanks

Ed

Looks like you might be able to clear it with the vac just keep plugging away at it it takes a fair bit of experience to learn how to do it , make sure it’s nice and wet and keep plugging away it should break it up and pull out chunks .

What's the best way to make the soil wet? Is there a way of blowing water from the vac?

Cable tie garden hose to a pole and soak the gutters with that or fix your wfp to the outside tap and use that .
