Gutter Extensions & Discharge Lines FAQs
Are gutter extensions necessary?
Yes. Gutter extensions prevent water from pouring at the base of your foundation.
How far should rain gutters extend from my house?
At least 20 feet.
Why does rainwater go behind my gutters?
It’s possible that your gutters are clogged with leaves and debris. Make sure you clean them often.
What is the best gutter extension?
The Real Seal uses Schedule 35 PVC pipes, and we stand by our materials.
Should my gutter extension go into the ground?
Yes. Placing them underground conceals them and prevents them from being damaged.
Where do I discharge my sump pump water?
We place bubbler pots at the end of our discharge lines and gutter extensions. This allows water to be deposited into a lower part of your property.
How far can you run a sump pump discharge line?
We always recommend running discharge lines at least 20 feet away from your home and foundation.
How deep should a sump pump discharge line be buried?
We bury our discharge lines right below your grass.
Can I discharge my sump pump into the street?
Some municipalities do allow you to connect your discharge lines into the street storm sewer with a solid connection. This typically requires a permit and evaluation from the city.
