What is downpipe?

Downpipe is the piping that drains water out of your gutters. It plays a very important role in drainage and if improperly installed it can lead to property damage.

Downpipe is typically installed along with guttering. It is designed to work as a complete system to allow for fast and easy drainage of water. It directs the flow and ensures it goes into the correct storm water drains.

When downpipe breaks down, water will build up in the gutters as it cannot drain away. This can lead to water damage on your property and is why we recommend having adequate downpipe installed.

Why would I need downpipe installed?

Typically, downpipe is installed during construction of your property. It is an integral part of the drainage system of your house. You may need more downpipe installed if you have had an extension built recently or if you are noticing that your gutters are often overflowing.

You may also need new downpipe installed if your existing system becomes damaged beyond repair. This can occur if damage is not repaired quickly or if blockages cause the piping to burst.

As it is a legal requirement to ensure that storm water run-off is properly drained, downpipe is a good way of getting peace of mind that your house is compliant. ACE+ have a team of fully qualified professionals who can quickly and easily install downpipe on your property.

Can I install downpipe myself?

The DIY route is not recommended for downpipe installation. The reason being that it is such an integral part of your property’s drainage system and a small mistake can become a costly repair. Worse still, if you install it incorrectly it may not be immediately apparent. You might only discover the mistake when water damage occurs.

Why would I need downpipe repairs?

Downpipe is exposed to the elements, especially storm water. The wear and tear it suffers during the rainy season can lead to blockages and erosion. Over time, this can lead to the pipe rusting or breaking. Repairing the pipe is cheaper than replacing it but does require catching the damage early.
