We live in the Southern California Desert, so we are lucky if we get 1" of rain every year. So with that said, this is mostly used to collect and divert water splashed out of the pool and hose water off of concrete patios. For this application, it is by far the best value.
I installed 60' of the Micro Channel on one project and 45' on another. Both went the entire length of the patio and after three years, the first one still looks brand new (as does the second one which was just finished).
Each piece of the Micro Channel comes with this Coupling, but when you need extra for various reasons, they are handy to have.
The bottom drain outlet worked great (you will need a 1 1/2" Female PVC Coupling to connect the PVC to this). When small debris end up inside this piece, the water can get backed up. Although it only takes the hose with a stream nozzle right against the top of this piece to dislodge anything, and clear the back up.
Also, this is PVC, so typical PVC Glue works great which is a huge plus!
