12 in. Low Profile Catch Basin Downspout Extension

$ 19 97

Overview

The Amerimax Stealth Drain Low Profile Catch Basin allows you to move damaging rainwater away from your home with the look of a buried drainage system, without the cost. The low profile design creates an unobtrusive look and can be covered with mulch, straw or stones for a subtle appearance, with no digging required. Simply cut the included 8 ft. L of 2 in. pipe to your desired length, screw into the supplied drain holes, extend the pipe to direct the rainwater in your desired direction, and bury under mulch, stone, or pine straw. Be sure to utilize both drain holes when utilizing under a 3 in. x 4 in. downspout due to increased water volume.

Questions & Answers

Can you bury part of the 2in pipe under 1/2 inch of soil?

Asked by: Edgewalker
I would say yes. I didn't bury mine, but I did cover it with mulch.

I just purchased this product and was excited to find just what I needed. Unfortunately the holes are much smaller than the hose that is supposed to fit into it. Are there parts missing?
Asked by: Barb
No. You have to use quite a bit if strength and turning so its snug and doesn't leak. I couldn't do it so I gave it to my husband and he did it.

Unlike the larger 3"-4" drainage piping, I did not see any additional piping or connectors available at Home Depot

12 in. Low Profile Catch Basin Downspout Extension is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 61.

I was looking for a basin like this but everything I was looking at cost $50 up to $200+ and used the large 4-6" hoses. The one that used a 3 in hose was over $200. Even though I'm concerned about the size of this one keeping up with the flow in a Texas downpour, I found it very reasonably priced. Some of comments hit it for it's lack of sturdiness. You just paid $20 for it. It's sturdy enough for the price and if there is a concern with someone stepping on the center and breaking it, I plan to cut 2" PVC, perforate it and sit it in the cent for support. Could they have done that? Yes, but not for $20. The other concern I had was with the complaint about the hose that comes with it. Hard to install and nothing longer than the 8' that comes with it. I modified the basin to fit the length 2" hose I will need and shared it in photos below. In my case, I only had one situation where I needed longer than 8'.

The original intent of this product is to dig it underneath the ground and then have two exits where they water can drain into the ground while buried. I needed something else because I had a drain spout that had eroded enough soil at an incline that there was over a 9 inch gap it to the ground. I didn't want to have to buy more pieces to add to the existing spout so the idea was to place the box which is about 3-4 inches high directly underneath the spout and to use only one of the two holes (plastic provided for one to cover) and decrease the distance from the spout to the ground after additional soil was added to address erosion. The idea worked! The only negative and why I am giving this product an average rating is that the drain tubing doesn't easily thread into the existing holes on either end. I tried following the instructions which were pretty basic and so did my adult son and then his father. It took a lot of patience (and some brute force) to finally threat the pipe in the hole. It shouldn't have taken 3 different adults trying to complete this simple task!

It installs easily, whether keeping it above or flush with ground level. There is one improvement that I would recommend to the manufacturer. The grate openings are a little too large and allow in debris large enough to block the outflow. I ended up getting some plastic screen mesh and attaching it to the cover so that large debris (i.e., bigger leaves, etc.) could not get it in. Now I just lift the cover or blow the debris off when things get cluttered. No more backup overflow.

Perfect for what I needed - to divert downspout flow without using connectors that make a 90 - 120 degree turn difficult. I only needed one open hole so I was very happy it came with one hole open and the other can be popped out if needed. Comes with 8 ft of collapsible hose.

This was easily placed under our downspout with the hose installed in a shallow ditch under ground cloth and overlayed with bark. The hose diameter seems a bit small; so time will tell if it will be able to handle the volume of a good rain.
