I have a clay pipe coming up in my yard next to my house to accept the downspout.
That clay pipe is cracked. I have replaced this in the past. But I can't find clay pipe in Pittsburgh.
Is there another solution?
I was thinking of REMOVING the cracked clay drain pipe and just repace it with PVC and just set the PVC section (about 2-3 feet of PVC) right on the section of clay drain pipe in the ground.
The clay pipe in the ground is 5 inches OUTSIDE DIAMETER. Then the section flares out to accept a section of clay pipe.
So I was thinking PVC drain pipe I see at the home center could be cut to length and set right on top?
Is this a dumb idea?
