I need to extend my downspouts to take water away from the house.
The problem is the frost line is 48inches down here and that's going to take a long time to dig with a shovel.
Could I just bury the pipe 6-12 inches under and then put a de-icing cable inside it for the winter?
What's the best way to do this? I saw a post on TOH but it advocates extending the gutter along the house underground - that won't work as it will freeze at exit and clog up the pipe.
I also saw a drywell option but I suspect that may also freeze.
The gutters have deicing cable in winter so melt water needs to go somewhere.
