Re: How to upgrade gutter downpipe?

Hello @Honest52 


Thanks for sharing your question about your downpipe. There are two ways to upgrade your gutter down pipe. If you wish to change your downpipe to round PVC, I propose using a Stormwater Downpipe Adaptor. This will allow you to directly connect either a 90mm or 100mm PVC downpipe.


The other option is to upgrade the exit point of your gutter with an Abey Australia 100mm Round Downpipe Pops and then changing over to the round PVC downpipes. You'll also need pipe saddles to hold the pipe to the wall.


Please note that it might be necessary to engage a licensed plumber to complete this work. If in doubt consult your local building authority before you begin.


If you have any other questions we can help with, please let us know.
