While we are talking gutters (previous posting). These new ones
I just had done do not have downspout adapters. Aluminum
downspout to the cast-iron storm drain tile. In the old days I
would just stuff a little newspaper, then cement the gap and
forget about it. Now-a-days they have all these adapters and
covers. Is it worth removing 6 newly attached downspouts to add
the adapters? Is there a different material like duck seal to
shove in the gap? Or go back to the old stand-by, cement?
Yea, I'm with Tom. Why the sudden urge to make works and spend money - got
too much of that?? You know what worked before so what the heck.
Adapters? Adapters??? You don't need no stiiiinking adapters, man!!
No water spewing out,,,LOL. Just a gap from the 2x3 downspout in
approx. 4 dia. cast iron hub. I usually fill the gap to prevent
anything crawling in or out. Or to just make sure nothing falls
in to plug the pipe. Rope sounds good (oakum?).
