He Makes Eave Troughs Out Of 4-in. Sewer Pipe
I make eave troughs out of 4-in. sewer pipe. If you cut a 10-ft. pipe in half, you have 20 ft. of trough. The ends fit together and they’re a lot tougher than most commercial troughs, which are made out of lightweight metal. It also means you don’t need as many hangars, which I make from 4-in. shelf brackets. You can use endcaps cut in half on the ends. I don’t install downspouts. The water runs straight off into a rain barrel. (John Johnston; bald@eagle.ca)
