Rainwater pipe through roof tiles


Recommended Posts

I have a rain water pipe that runs from the front to the back of my roof which drains rainwater from the front parapet to the rear.   There is no way to add a downpipe on the front of the building so I have to stick with what's already in place.

 

The 4" plastic pipe exits the roof as shown in the photos but it looks like a real patch job....is there a proper tile/pipe adapter that can be fitted instead?     I'm having some work done so I'd like to have this redone properly.

 

Thanks in advance.

why does it need the extra bit of pipe stuck on the end of what looks like a flexi toilet pan connector??

 

id be tempted to build a box around it so it looks like your rooflight lower down. or disguise it as a chimney, but i think the exit angle would rule out most off the shelf items.

Dunno why the extra bit was put on - twas before my time.

 

Here's something that might work if the angles were right
