One of my drainpipes on my house discharges onto the patio paving stones.

I have bought a shoe to attach to the bottom with a view to drain the pipe into the drain shown.

It means however putting another piece of pipe into the end of the shoe to reach the drain.

Does anybody know of and extended shoe so I don't need to add the extra bit if pipe?

Thank You.

Although it will be a lot of effort for little gain, could you not cut the pipe higher up, and put two 45 degree bends on it to make the shoe reach the drain? (Well almost reach it)

The other thing I would ask is, does your "grille drain" actually go anywhere?

Yes thank you that would do the job - but is it not easier to add a bit to the end of the shoe?

The drain doesn't seem to go anywhere but then what is its purpose?

I believe its supposed to go to a soakaway, but if yours does not, would that not make it pointless to extend the rainwater drain pipe?

Please see attached picture.

Is this a soakaway in your opinion?

As an aside I managed to disconnect the drainpipe from the gutter whilst fitting the shoe!

So will now have to pay somebody to connect it!

I am not an expert in drainage, but I would say that is NOT a soak away.
Soakaways should not be near the premises and around 1M Cubed in volume with gravel on the top.

Regarding your drain pipe coming detached from the gutter, why not try the opposite of what brought it down? Lift your down pipe up? (I am not joking, ours did the same, and as the brackets were not too tight, I was able to push the drain pipe back up so it connected to the gutter T)
