RE: Bagging Gutters

Back to the original concern about the gutters going straight into the ground. I have found more times than not that the runoff of roof mix never makes it to the outlet anyhow. Limiting the runoff is a big reason why,...but,...also debris in the gutters probably helps as well,...along with the long underground slow pitch that is usually used in these underground "downspouts". Then I think it degrades,....and when it rains it's so diluted and broken down that it's a non-issue.

when in doubt you can always take an extra 10 minutes and dismantle the ds and collect the run off from there.

Ran into a situation today at a golf course.  All the downspouts were rivetted together and were running down into some type of underground system.

The only thing that I can think to do because I cannot bag is to someway plug the downspouts. Then use a gutter cane in each section and flood the gutter so that it dilutes the runoff before it overflows. As it overflows flood the ground below and then some.

As I unplug the downspouts continue to run water in each section for a least 5 minutes.

Looking for suggestions before I would bid the job. Have to figure in the extra time not to kill the golf course.

Run your gutter ane for about 10 minutes and don't worry about it. Its going underground and will be diluted by the canes.

Along with the dilution, I have added extra surfactant for a thick mix and taken it slow with smaller orifice tips. Takes longer but I have had hardly any run off. For downspout bagging I like the mini red velcro straps from the hardware isle at HD, they come in a 5 pack.
