Water Coming From An External Source
Use a Downspout Extension to Keep Water Away from Your Foundation
Downspout extensions connect to your existing downspout to redirect rainwater away from the foundation of your house. We recommend that you use a four- to six-foot downspout extension to channel water runoff. Some downspout extensions can fold or roll up, so you can still finish yard work, such as mowing the lawn, without hassle. Another option is the installation of a catch basin to transport water away from your home.
