Broken brackets on downpipe


Impact damage, age and/or prolonged UV exposure


  • remove the broken brackets and secure the downpipe against the wall with new brackets no more than 1200 mm apart, fixing the top bracket within around 200 mm of the eaves. Fix each bracket with 2 stainless steel screws

  • ensure that downpipes carrying rainwater drain to stormwater systems or soak pits, not to wastewater gully traps
