This outlet connects to 68mm round downpipe, which is the recommended sized pipe for Deepflow Guttering. For a quick overview of running outlets watch the short video below (47 secs).
Running outlets are the fittings that are used to connect the guttering into the downpipes. The gutter is clipped in on either side of the outlet, and the bottom part of the fitting is a moulded spigot that fits inside the downpipe. The connection to the downpipe is a push fit one no adhesive is required.
The position of the running outlet is generally governed by the position of existing drainage connections. However if you are designing a new system it is worth remembering that the capacity of the any gutter system is increased when outlets are positioned centrally rather than at one end of the run.
To prevent rainwater pipes from filling up with leaves and moss and causing blockages, you should consider fitting a leaf guard inside the outlet. This simple fitting that resembles a small bird cage sits in the neck of the running outlet and catches debris that would otherwise be swept into the downpipe and hence the drainage system. It is invisible from ground level.
