Could you please settle a dispute for me?
For PROPER installation of 3-4″ diameter outdoor PVC drainage pipes taking water from residential gutters to a lake approximately 80-100 feet away, which way should the bell end of the pipes face–upstream or downstream?
I would really appreciate your professional opinion on this difference of opinions involving proper installation of these pipes.
Thank you very much!
The Bell (hub) is the inlet ALWAYS But in Oz anything goes it would appear.
The only time I have ever seen the bell backwards is on a return bend (VENT) never on drainage But then again we do have modern codes to follow.
