The biggest gap is only about 100-150mm so it's not too bad. I will most likely just use the dirt from the trench I dig to lift it a bit.…

I'm thinking Trinia's idea is fantastic.
Will definitely try doing that on the weekend.

Personal opinion is that it's extremely cruel to have a dog tethered.
Not to mention I have a family friend who's dog accidentally hung itself because it was tied up. R.I.P…

Self tapping tech screws should do the trick if I can keep a steady arm.
Looks like I've got a big weekend ahead of me!!!
Would you just keep wrapping the…

Very good idea... Thanks for that Trinia. I would like to start from scratch as I don't trust the current system at all.
Is there a particular place to get the…

Ideas to drain water away from house

No worries... I'll take some later today.
Only thing is, is that I've covered up the tee with dirt so all you'll see is the drain.

I do... I ended up cutting the horizontal pipe and lifting it so it points directly up and down.
Water seems to drain fluently now.

Ok so I'm thinking I have an air lock present somewhere in the pipe.
As far as I know, I have two options.

Hey fellas,
Got out there and installed a tee connector into my storm water pipe and then connected another piece of pipe on a slight slope.
I have then put a tank…

Sure does thanks Keen although I will probably get started on the french drain tomorrow so no real need for any plan B in the mean time...

Just a few questions to add onto my previous couple...
- How much clay soil should I dig out in order to allow enough drainage through the new top soil/sand?
