New downpipe installed outside bedroom window so when it rains there is a constant loud pinging noise as rain hits it, any ideas to stop this?

    are you sure that the noise is caused by the raindrops hitting pipe? ...... could it be the sound of water running down inside the pipe? – jsotola Feb 23 at 3:12

Hang a plastic chain in the pipe, all the way from top to bottom. The water will trickle down the chain instead of hitting the walls.

  • No it does not cause problems in freezing climates. – longneck Feb 23 at 1:34
