I have a dip around one of my downspouts and I have a lot of water gathering in that area when it rains. It's coming from gutter downspout and neighbors gutters. I want to install water collector (catch basin) in that area and attach my downspout to it as well. I want to direct all this water to the back side of my backyard away from the house(I have landscape inclination towards that area).
- Do I need a french drain for that (corrugated drain pipe with fabric filter and stone) or I can just use 4'' pipe without holes in it just to move the water away and maybe add a water collector in the end with stones?
- What are consequences if I use drain pipe with holes wrapped in fabric but without stones? (I don't wanna use that much stone for the project) As I understand the worst can happen is the water won't escape from holes fast enough but the pipe won't clogged, right?
