Pipes: BS EN includes a calculation for the allowable capacity of the rainwater pipes. The standard recommends that the pipe should be designed at a maximum of 1/3rd full (Filling degree ) In our calculations we have chosen two pipe sizes and limited their capacity to 1/3rd full. mm; mm.

Roof angle and overshoot the gutter. Rainwater pipe sizes With the exception of the Deepflow gutter system which has an 82mm diameter downpipe, all other Marley PVCu gutter systems incorporate outlets suitable for 68mm circular or 65mm square rainwater pipes.

It is important that the sizes of gutters and pipes used in a rainwater system are selected with consideration of the size of the roof and the position of downpipes in order to ensure that typical rainfall does not cause the system to overflow.

Downspout & Gutter Sizing. Use the tables below to size your gutters and downspouts according to your catchment area and potential maximum rainfall per hour. Note: I will err on the side oversizing gutters as I want all the rain I can get when it falls.

You can get data on rainfall intensity for your site here [link to come], courtesy of NOAA. Gutter Sizing. The aim of designing a rainwater system is normally to achieve a balance between the cost of the system and the frequency and consequence of possible flooding.

The capacity of the gutter should be designed to provide adequate disposal of the heavy rainfall usually associated with summer Size: KB. Traditionally, outlets pass horizontally through a parapet or upstand, and discharge into a hopper, which collects the rainwater into a vertical external downpipe.

Vertical outlets with internal rainwater pipes must maintain the seal of the vapour control layer (VCL) and be insulated to eliminate condensation on the cold pipework during winter. To select the size of the Classical rainwater system the following method should be used.

Calculate the effective catchment area (x) to be drained from the following table. Let the rainfall rate (r) = 75mm per hour. Your run off rate (q) = rx/ This gives the maximum litres of rainfall per second expected.

Distance between stop end and outlet should not exceed 50 x depth of gutter, and distance between outlets should not exceed x depth of gutter. Attention is drawn to Para and Fig.3 of the above BS Code of Practise: i.e.

careful placing of outlets enables smallest practicable gutter sizes to be used. The outlet from the gutter will usually have a far lower capacity than that of the rainwater pipe it connects into.

This is because water is unable to effectively turn sharp corners and so at the outlet, water tends to smooth out the turn and form a narrow neck of flow. Once into the downpipe, this will to spread out to the inside surface of theFile Size: 1MB.

Choose gutter/outlets according to published flow rate capacities. Note: Depending on building type, a safety factor should be allowed for the sizing of internal gutters.

Offset of more than 10 ft ( m) can affect drainage capacity. The gutter outlet capacity should suit the downspout capacity. The downspout size must suit the bottom width of the gutter. RAINFALL DATA AND DRAINAGE FACTORS.VMZINC offer a complete Rainwater System range.
