Patio Drain

Apr 3, 2018
Port Charlotte, FL
My new pool was built within a stem wall so the patio height matches my back porch height. The patio slopes away from the pool and the run off on the house/porch side flows into a slotted "Dec-o-Drain" which empties out through 1-1/2" pvc on each side. My concern is erosion where the drain empties - I don't want all that water pouring out on the foundation of the house. Has anyone dealt with this issue and found a good solution?

Second what Tim says.................move it where you want it to go. Do it asap before anything gets messed up during a big rain event.
