    Hi All

    Due to the small area of block paving in my garden falling slightly towards the house I have purchased some clarke drainage channel.

    What is the best way to connect this into the 4" plastic drain that is already underneath the paving (there was a push fit gulley in this 4" pipe but I popped that out to take a look at the set up).

    As seen in one pic there look like there is 4" cut out, is there a direct way of connecting to the bottom of the channel and popping it straight into to 4" pipe under the paving?

    If you no longer needed the drain grid, you could connect straight down into the gully from the drain channel with the correct connector.

    You really do need a gully between the channel and the pipework proper to collect silt, etc.
    With Noseall's solution you will always have access to clean out the gulley and for rodding, assuming there is access at the moment. Whereas a straight fall into the gulley would minimise access in the future.
