    Hi all, recently had a new driveway and drain installed. I have noticed however that the drainpipe shoe does not quite reach the drain. So when it rains half goes down the drain and half down the back. I can't find a shoe with a wider reach. Does anyone know if such a thing exists?

    Picture below for reference.

    +1 for nose. Or if that doesn't work, leave the plate and extend the pipe to go through a hole you drill -using a pipe socket.

    As above. Extend the downpipe through the cover, guarantees the water going into the hopper and not all over the floor then.
