Our complex also has drainage pipes for AC water. It looks clean, but... IDK.....
Judge not lest ye be judged creates a cesspool. Judge others and prepare to be judged by them.
Just know when to keep the verdict to yourself.
I posted this here years ago..but it seems fitting to post it again for this thread:
An important modification I made after creating that video:
make you sure put a wire mesh covering at the *top* of the downspout!
wire mesh inside the gutter, securely covering up the hole that leads to the downspout pipe..
Before I put the mesh there, the hole to the downspout was just wide open..
it was hot..summer..a squirrel probably "smelled" the water, and thought to itself:
"hmm..there is water at the other end of this tube! I should check it out!"
down the tube he goes..he found water allright.
squirrels cant back up..
I found him a few days later..it wasnt pretty...the flies found him before I did..
hundreds of baby flies were having a good time..
so yeah..cover up the downspout opening securely! up at the top, at the gutter.
