    I'm with Gustav, call a roofer, hole needs fixed or serious problem with rainwater drainage...

    Reminds of a storage place I rent from, about every other vertical rain gutter has an electric outlet mounted right beneath the downspout. The water rolls backwards off the downspout right over the outlet...

    Screw a Teak cover on.

    Two handy slots provided.

    Use brass screws to avoid corrosion.

    Very odd that it is flowing out of the top and not the bottom gravity pressure would be higher on the bottom and flow more at the base.

    Good observation.

    Go into the world and do well. But more importantly, go into the world and do good.

    It's common knowledge to separate the hot and cold lines. Where did you send the box tops for your edjumacashun?

    I'd call our Prime Minister. (I'm Canadian, you see.) According to him, he knows how to fix EVERYTHING.

    That is why the refrigerator should always be plugged into the top outlet of the two. Stove into the bottom. But, due to weird wind bracing I had to install mine on their side back there.

    At my last employer, BART, a division called Power & Way took care of plumbing and power to third rail. There was always a little sense of fear when using the restroom.

    I got a panicked called from the Wife of a friend of mine that had died not long before, so she was by herself. I was working in another State, four hours away, so couldn't go help.

    She said that water was pouring out of the breaker box (200 amp) in her basement. It was raining. She said it was enough that water was standing on the basement floor. I told her not to go down there. I asked if things in the house were still working, and she said "some things aren't". I told her to call the power company, and the local fire department to come pull the meter out of the base, and for her to go stay somewhere else. She did, and someone did pull the meter, I assume after it quit raining.

    When I got there that weekend, the weatherhead had fallen off of the conduit for the service entrance cable. The weatherhead was mounted on the two story house below the soffit. There was a joint in the guttering right above the weatherhead. The fastening system for the guttering had failed, and the 20 foot sections of gutter coming from both direction were now dumping all their water right on top of the open conduit.

    Fortunately, no one was hurt, and not a lot of food was lost in freezers.
