Adapting 2x3 Aluminum To Raingo


Just picked up a small job where I'll be removing some vinyl gutter and replacing with seamless.
However, where the current square vinyl downspout goes into a drain in the ground, the customer has poured a concrete patio all around it and basically cemented the square downspout in.
I'm not about to cut and bust out concrete, not knowing what's under it for a drain anyway. Anyone have an idea for adapting 2x3 aluminum spout to this square Raingo crap at the concrete? I've been searching the net but coming up with nothing yet.
I'm thinking of maybe somehow inverting a Raingo 4" tile adapter, inserting a piece of 4' PVC and then using a 2x3x4 tile adapter on top of that.
Why do people make simple stuff so difficult?

Sounds like you have a good strategy. You could also make your own custome funnel from a piece of gutter coil.

Going to try the inverted Raingo tile adapter idea first. If it's a no go, may do just as you suggest.

I do actually have some manufactured gutter funnels laying around. Worst case scenario I could cut one lengthwise, make it the proper diameter and rivet it back together.
In the meantime, no Raingo tile adapters available locally, so I had to order a couple online.
