I use it at work m8, i'm a roofing contractor & we use it as heavy duty downpipe on colleges etc, that price is about right for a 4m length. remember you can use it year after year. karl.

i'm a bit confused this morning.
there is ice all over the place, not frost, ice but all the plants seem fine.

is it only after they warm back up i would notice damage?
