Drain

We had the drain coming from the roof replaced this summer by the same folks that repaved our driveway. I keep seeing a small streak of water that seems to come from where the asphalt meets the PVC pipe. Any idea where this water is coming from? Thanks in advance.

Does the PVC pipe go into a dry well? Look for a hairline crack in the pipe.

Thank you for your response. The drain meets up with another drain and empties into the street. I looked pretty closely and did not see any cracks. I will look again. If it is cracked would in need to be replaced?

You may have a hard time removing the piece that goes into the asphalt but it almost looks like there is a clog in the underground drain and it's filling up and leaking out.

If there is a 90 degree elbow there, the water just can't flow fast enough. It could also be partially clogged as PJmax said.
