Quite a bit. Maybe 2 feet, but the last time I pulled off
an end cap, a huge amount of water ran out! This is in the
middle of the desert, when it hadn't rained for months. I
put the cap back on, but maybe I should have left it off.
Birds like to sit on the elements, and make it sag even
more. These birds are immune to 1500W or RF. They must
have ceramic feet.
