Answer: 6 to 10 feet
Explanation: The distance should always be 6 feet or more depending on the slope of the yard, the capacity of the discharge, and the layout of the yard. You have to ensure that the discharge does not recycle back to the foundation, but also be mindful of it being a trip hazard (if above ground), or discharging into a driveway or sidewalk that can freeze during the winter.
