Ours don't actually have a handle or a lock. It's being kept shut using magnets. Usually I just pull the frame to open it.

Stormwater Charged System Required?

Stormwater Charged System Required?

Your downpipes are just one issue, the other is site drainage, you should be able to have natural surface drainage to LPD, with charged system you can't.
