How can I keep my guttering pipe in place?

Question: I have a long straight gutter coming down from the roof onto a flat roof where it joins a 90-degree guttering pipe which goes into another that connects into another that runs off a flat roof – the question is the 90-degree one keeps coming off, what can I do to keep it in place?

As Ajw said small screw, keeping the screw high as not to leak.

If it’s PVC guttering you’re talking about, a strong PVC solvent glue will work or if it’s metal, it may need to be fixed into position with brackets.
