Rated 4 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Install was easy This was an easy install. Once I got through the measurements I made my cut on the existing gutter. The only thing I didn't use was the plastic bracket it came with because the straps that held the gutter to the wall was secure enough. The installation looks very clean. If you're really worried about leaves and stuff getting stuck in this water catcher, it's probably best to buy one of those gutter screens (looks like a light bulb-shaped screen) and stick it at the top of the gutter downspout and that should block all the big stuff and prevent this thing from getting clogged. I gave it one less star because, if I had used the bracket, the screw wouldn't have held anything. I have a brick wall and I would have needed to drill through the brick and needed a more robust screw instead. Rain is forecast in a couple of days so we'll see how it works! April 15, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Elegantly simple Works great, fills the barrel, then just passes the excess on. It was a bit tricky finding the neutralization level that stops water going to the barrel but I suspect that if I were going to install more of them each one would be a little easier. Great solution at the right price. August 5, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Works but not very well Most of the water still comes out at the bottom of the downspout. I assume that it relates to the size of the hose it does not capture it al. November 1, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Completely worth it! I looked at a lot of different options and this one by far was the most economical and simplest to install. It was out of stock originally and I had to wait a couple weeks before it was available but again it was worth it. July 8, 2014
