What happens with excessive downflow?

Asked by
Arizona

December 14, 2015
What if it is a powerful or torrential rain, and the rainwater falling down the downspout is far more than the single hose can drain sideways to the rain barrel?

Will the excess water be allowed to fall? ... or will it build up a load of standing water above the diverter?

Answer: 
It flows thru the downspout if it isn't caught in the diverter. The only reason it would backup would be if it were clogged with debris.

Answer: 
The water will flow through the diverter into the downspout below. It does not appear that the diverter's ability to pass water is a function of how much water can flow in the hose. Just be sure that the rain gutter is clear of leaves and debris that might cause the diverter to clog.

Answer: 
Thank you for contacting Fiskars. During times of powerful rain it is possible to have rain back up above the diverter. In these cases it is recommended to disconnect the outlet hose if possible.

Answer: 
I suppose it might depend on what you have in mind for your system. I want to say yes if you have all your barrels connected together to each other and just enter the water diversion pipe into one of the barrels. Efficiency of your system and flow will depend on your setup. There is a lot of DIY info out there. Good luck,

Answer: 
Yes. Simply connect the barrels together. I have two 70 gal barrels connected and filled 1.5 in one rain!
To connect the barrels you will have to buy the connectors for the barrels, but they are not expensive... Just be sure to connect the barrels LOWER than the hole for the diverter. If you follow the guidelines in the instructions you will mount the diverter about 3 inches below the top of the barrel. Read More

If you follow the guidelines in the instructions you will mount the diverter about 3 inches below the top of the barrel. This will keep the diverter from overflowing the barrel. To connect multiple barrels, just be sure the connection is at least 4 inches below the diverter. If you connect them higher than the diverter, the water will never get to the connecting tube and the second barrel will not get filled. Read Less

No, it does not need to be removed in the winter. Inside the unit is a part that is solid on one side and grated on the other. For water collection, that part is inserted grate side up, and the water will go through the grate, collect in a pool and then drain out the discharge hole to your collection container.

Thank you for contacting Fiskars. You can leave your diverter on your downspout for the winter. You need to remove the filter (if you have the diverter pro) as well as the hose. Your kit should have come with caps to put over the openings where the hose was attached. If you still have the manual that came with the kit, there is a page on winterizing you can refer to.

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 127 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by excellent product, and a great idea! There is a plethora of products on the market that are designed to divert rain water from your downspout to the rain barrel. We chose this one for several reasons: it is easy to install, it has a filter that keep debris away, and the main thing for me was that it diverts water into the barrel, and when the barrel is full it channels it back into the downspout, so that you don't have to worry about it running who knows where from your overflow valve. We din't even install one, because it is not needed in our application! August 16, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice design A well designed product which seems to work well. I found from the other reviews that it is best assembled to your downspout with a sealer - I used clear silicone. The install instructions are very clear and I found it easy to install. The first time it rained I completely filled my 50 gal rain barrel. The diverter allowed the excess water to drain back into the downspout so it works well. I'd like to see a variety of colors, black is a bit prominent. July 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome purchase! I bought this kit after much research about rain barrel kits. It did what I wanted it to do - divert the water after the barrel fills up. The barrel is full and the water continues on through the downspout as advertised. Brilliant! August 16, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Product Installation was easy. The diverter can't handle a high volume of water so in heavy rains much of the rainwater is not collected and continues down the gutter. For this reason I used it on a section of gutter that only collects rainwater from a small portion of the roof. Very little water is lost now that I made that change. August 31, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by easy to install this sounded like a pretty good idea and an improvement on what I had tried to do in the past to collect and store rain water. were it not for the fact that the down spouts in my property are old and perhaps larger than newer models it would have been real easy to install. it just took a little more work but it looks good and works great so far. August 19, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Had to see it in action Catches a hard rain wonderfully! Putting it together was easy. Directions were right on target. The hard part was waiting for the rain. Anyone conscious of conserving water should place one in line. According to rain gauge, we got .03 but barrel shows one third full. Should have done it sooner. August 15, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rain diverter A well made product, at a good price, comes with clear instructions and easy to fit. August 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to Install This makes installing a rain barrell easy. With the ability to collect rain water, you will appreciate this converter. August 19, 2016
