Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by woodinvilleshopper 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!

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.

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!

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.

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.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ohio Nice Diverter System
We purchased three of these diverters to go with RESCUE rain barrel kits. The original parts included with the kits were very cheap and the hoses were too small. These diverters are sturdy and the hoses a larger diameter so that the barrels fill more quickly. We also appreciate the filter system so that leaves/debris from the gutters don't clog the barrel hose. We did have to make the pre-drilled holes in the barrels larger to accommodate the larger hose but that was a good thing and went well. Overall we are very happy with the results.
