Customer Questions & Answers

What are the dimensions (inside and out) for the polyethylene tubing that goes from the downspout to the barrel?

The tube that came with the rain barrel is now cracked and needs replaced.
Asked by: Julianna
Outside diameter: 3/4", or .750" Inside diameter: 6/10" or .600" Wall thickness: 0.075", just a bit under 1/10 of an inch thick. If it's not playing fair during install, I bet a few moments with a hair dryer would make it a bit more flexible.

Hose specs?

Would like to get specifications on the hose length and diameter to determine if it will reach and fit with the current barrel setup.
Asked by: OTALPIT
Outside diameter is 3/4", inside diameter is 6/10" (.600"), so the wall thickness of the hose is 0.075" thick (or thin, if you have that perspective). Th length I've received is approx. 39" long, 1 meter. Both tips are cut at an angle for ease of insertion through the rubber grommet, but I'd advise cutting the "downspout end" (the end of the hose that will go into the diverter) to a smaller angle or even flat. It can't protrude beyond 1/4" in the diverter, so the standard angle that the hose comes with will protrude far beyond 1/4" when you get the hose properly pushed in through the grommet.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Water Diverter Kit I found this kit easy to install and the it contained the necessary parts to install. The directions were simple and the pics were easy to view. The parts were well made and easy to handle. The kit works great for filling the rain barrels that I installed to my gutters. I hope to get more to add more rain barrels to the six I already own. I would have loved to be able to purchase these at the local Home Depot, but they came within the time they were promised. Maybe they could be made in different colors to match some of the colors that gutters come in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding collection method Within 3 hours two 32 gallon garbage cans were full. California people need to know more about this product and benefits. Home Depot needs to promote products like this. I will advise people of this because I work for Home Depot. I'll advise our management of its benefits and ask that the diverter be put at the check out locations in our store. If 5% of residential users used just one of these diverters we could save thousands of gallons of water daily and save big bucks and still keep our lawns and water our gardens.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from OK for 3x4, but expected better This is my first rain barrel experience. As someone else mentioned, I would have preferred separate 2x3 and 3x4 products that were better tailored to those sizes. Seems a bit wobbly, so I added an extra brace. Also, for 3x4, you need to ensure that you make a nice clean cut, since the bottom cut will show when you're done. I only continue to recommend this since I couldn't find anything better for 3x4 at the same price.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too much flexibility, not enough quality Sometimes a product should be made specifically for a purpose. This is one of those times. This product may work, but I will not buy another one and am contemplating returning the second one I bought. It is made for 2 different size gutters but probably doesn't work well for either. The fit between the gutter and the diverter was uncomfortable and I wonder how much water will actually end up in the barrel instead of going down through the center pipe. I have standard size downspouts so the bottom connection was even more loose requiring the use of a screw to hold it steady. The instructions stop after you have the diverter attached to the gutter as though the rest of the process was trivial. I had to remove a grommet and measure the hole to know what size hole to drill in the barrel. The instructions could have told me. The tubing was a bit tight going through the grommet hole. Possibly some vaseline might have helped, but I'm not sure whether the vaseline would also have helped it fall back out. This product is probably overpriced. I haven't been able to find a much better solution for diverting downspout water, but I am still looking.
