Answers

All the diverter does is allow the water to continue down your downspout when the barrel is full unless your barrel is wide open and then you'll have some water flow over the lip in a downpour.

I do see many people don't have the drain connector installed. This may be reduce the installatio...

It's not necessary to apply sealant however it will help create a better seal. If you have a 3-4 inch wide downspout then you have to cut a hole in the narrow side. It will not work you use the wide side.

I have not had a problem with a clog. I keep my gutters cleaned out, and I have several of these diverters set up. One I have that has 2 hoses attached to the bottom of the barrel, and it auto waters my raised beds.

These reviews aren't exaggerated. This rain barrel diverter kit is awesome. It includes the bits for your driver and all the parts needed. I'm not sure how long the hose will last as it's pretty thin plastic. However, I was very please with this project. The directions booklet was very detailed and well presented. Thank you EarthMinded!

Has only rained once since this was installed. Faucet is plastic. Not sure it will hold water over time. Did leak around hole for faucet. Only gravity holds it in place. Install was very easy.

I thought it was very easy to understand the instructions. Drilling the gutter was a little harder than I thought it would be but I got it done. The only issue I've had is that the tube sprung a leak and shoots water out when the barrel is full. But other than that, it has worked great. I'm very glad I bought it.

Assembly onto my barrel was easy, all parts were included as expected. I built a platform of treated pine so there is plenty of clearance for watering can under spigot. May be some concern that spigot is plastic, but after a month of use, all is well and working perfectly.

The kit was extremely easy to work with. The directions were really easy to follow and super thorough. I was a bit nervous about the drilling into the downspout, and that the diverter wouldn't work (my downspout was on a slight angle going into the drain pipe), but it works great. We had a nice steady rain yesterday just after I finished the installation, and so far there are no leaks! Highly recommended.
