A rain barrel can be located at any downspout around the home, garage or out-building to catch and store rainwater for outdoor watering and washing chores.

Kit was missing the screw cap for the extra spout. Couldn't figure out who to contact. Both spouts are open to the elements.

Does not work on steel downspouts
Even though the offering says, “can be set up on any downspout” the hole saw provided is very cheap and will not cut through steel, despite not saying this anywhere on the site. I’ll put an image showing the wording as I’m sure they’ll change the language. Contacted home depot and they contacted vendor. Was told I’d have a new kit sent to me as the drill piece fell off into my downspout never to be seen again, and rusting away for eternity. Never showed up, and no communication. Waited a week and nothing. Called again and vendor said Home Depot never called them. Very poor. They should include a decent hole saw. If you buy this kit, plan on getting your own hole saw that can cut into steel unless you have lighter weight downspouts.

    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!

      Conversion kit enabled me to change an ordinary plastic trash can into a rain barrel. Extremely clear instructions, all necessary pieces included, and makes the process easy to do.

      So easy anyone could get it done! Leaks a little around down spout penetration. Little silicon will fix that.

      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.
