Product Overview

The Earth Minded DIY Rain Barrel kit takes the guesswork out of making your own rain barrel. We include all parts needed to quickly assemble and install a state-of-the-art rain barrel with diverter. This kit includes a 3x4 in. version of our Flexi Fit diverter which will help to prevent overflows and flooding that plague conventional top-fill rain barrels and can damage a home foundation when installed according to the instructions. Rain barrels are a convenient way to save water and money. 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.
  • Version is for use with 3 in. x 4 in. downspouts only and will not work with 2 in. x 3 in. or 3 in. square downspouts, please check before ordering
  • Maximizes rain water collection efficiency for homes fitted with 3 x 4 downspouts
  • Works with plastic drums and waste barrels - not for use with metal drums (barrel not included)
  • Patented flexifit diverter helps prevent overflows by passing water through the downspout when the barrel is full
  • Diverter is easy to install and winterize
  • No special tools needed; hole saw included
  • Sealed system resists mosquitoes, pests and algae growth
  • Spigot and drain with standard garden hose connection included
  • Accordion style connection hose extends from 8 in. to 31 in.

The product was easy to install with the provided drill attachment. I used regular 1" Schedule 40 pipe to carry the water to my water barrel. I used the supplied extensible connector to actually connect the schedule 40 pipe to the barrel so it's easy to remove for barrel maintenance. It works effectively at capturing water and the central 'overflow' hole in the scoop seems to work well during a Texas deluge. I'm pleased with my purchase.

Pros and Cons here. Pros: fills the rain barrel up quickly with over sized 1 1/4" diameter filler hose. The kit comes with saw drill bits and all needed hardware if your down spout is close to your rain barrel. Cons: Very short filler hose. Hose connectors with the kit are not standard ID/OD diameter with garden hoses so you with spend a good amount of time and money in the plumbing department of your hardware store figuring what adapters will work. An 8' sump pump hose and hose clamps allowed me to extend the filler hose to my rain barrel. Another issue; What do you do when the rain barrel is full with NO inline turn off? You could pull the divert-er out of the down spout and put in the plug like you were winterizing it. I plan to make another trip for plumbing supplies in hopes to find a inline shut off again keeping in mind the filler hose ID/OD diameters are not standard. So far I have spent an additional $40.00 for plumbing supplies and paving stones to level the rain barrel.

The product works great, with the best part being the ease of installation. I installed about a month ago and it filled my rain barrel on the first good rain.

Product came on time. Directions easy to understand. Included drill bits were very nice addition to the product and made installation simple. Filled 65 gallon barrel quickly because of the addition of the updated part that goes inside the gutter. High quality product.

    Very easy to install. Just follow the directions. If you like to jump in without following the directions, I don't recommend that. Make sure you have gutter screens clean and this product will work very well.

      Works great and fairly easy to install. My only concern is the spigot is plastic and I dont think it will last long.
