Questions & Answers

Will this kit fit a 3" round downspout?

Will this kit fit a 3" round downspout?
Asked by: Dennis
It is for 2" x 3" rectangular. The flexible fitting (and winterizing cover) are flat and would not seal well to a round pipe.

Hose Length

How long is the hose? My barrel can not be placed right next to the downspout. Is there a way to get a longer hose?
Asked by: Walter
The hose gives you about 28 inches of flexibility. Review the instructions http://www.homedepot.com/catalog/pdfImages/8f/8f84d6f5-44e3-47fb-87c6-a23876b1d190.pdf for more info.

Kit has all the drill bits, gaskets and hoses needed to connect from down spout to closed rain barrel. If you have more than one barrel and purchase more than one connection kit, the multiple drill bits are redundant and wasteful. Would be helpful if company made kit with just the hoses and gaskets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easiest way to divert rain water into a barrel I chose this item because it was the simplest and easiest way to get rain water into my rain barrels. I did not want an open system where the water flows from a shortened downspout into the barrel. This item allows you to make a closed system, and not have to install any overflow piping, since when the barrel(s) reach capacity, the water backs up the pipe between the diverter and the receiving barrel and all additional water continues on its way down the downspout just like before the diverter was installed. Just follow the directions and be sure the top of the hole you cut in the downspout is the same height as where you want the uppermost water level to be in the barrel(s). Don't cut the hole in the downspout until you have the barrel(s) where you want them as far as height off the ground. If you are using a stand for your barrel(s) put them on the stand before cutting the hole in the downspout for the diverter. Simple in design, simple to install. Works exactly like the manufacturer said it would. I took one notch off quality and value because the included hole saws aren't really designed to cut downspout. They worked wonderfully on my barrels, but not nearly as well on the downspout. You have to go r-e-a-l-l-y slow when using the hole saw on the downspout, or it will make a mess.

Easy to install, you do not have to cut a section out of the down spout just drill the required hole and install the diverter. The drill bit and cutters work great but I do suggest drilling a small pilot hole first. If a person needs a second diverter system order the kit without the hole cutters and use the ones from the first system. If you follow the instructions provided there should be no problem. The day after my system was installed we had a rain storm which totally filled a 50 gallon rain barrel in a short time period. Our state allows two 50 gallon rain barrels and I am considering a second system soon. Good luck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rain Gutter Diverter The kit was easy to install. I drilled a hole in the top of the primary rain barrel to accept the diverter hose, which had just enough length for my use. It allowed for gutter water to go directly into the barrel allowing for a sealed system, preventing mosquitoes or unnecessary overflow of water that would occur with other diverter systems.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Less than Ideal Product leaks once installed as the seals aren't tight. Issues with having a rain barrel with open top: During big downpours that water backs up inside the downspout because the opening in the middle isn't sufficient to let enough water flow through. This causes the water level to rise beyond desired level in barrel. Honestly, couldn't find a quality diverter while doing research. I settled on this as I though it was the least worst. Trashed it and made my own based on some youtube videos out of PVC piping. Highly recommend you make your own, it's not hard.

So far, it appears to work well, although the instructions are a little bit confusing (for the open top barrels): the illustrations show the diverter installed higher than the actual directions which indicate the diverter is to be installed at the same level as the intake hole in the barrel.

I can collect 50 gallons of water with one good rain. I would like to be able to buy an additional diverter with hose, cover, and fitting, without having to buy the entire kit which included the two hole saws. I don't need more hole saws...
