Product Overview

This is a diverter upgrade for any EarthMinded Rain Station Rain Barrel or Earth Minded DIY rain barrel kit for use with 3 in. x 4 in. rectangular downspouts. This kit includes an elongated version of our patented FlexiFit diverter that will replace the 2 in. x 3 in. diverter included with EarthMinded rain barrels. This diverter installs to the narrow 3 in. side of the downspout, and collects water from the entire inner wall surface of the downspout, for greater collection efficiency.
  • An easy upgrade to increase water collection efficiency, for new or existing installations on homes with 3 in. x 4 in. downspouts
  • Backwards compatible with our 2x3 version - installs on the narrow, 3 in side of the downspout
  • Automatic overflow protection, once the barrel is full, water passes through the downspout when installed according to the directions
  • Easy to install and remove for winter storage
  • Follow the installation procedure as illustrated in the EarthMinded user guide
  • Includes the diverter and a pair of stainless steel screws only - (does not include the fill hose, winter cover, and hole saw, which are included with EarthMinded rain barrels)
  • Must be used with an EarthMinded brand rain barrel, EarthMinded DIY rain barrel kit or any item using the flexifit diverter system

Do not use this!
If you have a 3x4 spout, there is a reason! You need the bigger spout to handle the volume of water off the roof, do not go choking down the flow by putting an obstruction in your spout. Debris WILL get lodged on this, your gutters will then over flow or your spout will become a geyser, you will have a mess, possible damage, and maybe even a flooded basement. Just divert the spout straight into the barrel. If you want, add a spill way onto the top of your barrel to go into another catch basin, let it drop to the ground onto a splash block, or use a flex tube, but never, ever restrict your down spout in this manner, it is just not smart. The photo is rain barrel with back up catch basin, no spout, we just let the water fall out the outlet straight into the barrel.

    Initially I was satisfied with this diverter and I would have given it 4-1/2 stars (for install). I installed two of these two summers ago and they were somewhat easy to do with a little finagling. The following fall came and they filled up my water barrels and and then self diverted to overflow mode as advertised. This past summer I disconnected them from the barrels because I'm in the process of building stands for them among other summer projects in which I'm still working on. And then this fall came and the rain with it! I could hear the sound of the water overflowing louder than previously and upon investigation, and to my surprise, rain water was shooting out of many of the seams and down the side of the house. I immediately took the downspout apart only to find it completely clogged with dirt and small twigs. So to state the obvious (and my initial fears) about the product is that it acts as a funnel. If you don't service your gutters regularly the diverter allows debris to easily collect and clog the system.

      Used 2 1/8” hole saw and diverter fit right in. Mounting screws provided. Used 1” PVC pipe to rain barrel. A 3/4” rain gave about 30 gallons of water from a small roof area down spout.
