I want to divert the water ten feet from the downspout. What kind of hose can I attach to do that?

Asked by Mango October 13, 2020

Answers

You could locate/buy a longer hose of same diameter, Or, fashion an adapter to a piece of garden hose. Even using some duct tape or Gorilla tape to attach the garden hose would work

what stops the barrel from over flowing?

Asked by dd September 3, 2020

Answer

You set this up PARALLEL to the barrel entry point. When the barrel is full, the water rises over the top of the tube. When the tube is under water, and parallel to the diverter, there is no longer a place for the water to go so it backs up higher in the diverter. The middle of the diverter has a giant round hole in it - it has a lip whch is higher than the tube-hole, but lower than the drainpipe / rectangular outside lip. This allows water to pour down the middle a) when the tube is 'overflowed,' b) before it is high enough to escape the rectangular downspout.

How does one disconnect it for the winter if it doesn't come with a plug?

Asked by LQZ July 5, 2018

Answers

DO NOT JUST PULL OUT THE TUBE There is no option to comment on other answers, but look at the picture: The hole the tube is in is lower than the overflow that sends water back down the downspout (by design). If you pull the tube out of the hole, the water cannot overflow the diverter center piece because the hole you just left will allow the water to escape and run down the outside of the unit and downspout. All the other answers are ok - from tiling the hose up to plugging the hole - the key is the water won't go down the downspout until it meets resistance / can rise higher than the hole.

Would this fit this onto a 3.5 inch diameter round downspout? Maybe by compressing the downspout ...

Easy to install and does work. Wasn't as "universal" as I'd hoped, but with a little pushing and pulling we got our plastic rain gutter to fit. I also spray painted it to match our gutter.

Outstanding collection method
Within 3 hours two 32 gallon garbage cans were full. California people need to know more about this product and benefits. Home Depot needs to promote products like this. I will advise people of this because I work for Home Depot. I'll advise our management of its benefits and ask that the diverter be put at the check out locations in our store. If 5% of residential users used just one of these diverters we could save thousands of gallons of water daily and save big bucks and still keep our lawns and water our gardens.

Difficult
Everything about this is difficult. It is hard to get the o ring in a one inch hole. It is hard to get the hard hose into the o ring. Then you do the same to the converter o ring. The tube is rigid. The rain barrel must be placed exactly in the perfect place.
