    This is my second downspout diverter as the first one for barrel on other side of house does a great job. They are always a little tricky to install but worth it.

          This downspout diverter is convenient in that you don't have to go out in the rain to flip a switch and you don't have to think about debris in the rain barrel. The downside is that the bottom of the diverter gets corroded rather quickly--about 6 months here in Florida. I'm trying rust prevention on the interior, don't know if that will work.

              Love this product! Easy to install. Well made. Will probably get 2 more for new rain barrel projects. Could easily spray paint if the color is not right for your home.

                This has helped us use thousands of gallons of rain water over the years, more than paying for itself. The nitrogen fixed thunderstorm water is a boon for the garden.

                Comments about : Downspout Diverter, White:

                The function of these diverters is good. They do what they're designed to do very well. However, the winter weather around here takes its toll on the powder coating. It will crack, rust and pop off. It obviously looks terrible from the curb. I ordered two to replace the ones I bought about 4 years ago. I will install the new ones just before we sell this house. So, this is a mixed review. They work but if you live in a sections with "freeze/thaw" cycles be informed.

                  Comments about : Downspout Diverter, White:

                  Used to divert water from downspout directly into rain barrel. This avoids splashing of water against house so that all of it goes into rain barrel. It was very easy to install, the included rubber grommets make a tight seal both on the diverter outlet and the rain barrel input hole. The product does exactly what it was designed to do!
