      Comments about Downspout Diverter:

      tougher than expected to fine tune. you need to use level to precisely place the diverter at teh exact right height. grommets leaked .
      diverter hole was to close to floor preventing good seal for grommet. i cut a slice across a little bit of inside seat of grommet so it could clear floor of diverter box. on outside of diverter boxm make a mark or tape line where top of overflow tube is. This line should correspond to the water level you want in your barrel . Make diverter hose hole and barrel fill holes equal distances below this line .Like the distance of overflow down to hose hole

        Simple option for customer to order right or left hand drain. Not all customers can use right hand drain, me included. I had to install it backward with the mounting holes out. Very un professional for some one who cares about the appearence of their garden. We have garden shows.

        Why only left side hose?

            Comments about Downspout Diverter:

            The diverter works well, but the hose exits on only the left side which limits placement of the rain barrel. I need one with the hose coming out on the right side. Am I missing something-this limitation seems pretty significant.

            Comments about Downspout Diverter:

            Once it's installed, it works great- just as described. Getting it installed was a pain in the butt. Probably would have been a lot easier if we had the proper tools to cut the downspout and there wasn't a gigantic yew bush blocking the downspout and making access dificult. I just wish it came in white. I have never seen a dark green gutter in my entire life, so I have no idea why it's green. And having the hole on both sides as many other people mentioned would be a plus. In my location it was fine the way it is, but if we had wanted to put the barrell on the other side it would have been a problem. All in all I am very pleased.

            Comments about Downspout Diverter:

            Once installed the diverter works fine. Good for watering plants (no faucet nearby). However, (1) can only direct barrel hose to the right... can you make diverter with hole (with rubber plug) on left side?; (2) small downspot pipe looks awkward going into large diverter opening... do you offer adapter?

              Comments about Downspout Diverter:

              It works perfectly well but I did have to have my son install it since it did need some drilling in the downspout, etc. to attach it to the rain barrel

              ON of the things I cannot find anywhere is what is the winter care of this device and the rain barrel... since I live on Cape Cod and we do get freezes here. How do I shut it off if it is disconnected to rain barrel?

              Comments about Downspout Diverter:

              Under cons, I stated possible greater versatility. This could be simply and easily achieved, if there was a hole on each side of the diverter for the attachment of the connecting hose to the barrel. The side not being used could be plugged with a solid rubber plug similar to the rubber grommet used for the hose side. This way the barrel could sit on either side of the downspout, or even have barrels on both sides. Periodically check the connecting hose, and if it is not draining well, a length of Romex wire or other flexible wire can be used to clean shingle grit and organic debris from the hose. The diverter collection box will likely need to be cleaned occasionally. Overall, one of the best new devices I have purchased lately.
