Questions & Answers
Does this model come in a version that can be installed on the side of the gutter (3 inches on either side), rather than the front?
For the 2" side, no one has designed one
In the event of an especially intense downpour, is it normal for a barrel top to overflow despite having the diverter installed?
It is essential to ensure that the diverter and the hole on the side of the container are on the same horizontal plane, as this will minimize any issues with water being unable to flow well. Water pressure and water volume can potentially overwhelm the diverter if the diverter is unable to deal with the pressure properly. Nevertheless, the open opening of the diverter to the hose to the container limits the amount of water that can be drained into
How would this work for a downspout that measures 4 inches by 3 inches?
The answer is YES. The best way to achieve the best collection rate and fit is to install it on the 3in side of the 3x4 pipe. If you cannot find what you are looking for here, then visit RainBarrelParts
Can this be used on a gutter with a 4x4" dimension?
The answer is yes! one installed on my gutter as well, same size as the 4x4 that you are asking about. Using a cordless drill, you can install the product in about 10/15 minutes.

Thanks a lot! Here are some photos from the Sadly, I didn't need the saw piece in the kit, so I paid more than what I should have for it
All the other pieces were worth the money. Originally, I wanted the rain barrel to be installed where the downspout was 2x3, but I changed my mind and the downspout became 3x4 instead. I was concerned that the insert would not be as efficient, but that was not the case, because even after just one use I collected a substantial amount of rain water. Installing this device was very simple, and the product appears to be very well constructed. saw the comments that the directions were not provided, so I took photos of my directions rather than just type them. It would be great if they could assist me.

It works really well In order to level the surface, you must To route the rainwater from the downspout into the rain barrel, we used this kit (with the hole saws)
As the instructions are a bit vague, you should ideally have the outlet from the downspouts just slightly increased (1/2 inch) over the rain barrel inlet. If the barrel fills up to just above the inlet, the water would back up in the connector and prevent any more water from coming in, thus sending any remaining water down the gutter. My order for the third connector comes in tomorrow. It has worked well on two barrels to date. If you use this method, you will have much less trouble dealing with overflowing rain barrels, and you can enclosure the barrel so mosquitoes do not set up housekeeping in all that standing water.

As promised, the product delivers on its promise
The installation is easy, and there are clear directions to follow. While the product performs as promised, small leaves, maple seeds, etc will clog it up over time. For this purpose, gutter guards should be installed on gutters. A 2X3 gutter was used to install the product. The drill bits that came with the kit worked well. I'm not sure how it'll work on a 3X4 gutter, but the manufacturer claims it will. You must drill the hole and install it on the 3" side, they say it doesn't work on the 2". Having finished the water barrel for our next watershed, I just need another flex tube and two seals! Tips for an extra bonus You may want to install your water barrel higher than the ground, so that you can get a bucket or jug underneath Make the rack you're making sturdy. I made mine out of a thin card board. Between 300 and 400 Water in a barrel filled to the brim with 400 pounds!.

Thanks a lot! I'll be able to use this on Initially worried that the barrel would fill too quickly and overflow, I purchased this instead and am much happier with it now
After about 20 minutes, we had gotten 3 tenths of an inch into the barrel, and it was As a result, the diverter allowed the rain to continue on its way down the gutter rather than overflowing There were not the best instructions for installing this, but it was relatively easy to do They were easy to follow and did not require much explanation. Especially if you’re concerned about your barrel overflowing or if you don’t want to completely cut your gutter in half, you should definitely get this diverter.

The installation was extremely easy and it worked great
I just bought two decorative fifty gallon barrels, which I intend to use as rainwater collection systems. The diverter was the best solution since I didn't want to do a lot of cutting on the gutter and have large hoses visible. During the installation process, it took me less than 30 minutes and most of that time was spent double and triple checking where I intended In my back garden, I have the large downspout that is 3" x 4". I put it on the side that is 3" and I was worried that it would not collect enough water, but I filled both barrels of water with off and on showers in two days.

A tight seal was not achieved
Due to the fact that I wanted to get the rain barrels setup and the diverter I purchased in the past was out of stock, I purchased two of these kits. I would have been better served by waiting. Several days after installing the first diverter, I discovered that water is leaking down the outside of the downspout where the diverter is attached. Not all of it is sealed tightly. As it is your responsibility to remove the diverter for winterizing, this is only going to make it.

Diverter to replace the old one
In need of a replacement diverter for my rain gutter, this had what I needed along with all the extra bits I preferred not to hold. The gutter used to hang from the outside of the house was easy to replace (although I accidentally lost the original one). My favorite part about Amazon is that it is fairly pricey, but I got it within a couple of days without having to go to the city to locate Besides having the spare parts, I now have a few other replacements available for when I.

I don't see any instructions? A complete set of instructions was not included with this product
I noticed from reading other reviews for similar products that you need a hole saw if you have metal downspouts. Therefore, if only have a power drill, you will have to first buy a hole saw in order to cut the hole without damaging the.
