Downspout Diverter Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)


Question: Why do I need a downspout diverter?


A downspout diverter makes it easier to take a rain barrel off-line. The most common reason for taking a rain barrel off-line is winter weather or if the rain barrel is full. If you ever need to move the barrel from it's current location for any reason there is no need to worry about having to spend the extra time to re-connect everything. Just flip the lever!

Downspout diverters add a touch of class to any rain barrel installation and look like they belong there. All the rain water is re-directed just like your downspout. None of the rain water will splash out like some other brands.
