Fortunately, I noticed the potential problem with leakage at the connection of the fitting to a 2 x 3" downspout as I was installing this, and solved it with silicone sealant and extra sheet metal screws.
- The ports on either side of the unit for connecting hoses are split down the middle. I assume this is to increase flexibility, making it easier to attach the included hose. However, this also means that it leaks a bit. One layer of waterproof tape around the outside took care of this. Changing the design to use a barbed fitting would make more sense.
- I used this with the 2x3" downspout converter kit. The top is fine. The downspout fits inside the adapter. On the bottom, however, the same fitment causes it to leak at that junction. A little forethought and some silicone sealant during installation took care of this (used silicone for all connections). Again, design could be easily changed so that the adapter fits inside the downspout on the bottom, preventing leaks.
- During light rains, the diverter doesn't send as much water to the barrel as I had hoped. In theory, ALL the water should be diverted during a light rain. However, the removable screen/diverter just fits loosely in the housing and some water leaks through. Design could be improved to make a tighter seal, possibly using a gasket, while still being able to remove for cleaning.
- Why black? I would guess that 95% of downspouts are white. I would have been willing to spend a little more for white plastic from the manufacturer than live with black or have to paint it myself.
All in all, though, a great unit and certainly worth 4 stars. I'm just nit picking here so others will know exactly what to expect when they buy one.
I hooked up the diverter without any modifications and it went pretty smoothly. I waited for the first rain and then ran outside to see if my barrel was filling up. Unfortunately the diverter wasn't diverting anything - all the rainwater was just flowing right passed it and out the downspout. The next day I removed the diverter and let it dry out. I added a little caulk to the bottom fitting where the diverter meets back up with the downspout. I don't know why they designed it to fit over this pipe instead of inside of it, but maybe Fiskars will fix it eventually. Once I caulked and reassembled it it worked fine. It won't divert much if anything during a very light rain, but any significant rainfall will be captured without a problem - my 60 gallon barrel fills up pretty much anytime we get a thunderstorm.
It's easy to install but hopefully you'll read this or the other reviews before installing this yourself and will caulk the bottom as you're installing it the first time.
Also, some of the other reviews complain about the color (black), and I can see their point but I have black downspouts so it was actually a selling point for me. I can't imagine this being easy to paint, especially if you have white downspouts.
Since my rain barrels are not the air-tight variety; they have an opening with a screen insert at the top. The original setup I had was using a flexible downspout extension that fed the gutter water to the top of my barrel. With heavy rainfall, the barrel would completely gush over in all directions. The built-in overflow port on the barrel could not handle the volume. Water leaking next to foundation = : ( I wanted to at least minimize the extreme amount of water that entered the barrel, without overly restricting the flow. The Fiskars diverter allows a very good portion of the rainwater to enter. The remainder of the rainwater flows out the continuing downspout. Since I've installed these, my barrels don't become overwhelmed with water and are able to handle the flow of water and drain properly through the rain barrel's existing overflow spout. I have not been able to get the unit to stop supplying more water to the barrel when the barrel becomes full (like an airtight barrel), but it's possible I may need to play around with the height adjustments some more.
I originally purchased the "Earthminded" diverter kit. The design on these units were not nearly as good, in my opinion. At least for the size gutter I was using it on. It allowed most of the water to escape down the downspout, which caused the barrels to fill very slowly.
I would recommend the Fiskars over the Earthminded diverter.
