I did a lot of research before buying a diverter, and am still happy with this one. It does what it's supposed to do - divert rain from the downspout to a rain barrel until the barrel is full, then automatically send everything down the spout. Installation was rather easy and the quality seems fine for what it is. I like the fact that you can hook up a barrel on either side - or both! I hid my barrel around the corner so it's on the back side of my garage and out of sight, and used less than half the supplied hose. Here are a few improvements I would recommend, however:

- 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?

Thank goodness for all the honest reviews and tips. I have a 2X3 downspout (adapters come with the kit) and I could see ALL the issues reported in the other reviews. I installed everything using silicone caulk in ALL the connections. I also applied a LIGHT amount of silicone at the base of the screen. Over the past two days of heavy rain, filled six 55 gallon barrels about 3/4 full or about ~250 gallons. I rate this as a 4 star "good" diverter but it could be a 5 star EXCELLENT diverter with just a little modification by Fiskars.

I am a commercial plumber by trade and living in TX, water restrictions are coming down. There will be two avenues for water collection and use. Rain water and Condensate water from the AC. My AC makes 8 gallons a day. I looked far and wide for the best cost VS function on units like this and this wins hands down. Simple and easy to install. Easy to clean out. Alot of the others need removed to clean. This one has an access door and a removeable screen so in winter you can just remove that part and it is a straight run down spout again. To address a few of the "issues" people have had. If you have 3 inch gutters, silicon in the top and bottom adapter and screw it tight before install. It won't leak. Silicon in the leader to the adapter and screw with self tappers on 4 sides. It won't leak. One thing I did find is that the diverter/ screen piece did not fit in tight enough to get the maximum collection rate I desired. NO BIG DEAL. I took a self tapping screw and from the inside, thru the clean out cover, I pushed down on the screen/diverter piece and then ran the large head self tapping screw thru the back and directly above the top bar of the screen. This locked it down into the inside channel. The diverter is plastic so it sealed the screw. Now I get full collection as fast as the water will go down the drain tube. But still a wee bit of room to drain the diverter over a period of 2 minutes when the rain stops. Being this diverter has two outlets, one on either side, running both tubes to a barrel on each side will collect much more water then having barrels linked in series. people complained of the color? get a can of krylon plastic's paint. My leaders are hunter green and you can't even tell I have a diverter there now. I was amazed at just how water these will collect.Read more ›

I only have a few days and one rain storm to go by but I have an issue with the design of this unit. Many folks have 2X3 downspouts for which Fiskars has provided adapters. Unfortunately, they are not engineered to fit inside of the downspout as it runs below the unit. The unit actually is installed on the outside of the bottom downspout. This virtually guarantees leakage as the water that is not diverted to the rain barrel moves along the sides of the Fiskars unit and comes out in rivlets all along the connection. A call to Fiskars confirmed the design flaw with a suggestion to add caulk. Initial call to customer service was rude, indicating that none of them leaked. Engineering only agreed to notify design of the issue. Too bad as the unit has promise. If it need caulk they should say so and provide it.

I purchased six of these Fiskars DiverterPro units from Amazon. They all are installed and in service on downspouts around my house. I chose Fiskars over RainReserve, Oatey, and Earthminded diverters because it works on my larger 3"x4" downspouts without needing any adapters and was competitively priced. I also like the slotted debris screen to help keep large material out of the barrel and the clear window to see inside. I appreciate that it is a complete kit including the hose and adapter for the rain barrel. Note: Because it comes in black, I sanded the plastic and spray painted the outside with a paint that bonds to plastic to better match my house color. The paint is holding up nicely after several months of service.

Pros: fits 3"x4" downspout without needing the included adapters
Incudes all parts needed to hook up to a new rain barrel.
Screen helps keep material out of the barrel
Can view inside through the clear plastic cover

Cons: Takes some finessing to get a cut downspout to slide into the openings. Tip: squeeze the downspout corners to make them more square. You will need a hack saw to cut your downspout, which can be tricky to get a straight cut without jagged edges.
Is not as efficient at diverting water into the rain barrel as I expected, especially for water is falling down the front wall of the downspout.
Some minor leakage around the upper connection during heavy downpours.
The screen is the diverter mechanism. It has to go into the body correctly or will not work. Took me a couple of trys to get the first one right.
The height of the diverter hose has to be very close to the height of the rain barrel inlet.
