Why Save Rain Water Only ¼ inch of rain is needed to fill a 60 gallon barrel. Sixty gallons can cover about 100 square feet with 1 inch of water. This can go along way in offsetting garden needs in the spring and summer months when water consumption increases anywhere between 20 and 200%. Capturing rain water in a barrel before it hits the ground decreases stormwater runoff, which otherwise carries pollutants from paved surfaces into groundwater and rivers.Installation Guidelines Tools needed: a hacksaw & measuring tape Diverter attaches easily to gutter downspout Draw a line on the downspout approximately 9 inches above the top of the rain barrel Move the barrel away Use a hacksaw and cut the downspout at the line or marking Note: if a downspout bracket is below your cut, remove the bracket and place it above the cut Attach diverter and set angle The diverter is designed so that you can crimp the sides of the downspouts to fit the diverter Done! Established in 1988, the Great American Rain Barrel Company was the result of an idea conjured up by two Massachusetts school teachers to recycle shipping drums into rain barrels as inspired by those they'd seen in English gardens. The shipping barrels they'd chosen had been used to ship olives from Spain, and sometimes the olives were even cured in the barrels and so the creation of the company was thematically appropriate, given the natural synergy with their import business and the environmental implications. Now, the Great American Rain Barrel Company is a fully owned subsidiary of a food importing and packing company. They repurpose their own shipping drums into a complete water collection system in their plant in Hyde Park, MA. With the support of a loyal customer base, the Great American Rain Barrel Company is one of the largest sellers of repurposed rain barrels to communities and individual people nationwide.

1- must remain installed year round, I do not want to pull it out for winter
2- easy to divert water back into downspout
The "Save the Rain" diverter did just that. Once installed there is no need to remove it, just open and close the door as needed.
The diverter took paint well and installation went well. (the hardest part is cutting the downspout on the house, which would be required for ANY diverter)
My only request would be to have the stickers that hold the instructions and brand be a static cling or an easier to remove adhesive, to ease paint prep. But that's a small hassle.
For me at least, they just didn't work--and they were very difficult to install.
This one--Save the Rain Water Metal Diverter--works wonderfully and efficiently, and is easy to install. (I have both the 2x3 and 3x4 inch sizes).
All you have to do to install it, is cut the downspout about 9 inches above the top of your rain barrel.
This allows you to insert the downspout into the diverter. Then, the bottom of the diverter goes into the lower part of the downspout.
When you want to fill your rain barrel, just pull out the "door" that directs the rainwater from the downspout into your rain barrel.
When you have enough rain water (or have filled the barrel), just close the "door" by folding it back up so that it channels water down the downspout.
It's much easier to do all this, than it is to describe it in words. When you get the downspout diverter, you can easily see where to place it so that it will direct water into your rain barrel.
This Amazon item is fulfilled by PlumStruck, which packages the diverter carefully, so that it arrives in perfect condition.
And they ship it very promptly!
It's so good to find a product that works simply and exactly to do what you want it to do.
