Why Install a Downspout Diverter?Downspout diverters serve two essential purposes:
- They direct the water coming down from the downspout into the barrels.
- Once the barrels are full, the diverters send the water back down into the downspouts to empty it away from the structure’s foundation.
In this way, the diverter helps to ensure that the maximum amount of water is channeled into the barrels. It means no water ends up collecting at the foundation, affecting the stability and integrity of the structure.
Downspout Diverter DesignsThese features are available in two basic designs:
- Manual Diverter - The first has a manual switch in it which can be switched on to send the water into the barrels or into the downspout. This could be just a simple "y" with the switch installed in the middle. It is very similar to diverters that property owners install in outdoor hose bibs to channel the water from one house to the other.
- Automatic Diverter - In the other type of diverter, the backpressure automatically channels all the water into the downspout (standard drainage system) once the barrels fill up. You don’t need to redirect the water using a manual switch.
Diverter Installation ProcessWe can install these for you at the time you set up your rain barrel. This is the process we follow:
- The technician will place the barrel on solid, properly leveled ground near the downspout.
- They will cut the end of the downspout and then fit the diverter into the barrels.
- Most diverters are specifically designed to fit regular 2"x3" downspouts. However, we can source larger ones if required too. These are generally available in kits, and we will complete the installation systematically.
