    This is a parts kit that is very similar to the kit used
    in the 60 RainStation Rain Barrel.



    You supply the container and we supply nearly everything
    you need to bring the rainwater from the
    downspout over to your container.



    Note: Rain Barrel container NOT included on with this Kit.

    This is a great image of the Flexi-Fit Diverter in place,
    inside of a section of 2x3 downspout.



    Once the water level in the container reaches the same
    level as the diverter, the water spills over into the
    middle of the diverter and continues down the downspout.



    IF you have a lot of debris coming down that might clog
    the diverter, we suggest you install a
    downspout filter
    above it.



    Note: Downspouts and Downspout Filters are NOT
    included with this Kit.

    This is an image of the Flexi-Fit Diverter in place,
    inside of a section of round downspout.



    Once the water level in the container reaches the same
    level as the diverter, the water spills over into the
    middle of the diverter and continues down the downspout.



    This diverter is NOT designed to capture 100 percent to the water
    coming down the downspout. In a heavy rain storm the water needs to move
    quickly after having filled your container. How much rain comes down
    the downspout? Use this rain harvesting calculator



    Note: Downspouts and Downspout Filters are NOT
    included with this Kit.

    5/5,
    "Super simple to make a rain collector with..."
    Pros - Easy to turn nearly any container into a rain water collector
    Cons - Make sure you take the rain water collector off-line for the winter so you don't damage your container - or get a stock tank heater for your container
