Fiskars Rain Barrel Diverter Pro Kit (5962)
The Fiskars Diverter Pro is a good choice for diverting rainwater from your downspout to your rain barrel. It filters out debris while capturing rainwater and can connect to multiple rain barrels. One of the nice features about the diverter is the removable filter and the transparent door so you can see when the filter needs cleaned.
The Diverter Pro channels water into the rain barrel until the barrel is full then it automatically returns waters back through the downspout to carry the water away from your house and foundation. The diverter has two outputs which allow you to install rain barrels on both sides of the diverter. You can cap one off and only use one rain barrel if you choose to do so.
The Diverter Pro comes with couplers to fit standard 2” X 3” and 3” X 4” downspouts. The kit also includes connector hose, rain barrel connector, filter and a detailed instruction guide. Rain barrels must be purchased separately. The diverter is made of a durable matte-finished polypropylene that is strong enough to withstand the elements. One thing to remember when installing is that you should use a sealant around all connections. This will ensure a water tight seal that prevents leaks.
