Product Description

We at Rain Brothers, LLC have been designing, constructing, and installing rainwater harvesting systems -- both residential- and commercial-scale -- in the Ohio Region for over eight years, and we have used virtually every rainwater downspout diverter on the market. With the diverters on the market, there are recurring problems, including:

1) Difficult installation

2) Insufficient outlet size

3) Insufficient overflow, causing diverter to back up drainage

4) Working only with the smallest downspouts (i.e., 2"x3")

Our Flex-Fit Downspout Diverter addresses these issues and offers a thoughtful, high-quality, affordable solution by being:

1) Easy to install; there is no need to cut your downspout.  Simply use a 2-1/8" hole saw to drill into your downspout and the Flexi-Fit Diverter fits right in

2) Large, 1-1/4" outlet allows plenty of water to pass to your barrel/tank

3) Large overflow opening allows water to easily pass back through the downspout once your barrel/tank is full

4) Works with both 2"x3" and 3"x4" downspouts

 

*Required for installation:

-(1) 2-1/8" hole saw

-(2) 3/4" self-tapping philips screws

-(1) Fill hose (1" PVC will also fit inside diverter)

-(1) Hose seal

-(1) Winter Cap (if you are in an area where temperatures get below freezing)

 

Installs in three easy steps:

1) Drill hole in downspout (you will need 2-1/8" hole saw for installation, which you can purchase here).  For 2"x3" downspouts, drill hole in front of downspout.  For 3"x4" downspouts, drill hole in the side of the downspout (3" side).  Ensure hole is level with inlet on barrel.  For round downspouts, try our Round Downspout Diverter.
2) Insert diverter and fasten diverter to downspout with self-tap screws
3) Attach fill hose to diverter and into barrel hose seal, and start collecting rain!

  1. So Many 5 stars...

    Posted by Unknown on 8th Jul 2014

    I just want newcomers to the website to not be suspicious of all these extraordinary reviews. How can seemingly everything have 4 or 5 stars? Because these products ROCK! If you have been searching online for a solidly made, effective diverter that doesn't cost a ton, you have found it. These guys are smart, creative and offer a high quality product at a price that allows even the timid to give 'going green' a try.


  2. works great - simple to use !

    Posted by tom on 17th Jun 2014

    works just as advertised , very simple to install.


  3. AS ADVERTISED!

    Posted by Donald S Pissott on 27th May 2014

    I have had .10 inch of rain since installation!
    However, this unit saved a big part of it. It saved me the frustration of dealing with the FISKARS PRO DIVERTER which lost 99% of a 1.60 inch rain period. All this at a fraction of the cost and a hugely easier installation!


  4. cheapest and simplest diverter

    Posted by Chi on 21st May 2014

    I originally hooked up the downspout directly to my rain barrel and the torrential downpours we get in our neck of the woods means the water quickly overcomes the barrels ability to fill and overflow properly resulting in a giant gusher of water spilling over the rain barrel and probably causing damage to my foundation.

    I bought 4 of these to restore the original downspout functionality and have high hopes for it.

    I plan to flip the diverter over for winter.


  5. An elegant solution!

    Posted by Mark on 3rd Apr 2014

    The idea of making and using a rain barrel is a neat idea until you go to the local home center and try to figure out what it is that you'll need in order to build a diverter that also works as a bypass. Without the latter, the rain barrel will just overflow and you'll have a water problem.

    This system requires that you drill 3 holes in a 2 X 3 inch downspout - one for the diverter and two for the screws that attach it to the downspout. Insert it, pipe it in to the rain barrel and you're done. In the Fall, take it out, plug the hole with the EDPM plug and the system is closed for the colder weather.

    It's an absolutely elegant, simple system.


  6. Simple and easy to install

    Posted by Unknown on 7th Nov 2013

    It was easy to install and the simplest diverted I could find but yet works very well.

    It works and it was easy to install. Rain barrel fills up quickly with every rainfall.


  8. Partial review

    Haven't installed it yet. However, the diverter appears to be of excellent quality and well worth the price. I truly like this concept of a downspout diverter. I am sure I will be happy after I get it installed.


  10. Could not be better.

    Posted by Bob on 20th Aug 2013

    Installation was a breeze. The hole saw had no problem at all cutting a nice hole in the downspout. Maybe because I had someone holding the downspout so it wouldn't vibrate too much.
    Then just compress it a bit and stick it in. I don't think there's a need to screw it to he downspout. It's in there nice and snug.
    Looking forward to the first downpour!
