We at Rain Brothers, LLC have been designing, constructing, and installing rainwater harvesting systems -- both residential- and commercial-scale -- in the Ohio Region for nearly a decade, 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 inlet size into the barrel/tank
3) Insufficient overflow, causing diverter to back up drainage
4) Working only with the smallest downspouts (i.e., 2"x3")
The Universal FlexiFit Downspout Diverter Kit addresses these issues and offers a thoughtful, high-quality, affordable solution. It connects your existing rain barrel to a high-quality downspout diverter system.
For under $30, you get:
*Two hole saws for drilling/installing valves and downspout diverter (2-1/8", 1-1/2")
*1-1/2" rubber seal for water-tight inlet into tank/barrel (note: hose must be installed through side of barrel for overflow mechanism to work properly)
*31" accordion style Flexifit fill hose to link barrel/tank to downspout diverter
*Rubber Flexi-Fit downspout diverter : choose either Standard 2x3", Rectangular 3x4", or Round (3" and 4" round downspouts). Click here for more information on the Round Downspout Diverter.
*Two self-tapping screws
*A winterizing cap for quick and easy winterization of your downspout.
Flexi-Fit Downspout Diverter installs in three easy steps:
1) Drill hole in downspout (hole saw included in kit). 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. Click here for more information on the Round Downspout Diverter.
2) Insert diverter and fasten diverter to downspout with included self-tap screws
3) Attach fill hose to diverter and into barrel, and start collecting rain!
Everything is included for an easy install. Works great. I wish I would have found it sooner. Jim on 23rd Nov 2020
Bought this because my wife decided she wanted a rain barrel. So easy to set up and use. Rained the next day and captured so much water on its first use. Sharing the info with friends on facebook so they get a chance to do this in their gardens also.
Took about 2 minutes to drill hole and install the diverter. Just SO DANG EASY! Scott from Tulsa on 10th Nov 2020
I purchased this product and when it arrived it was very easy to install. They provided all the necessary drill bits and screws to attach the diverter to the downspout. I would buy this again over and over. Mark Morten on 24th Jul 2020
Great kit! Everything you need. Excellent price and easy installation. Fast shipping too. Thanks Rain Brothers Matt on 28th May 2020
I installed this kit a few days ago and the rain barrel is already full! It was easy to install and works perfectly. Michael Immerman on 24th Aug 2019
The kit had all the items needed, including the hole-drill bits making the diverter easy to install. The reason I gave the kit a 4-star instead of 5 stars, is my concern about the durability of the "accordion" hose connecting the downspout to the barrel. I think a more durable flexible hose might be more durable. Otherwise, this is a very clever product and comes with clear, easy, and complete instructions. VaMos on 18th Jun 2019
I recently ordered and easily installed the rain gutter diverter and hose hook up to my barrel. It rained the next day, filled the entire 50 gallon container up to the level of the hose entrance and excess water diverted back to the gutter as it should! Works really well! Good job Rain Brothers! I like the fact that it works as described and shown on the video. Unknown on 16th May 2019
The rain downspout diverter kit for my 3x4 gutter worked perfectly. It had everything I needed to connect my rain barrel and the two included hole saw drill items worked great. Item shipped the very next morning after placing a late night order. Arrived in 2 days via USPS.

This was so simple to install. I did not have to cut my downspout in half. Works as advertised. Great Product . Lucky to have found it! Larry on 30th May 2018
We had such good luck using this kit for our 1st rain barrel (purchased at a Soil and Water Conservation Service event) that we got a 2nd barrel and a 2nd kit this year. Easy hook up and after last night's rain have plenty of water to keep new plants moist without dealing with a hose. Unknown on 25th Apr 2018
