Detailed Description

The Basic Rain Diverter Kit includes the Diverter, Tubing, and necessary fittings to connect to a barrel/tank/cistern.  The diverter attaches to your gutter downspout and directs rainwater into the barrels, while sending debris that would otherwise clog screens or enter the barrel, down through the downspout.  Dual outlet ports can be used to fill 2 rain barrels at the same time.  More barrels can be added with the Connector Kit and Spigot Kits, sold separately.  The diverter works with both 2"x3” and 3"x4" size downspouts. Made in USA.  DOES NOT INCLUDE BARREL.


The Rain Diverter takes rain water from your gutter downspout and diverts it into rain barrels. While this is happening the Rain Diverter prevents: algae, mosquitoes (and other bugs), debris, critters, and barrel overflow. These problems normally require constant maintenance without the RainReserve system. Gardeners prefer to use rain water instead of tap because rain water does not contain harmful chemicals, such as: fluoride and chlorine. In fact rainwater contains nutritious chemicals, such as Nitrogen, Nitrates, and CO2. Basic Rain Diverter Kit does NOT include the parts necessary to connect (daisy chain) rain barrels/water tanks, and does NOT include the hole saw.


The RainReserve Rain Diverter has the most capabilities and features, is the most efficient, and eco-friendly diverter on the market. Installation is quick and simple using the easy to follow Installation Manual. Whether your desire is to water your lawn & garden, wash your car/boat/pets, save money on utilities, or Go GreenRainReserve is the answer.
