NOTE: A RAIN BARREL IS NOT INCLUDED! Recycled plastic barrels are cheap to buy but expensive to ship, so a barrel is not included in this kit. See ideas on how to find inexpensive recycled barrels locally here.
To install the diverter to a downspout on your home, drill two holes in any kind of plastic barrel, attach the spigot and the hose adapter to the barrel, and you are ready to collect and use rainwater you collect whenever you want! Complete installation instructions are included.
