How to Adapt Your Downspout

Residents are responsible for adapting their own downspout. There are two options: Option A is to install a downspout diverter, available at some hardware stores. Option B is to direct your entire downspout into the rain barrel. Installation instructions are included with the purchase of the rain barrel and are available online (external link). A general description is provided here.

  1. Using a hack saw, cut off lower portion of the downspout (above the elbow) just above the height of the rain barrel.
  2. Re-attach downspout elbow a few inches above the top of the rain barrel, to allow the rain water to empty onto the top of the rain barrel.
  3. Securely position rain barrel beneath open end of downspout elbow.
  4. Wait for rain!
