Rain barrel installation
1 Attachment(s)
I buy a rain barrel and put a downspout diverter as shown in the attached file.
I wonder whether the downspout diverter is placed too low than the top of the rain barrel. If it is placed too low, what is the solution?
Do I saw the downspout so that I can raise the downspout diverter?

yea. it's way too low. you need to use a hacksaw and relocate it so the lowest part of the hose hangs above the barrel inlet. It's easy, just take your time
