A downpipe diverter is attached to an existing downpipe to “channel” water where you need it. Rainwater could be diverted into a rain barrel or into a corrugated pipe that leads to another part of your yard. Rainwater could also be diverted to a flower bed or a garden optimizing your rainwater harvest. You could even install a gutter extension (attached with a ZipHinge of course!) that will flow the water away from your home to prevent any potential flooding.
John doesn’t like downpipes lying across your sidewalks or water washing out your interlock walkway. In this video he explains why a downpipe diverter is a solution to some of these common homeowner problems.
