Every gardener knows that the key to a successful growing season is water, water, and more water. But with droughts and shortages hitting parts of the U.S. and Canada, keeping flowers flourishing and the veggie patch productive can be a costly proposition. The Fiskars Rain Barrel System is an easy way to collect, store, and dispense this valuable resource, so you can use it to provide much-needed moisture for your vegetable garden, container planters, and even indoor plants.
Diverter Diverter channels water from gutter downspout to the barrel. The Downspout Diverter Makes the Difference Designed to easily integrate into your home's existing downspouts, Fiskars worry-free diverter kits, included with most Fiskars Rain Barrels (not included with the Fiskars Saguaro Rain Barrel system), channel rainwater from your downspout into the rain barrel. When the rain barrel is full, the diverter channels the water back to the downspout and away from your home's foundation. A worry-free solution for easy access to water to perk up your tomatoes or refresh your rose bushes.
Once the barrel is full, the diverter will direct the water down the remainder of the downspout. How Do The Downspout Diverters Work? The downspout diverter channels water from the gutter downspout to the barrel. Once the barrel is full, the diverter will bypass the water down the remainder of the downspout.
Both downspout diverter systems are designed to work with standard 2-by-3-inch or 3-by-4-inch downspouts. These two sizes are standard for most homes in the United States.
Please note: all Fiskars rain barrels can be upgraded by purchasing the advanced DiverterPro system (model 5962; sold separately).
Diverter Both downspout diverter systems are designed to work with standard 2-by-3-inch or 3-by-4-inch downspouts. Distinctive Smart Designs Consumer research helped drive the development of these functional, distinctive designs. The back of the barrels sit flush against the exterior of the home, while neutral colors blend well with nature and most exterior home finishes.
How much rain will I collect? The amount of rain your Fiskars Rain Barrel System will collect depends on two things: The amount of rain that comes down on your roof, and how much roof area drains into the gutter and downspout where you've installed the diverter. As an example, if you have a 500-square-foot roof section feeding a downspout, it will take about two tenths of an inch of rain to fill a 52-gallon barrel. A roof area of only 1000 square feet can provide approximately 600 gallons of water during a one-inch rainfall.
Diverter Convenient space below spigot for easily filling watering cans. Salsa I Rain-Barrel System The Salsa I Rain-Barrel System offers an easy way to collect, store, and dispense rainwater from your roof in style. System includes 58-gallon rain barrel, cover, worry-free downspout connector kit, and threaded spigot for easy garden-hose attachment.
