Gutter diverter for rain barrel - Knowledgebase Question

Does Home Depot carry a downspout diverter for rain barrels? I want to hook the rain barrel up to water the garden this year but I am not sure how to go about it. I don't want to start cutting into my downspout unless I have a plan of attack. Any info will be appreciated. Thanks, Diane Raschal

You may want to simply remove the downspout and hang a chain in its place on the gutter. The water will flow down the chain and into the rain barrel. There are other things available - just talk to one of the staff members at your local Home Depot. Best wishes with your new rainbarrel!
