Downspout disconnection and rain barrel installation

  1. Ensure the ground beneath the rain barrel is firm and level. You may want to consider using a patio stone as a base. Raising the rain barrel off the ground also improves water flow out of the barrel through the hose.
  2. Cut the downspout 4 to 6 inches above the top of the barrel using a hacksaw and tin snips. Keep the remaining portion of the downspout so it can be reconnected when the rain barrel is winterized. 
  3. Install a short, flexible pipe or a downspout elbow onto the cut downspout to direct water into the opening at the top of the barrel. 
  4. Run the overflow hose into a nearby garden and away from your foundation.
