One more effort to being more “green” around my place. “Free water” is always a good thing and it makes me wonder if Grandma, her sisters, her cousins and her friends are looking down and wondering why it took me this long to get this far. This is more thing that I can check off my list of things to get done.
Now all that I need is some rain to come and fill this up. The engineering on how it diverts water from the downspout into the rain barrel is very simple. How it keeps it from overflowing is simple enough as well. Now the real question comes down to whether or not I assembled everything correctly. There are instructions that came with this. Fortunately, the instructions were in picture form and hopefully even I can follow them.
