Simple, best way to connect rain barrel to downspout: Downspout diverter

http://www.rainbrothers.com
Introducing Rain Brothers’ new automatic downspout diverter and DIY rain barrel kit for use in creating your own rainwater harvesting system.
We at Rain Brothers, LLC have been designing, constructing, and installing rainwater harvesting systems — both residential- and commercial-scale — in the Ohio Region for over eight years, and we have used virtually every rainwater downspout diverter on the market. With the diverters on the market, there are recurring problems, including:
1) Difficult installation
2) Insufficient inlet size into the barrel/tank
3) Insufficient overflow, causing diverter to back up drainage
4) Working only with the smallest downspouts (i.e., 2″x3″)

Our new diverter addresses these issues and offers a thoughtful, high-quality, affordable solution.
For under , you get:
*Three hole saws (for drilling/installing valves and downspout diverter)
*3/4″ gate valve/garden hose valve
*3/4″ drain nipple with cap
*Two threaded rubber grommets for water-tight and easy installation of valve and drain plug
*1-1/2″ rubber grommet for water-tight inlet into tank/barrel
*3′ of flexible hose to link barrel/tank to downspout diverter
*Rubber “automatic” downspout diverter (works with 2″x3″, 3″x4″, 3″ round, and 5″ commercial downspouts)
*One “do not drink water” label for your new rainwater harvesting system
