The rain diverter kit is for connecting a water butt to a rain down pipe. This kit will fit any standard 68mm round or 65cm square plastic down pipes. It is not suitable for use with cast iron down pipes. Ideal for collecting rain that falls on your house, shed or greenhouse roof directly from your rain down pipe. NB Do not use an electric drill if the Butt contains any water. Includes: 1 x Rain Diverter 1 x 20mm Connector 1 x Washer 1 x Nut 1 x 500mm Hose
Fitting Instructions: Take the lid off the water butt. If your water butt is not predrilled then you will need to drill a 25mm hole to fit the rain diverter. Drill a 25mm hole near the top of the water butt on the side closest to the down pipe (some water butts may have drill points indicated). Push connector through the washer from inside the butt, then fit and tighten the nut on the outside to form a seal. Position water butt with tap facing forward and adjust to down pipe. If using a stand place the butt on it. Mark the down pipe 10mm below the top of the butt. Mark again 30mm below this point, using a hacksaw. Cut out this section. Fit rain diverter with square end up into the cut section of the down pipe. Release any clips supporting the down pipe in order to insert the rain diverter body and refit once diverter is in place.
