Step 6: Add the downpipe diverter

downpipe¬†diverterThe next major task is to fit the downpipe diverter to the dowpipe. I used a simple hacksaw to cut a section from the downpipe. Make sure you do not cut too much off! It’s easy to do! Remember that some of the downpipe has to sit inside of the diverter, which means that what you cut has to be less than the length of the diverter. (In the photo here you can see the end of the diverter: actually its the pice of downpipe I added to the end of the diverter to give the setup extra reach.)
