A Fluid Solution to Conservation.
RainReserve™ is easy to install and maintain, and is adaptable to any 2"x3" or 3"x4" downspout. The RainReserve™ Diverter Kits work in tandem with a rain barrel, and we have several large tank options to meet your needs.
RainReserve™ attaches to your downspout and diverts rainwater from your gutter system into the rain barrel while allowing leaves and other large debris to pass through the diverter and out the downspout. The result is naturally soft rainwater available and ready whenever you need it to water gardens and lawns, trees and houseplants, or for other non-potable uses.
When the rain barrel is full, the water will be re-diverted through the RainReserve Diverter and directed back to your gutter, therefore keeping in tact your original water drainage system.
You should disconnect your rain barrel before the first hard freeze. If you empty all water out of your barrel, you can keep it attached for a few additional weeks; just make sure you are completely emptying it every time it fills.
We recommend washing the barrel when disconnecting it for the season. Use an environmentally friendly solution of 2 tsp. of castile soap + 2 tsp. vinegar or lemon juice per gallon of water for cleaning, swishing the solution around inside the barrel then rinsing the inside of the barrel with a garden hose. A concentrated spray nozzle will work well to remove residue from the inside of the barrel.
You should wait until the first good rain of the springtime has fallen before reattaching your rain barrel. The first good rain should flush considerably more debris from the roof and gutters than subsequent rains. Attaching your rain barrel before this point may increase the chances of clogging the diverter.
