    plastic bases from most large hardware stores or online However many people make their own One popular method is to level a 12 to 24 paving stone on the ground where you want the rain barrel Place 2 to 4 cinder blocks foundation blocks on it as a base You can cap this with another 12 to 24 square paving stone or simply sit the rain barrel on the blocks You can also build a platform from pressure treated lumber to any desired height Note that a full rain barrel weighs a lot Make sure the platform is sturdy Platforms taller than 18 may require building permits Connecting to downspouts These instructions are meant for the common case Your particular circumstances may require modifying them Begin by cutting the downspout approximately 0 2m higher than the top of the rain barrel when it is sitting on the base Downspouts are usually either aluminum or plastic and can be cut with a hacksaw or reciprocating saw If your downspouts are currently connected directly to your home s weeping system you can pull the disconnected section up from the PVC pipe it was cemented into Cap the open PVC pipe to prevent animals or debris from getting into it Note that in the City of Toronto and in many other municipalities downspouts cannot be connected to the weeping system storm sewers The downspout must direct rain water onto your property away from your house No diverters not recommended Connect a matching elbow section to the remaining downspout to direct water towards the top of the rain barrel If the disconnected downspout includes an elbow section you may be able to reuse it Otherwise you can probably find a suitable elbow in any hardware store The still connected section of downspout may need to be crimped using needle nosed pliers a little to fit inside the elbow The connection must be made so that the downspout is inserted into the elbow and not the other way around You can secure this connection with one or two self tapping metal screws If required you may cut a section of the disconnected downspout and attach it to the elbow elbow is inserted into the pipe this time to direct the water closer to the centre of the barrel where the filter is You may also need another elbow to direct water down directly into the filter This depends on your barrel Diverters recommended The better was it to attach a downspout diverter The diverter allows water to be directed to either the rain barrel or the regular downspout Diverters are useful when you shut down your rain barrel for the winter to prevent it from being cracked when water freezes inside it After draining and removing the barrel simply switch the diverter back to the regular downspout We sell a deluxe diverter kit that includes all the parts you need for most diverter installations Most big box hardware stores also sell diverters but they may
