Flex Elbow for attaching from downspout to discharge into barrel opening. The 2x3 inch Flex Elbow will extend from 8 to 18 inches long and fits the standard 2x3 rectangular or up to 3x3 square downspouts. The 3 x 4 inch flex elbow fits a 3x4" downspout and extends from 25 to 55 inches long.
Flex elbows make it very easy to wrap a downspout around the corner of a building or house in order to better conceal the Rain Barrel. They also make installation of discharge into Rain Barrel easier, without having to modify aluminum or plastic downspouts.
Simply cut the downspout where you want to install flex elbow and then slide it in place. You will need no other tools to install other than a saw to cut downspout. Flex Elbows come in two sizes: 2x3 downspout & 3x4 downspout.
* Flex elbows are not required for rain barrel function, and are just one method of getting the rain water into the rain barrel. Another alternative is a downspout diverter.
