    Each order comes with two Drought Busters, which connect to two different downspouts.

    Now there's a quick, easy and inexpensive way to make better use of rainwater even if you don't have a rain barrel.

    The Drought Buster gutter attachment Harvest rain water from your gutter system without a rain barrel. (Hose is not included.)

    Drought Buster Downspout Rainwater Redistributor Features:

  • Easily connects to a standard garden hose.
  • Diverts rain water from a gutter to a hose.
  • Easily attaches to a residential gutter system.
  • Waters your yard whenever it rains.
  • 1" of rain on an average roof gives you over 1,000 gallons of water for your garden or trees.
  • Saves on water bills.
  • Easy to install. Easy to clean.


  • Easy to Use!
    The Drought Buster has two different installation options to match your existing downspout. It fits a standard, 2" x 3" downspout. It has an overflow outlet so that your rain gutters will not back up during a heavy downpour. It fits the male or female end of the gutter.

    This is a great companion product even if you are using a rain barrel, because you can use it on the other downspouts where you don't have a barrel set up.

    You can also use it in combination with the Garden Watersaver on the same downspout as your rain barrel so that you continue to use rainwater effectively even after your barrel fills up!

    Approximate size: 6 1/2" x 3.5" x 2.5".

    I was excited to tap into a downspout where we didn’t have a rain barrel. We found that any time it rains more than a sprinkle, there is too much water coming out of the downspout to be able to be funneled into the hose. The excess water tends to go over the sides of the plastic insert which then misses our concrete diverter under the downspout entirely. So all excess water ended up draining down near our foundation. :-(

    Although this should work great in theory, it really doesn’t work that great. For any water to effectively travel through a hose elsewhere, you need some kind of water pressure. There just isn’t enough water pressure generated from a down spout. So unfortunately here, most of the water collects within the device simply to leak out through the path of least resistance. From what I gather, only 50% of the water (if even that) travels through the hose while the rest leaks out where the device connects to your downspout. Unless you reinforce the connection, this product is sort of a lost cause.
