Well i built a flower bed and wanted to use rain water to help water it. So i connected the downspout with some pvc pipe and a garden hose. Now the water is but to better use and distributed far enough from the house to prevent any basement leaking or wall damage.
I made this form stuff i had layign aroudn the house.
1 inch pvc pipe
3 inch pvc pipe
some odds and ends pipe / hose fittings
3 inch end cap for pvc pipe
Step 1: STEP ONE: Downspout fitting
ok i had a piece of 3 inch pipe and a end cap for it, so glued on the cap with some pvc glue. and drilled a hole into the middle of the cap.
Now i attached this old faucet part i just needed a 90 Degree bend it has a knob to open and close but i just leave it open.
