With the pipe in position, measure it to the correct size, then remove it again to cut. Here the pipe is rigid, but some may be flexible.
First push the pipe into the socket section of the diverter, and then into the water-butt coupling.
When the fitting is completed, wait until it rains to test that everything is working correctly. Remember that the diverter unit should be disassembled from time to time to remove any debris from the filter. It is always best to try to prevent debris getting into the pipe in the first place by using leaf guard on your gutters.
