Until the new instruction sheet is completed here are the basics for installation.

Place the rain barrel as close to the downspout as you can. Make sure you have a secure and level base for it to live on.

The round end of a white flex pipe fits into the round in the top of the diverter box on the rain barrel.

Insert it into the top of the rain barrel and stretch it out and over to the downspout. BEFORE you do anything else make sure you can remove the diverter tube so you can clean it out and rotate it seasonally! Do not put the diverter flat up against the house - ask me how I know not to do this (again) :-p - Then mark the downspout and cut.

Slip white flex pipe over downspout and secure with gutter screws if necessary - round end sits in the top of the diverter.

Black overflow pipe can be secured with a couple of gutter screws too if necessary. Stretch out and do not point the overflow at the neighbor or they might do the same thing to you one day;-)

You have the option of placing the drains at any location. Make sure the supplied drill bit is screwed together tightly so it does not wobble while drilling. We suggest you place one outlet close to the bottom to ensure you get nearly all the water and can drain it for winter too. You may or may not want to install the second drain. Most folks place the watering can or bucket they intend to use next to the barrel to determine the location of the second drain. Measure twice - drill once:-)
