It depends on how easily you can saw your downspout. You need to cut about half an inch of it to fit the diverter. Video shows how to do it with the downspout still attached to the gutter. If possible, it'll be a lot easier if you can take it out for the cutting step. Drilling the inlet hole into the barrel is very easy with the right bit (not included in kit). Other thing missing from the installation kit IMO is silicone caulk for around the connections to avoid leaks (and mosquito access in the diverter). Overall though, this is a pretty easy project if you know basic use of a drill and a jigsaw.

Although not directly a part of the installation of the barrel itself, you'll also have to work on the site for it. If you expect much water pressure without elevating your barrel 1-3 ft, you're going to be disappointed. So you'll probably want to build or buy some kind of base for it to elevate the barrel enough and that can be as simple (stack cinder blocks + 2'x2' flat paving tile) or complex (build wooden structure) as you want.Of course, plan all this before you saw your downspout. Would suck to cut your downspout too low then find out the water pressure is not sufficient for your intended use, then have to elevate the barrel and replace the downspout and cut it again higher.

Yes, what shandil said. Expect v.little water pressure. I have mine on a 3ft pedestal to help but having 10 barrels in series is really what I need.

I find that interesting why would it not be legal for storing rainwater?

Watch the installation video on the page of the first one in the list. The 60 gallon.

Some places have different rules because they are probably afraid of an ecosystem imbalance if too many people stop rainwater from entering the ground.
