Point well taken. The gutters do have a good gradient and most of the time the previous plumbing was adequate for the most part. It's just during the highest torrential rainfall rate that the gutters became overwhelmed. So now I'll have a chance to see how the all-three inch downspout and inlet pipe works on the 2,500 gallon tank. :

That sort of sheet metal seems to also be used in roofing and after tornadoes or hurricanes it ends up wrapped around trees like so much wet toilet paper.

I got a new pump the other day the old one packed it in (electrical problem ,I will have a tinker and have it as a spare to use on the next tank or back up)
