A simple way to do your Rain Gutter Regattas is to get 1 long plastic gutter and cut it in half. You will need need 4 plastic end caps -- 2 left and 2 right used a quarter turn 1/2" brass threaded Hose Bibb from B & K Mueller NSF61-9 with red knob. At Home Depot it is $7.59 C244-231 Inside the gutter I have a CPVC plastic Female Apapt. size 1/2" NTBCO #4703 at Home Depot A-232-475 which is 58 cents and then really caulk it inside and out.
I leave a large Home Depot orange bucket below the faucet in case someone decides to turn it on. I use a wooden base to hold the 2 gutters in.
