    Definitely had a rough start with these Rain Barrels. The first one had a Leak at the very bottom, a small drop of water must not of been sealed properly from the manufacturer. However that drip would empty my tank slowly and defeated the purpose . The second one has held up pretty good im rating it 4 stars due to having to repurchase and return the old product at the store when it should of worked from the start also the plastic filter at the top is terrible i installed it properly and its bent i had to add extra screws than the 2 provided. In the end im happy with the product cant wait to put it to good use. Once more rain comes

    The picture shows a drainage hookup in the back but it was not there. It does have a drainage opening in the front so the over flow rain water pours down the front of the barrel.

    We’ve had this for about a week so the longevity and durable is yet to be seen. The setup is nice on the side of our home – the gutter installers did this same day as gutter install. The water goes right in and after a couples rains we tested it out. There is no water pressure, so it does seem to be usable for a sprayer. However, it can accommodate a steady flow of water for plants from an attached hose. We coupled with the stand of the same brand and are happy with the purchase.

    This is a very sturdy barrel. I appreciate the flat back allowing me to put it tight against the wall. This style comes in different colors or styles to suit your preferences. I am not real impressed with the top. It has a rectangular shaped opening with a plastic filter covering it to keep bugs out, but I think I would have prefered a square opening on top to accommodate a 4×3 down spout from the rain gutter. I used a rain diverter installed in my down spout and ran a hose into the barrel which I had to drill out using a 1 inch hole saw. I encourage buying the RTS matching pedestal.

  5. Professional Homeowner

    The price was decent and we did not need anything aesthetic, so this fit the bill. They seem sturdy enough. However, a few things to consider: The drain tap is all plastic, so it is weak. The overflow is directly over the drain tap and leaks down on to it, this drain is not threaded so attaching a hose to route the water away from the unit requires modification. The screen grills on top had to be trimmed to fit properly.

    Was full of tiny bits of plastic tat I had to get out with a wet vac. The plastic piece around the spout leaks.

  7. Cherie B

    I like the flat back that fits flush against the wall. I liked being able to cut a small hole in plastic screen for A/C hose because that was the reason for the purchase: to capture HVAC condensation outside the house for later use on my tomato and pepper plants.
    There is a tiny seepage from the bottom of plastic gasket where the faucet attaches. I suggest being aware of this when determining location. For me it is no problem as the caladiums planted near the base of the barrel love moisture.

    It takes only three cinder blocks to raise the barrel a convenient height for filling water cans or attaching a garden hose.

  8. Kelly

    Love the look. You do have to drill the hole for the hose connector, don’t believe I seen that in description & was relieved that I had the tools necessary to do (1in drill bit). Figured I’d inform others that may have limited tools on hand.

  9. Angel

    This works really well. Installation is straight forward and does exactly what is advertised. Managed to get it filled up after two nights of rain. The back portion isn’t distorted from the water inside. The overflow outlet is NOT on the side, its on the front. Its very sturdy and I’d buy another one!

  10. Joan

    Fast shipping. All parts were included along with printed directions and handy wipes. You do have some assembly – need your own drill with 1-inch piece to drill a hole for overflow at the top of the barrel – but it was easy to do and took about 10 minutes to set up. It was much lighter than I expected and easy to move to the side of my house. You will need some cement blocks to put underneath so you have room to put a bucket to get water. The only thing is I would have preferred a large square hole at the top instead of a rectangular one, but those kinds were more expensive. For the price – it’s a good deal.

  11. Joan

    I bought this a week before hurricane Ian and I am glad I installed it. It takes a bit of installation. Drilling in the side was easy, but the top screws for the mesh were a bit of a hassle. It filled up very quickly from the rain, and I actually am considering a second one. Just make sure that you put it high on blocks so you have room to but a watering can underneath. It is really light weight and I had no problem carrying it to the back after delivery. Really pleased.

    Affordable rain water container

  13. JAX GARDENER

    This worked perfect for me. My backyard will flood during heavy rains and this definitely helps divert some of the rain and I also use the water for my vegetable garden.

  14. Milt

    Well-made and easy to install serves our purpose of rain collection to a tee. Can be collect water from a down spout diverter or directly under a down spout. Light enough (when empty) to move around and place as needed. Attractive designed thick plastic I liked it so much I ordered a second one.

  15. Mr Mikey

    easy to put in place but the faucet is low on the Barrell ( which it needs to be) making it a little difficult to hook up a hose . I just put it on a couple of 2x4s to lift. I think a couple of landscaping stones would look better

  16. Tyler

    They delivered my product on the expected date. Easy to install the spigot. When the barrel is full. I noticed the flat backing had bowed out due to the weight of the water.

  17. Anonymous

    This was easy to assemble and worked well after a rain we recently had. It doesn’t really work with a hose (not enough pressure), so I will probably get the base too just to make it easier to put a watering can underneath. I also liked that this was made of recycled materials, and of course that we’re able to collect rain water, especially given the drought and the climate crisis. I plan to get a second one considering how quickly it filled up after one rain. Highly recommend!

    Exactly as described. Had a problem with 1 of the 4 I ordered and the company replaced it immediately. No hassles.

  19. Anonymous

    I like the flat back so I can butt it against the wall

  20. Customer

    The barrels were good. I was pleased with those. I bought three barrels. Each barrel should have had two hose barbs. One barrel had two hose barbs. The other two barrels had no hose barbs.

  21. Dick Seabrook

    Light weight and easy to install replacement. Works fine so far. I’m always a little worried about how long the plastic ones last — it’s only been a couple weeks — I hope for several years anyway.

    This is a nice design and great size. Love that it is flat on the back. Bought 1 then 4 more to put on each gutter. Now I can water my garden and flowers without increasing my water bill. My plants also appreciate it because they are watered more often than before.

  23. Shar

    Just right size to keep. Water at the chicken coop and not have frozen pipes

  24. watersaver

    Has all the parts. Easy setup. I like that the back fits to to wall.

  25. BigDaddyCool

    Does the trick for what I needed it for. They’re quality too.

    Water barrel, comes with spigot. See how it goes with freezing weather.

  27. maxr

    I bought two. they both leak at the place where spigot attaches. The threaded adapted is glued with something that does not hold it in place. I think this is very poor design and execution. it seems unrepairable since I don’t know what kind of adhesive to use. the pressure is rather high and this piece needs to hold in place very strongly

  28. jimmyreno

    This is the 3rd unit I have purchased. Works just as described. Parts are plastic, just don’t over tighten or use with force. Thinking about a 4th. Looks good and sits flat against the house. Very pleased.
