These rain barrels were a great purchase.
Purchased this particular barrel because it was made of recycled material and was a perfect color for us. We put them on some landscape blocks so that my watering can fits under the brass spigot. We purchased 1 and had it delivered to Home Depot (no shipping charge ). We were very pleased so ordered 3 more (1 for each downspout). Since we bought 3, they were delivered directly to our home free of charge. I only wish the screen that catches the debris from the gutter could be easily removed for

cleaning. Hopefully they will serve us well for many years.
A very nice rain barrel
This is a very nice rain barrel at an excellent price. A big plus is the removable top, seldom found in rain barrels. That removal top allows the barrel to be used simply as a water storage device in and of itself, allowing easy storage of excess household water as well. The one desirable would be to locate the spigot lower/closer to the bottom of the barrel. After all, it is easy enough to place the barrel on a platform of cinder blocks to gain the height needed to utilize that lower positioned spigot.
Best rain barrel
I need rain barrels with easily removable lids, as I have a very simple set-up for rainwater collection (no downspouts) and I do most of my watering with a watering can. Although you can use the screws to fasten the lid, you don't have to. The lid fits perfectly and will stay on without the screws in high winds. Unobtrusive color, very sturdy, great value. I'll likely order another one!
