I needed an alternative way to keep from having a drain pipe across a walk at the back of my house. I couldn't go under the walk because of other lines underground at that spot. This wall is only 6" deep so I could use it and not block the walk with a traditional rain barrel. I had to mount into block, so I am just hoping that the massive weight of 62 gallons of water will not pull the anchors loose from the wall. Other than that, it is good so far. It has rained once and the wall filled up very quickly, but it was a downpour. I hope it takes longer in the future! I cannot find any of the accessories from the company or home depot, even though they are listed on the instruction manual, so I am afraid that they are no longer making this product. May want to get it while it lasts if you are really interested.

I bought 8 of these and installed 6 so far. I had problems with missing parts on the first four but when I ordered the remaining four it was better packaged and all parts were there. The company has improved their shipping packages so the parts don't go missing. I installed them myself with additional parts purchased at my local Home Depot. They are installed against a garage where I previously had problems with flooding from the downspout. These solved my flooding problem and I now have a drip irrigation system for the plants next to my driveway.
Follow the instructions carefully if you want to connect multiple tanks as the spacing between tanks is important, although they are not difficult to take off and move if you drain the water out. My downspout connection is a little complicated because I needed something to keep the leaves from the neighbors tree from getting in, and I wanted to flush the first few gallons from each storm, because the roof gets pretty dirty. I couldn't be happier with the system. It was a bit intimidating to install because I had to drill holes into my garage wall, but that was the hardest part. You will need a hole saw and drill to install if connecting multiple tanks.

THERE ARE A LOT OF RAIN BARRELS ON THE MARKET FOR SALE, THERE ARE ROUND OR TRIANGULAR IN SHAPE, BUT THIS RAIN BARRELS IS THE BEST SO FAR. IT CAN HOLD 62 GALLONS OF WATER. I BOUGHT MY RAIN BARRELS AT HOME DEPOT AND I PICKED IT UP IN THE STORE SO THAT I CAN SAVE MONEY ON SHIPPING CHARGES.
IT SUPER THIN AND CAN BE INSTALL ALONGSIDE A FENCE AND THE AMAZING PART IS THAT THIS BARREL CAN ADAPT TO YOUR GARDEN AND YOU CAN EVEN PLACE SMALL PLANTS FOR DECORATION.
INSTALLATION IS SOMEWHAT A LITTLE BIT TRICKY BUT A DO IT YOURSELF GUY LIKE MYSELF CAN INSTALL THIS RAIN BARRELS IN AN HOUR OR LESS.
SO FAR I INSTALLED MY SECOND RAIN BARREL AND MAYBE I WILL GET ANOTHER ONE IN THE FUTURE. I REALLY DO RECOMMEND THIS BARREL. THANK YOU

Probably a good product in some circumstances, but takes a lot of work to mount. The first problem is that the packaging doesn't include all the necessary parts for using the water--no exit spout, no overflow spout (you have to drill these yourself) and no faucets or plugs included. The instructions recommend hiring a plumber to install these.
You'll have to decide for yourself whether the benefits are worth the trouble.

It took 3 orders to get all the parts to arrive. The first order arrived with no directions or parts and not knowing what was supposed to be included, I took it. Later I discovered that there were several missing items that had not been shipped. A few phone calls to the Home Depot on line phone people finally was successful in getting all the missing parts to me. Home Depot people were very helpful once I discovered the error so it must have been a vendor shipping error. The concept for the item is great but the journey was unnecessary, but educational.
I recommend the item but make sure if you order that you check to see if all parts for installation are there before taking the item home.
