Product Overview

We tested dozens of spigots and bib-cocks for our rain barrels and this was the best we found. This solid brass spigot uses a quick activating, quarter turn ball valve with a large aperture for high water flow rates. This kit replaces the plastic gate valve spigot included with all EarthMinded products or add a second spigot to replace the bottom drain assembly. If you regularly fill watering cans, this is a must have.

I can't get inside my rain barrel, so will this spigot work out ok if installed with just a washer and caulk? Thanks.
Asked by: Lynn
Dave: Thanks for responding. I would be drilling a hole for the spigot that I buy, but now I've decided to use a bulkhead fitting with the string method. I think that would be the best way so as to avoid leaking. I can access the barrel for that.

Can I screw this into a PVC bulkhead, or will the PVC crack?

Can I screw this into a PVC bulkhead, or will the PVC crack?
Asked by: Julie
The Inlet end of the spigot is a standard 3/4" male pipe thread (MNPT). We can not advise about the suitability of the PVC bulkhead fitting as it is not our item. Regards the EarthMinded Team

Brass Spigot Upgrade is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bought two brass spigots for a rain barrel. One was... Bought two brass spigots for a rain barrel. One was fine, the other arrived with a loose handle. The lock nut holding it on was defective and couldn't be tightened. It was obvious there was a problem as soon as I took it out of the box. It's disappointing it was allowed out of the factory and/or warehouse in this condition. It seemed like too much trouble to return it, so I bought a new lock nut and repaired it myself. The spigots themselves are superior to the plastic spigot that came with the rain barrel, because they provide a much fuller, faster flow and, with luck, will be more durable.

Also, the lock nut above the red handle kept falling off because the set screw was too short for this style of handle. Had to use super glue to keep it in place.

This is a well made product intended to replace the plastic part that comes stock with the rain-barrel kits. Works well and is the correct size for the OEM holes in the barrels. Other brass spigots i ordered, not so much!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for rain barrel This brass spigot arrived in good order as advertised. I bought this to replace a cheap "brass" spigot on a rain barrel I also bought at Home Depot 1 year ago. The spigot was a regular "turn the knob" type which was actually made of weak pot-metal and broken off easily. I then unwisely bought a water heater ball-valve spigot as a replacement, but the water flow is far too low to be useful in a rain barrel. After returning it I purchased this brass ball-valve spigot, and its excellent for the rain barrel task -- easy to open and close, full-blast water flow to fill the watering can. I'd recommend using teflon tape to screw it into a polyethylene rain barrel. Overall, very solid product, reasonable price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beware of the size We bought this to replace a leaky plastic spigot on our rainbarrel which we've had for quite some time. The problem is that the spigot is labeled as 3/4", but that's not actually the size - it was too big. We had to get a connector that would connect to the part of the spigot that is supposed to go in the rain barrel but was smaller on the other end to actually fit in the rain barrel. We had to look at a plumbing website to figure out the sizes - apparently in the plumbing world, sizes are not for what you might think they are. Anyway, once we got that piece and a washer for each side, it finally worked. No, more leaks, the flow is good, and the handle is sturdy.
