Product Overview

  • Fills watering cans 40% faster
  • High water flow rate
  • Fits any rain barrel with 3/4 in. male pipe thread fittings
We tested dozens of spigots and bibcocks 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 and drain included with all EarthMinded products. If you regularly fill watering cans, this is a must-have.
  • Straight water path reduces turbulence and increases flow rate
  • Fills a watering can 40% faster
  • Less waiting, faster watering
  • Durable solid brass construction
  • Both spigot and drain have garden hose connection
  • Can be used with any rain barrel that accepts 3/4 in. male pipe thread fittings
  • Model # BRS-0001

Asked by: TheLambHasConquered
If you are using an EarthMinded RainStation rain barrel there should be some threaded rubber seals, that fit the hole first, then the spigot is screw into the seal, they have a triangular tab on side. I these are missing from your rain barrel please email your Name and address and we will send you replacements to info@earthmark.co

How do you install this? My broken spigot is at the bottom of my rain barrel which is about 36" in height. I think my arm would need to be another 18 inches longer to reach it from the inside and screw on the new spigot.
Asked by: dg112318
If your using an EarthMinded band rain barrel (RainStation or DIY Rain Barrel Kit) the the fittings are designed for external access only. use your thumb or a pair of pliers to hold the triangular black rubber seal from spinning and unthread the broken spigot counter clockwise, then pull out the rubber seal (or push it into the barrel is easier) insert a new seal and reverse the process to install the new spigot. Note normally we don't include seals with the Brass spigot because the DIY and RainStation use different hole size, however if you add "Include RainStation Seal" or "Include DIY seal" to the second line of your ship to address, we will do our best to comply.

Is this compatible with a steel 55 gallon drum?(Do brass & steel corrode in contact under water?) Is the wall of a 55 gallon steel drum too thin for this kit? I assume you drill a hole in the steel drum and insert the threaded part of upstream part of spigot into the hole in drum. Then you take the other part and screw it on. Correct me if this is wrong.
Asked by: chuck
This kit includes the Spigot, so unless the drum has a 3/4" female pipe thread outlet, it cant be used. Regards, The EarthMinded Team

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to install and it works very well. Nice upgrade from the plastic one the rain barrel came with Easy to install and it works very well. Nice upgrade from the plastic one the rain barrel came with

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Shouldn't have bought. There were no inside fasteners. Purchasing additional brass fitting for the inside increased the purchase by $15.00 as they don't stock 3/4" brass nuts. Could have bought a rain barrel complete with tapped overflow for $50.00. They should tell you online they don't offer 3/4" brass nuts.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Doen't fit Fiskars This spigot doesn't fit the Fiskars Holden rain barrel with molded-in threads; the Fiskars threads are 3/4 hose thread and this spigot has 3/4 pipe thread. I bought an MHT to FPT adapter to make it fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Spigot and Drain made for rain barrels! After reading other product reviews, I knew I needed to upgrade my rain barrel spigot but I was leery of which one to get. Look no further than this model. This upgrade kit works perfectly. Other models crack, leak, or are made of flimsy plastic pieces. This model is heavy duty and even easier to install than the original pieces due to its quality. Check out my picture if you want to see it in action.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Is as advertised Worked well and looks good. Nice heavy duty item that won't break or become fragile like the plastic ones. I used it on my rain barrel

Rated 2 out of 5 by from missing parts Liked the product as it was brass not plastic but did not come with pieces to secure to rain barrel.
