Customer Reviews

RainStation 45 Gal. Granite Rain Barrel with Diverter is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 30.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, as always After much searching for the rain harvesting system, we decided to try the EarthMindedRainStation and I couldn't be happier with it, with maybe one exception. The product is well made, sturdy, comes complete with all tools for set-up (which is great). I just wish they had included a stronger spout, since the plastic one included, once opened, drips and you have to be cautious about not over tightening as I think it may break. That we will replace; but overall I will purchase more of these to conserve water.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good deal. Plastic faucet. Planter not what I expected. Overall great deal for the price. Faucet piece is made of plastic and feels like it might not hold up for many seasons. Top "planter" is simply the cover flipped over, I thought it would be more than that. Very easy to install. Sturdy plastic barrel. Will be great to water the gardens with this summer!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to install The rain barrel works great. The only problem we have is the spout constantley drips. We had to put a watering can under it to catch the water. We turned it off as much as we could, but we were afraid we might break it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent design and performance! I shopped around and looked at a lot of rain barrels before deciding to try this one. The look is great, the engineering of the diverter is outstanding, it works great. It is very easy to install and including the holesaw (s) makes it really convenient. You will not be disappointed. It takes a really good product to motivate me enough to comment, and this is a good product! Buy with confidence.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Happy I am very happy with this rain barrel. My husband installed it for me -- not sure I could have done it on my own. You do need to cut into your gutter and make sure the height is correct. I did upgrade to the brass spigot as other buyers suggested. Can't imagine the plastic one would have held up for long. I'm hoping the brass one will, although it is just a press fit on the plastic so who knows. This is really just a big trash barrel with a cover so if you are handy, you could buy the kit offered and make your own. I liked the granite color as it faded into our house color and didn't scream "rain barrel"! It makes me feel good using recycled water.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I needed Easy instal. Cap on front opening leaks a little. I'm going to try Teflon tape and hope it solves the issue. Otherwise very happy with my purchase!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from just a garbage can Plastic plastic plastic. Faucet presents like a brass fixture but works like cheap plastic. Hard to turn. Does not feel like there is a washer and the fixture itself moves in the hole. A simple ball joint valve should only cost 1.50 and this one must be on the order of two bits. Eventually, the hole will leak, as does the faucet from day one. We have two barrels and both leak. The lid is mishaped, just like a mediocre garbage can lid. Nothing substantial about this product. For a smaller size at the price of a larger size, not much value. We await to see if the faucet is replaced by the company with an upgrade. If they did this one thing, they would have a worthy product....except it also remains to be seen if the plastic threaded outlet at the bottom works. I suspect that the threads will fail over time. Drip, drip, prepared. Good design, low quatliy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product for the money We purchased 2 rainbarrels and connected them, very easy to install. They both fill after a 20 minute rainfall. Due to lack of pressure, it takes a long time to fill a bucket/watering can from the spigot, so I find it just easier to fill by removing the lid and filling the bucket from the top. The spigot however is not metal (as it looks in the picture) it is plastic. I will definitely replace it because after only a few times of using it, it is dripping. After 3 months of having these barrels, they are still working great, now I just need some rain!!! A good value for the money.
