Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MikeyC 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.

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 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jane 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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by scott great rain barrell - love it!
Great rain barrell. Very easy to install and comes with the drill bit to attach to your power drill. I love that this has a built in gutter diverter that sends the water back down the gutter when the barrell is full. There are even 2 spouts so you can connect your hose and still have a spout for a bucket or watering can. Solid product and easy to install. It even has a winterizer cap for the winter when you disconnect the barrell.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Joanna 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 3.0 out of 5.0 by KenR rain barrel
Easy to install. Make sure that you install in the correct order. Need to reach to the bottom the install the drain and faucet. Need another person to make this happen. The faucet does not fit well enough in the opening to keep from leaking. Went to hardware store and purchased a rubber washer to put on the outside. Leak stopped. May want to add the part to your product. Works well and the barrel does not overflow if installed as per the instruction. Overflow continues on down the downspout and out into the yard.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GroverPi Great Product!
The barrel is great and easy to install. Everything you will need comes with the kit (except the drill, of course!). The one issue I have with the barrel is the top. It is hard to get the top completely on the barrel the first time. After that, it is not too difficult.
I hope you enjoy this as much as we do! We purchased two, and will probably get two more.
