Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rain Barrel & Rain Diverter Spout Kit The reason we purchased our Rain Barrel was because we were put on a Water Meter in our neighborhood, and we did not want to have get rid of our gardens after all the hard work we had put into them. So by getting the Rain Barrel we could save the rain water and be able to keep our cherished gardens that we have put many long hard hours into! The first night that our barrel was hooked up it rained so hard that it filled up the barrel completely plus five, yes five gallon buckets of water now we are trying to figure out if we can get one more barrel so we can put one in our front yard! We decorated our barrel so it looked nice and was not an eye sore it beautiful! March 5, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great rain barrel it's built solid and working great. One thing I would say is not to overtighten the spigot and drain, which is pointed out in the instruction. The first time I built it, I tightened it too much so that the part of the threaded seal was pushed into the hole, which caused leaks. Also clean your gutter before collecting rain water.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Just follow the instructions After reviewing the reviews, I purchased this rain barrel and followed the instructions. It arrived right to my home shortly after placing the order online. Everything was included-but I did need to have a drill. My husband and I set up the rain barrel with no problem. It was a good idea to raise it up so that we could use the faucet on the bottom. Started using the rain water last week for flowers, the pond, outside washing. Good to conserve water and look forward to planting flowers on top of the barrel next year. August 6, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to install and good quality I just installed the rain barrel and after one day of rain it is almost full. The only complication was that I discovered I have round downspouts. However, I was able to easily order a replacement part from the company to make it work with a round downspout. All the materials needed for installation are included and the instructions are easy to follow. Overall, a good deal for the price! April 30, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by does it all I bought this about a month ago. Installation was easy and I used 4 cinder blocks arranged in a square for the base. The hardest part was leveling the cinder blocks. (I recommend some sort of raised base because gravity empties the barrel) I have since installed a short 6 foot hose to the bottom spout with a metal hose valve shutoff. The top spigot leaks a little and it is plastic, but I used the included end cap on the spigot and it solved the leak. The included diverter works exactly like it is supposed to. I have emptied the barrel twice since purchasing and no problems and I am planning on buying another barrel. One picture shows the barrel immediately after installation and the other is after I planted flowers in the lid with the included pieces. May 17, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product, easy install I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to install. The hardest part was creating a level surface for it to sit on. It not only provides a source of free water for the landscape and washing the car, but also has helped divert rain water from an area of my yard with drainage issues. If I had to point out an improvement I'd say I wish the spout was a nice metal one rather than plastic, but it has worked great, so no real complaint there. I'm considering getting another for the other side of the house. August 26, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love Love Love this rainstation! My dad bought me this from Home Depot and it is a great product! Fills up with a good day of rain. It is so nice to water plants with Gods water instead of the chemical tap water. It was easy to connect and easy to use. I purchased the brass spigot from other reviews and it works great with no leaks. April 8, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fantastic Rain Barrel!! Love it! Easy installation! Perfect size for my house and yard. Already full and being used to wash the front porch, watering plants, etc. Was worried at first about overflow, but the diverter works as advertised. It does not let the water back up the down spout but bypass the barrel if full and continue down and out the bottom of the down spout! I love it and have already recommended it to others.
