Home water conservation has never looked this good. The EarthMinded RainStation is a complete rainwater harvesting system that includes our patented FlexiFit diverter for easy installation and trouble free use. RainStation barrels feature a reversible “Planter Top” lid that can be used to grow annuals or herbs on top of the barrel making it both functional and decorative. Our patented FlexiFit diverter helps prevent overflows and flooding that plague conventional top-fill rain barrels and can damage a home’s foundation. The RainStation can be assembled and installed in minutes. Locate near any downspout around the home, garage or out-building to catch and store rainwater for outdoor watering and washing chores. The RainStation is a convenient way to save both water and money.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to Install and use My son was working on his Boy Scout Eagle Project, providing a new community vegetable garden and shed. He had some money left over, and his clients had a wish list item of rain barrels to collect roof water to use to water the new garden. He used the extra money to purchase 2 rain barrels. It was easy to follow the directions and install them, thanks to the provision of the required drills for cutting the drain pipe. They filled quickly and easily after the first rainfall. The client intends to purchase more units, and install drip lines on timers to maximize the use of the rain barrels. July 21, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome use for pond filter! I origionally bought 2 of for front and one for back. I decided to use one for my filter in a large pond in the back yard. It has the holes already for inspout and drain. I drilled an outspout at 1 inch below top and ran 2 inch PVC to a waterfall. it works great and is not ugly like the previous "55 gal trash can" we have used for past 5 years! AND.....I can still turn lid upside down and plant flowers which just adds to the absence of UGLY with this use of the rain barrell. Using the other one as a rain barrell as siggested.......

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Attractive and good quality for the price This Rain Barrel was very easy to set up, enjoyed being able to dress it up with flowers. I did take the advice of previous raters and purchased the Brass Spigot and Drain Upgrade Kit. I'm very happy with the product and would recommend it. May 29, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works perfectly I bought two of these rain barrels, along with two shut-off hose connections. (I'm not sure how the rain barrel could work without buying the shut-off valve!) They were easy to assemble (if you have a drill) and worked very well. Since my downspouts are 3x4 rather than 2x3, the diverter occupies only half the cross-section of the downspout, but even then a light rain fills up the barrel. I did put the diverter on the side of the downspout that has the most water. I attached the shut-off valve to the outlet on the botton, and attached a soaker hose to that. Then when the weather is dry, I open the valve and water the plants. BTW, the directions say to center the hole in the downspout 3 inches below the top of the barrel, but I did mine at 2 inches, and even 1 inch would have worked. That fills the barrel higher and faster (since there is a slope). The diverter would need to be centered higher than the barrel before there was a danger of overflow. June 4, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Happy with the results I initially bought two of these rain barrels. Delivery was on-time and product was exactly as stated. Easy to install - though I took extra steps to level the ground, set the barrel on pavers and work the downspout runoff past the barrel. Note: one barrel installed along roughly 70 ft length of gutter filled up in two good rain storms. Decided to buy a third one for the front yard gutter system. August 26, 2014
