Customer Questions & Answers

Is it a brass or plastic spigot? Does it come in a different color besides black? Thank you. BL

RainStation 50 gal. Rain Barrel with Diverter System in Recycled Black
Asked by: Beck
It is plastic. I have not had problems so far with it. There is brass available to buy though. I think the barrel does come in other colors but they're more expensive than black.

filter debris? Mosquitos?

Is this product open to debris or is there a filter somewhere in the system? Also, can mosquitos get into the barrel?
Asked by: aworldtosee
Our Flexifit diverter filters most larger debris such as leaves and twigs which will settle above the diverter in the downspout. We highly recommend you remove the diverter regularly (every 1-3 months depending on proximity of trees) to let any debris pass through the downspout as it could cause backups if not maintained. Fine debris like roof shingle particles will pass into the barrel and can be rinsed out at the end of the season. The best way to avoid mosquitos from breading in the barrel is to make sure the lid is always on, as the connection from the downspout diveter to the barrel is sealed. Regards, the EarthMinded Team

Do I need to elevate it on something?

Asked by: Allison
No, you can use the hose provided but you will always have water in the barrel that won't come out because the hose is higher then the water especially if you are filling watering cans like I do. If you want to use all the water then elevate it on blocks.

Does this barrel have an overflow system?

We get monsoons in the summer with short, but gully-washing rains. What happens when the barrel is full and it's still raining?
Asked by: Georgie
Yes but it sounds like you live near I do in South FL and I had to make the over flow bigger or it back filled up my drain pipe.

RainStation 50 Gal. Rain Barrel with Diverter System in Recycled Black is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 35.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Lid doesn't fit I've owned an Earth Minded 65 gallon rain barrel for several years and love it. Ordered the 50-gal for another downspout since it's the largest size currently available. Got it home, opened the box, and tried to put the lid on the barrel... like trying to put size 6 jeans on a size 10 body. I know from my other barrel how easy the lid should go on and lock - this one barely gets over the rim of the barrel, I'll never be able to securely lock it. I suspect a 45-gallon lid was shipped with a 50-gallon barrel. Home Depot was not very helpful in helping me get the proper size lid, so now I'm stuck.

The diverter works great. I will eventually buy the metal spigot but for now the plastic is working just fine. I've had no leaks. And overall, the barrel looks nice. I only wish more people suggested putting the spigot on the bottom hole. Once the water falls below the spigot level, I've had to use the drain hole to get water which isn't always ideal.

The rain barrel now sits atop a couple of concrete blocks so as to provide for a downhill water flow. Wisely attached a brass valve for the base drain hose. Upfront total cost? ~ $140.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to put together This barrel was incredibly easy to put together and install. Good instructions, all the parts are easy to locate, and easy to assemble. We love the look of the planter in top of the rain barrel as well. Great addition to our home.
