Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 13 reviewers.
Rated 2 out of 5 by fair product priced high compared to quality. like the size, but leaks. Using it for reclaimed non potable water. June 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by So far, so good! Works as advertised. This is our first rain barrel. Works great. No leaks around the plug or spigot. Appreciate that it has a screen. Keeps fir needles out. Filled up really fast. Now I see why you would need several all hooked together. I am using it to wash mud from hands and vegetables so less down the drain. May 21, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by great prompt service. Standard water barel. All the parts were there. Planning on purchasing more from them. March 25, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Chemical Smell Unbearable Good strong plastic, that's it. Leaks, the spicket lets the water out a drip at a time, & there are blue crystals that come inside the bucket that smell of extreme peppermint. I have rinsed it many times & have it sitting in the sun for weeks now. Smell will never go away. Food grade? I don't think so. Maybe in a few months it will be usable. The description of this item doesn't mention this awful chemical. July 22, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Mediocre Barrel What one might expect for a rain barrel, with one flaw: a leaky second plug. The nozzle that came with it formed a tight seal, however the red plug for the unused hole leaked. While this problem may be easily fixable with some Teflon tape or something of the sort, it should not be necessary. September 4, 2013
