Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LUV this rain barrel I love the look of this rain barrel on my back porch. I just set it for rainfall coming off the corner, we don't have downspouts, and it worked just fine. It filled up fast, too. Looks so much better than buckets sitting around, catching rainwater. My plants like the rainwater, and getting ready for another hot, dry summer, truly every little bit counts. Plus, I get exercise walking back and forth watering my plants. I would much rather be outside, than in the gym:) June 17, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Spigot to high The spigot is to high to get all the water out. Mosquitoes can get in through screen on top. On the plus side looks great and is durable. Filled quickly with one half inch rain storm April 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice looking rain barrel! We already had two rain barrels made from food-grade containers, but wanted 'prettier' looking rain barrels this time around since they're going to be more exposed to the back yard. There is a plug in the very bottom of one of the 'legs' which will allow us to completely drain the barrels at the end of the season for storage, plus an overflow drain at the top. We like this one so much we ordered another and now have a total of four! It really helps our raised bed garden to have a plentiful supply of water available. Having come from Florida where water restrictions were the norm, we were already conserving water from every source we could. August 12, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Suitable for areas where it would be visible Interesting looking, not an eyesore. Works in front of house where it could be visible from the street. Dark brown color blends in with mulch & foliage; doesn't look like the plastic it is, from a distance. Doesn't scream "rain barrel!". Brass spigot easy to screw into place, and high enough that risers under the barrel's feet aren't necessary. Only issue: was missing a cap for the drain plug. Contacted the manufacturer, faxed my sales receipt, and received the missing cap in a timely manner (purchased online, so this was not a Home Depot issue; couldn't go through the store to get this). Water authority rain barrel rebate makes the cost of this barrel minimal. August 22, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by So far so good! This is our first rain barrel and so far it is doing a good job! The color matches our house and it is large enough to collect water over several hard rains. I have to tip it on its side to fill up a watering can, but it is light enough to tip fairly easy. I did notice more mosquitoes around and make a conscious effort to keep the mesh top in the closed position. We've already saved on water usage! October 21, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by problem with spigot The spigot on the barrel is set too far in, the finger turn hits the barrel each time you turn it and the entire spigot flexes in and out. I called the company to ask if over time is this going to harm and break the spigot seal, no one called me back. A week later I sent the company an email, no response. May 28, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Well made and looks good--flowers are happy! The rain barrel sits near the front door, so I wanted one with a little style. It perfectly blends in with my Mexican flower pots. The barrel's wide opening catches a lot of the roof runoff easily. The knock-out plug is easy to get to so I can drain the barrel if I need to move it. Two things missing that would improve the functionality: a tap that swivels left and right to make filling watering cans easier and a place on the back to wind up and store a hose. September 7, 2011
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Poor purchase Filled up and overflowed in less than one hour medium rain August 26, 2014
