Answer: 
The barrel itself can withstand, BUT it and tha spigots should be fully emptied before freezing weather. Freezing weather will make this plastic brittle under stress. Winter prep is easy. Disconnect from downspout and secure deeded hose up (UP) against your homes downspout. Next, place your barrel upside down on whatever foundation you've provided, and placecavweight (brick, large rock) on it to keep it Read More

Answer: 
The rain barrel can be left out in winter or extreme heat since it is manufactured from a rotationally molded process which involves baking the plastic material. It can withstand extreme temperatures from -40°C to + 40°C and will NOT chip, crack or fade and has UV protection.

Answer: 
Three are two outlets on this barrel. It has a standard spigot about 12" off the ground, plus the hose attachment on the leg. Really a super practical setup, esoecially if you build a block vase that raises the barrel up by, say, one cinder block.

Answer: 
I believe the spigot is about 12" off the ground. You need a fairly short bucket or can to put under it. It's not on the leg, but rather on the rounded side of the barrel.

Answer: 
A drainpipe can direct water directly into the plastic mesh lid or into the overflow spout on the side.
You can also use one of those Rain Barrel Diverter Kits made by Fiskars and others to add more features.

Hello shopper.
The most generally excepted method of filling these barrels is by having a down spout empty into it. If you have another water sources (like a Gutter) I am sure it will except the water as well. Or let it free stand out in the open to gather the rain independently. Look at this similar rain barrel and see how the down spout directs the water into Read More

Answer: 
Yes & no. There's a removable cover, which is a round plastic sheet full of holes. It's supported by plastic crossbars which aren't removable. You couldn't dip a bucket into it, but you could use a smaller scoop with a handle. I don't know why you'd want to,though, because you can use the spigot that's about 12" off the ground, or connect a hose to the drainage outlet at the very bottom.

Answer: 
The top is removable but there is a "Y" shaped piece of plastic under the screen holding it up. A bucket would not fit through the opening.
