Product Overview

The Emsco Group RESCUE 40 Gal. Waterstone Rain Barrel provides a way to safely gather rainwater while offering a natural stone appearance to complement most home and garden decor. The downspout diverter will automatically keep your rain barrel full when rain has fallen and bypass the rain barrel when full preventing overfilling and overflowing which can cause flooding. This rain barrel kit collects rainwater to be both environmentally-friendly and money-saving by helping reduce your dependence on municipal or well water. In addition, your plants will thrive using pure, soft rain water instead of the processed water from your tap which can contain elements harmful to your plants. The realistic Waterstone design allows you add beauty or hide unsightly objects such as pumps, pipes or sprinkler valves.

Customer Questions & Answers

When winter comes, how do you prepare the rain barrel?

Asked by: TC
We remove the hose from the barrel, remove the lid, and when it's good and dry we store it in the crawl space upside down (without the lid on). I'm not sure that's necessary, but that's what we do. The hose we leave attached to the downspout

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well. Easy to assemble. No leaks. 10 minutes to set up. Overflow into existing downspout is a nice feature

Rated 1 out of 5 by from After putting in all the work to install it, had to return it because the outlet leaked. Very good looking rain barrel. I was very dissapointed and frustrated when after following the instructions, I built a level platform lined with pavers to support the weight. Once I had it all set up (which involved moving plants and bushes to accomodate the rain barrel) I proceeded to fill it with the hose to test it (as recommended) to my dismay, it leaked from the outlet where the hose is attached. The leak came from around the black ring. Thinking it was merely loose, I tried to thighten it, but the whole thing just spun around. If this happens when it is brand new, it obviously is not made to last!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This rain barrel looks as authentic as you could get. I would recommend the 40-gallon rain barrel. I look at other reviews for the 80-gallon which I really wanted. If this one works well, I will get another 40 and connect them. The hose should be a dark color, not white.The 40-gallon looks as good as you would ever to expect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from When adding the RainReserve Diverter to this product, this is an EXCELLENT product. This product as well as the WaterUrns come with a simple diverter system which builds up with leaves and debris inside of it. The downspout must be taken apart several times a year to clean it out. I cut the hole larger to fit the RainReserve Diverter to it and it becomes a simple NO MAINTENANCE rain barrel, decorative and beautiful. I am also able to disconnect it in the winter time, empty the water out and leave it outside all winter without it cracking. These rocks and urns are the ONLY items I have found that are a CLOSED system, meaning NO overflow, NO mosquitos, NO danger to small animals or children. I have attached a video of what happens when you purchase an "OPEN" system.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Looking Rain Barrel I wanted a rain barrel, but didn't like the look of most of them. This rock looks great with the natural fieldstone landscaping borders and will work well with a Japanese garden design. My neighbors asked where I bought it because they have never seen on that looks like this. I wish I would have bought a larger one. I am considering purchasing another rock for another corner of my house.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great design, poor accessories We had limited space and also did not want to see big round barrels in our yard. These are great visually and blend in the with the landscape. The negatives which we found out about a few by reading past reviews:1) access point on top of rock is pre-drilled, and of course, was not on the side we needed to go to from gutter downspout in both our locations. 2)Plastic pieces were poor and we replaced with Fiskar's diverter along with a copper faucet with an on/off that you can access saved water from. 3)Everything needs to be silicone sealed or you will just lose the valuable water you are trying to save.
