Customer Questions & Answers

Is there an opening to clean out the container?

Is there an opening to clean out the container?
Asked by: Buppa
No, there are no openings on this rain barrel at all. You even have to drill the hole for the diverter kit yourself.

Is this container suitable to drinking water?

I want to hook this rain collector up to my rain gutters. However, I am concerned about the material used in manufacturing this "barrel", and would it be safe to store drinking water.
Asked by: TJ
no. it is vented to atmosphere, therefore not potable.

leaking at the spigot at bottom

no wonder it won't fill up- it is leaking like crazy from the poor connection at the bottom where you attach the hose, making the entire system well, pointless! What should I do, it took weeks to get this set up! think I will change my 3 stars, to 1!

46 Gal. WaterBoy Brown Wicker Rain Collector with Diverter System is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to assemble. Looks great in the yard!... Easy to assemble. Looks great in the yard!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT product for a small area or just to use as an End Table on your deck or porch! Really the best solution for small areas. We have it on our patio but since the diverter included continued to overflow, clog, eventually froze and broke, we replaced it with the Basic RainReserve Diverter Kit. Now we have no overflowing water issues, no leaves or debris to clean out of the downspout and diverter! Really LOVE that these Rescue products are MADE IN PENNSYLVANIA out of 100 percent Food-Grade Plastic and 25% of that is RECYCLED!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from leaking at seam after 10 months from purchase I'd like to get my money back, but HD policy does not cover past 90 days. This piece of garbage is now leaking at the weld seam mid line. Don't buy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wrong instructions make installation more difficult I just received this rain collector today and installed it right before a storm. The installation instructions for this model were for the larger 60 gallon urn model which is 43 inches tall compared with this model which is 23 inches tall. A hole must be drilled into the barrel for the diverter hose. Since the instructions measure the drill point from the top of the larger model, care should be taken to correctly line up the diverter unit hole with his model before drilling the hole. Also, the instructions say to cut one inch out of the pre-existing downs spout. I had enough space between the ground and the bottom of the down spout so I was able to fit the diverter without the second cut.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, basic rain barrel! I was looking for something that wouldn't look too garish or an obvious imitation of something it wasn't. This unit came with a great price, with a simple design and a nice, compact size (squat enough to actually fit underneath my raised home), yet with a good capacity. I installed two in series. My only (minor) gripes: the downspout adapter is white and rectangular...I have dark bronze, round downspouts, so I had to buy another adapter. But I knew that going in. And the spigots are pretty low-flowing. I suspect I'll replace them with a higher-flow valve. All-in-all, I'm quite pleased!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from rain barrel It wasn't what I expected. There was no opening in the top for the water to enter. To much required to set it up.
