Product Overview

The Emsco Group RESCUE 50 Gal. Flat Back Whiskey Rain Barrel features an integrated planter and an easy-to-install, patented downspout diverter kit which fits 2 in. x 3 in. standard or 3 in. x 4 in. high capacity downspouts. 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. An added feature about the diverter system is that it does not have to be removed during the winter season. The diverter and rain barrel can be by-passed so that water flows through the downspout as usual, keeping water from getting into the rain barrel and freezing. The integrated planter can be planted directly into or a pre-arranged floral basket can be used to adorn the top of the rain barrel. The planter area includes a weep hole, allowing excess water to drain out preventing plant stress or death due to over-watering and root rot.

  • Environmentally-friendly decorative water urn collects rain from your downspout to reduce your need for municipal or well water, helping you save money
  • Made from UV-stable, engineered resin for durability with the look of a brown whiskey barrel with black accent bands
  • Built-in large planter has weep holes to help prevent over watering and root rot
  • Kit includes our patented dual downspout diverter, a 36 in. connection hose, connection grommets, a barb plug, a 48 in. main outlet hose with on/off ball cock valve, 2 hose gaskets and an illustrated installation guide
  • Diverter system automatically redirects water down the downspout when the urn is full
  • Easy-to-install downspout diverter kit fits 2 in. x 3 in. standard or 3 in. x 4 in. high capacity downspouts
  • Holds up to 50 Gal. of rainwater
  • Can be connected to a soaker hose for convenient automatic watering of nearby plants/gardens
  • Rainwater is ideal for watering plants and gardens, rainwater is at ambient temperatures which plant enjoy and it contains no chlorine or other chemicals

Hose Install in Back?

Can the hole for the connecting tube be made in the rear? I want to install this perpendicular to a downspout and am wondering if that is possible. This would also mask the tube and allow the barrel to disguise its flat back better based on the placement of my downspout.

Answer: 
You can put the hole anywhere you want on the barrel but keep in mind that the diverter can only be installed onto your downspout one way, which puts the tube to the right or left of the downspout. See pic. This means you'll have to snake the tube around to the front of the down spout

Answer: 
You're probably getting settlement from your gutters. I'd recommend that you put some type of screen on the gutter hole feeding the downspout that the barrel is attached to. I believe That Home Depot sells a ball type screen that can fit in the gutter hole.

How do I get water out of it. It is over half full, level, and even with the hose off, it dribbles very slowly.

It acts like a vacuum has formed. Is there some vent near the top I can't find in the manual?

Answer: 
Your diverter might be clogged. The only other hole up top is the drain from the planter which wouldn't have an effect if the diverter was open. Try removing the diverter tube from the barrel and if it begins to flow then you have a clog in the hose or the diverter itself.

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 105 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Free water and it looks great! We thought about getting a rain diverter for years and finally came across this whiskey barrel with planter and included diverter system which was exactly what we wanted. The barrel is large and has a flat back, planter area on top with built in drain (to the outside of the barrel). The diverter system is very straightforward, just cut your downspout and insert the diverter and screw it in with the supplied screws.. Drill a hole on the side or rear of the barrel and insert the supplied supply hose. Make sure to install the diverter relatively level to the inlet hole you drill on the barrel. Too much of a down angle will not perform well. The product even comes with a very short outlet hose complete with a mini on/off valve. Since its a standard size hose you can extend it with a long hose as needed but remember that this system is gravity fed so don't expect to use an extremely long hose effectively. Product was a little pricey but well worth it in the end. April 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by magical rain garrel These rain barrels are amazing!they are strong,look real and are easy to install and link together.My favorite part is the planter on the top.I an growing herbs,onions,basil, and peas!Watching them fill up when it rains is exciting especially in drought stricken southern California.They are a wonreful addition to any garden March 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Now...if it would only rain! Easy to install and looks great. Even if we never get rain, it makes an attractive planter for my begonias. July 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great price Bought these barrels because they came complete with the hose, valve, and diverter. Most barrels were the same price but barrel only and then wanted another $40 to $50 for the diverter and hose kit. Very sturdy looking and easy to install. I would recommend these barrels. My wife loves them. No more softened water for our flowers and plants. I bought 2 more of these this year and just installed them. Now we need more rain June 29, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A great Solution It's very simple to install and use. Hack sawing your gutter sounds scary, but that part is easy and takes 10 minutes. I installed mine on a platform of rocks to give it extra height. Higher is better, because gravity creates the water pressure. July 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love My New Rain Barrel! I didn't like any of the rain barrels at my local store so I ordered this online. It took about a week for it to arrive because it came from the East Coast. The rain barrel looked even better than it did online and I love the planter on the top. The rain barrel looks very well made. I like the way the spigot, hose and connectors were packaged separately in a plastic bag so they wouldn't get lost during shipping. The instructions are simple to follow so installation is easy. Can't wait for it to rain so I can see it working! May 31, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works well The rain barrel works well and looks great in our front yard! May 31, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice addition to the patio This barrel looks nice on our patio, not to mention very functional with regards to collecting rain water to water our patio plants. It is very light (when empty), easy to install, and works well so far. A little smaller then we pictured, but it is a nice addition. May 31, 2016
