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

Customer Questions & Answers

Does it come with the divertor, or to you need to order this separately?

Asked by: Daisy
Yes, it comes with a diverter. There are many other diverters on the market, so I figured that if this one doesn't suit me, I'll go buy another. So far, this one seems to be doing the job, although I had my doubts at first.

Is it in one piece or is there a lid you can remove for cleaning?

Is the barrel round? It appears flattened in the back in the photo.

Asked by: SSterne
Flat back so it sits against the house.

50 Gal. Brown Flat Back Whiskey Rain Barrel with Integrated Planter and Diverter System with Black Accent Bands is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 168.

It comes complete with everything you need for the installation and usage. Installation was quite simple and took about 30 minutes. Read the instructions carefully and you will have no problems. Unfortunately it has not rained a lot since it was installed so I cannot comment on the efficiency of the gathering/diverter that installs into a down-spout. However, I did test it with simply spraying the roof with a garden hose and yes indeed it worked. Overall we are very pleased and would highly recommend!!! PS: Please note in the picture that I added a 90 degree brass elbow to the water outlet so we could move the storage of the hose to the side of the unit.

Video on HD site with this product was super helpful. The site suggested a barrel stand which we ordered at $33 but did not fit the barrel. And really wasn't needed.

It's really nice that the diverters are included, but it's tricky to get them to work well. It took a few tries to get them working well so that water went into the barrel. 2. The hose, diverter, and threads are all plastic. Brass fittings would have made this a 5 star item. I have 3 of these in service.. Two are over a year old, and just installed a third one. One tip I have is that you should really pay attention to how you mount these. The higher up the better. Gravity is a big help. I join mine together with PVC pipe rather than the included hose. I use a pump to send water uphill to an underground buried 50 gallon food grade barrel as a cistern to water plants.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice barrel I love the look of this rain barrel. One of the things that I don't like is that there is no way to manually fill it.

One of the things that I don't like is that there is no way to manually fill it. If we go out of town, I want to know that it is filled in case it doesn't rain when we are gone. We are working on A solution for that. Also, you have to drill your own hole. That wasn't a big deal but I didn't know about it until it arrived. All in all, it is really nice, very nice looking and seems to be of good quality

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I wanted You're going to need to cut apart a perfectly good downspout in order to install this. Two cuts to be precise. But once it's in, you're all set. We had one good rain a week and a half ago, and barrel was filled. I'm still watering my plants with the collected water. I have a modest assortment of plants in containers: two varieties of tomatoes, basil, oregano, chives, strawberries, and a handful of ornamentals. Got a colorful "ice plant" for the planter on top of the barrel. A full barrel could last me throughout a completely dry month. Only regret is not getting it sooner.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Looks great but multiple leaks and you need 3/4" bit I love the way these look. We bought three and unfortunately 2 of 2 we've set up so far leak. The first one leaks at the bottom where the plastic threads connect to the hose. Not sure if some plumber tape will fix that. The bigger problem is the second one we've set up leaks at the bottom of the barrel AND a hole we can't see about 3/4 of the way up on the front. I'm sure the return will go fine but not looking forward to having to return it and reinstall another one. They're not tons of work to set up but you do need a 3/4" bit to drill the hole for the hose coming off the downspout. Wish that was included. Hoping when we get around to installing the 3rd one it doesn't have all the leaks it's predecessors have had!

I thought it would divert and receive ALL the rain from the downspout though. This rain barrel system only gets half the water going down the gutter, and I was looking for it to take 100% of the water (as a diverted for gutter-water away from the foundation of the house). I'd recommend it to those looking for a decor item in their landscaping with limited water collection capabilities.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Love it but... I love this rain barrel and would give it 5 stars but after the first fill up, I noticed it had a pin-hole sized hole along one of the "bands." It appeared to be a defect in the construction of the barrel and was easily remedied with some gutter sealer but was not something I should have had to do after paying over $100 for the barrel and since it was already set up and full I chose to not return it.
