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

I was hoping to not use as much ground space & just have a taller setup, as I feel this would improve water pressure & still look nice. Is one barrel strong enough to support another (full) barrel directly on top?

Answer: 
Yes. DO NOT buy the linking kit they try to sell you as an add on. All it is is two rubber gaskets and an additional foot of clear hose. Each barrel comes with a connector kit to your downspout. Simply pop the black rubber gaskets off the gutter connector you won't be using (since in theory you are linking it to another barrel that is already connected to the downspout) and use the clear hose already Read More

Save yourself the $20.
Additionally, the instructions for linking are at the end of the barrel installation instructions. If I were doing it again I would drill my linking holes at 7/8" wide instead of 3/4" like the say. This gaskets are nearly impossible to get on anyway. In fact I gave up and rigged something else. Read Less

Answer: 
Because the rain barrel uses a "closed system" that uses a diverter on your downspout for water to flow into it, it is not likely that many leaves will get into the rain barrel. I have had mine installed for over 3 years now and never had an issue with leaves getting into the rain barrel. The diverter system also makes it hard for insects like mosquitos to get into the rain barrel unlike "open" top Read More

Answer: 
The diverter tubing is only 5/8", so even though leaves may not enter the actual tube, enough in your downspout leading to your diverter would certainly block it up. I'd suggest gutter screens and regular cleanings.

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 48 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by NOT QUITE WHAT I WANTED, BUT FUNCTIONAL This is our second rain barrel, our first was purchased through a fundraiser and has a Rain Reserve diverter system. We paid (a lot) less for this rain barrel. Pros: the flat back, so you can have it much closer to your house, the colored resin will last longer than the painted one we already have, the painted resin looks like wood until you get right next to it, the built-in flower planter, and the attachable hose to water with. Cons:the diverter system, which was much harder to install. The plastic tubing they give you is not at all flexible and kinks easily, it's hard to funnel from the downspout to the rain barrel and I'm not sure that it will collect water as well as the flexible hose that came with my other barrel. We hopefully solved the kinking issue by using a cut garden hose at both the intake and outtake attachments, with their tubing inserted into the hose. This might be a good barrel for first-timers. Not sure how well it will collect rainwater as it has not rained since we installed it. August 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great idea that saves money! Quite easy to install in existing downspout. We attached a drip hose to our garden area and this keeps the soil moist. We installed it on a flat driveway and if you are looking for more water pressure you might want to elevate on blocks. This certainly is beneficial for my plants as it captures rain water with no chemicals and it certainly saves on our water bill. July 26, 2016
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 4.0 out of 5.0 by 50 Gallon Whiskey Rain Barrel Barrel needs to be at least 24 inches above ground for water to flow properly. I would have liked to know this before I cut my gutter lead. August 9, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by much smaller thsn advertised This turned out to be an enclosed tub with no access to the inside for cleaning or draining. completely. It was advertised as a 50 gallon barrel, but was only about half of a barrel with the flat back. It was a nice looking unit, but simply was not suitable for what we needed. August 9, 2016
