Product Overview

The Emsco Group RESCUE 50 Gal. Grey Flat Back Whiskey Rain Barrel features an integrated planter and an easy-to-install, patented downspout diverter kit. The diverter kit fits 2 in. x 3 in. standard or 3 in. x 4 in. high capacity downspouts. The downspout diverter will route water to the rain barrel when raining and bypass the rain barrel when full. This rain barrel kit collects rainwater to be both environmentally-friendly and cost effective by reducing your dependence on municipal or well water. The diverter system does not have to be removed during the winter season and 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 into directly or a pre-arranged floral basket can be used to adorn the top of the rain barrel.

  • Environmentally-friendly decorative rain barrel 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 grey whiskey barrel with black accent bands

  • Diverter system automatically redirects water down the downspout when the barrel is full
  • Easy-to-install downspout diverter kit fits 2 in. x 3 in. standard or 3 in. x 4 in. high capacity downspouts

Answer: 
Since the water flow from the hose is gravity fed, the higher off the ground it is the better flow you'll get. Mine is on the ground, but I have the hose running downhill to the garden.

Answer: 
To allow for a consistent flow when using the hose, I would recommend elevating the barrel 8 inches or more from ground level. I've done this and the water flows easily from the hose when required.

Answer: 
The overflow is in the diverter. Once the barrel is full the water should divert back down the downspout

Answer: 
No there is no overflow valve because the diverter will stop flowing water into the barrel once it is full. The water in the downspout will just continue down instead of flowing into the tube that goes to the barrel.
The top of the barrel does have a drain hole so that your plants do not drown.

Hose Install in Back?

This question is from 50 Gal. Brown Flat Back Whiskey Rain Barrel with Integrated Planter and Diverter System with Black Accent Bands
Asked by

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

Customer Reviews

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 116 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by What I expected Received the product and it was as advertised (shocker I know). Like the look and like the planter box that makes up the top of the barrel for dual usage. Being in socal I am still waiting for the rain to see if it works as advertised. I haven't yet made it to the top of the house with a house to test it myself. So far so good though. Added the base for better water flow out of the barrel based on other reviews August 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Like it Was easy to install. (I laid some stone for a base and to raise it about 8" so I could drain the barrel easily). It looks very nice and is easy to use May 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love the rain barrel The installation was super easy. Love the flat side it fits in a tight spot. It's a bonus to be able to grow peppermint on top of the barrel. May 20, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Add A Pro the water barrel was easy to install attractive and helpful during the drought. August 8, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Mistake Diverter restricts water flow so much that any significant rain just backs up- barrel is so flimsy it bends and rocks in strong winds even when full and causes fill pipe to detach- don't waste your time on this system July 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love it! I love my rain barrel. Got it on sale with free shipping. It arrived quickly and I easily installed it by myself. It works great and I use the water collected to water my garden. I'm so happy with it I want to buy another one. July 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Liked first one so much I bought a second one. I got my first barrel and installed it in about 20 minutes. The bulk of the time was spent rounding up the tools! Really easy to install. I did see some complaints in other reviews about the back of the barrel bulging and the diverter not working correctly. I've experienced neither problem. I do think it's critical to ensure you follow the installation directions. It really needs to be on a flat, level stand or driveway etc. Also, the diverter needs to be installed at the correct height, to high or low and it won't work properly. I liked my first one so much I ordered a second one about a week later. May 13, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Whiskey Barrel Product works great. The only concern is during heavy heavy period of rain. When the barrel is full, the overflow connector on the down spout can not handle large amounts of water flow. This results in overflow from the connector. Water will gush out. Again, the product should be placed on a down spout that doesn't move large amounts of water. June 14, 2016
