The 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
  • 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
  • The 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
  • Holds up to 50 gal. of rainwater

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Curb Appeal, Collects water. Mount it up off ground Product was shipped in timely manner, well packaged and well constructed. I know it’s not rocket surgery but, follow the directions, as you want to make sure you measure and mount the down spout converter correctly, in right direction of water flow. Also, I highly recommend mounting this on top of landscaping bricks, or something else to get it off the ground to aid with water flowing from hose. Maybe this is a known requirement with rain barrels, this is my first so, didn’t think about it until after installation, too late now, down spout is already cut, don’t make the same mistake. The planter up top is a hit with the wife but, I think you miss out on a lot of water. If you place a rain barrel in front of the house, this might be more curb appealing. In the back yard, I’ll try the simple top feed barrels to collect more water. May 14, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great looking rain barrel This is a great looking rain barrel that conveniently captures downspout drain water and redirects for use in the garden or yard. The install required a few tools and some cutting, but was fairly simple. Once hooked up, it did a great job at redirecting water from one of our downspouts. June 19, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Looking Design - Poor Engineering We just bought two of these rain barrels. The look is great; the flat back makes it fit tight to the wall. The brass spigot looks to be sturdy and trouble-free. However, both spigots were difficult to thread into the plastic opening. I placed the barrels on the ground and sat on each barrel as I threaded in the spigot. Neather would thread in straight, resulting in stripped plastic threads and an oddly angled spigot. I hope the connection is water tight (it hasn't rained yet). Annother problem, I hope it's minor, is finding a 7/8 inch interior diameter hose to connect the barrels. June 17, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works like it should Nice looking plastic barrel. Easy installation. Make sure you buy the base and verify it fits when installing January 20, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by It's the best looking rain barrel out there. Works great, needed to use some food safe/keg lube to properly install the hose, but a tight fit ensures waterproof connection. Only issue is in a VERY heavy downpour, the inlet connection can overflow if the barrel is full. However, over 50% of our roofs rainwater goes to this downspout. May 16, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Just what I WANTED This product was exactly what I was looking for and it works just the way it is supposed to. I am so excited to be able to recycle the rainwater for my landscape and see if the flowers grow better. The flower container on the top makes it even more attractive. May 1, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by It is exactly what I wanted and expected, works and looks great! The rain barrel was easy to assemble, looks and functions exactly as described, and best of all was delivered right to my door! May 22, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Exceeds Expectations Attractive rain barrel, easy to install, and does what it's suppose to do. No mosquito worries because the water drains directly into the closed barrel, unlike the barrels with screens on top. Great value and saves lots of money on outside watering. September 8, 2013
