The Rescue 50 gal. Terra Cotta Flatback Rain Barrel features 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 terra cotta
  • 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
  • Can be connected to a soaker hose for convenient automatic watering of nearby plants/gardens

Rated 4 out of 5 by 25 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cool rain in a barrel. We have city water tied to our sewer rates so I decided to try out a rain barrel because I have extensive flower beds. Interestingly enough when the snow was still flying it was cheaper but at any rate I bought it and found a great spot next to the gutter. I have since learned there are good gutter diverters and that you have to elevate it up on leveling blocks because of gravity flow. Now I have staged hoses at different points in the garden to tap when needed. I was amazed at how cool the water stays on even the hottest days. It fills us so fast I'm ready to set up another one. What a great way to save on water for my thirsty plants. July 17, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by This rain barrell was very easy to install, works great and looks great against the backdrop of our old, historic house. This product was easy to install and the overflow feature works perfectly. The extra long hose, included, is perfect for watering nearby flower beds, shrubs and trees. April 6, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Attractive rain barrel, but requires some work to set up properly This barrel is attractive and functional, but is a little cumbersome to set up. Not difficult at all, but will require a little work. The planter on top is great and allows this to become a very attractive piece of your landscaping, and it really does looks like terra cotta from afar, which is what we wanted. All in all a great barrel but a few downsides, and a few things that required manual tweaking. The diverter is great and I loved it at first, but I've noticed a few minor issues. First, in heavy rain the small hose cannot empty fast enough into the barrel, and also cannot divert down the spout quick enough either, so it backs up a little bit. Also, in light rain I have the opposite problem, some water drops straight down the downspout through to the bottom without diverting into the barrel. A few custom retrofits solved my problem, but could cause some issues if you don't pay attention to detail. One thing to be aware of is that this barrel cannot be opened up. The only holes are for the hose spout, and the one you will drill for the diverter hose. I had to add screens in my gutter to prevent debris from ending up in the barrel, since no way to clean it out. And I also had to drill a breather hole because the water just slowly glugs in since there is no air escape. With the breather hole, the water now can fill faster, especially in heavy rain when I was losing a lot through the diverter. The last thing is that the flat back of the barrel bubbles out when the barrel is full. Not a lot you can do about it, but it does push away from the wall a bit which is not that attractive. If you are a DIYer this is a good barrel because you can drill holes where ever you want and virtually customize your setup, but if you want a simple to install barrel, you may want to go in another direction.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect for my deck This was excellent for our newly expanded deck. It was easy to install and it wil be perfect for watering my flowers throughout the year. They look very nice and are very functional. We installed 2. September 24, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Stylish Not Functional It seems like an Ok product but it wasn't made to hook up the way I needed it to. No hole in the top for rain water to go into and can't hook up to another barrel. I am returning it. September 24, 2014
