Product Overview

The Emsco Group RESCUE 60 Gal. Basket Weave Rain Water Urn 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.

Customer Questions & Answers

Is there a way to open the rain barrel to clean inside it?

It doesn't appear that there is a way to actually access the inside of the rain barrel to clean it. Can anyone provide insight into that?
Asked by: Rainsaver
No, there is no lid, it is a "sealed system". To clean it you would have to remove the tube from the downspout and add some bleach or soap and water into the barrel, roll the barrel around on a blanket on the ground a bit, then add water and rinse well draining it from the spigot hole.

is the integrated planter self-watered by the storage tank, or do you have to water the plants separately?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks great....completely filled after an avg rain shower My husband had no problem setting this thing up next to our deck. I wanted it close to my containers and raised garden so I could water directly from the hose attached to it. I put a mixed arrangement hanging basket in the planter top and took off the plastic hanger from the basket and it looks just like a wicker basket. Couple of days after it was set up, we got a hour rain shower and when I went out later, the urn was full of rain water!!! This looks great next to our brown deck and furniture!! Will probably get another one to set up at the other end of the deck near our other downspout gutter...have not found anything this attractive at any store or garden center....LOVE IT!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Let it Rain, Best Choice The rain barrel is very nice, looks great on our patio. I put it up high on cinder blocks to give it more water pressure, and added a Dual valve at the bottom so I can leave the longer hose connected and have a spigot if needed, or add a second hose. It took me less than an hour to set it up, but I'm a handyman, it'll take you more. I recommend this product, I got it on sale for under $100 and but well worth it if you pay more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Attractive Rain Barrel It is large; however, I was surprised at how quickly it fills up. It requires drilling a hole and modifying the downspout for water to enter. This is the first rain barrel I have ever purchased, and will need to retrofit a pipe to divert overflow water and prevent it from spilling over the siding and foundation. *The only issue with shipping is it arrived with a dent in the side. Since it is plastic I placed it in the sun and after a few hours I was able to pop it out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Rain Barrels Rain Barrel works great and the gutter diverted kit is great and easy to install. My only issue is that the barrel is totally enclosed and only way to put water in it is by the diverter hole. There is no way to get inside to clean in future should algae, etc form on inside. I ended up drilling holes in top and buying a planter to use as a lid.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not disappointed but not compeletely satisfied. Great concept, but could be easier to collect rain water if the downspout went directly into the barrel. The amount of water collected is minimal, unless it's raining really hard all day. We might end up drilling a hole in the top to connect directly to the downspout. Is asthetically pleasing though.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pretty but comes with work; nice once completed We were having drainage issues in our front courtyard but couldn't find a way to rapidly without long gutter downspouts everywhere. I had the idea to install four of these rain barrels. When they were delivered they were in good condition but we quickly noticed that there was not a hole drilled that would allow water to flow freely in down from the downspout. It comes with a diverter kit that has to be installed with your downspouts. Luckily we happen to be getting gutter upgrades in these areas so I had the installation guys put in diverter kit it it comes with a diverter kit that has to be installed with your downspouts. Luckily we happen to be getting gutter upgrades in these areas so I had the installation guys put in diverter kits however I had to go out and buy a drill bit that would drill through this heavy plastic material so we could install and connect the plastic hose that comes from the downspout into the barrel. Had I known that it would be much more complicated to get up and running I may not have purchased them however now that it's done I'm really liking it. Please be aware that during heavy rains water is both diverted to the rain barrel and still comes out of your downspout. The hoses that come with it work nicely and reach to the top of the planter just fine. I use these to fill watering cans and make my rounds to my other pots. It would be nice if the holes for the hose were pre-drilled however I understand why they are not. It would be impossible to know how you are positioning it near your downspouts. Better to get a custom fit and do it yourself I guess. Just a lot more work.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Looks Great on front porch It was fairly easy to install (first rain barrel I have installed), although the seal around the tap leaked, so I had to buy sealant for that. And the valve also leaks when open, so I will end up replacing that once the barrel is empty. So, it's not "ready out of the box" or I would give it 5 stars.
