Product Overview

  • Enclosed System keeps out Mosquitoes and other harmful Pests
  • Diverter System causes water to flow into Barrel when its empty
  • Diverter redirects water to downspout when the Barrel is full
The Emsco Group RESCUE 60 Gal. Sandstone Rain Water Urn with Planter 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 sandstone
  • 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 60 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

Questions & Answers

Just want to confirm this 60 gallon is completely round and not with a flat back? I'm looking to make water feature w/it

Our downspouts are 4 1/2 x 3 inches, not 3 x 2 inches. Can the diverter accommodate the larger downspout?

Asked by: SkyToucher
Yes the diverter is double ended. One end accepts 4 1/2 x 3 and the other end is 3x2.

In a heavy rain water is gushing out where the diverter is attached to the cut downspout. Is there a fix for this problem

Asked by: Kat
You might have some blockage in the diverter. Would recommend installing a mesh or debris catcher at the top of the down sprout. If not the case, then the amount of rain is exceeding the ability of the diverter's drain hole. Therefore the diverter would safely overflow.

We were lucky in the fact that we were having gutters installed when we purchased the barrel and the installer was able to insert the diverter in the downspout for us. Does a great job catching the rain, I have plenty to water my plants. Also, enjoy being able to plant flowers in the top.

It was easy to install and works great. It arrived on time and was crushed on two sides. I let it sit in the garage over night and then took a rubber mallet to it and the areas popped out. Now that it has filled with water, you can't even tell it was crushed and no leaks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very attractive and straight-foreward setup We bought two barrels with free shipping and they arrived quickly. The biggest part of installation was building sturdy bases for them; for one I used paver blocks that matched our front flower bed area and for the other I used bricks left over from old projects. The instructions for installing the urns were pretty good, but didn't explain that the loose grommet in the package was to go in the hole I drilled in the urn for the fill tube. We had a 1/4 inch rainfall right after I installed the first urn and it filled the entire barrel. Looking forward to using these to water vegetables and flowers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Functional and Decorative As Well It's been a week since we installed our water urn and we couldn't be happier. Installation was relatively easy. It looks great on my patio. My gardener liked it a lot but didn't realize it was a rain barrel until I told him. We used two rows of decorative wall blocks to raise the urn about 8” inches. I believe it improves the water pressure coming out of the bottom hose. I also fashioned a hose hook using a wire hanger. The reason I gave it 4 stars is because we had to apply additional silicone around the hose bib. We had the foresight of testing it to check for leaks before allowing the barrel to fill up completely. Now it's working just fine. Overall, it’s well made and the terra cotta color is very realistic as you can see in the picture. Highly recommended. Besides, I knew that if I needed to return it, I could take it back to the local store. Something to think about when ordering something this big!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall Very Nice I purchased this for the front of my house, and it looks very nice. Has a nice texture to the plastic so it doesnt look like a typical rain barrel. The flower pot on the top is a nice feature to help it blend in. I have only had it installed for about a month now, but so far the hose and nozzle to disperse water has been great. It is super easy to fill a watering can to water plants! The installation wasn't too difficult either. I was skeptical of the diverter, but it works very nicely and provides an alternative when the rain barrel fills. Overall, I am very pleased and would purchase this barrel again!
