Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Amanda Great rain barrel
So far this rain barrel has been a great purchase. It was a little frustrating having to drill the hole to connect it but it is working great and full from last weekends rainfall. I wish the instructions had recommended building up the base to have better flow out of the rain barrel but that will be an easy fix eventually.

We have purchased three of these barrels. Two 65 gal and one 85 gal. We purchased Fiskars diverter systems to use with them rather than the included adapter/hoses. One of the barrels was dented when we received it but with a bit of pushing we were able to work the dent mostly out and after the barrel filled it completely went away. The barrels look very nice and all are functioning well. We really like the sandstone look and the top planter that make it very appealing to the eye.

Beautiful true to color & awesome texture. I liked it so much, I ordered another.
We live in Texas with no basement, so no worries about diverting rain away from the house. We sawed a hole in the top, cut the gutter to fit, drilled a hole near the top to drain overfill.

Haven used it yet: waiting for rain. But. The instructions were not very easy to understand. Thank goodness my husband is very handy

I waited for months, after several rains before writing this review even though I like the look and the ease of installation right after it arrived. Now we had a few rains, I can say that this rain barrel is perfect! It looks great. Up close, of course one would know that it's plastic. But from a couple of feet away, I had several visitors and neighbors fooled. The planter on top is a nice feature.
Installation was straight forward. You do need to have a drill and a saw. But I read online manual before the product arrived, so the husband and I got the tools ready. The supplied hose was more than long enough. We bought 4 altogether, with one on the top level of our property, directly next to gutter. We had 3 more on the lower part of the property in the back, about 3 stories down (yes, we live in a very steep hill) and 75 feet away. We connected the top one with the lower set with an old hose. The lower three were connected just like instructed with included material. Then we waited for rain.
Just like so many reviewers mentioned, we were surprised by how much water we collected from a short period of time. We had no problem filling up all 4 barrels each time it rains. I used the water to water my plants and am very satisfied that I'm doing something to conserve water. I think my plants are actually happier with rain water than with tap water.
Oh, and yes. Our local government has incentives and promptly sent me a rebate after I filled out the form and sent them the invoice. So I spent very little on these! But now that I know how well these work, I would say that it's worth it even if you have to pay for them out of pocket.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mareich 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.

This rain barrel is very nice looking, high quality as to some I seen in stores which looked like cheap plastic. I highly recommend this and the price was great also. I set a huge fern on top planter..looks awesome.
