Product Overview

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.

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

Customer Reviews

60 Gal. Sandstone Decorative Rain Barrel Kit with Planter and Diverter System is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 155.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from sealed top The top is sealed accept for weep holes so you cannot clean out the barrel of accumulated debris from the roof runoff. Algae eventually grows and cant be accessed for cleaning with the sealed top. Ours came dented and would easily bend back if you could access the inside.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Barrrel OK, but diverter system has problems The barrel itself works pretty much as designed, and is OK. The diverter kit mostly works, as designed, in light rain. However, if you have a heavy rain, it simply cannot handle the volume of water, and what happens then can become extremely problematic. The water will back up up your downspout, potentially all the way to the gutter. Water will be shooting out all sides of the downspout into the top of the diverter.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Decorative Rain Barrel with Installation Kit Easy to install, look forward to using collected water for our plants. Instructions were very complete and easy to follow. Like the brass connection for the water hose, as opposed to plastic ones on other rain barrels. Expect to be able to use this rain barrel for many years to come.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 50/50 review Loved the rain barrel however I did spray paint mine and it does look much better. The diverted does not work well .The water comes out the top instead of in the barrel or out the downspout. I will have to replace it with one that works, very disappointed in that part!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Second purchase of this attractive rain barrel I have purchase two of these rain barrels. I like the downspout diverter. It allows me to place the rain barrel in a spot of my choosing near the downspout instead of under it. Since the rain barrel fills up so quickly, having the downspout taking the overflow instead of an overflow drain on the rain barrel itself, keeps me from having a flood around the rain barrel. I like the planter, but with the shallow depth of the soil held in the top, you need to water often on hot days. This rain barrel looks like a terra cotta planter and it is attractive to have next to the house. Make sure you keep the barrel raised up off the ground for good water pressure when the barrel get low. You may want to change the cheap plastic shut off valve on the end of the hose with a good brass valve.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rain catcher I live in So Calif where it never rains and I love to catch what little rain water we get for my house plants. First day we set it up it rained that night and was filled 50% ... such a blessing to capture that great rain water. Unfortunately I forgot to close the hose after second use and wondered why it got low so fast! Easy fix on my bad.
