Product Overview

The Emsco Group RESCUE 60 Gal. Terra Cotta Decorative Rain Barrel with integrated Planter and an easy-to-install 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 but 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
  • 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 60 Gal. of rainwater

Customer 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.

60 Gal. Terra Cotta Decorative Rain Barrel Kit with Planter and Diverter System is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 155.
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 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.

Bought and installed two of these, they both work great and already full from the last rain. One works perfect the second has a small leak between the green feed hose and the valve unit. We found if we mount the exit hose so it is above the water line there is no leaking. I wish I had bought two more!

When it was delivered it had two small flat spots on each side from storage/shipping. I set it out in the sun for about an hour on each side and they came right out.

It was much lighter than I expected so very easy to move to the right spot and set up. It also looks very good and does not look like an "ugly" repurposed barrel converted to a water barrell

Setup was simple and installing the gutter diverter was easy. I plan on expanding by adding more barrels later. Great product!
