Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 58 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Insubstantial and over-priced I bought two of these barrels to replace plastic garbage cans I had been using for rain barrels. Initially, they worked well, but come winter and ice in the bottom and I found, next spring, leaks from rather large cracks in the bottom. This barrel is not designed to endure the rigors of a northeast winter. My recommendation is to buy a used polyethylene food rated barrel, used to ship pickles, olives, etc. in shipping containers. Very robust and winter worthy. June 20, 2012
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by barrel sprung a leak in first month I would not recommend this barrel--too flemsy and the bottom came apart and the rainwater leaked out. I have two other barrels that have worked fine, but are much sturdier and solid. The Rescue barrel came apart and I had to glue it together after only a month of use. July 11, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Let It Rain I'm very pleased with the multifunctional rain barrel. I can fill my watering can from the top. . . or, use the very handy faucet. The one thing that my husband pointed out while determining location for our two rain barrels is to make sure they are not sitting on the ground. We found it most beneficial if they were elevated (about one foot) to help the flow for more pressure out the faucet. June 2, 2011
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Works fine but I didn't install this as designed I purchased this before doing any research on or having any experience with rain-barrels. It is basically a trash container with a plastic faucet and a downspout diverter. I didn’t install this as designed but the instructions are clear and it shouldn’t be too difficult. After some research, I decided not use the included diverter since I felt the fill design was undersized. It was easy to run the downspout directly into barrel using a short flexible adapter. This also meant I needed to add an overflow outlet on the barrel. For me I could have saved money just buying a trash container to begin with. I recommend anyone considering a rain barrel to do some research since there are multiple cheap DIY designs on the internet. July 17, 2010
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by trash can rain barrel had to buy plastic epoxy to repair the cracks that continue to show up .. this is during the summer. Very unhappy with this rain barrel. My water hose fitting does not fit the spigot. Over all not a very good choice. August 28, 2010
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 60Gal. Deluxe Rain Barrel (DRB) The barrel is 'good' and could do the job. I purchased 1 pc. DRB to supplement my backyard's 2 exisiting rain barrels (which I could no longer afford to buy because of their rising cost). The HomeDepot DRB material & appearance, although a little bit inferior when compare to those of my existing & expensive ones, could serve the same purpose. Its easy to install, and its piping system is easy to reconfigure to suit my requirements. I collected rainwater after a heavy rain last night,..right now all my barrels are filled to their capacity - and the DRB is standing tall side by side with my expensive barrels with no problem at all.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Simple and effective We installed this product in under an hour and it works exactly as advertised. Not only are we saving water but now in heavy rains it collects the water that otherwise was seeping into the basement on that side of the house! We only regret not setting it on three tiers of cinder blocks rather than two, for ease of use. June 14, 2011
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by poor quality I've had this for 10 months now. you get what you pay for, and I only paid $70 with free shipping. there were a few hairline cracks in it and now the bottom is completely cracked. I bought a used 55 gal food container that I refurbed and it's doing a lot better. the material is only fair at best and the lid fits poorly. the base has to be completely flat and level, otherwise, the weight of the water will cause cracks and eventual failure. don't think I can recommend it.
