Product Overview

The Emsco Group RESCUE 80 Gal. waterstone Rain Barrel with Downspout Diverter in sandstone combines function and function to offer a rain barrel that easily blends in with your garden decor. The rain barrel can even be connected to a soaker hose for convenient watering of nearby plants. 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. The realistic Waterstone design allows you add beauty or hide unsightly objects such as pumps, pipes or sprinkler valves.

Customer Reviews

80 Gal. Waterstone Rain Barrel with Downspout Diverter is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Needs ALOT of rework The idea and look is great. But I had issues. The entry orifice is 3/4 inch. If you expect Iowa rain from a down spout to convert to 3/4 " hole, you've never been here. The downspout converter allowed for excess water (probably what would not go into the hole) to bypass. Created rather a mess. There was no shut off valve at the bottom. The manufacturer sent a form of one later, but I'll just buy my own. I kept it ONLY becase I like the stone look. Lot of work to make it work properly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Multi-purpose rain barrel Being adjacent to a fairly busy street in a residential area, we've been concerned that someone may end up in our yard or house if there were a collision at the nearby 4-way stop. In order to minimize the chance of a careening vehicle hitting the house, I placed 3 of these rain barrels between a low hedge (obstacle #1) and the wall of the house. They are much more attractive than Cal-Trans style traffic barrels or barriers, and provide water storage and an extra level of protection for us. Easy to move, place, fill, and they blend in with the earth-tone colors of the house and yard!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Better than a barrel The bottom fitting leaks where it connects to the container, and the tubing to be used from the diverter surely wouldn't carry much water. How long the container lasts, only time will tell.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Waterstone Rain Barrel This rain barrel was easy to install and seems sturdy enough. I bought two; both came with all the essential parts and good instructions (with pictures) but only one hose gasket was included with both. It moderately rained last night for about three hours and most of the water drained out rather than get redirected to the rock. I had the local handyman check installation and everything looks correct. Rigid tubing does not turn corners well. It was the largest size available when I placed my order. This was 80 gallons as opposed to the next available 50 gallons. Larger ones have since become available. My intention was to prevent the rivers that are being carved in my yard from gutter drain off. This did not quite meet that purpose because it does not drain off all the water; only some.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very interesting and nice looking. Not sure how well it is filling--not enough rain yet. Could use a "fill strip" like on some gas cans to see how it's filling. It was easy to install (although cutting a gutter with a hacksaw is not easy but no fault of the waterstone--my coordination) and makes the area outside my windows look like a Japanese garden--very attractive.
