Rain gutters are up, just didn't want to use the down spouts, so purchased an awesome rain chain to funnel the water down to the barrel..Do you think this barrel will be able to collect the water?

Answer: 
It might. Normal access per instructions is through the side. To use a rain chain, you could probably locate the barrel below the gutter and drill the access through the top instead of the side. This is not what the instructions describe, and would be a jury rig - there might be an issue with overflow when the barrel is full.

We are getting the rare California El Nino. It filled both urns but the water is spewing from the gutter "coupling" now that they are both filled within two days. A rare rain but any ideas? I stuffed it with plastic bags because we have a lot of mud around it from trenching associated with the project.

Answer: 
I'm answering my own question. The problem was our drain pipe was 2 x 2 and the diverter was 2 x 3. I wrapped some stick-on rubber weather seal around it once and cut two more pieces for each side that was the 3 inch side (total of 4 cuts). That pretty much sealed it up. If we get another down pour and it still leaks a tiny bit, I'll grout it.

85 Gal. Sandstone WaterUrn Decorative Urn Rain Barrel Kit with Integrated Planter is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 130.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from awesome way to gather free clean water This is a tall bulky item. It came in a cardboard box that had Zero, 0, zilch packing of any kind. the box was beat up and I thought it was going to be going back as it must be damaged from the box's condition. But much to my surprise the barrel come undamaged and showed no scratches etc from its rough handling. Followed the directions and it was ready to collect water in under 15 minutes of work to get it hooked up to a gutter downspout. First rain and it was 1/2 full, the second rain and it was totally filled. Only thing I would request is a deeper 'flower' pot on the top. It is not deep enough to take a large 1 gallon plant so buy lots of small plants that can grow into the available area that it has.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great water barrel I love this product. The planter on top is big enough for my herbs and the water barrel holds pleanty of water.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful rain barrel We water all our outdoor (and indoor) plants with rain water now, and this rain barrel is a lovely addition to our front landscape. We've also used the rain water to fill our kids' kiddie pool~the water is nice and clean. We have new gutters with new leaf guards which probably helps. We loved this so much we got a second one for the back yard a year later. Online YouTube videos helped us install it ourselves, but it did just fall over in a rainstorm, so we may need to have some help stabilizing it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice looking rain barrel. The product has a nice terracotta finish. I tested it by pouring water down the gutter and it did work, no water was pouring out of the rain spout. It was easy to install. The design is clever with the place for a potted plant on top, our main concern was how it would look like on the side of our pretty patio. We are pleased with the look. Only concern is the price... for a big plastic barrel it is overpriced.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Does not work. Water does not flow into barrel probably because there is no vent or other means for air to escape. Off take mechanism will not handle water in 4" down spout hence it spews out at installation point. This rain barrel set up seems to be made for very small roof areas and small down spouts in areas where rain falls gently.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from it's a Godsend! Very easy to follow instructions helped me to set up my first rain barrel very quickly. It's made a positive impact on my plants, because I use the rain water to fertilize instead of the city treated water. The plants respond so well to the rain water. I also planted flowers in the top and they're doing very well too!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good barrel, drill breather hole for proper filling This barrel installs fairly easily. I did mine in an evening after work. Make sure you have a solid footing to place it on, the instructions say it weighs 700 lbs when full. I built a base out of packed gravel, sand and some cinder blocks I had lying around. The instructions don't mention adding a breather hole, but if you don't the barrel won't fill properly and most of your rain water will just run down the drain. I drilled a 1/4" hole in the top of the barrel and that seems to do the trick.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Loved the look of this rain barrel it blended into my landscaping on the pool deck well, however it had a small hole in the seaming that you didn't notice until it was filled with water. I have ordered another one so let's hope for the best.
