Customer Questions & Answers

Roof debris run-off

We put a new roof on our house and we are still getting the fine little pebble like debris running off the roof shingles when it rains. Is the screen on this unit fine enough to filter this stuff out?
Asked by: Sher
it is also possable to make a p-trap to catch shingle debis using 90 deg fittings that fit your gutter downspout.

is a pump needed for the hose? how good is the water pressure when using the hose?

Asked by: bkbkbk333
If the flow is not enough for your needs, Home Depot has a great "solar" powered pump. No electric needed.

does this barrel come with an overflow outlet or must you make one at the knobs on the side?

Asked by: leroy
There is an overflow port at the front center of the barrel. It is about an inch above the two ports on the side. Any water overflowing will drain down the front of the barrel unless a true diverter is used on the downspout.

50 Gal. Rain Barrel with Brass Spigot is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 349.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent purchase Purchased two barrels, placed one on North side of house and one on South side on three cement blocks each on a Friday and got 2-1/2" of rain on Saturday and Sunday. The barrels did their job great. Because of the amount of rain and the quickness of the fill and run off, I have attached a soaker hose and will turn on spiget to keep the overflow from making a trench under the overflow area.

I have 3 of these and they are great the only problem is that sometimes the brass spigot leaks around the edges so have some teflon tape ready and before you screw it into the rain barrell wrap teflon tape around the threads and you won't have that problem. I also put silicone around the screen on top so the water can't get mosquitos in it!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Good money spent on a Bad product. When it got full, water leaked out one of the side connectors ... Good money spent on a Bad product. When it got full, water leaked out one of the side connectors that were intended to connect barrells together if desired. The connector had a hole in it and water leaked out before the level reached the intended overflow. I fixed that problem with silicone. In the meantime, the water floated the screen up and over a few times and bugs and debris got in the tank. I tried to drain water out spickot for cleaning tank and a wasp had gotten in tank when screen floated out of position. Not good. Had to cyphen water out to clean. Next problem, I went to dump the remaining water out. That doesn't work either. The top is recessed downward which will not allow you to pour out all of the water and debris. I had to mop it out with a towel. Screen does not fit good and barrell top is recessed all over which allows any dust or debis to go in the water anyway. Bad design. I did not know it would cost so much to buy a headache and take so much maintenance just to have a bucket of dirty water. My friends say it looks good, and it does, but that is the only positive thing about this product. It's looks! How long have I had it? Long enough to clean it 2 times and we have been in a drought. Imagine what will happen when it does rain a lot? Next question, Does it meet my expectations? .... Well friends... You figure that out!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome product This rain barrel came with everything I needed for a great price. I hooked my rain barrel up to my shed. Living in Oregon, it filled in 2 days off of 20 square feet of roof space. It is so easy to set up. I stacked 12 by 12 bricks under my barrel. I do recommend plumbers putty at the spigot. This one has a brass spigot, plastic ones don't last. After testing this one, I purchased another one and linked them together. Again, very easy for a 45 year old female. I hooked up a garden hose to mine. I love conserving water. It is a great investment. This is a must purchase. I believe we can all start conserving more water in this country!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wow! Fast Delivery, just what I needed this drought year in NH! I ordered this on 9/27/16, expected delivery date of 10/4/2016. I arrived to NH from OH 9/30/16 just in time for the first good rainfall we have had since May. I filled up 50% of the barrel. We have had both dug & drilled wells going dry here, I have been conserving about a 2' depth, this was welcome. I mounted it on cement blocks for drainage, didn't get the base. Did you flag people who need these? :) UPS delivered it. My 4 stars was due to the barrel, which the opening is only about 3" x 12". I am thinking of using my Dremel tool to make it bigger & make by own screen. It's below where the gutter just pours down, no down spout & a lot of the water splattered on the basement wall. So, it's actually 4.5 stars!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value deficeits based on low price I now have 4 of these. Screwing the spigot into the barrel IS an issue. There are NO REAL THREADS in the plastic barrel. This means that you MUST push the brass spigot down into the hole AS you turn it with a wrench. It will not be pulled in automatically and it will 'cross thread' very easily. The brass is actually cutting its way into the plastic. BE CAREFUL - work slowly, keep the spigot straight and it will work. If you are buying this barrel GET THE STAND also!! Without the stand you will not be able to screw a hose onto the spigot and when the barrel is full it is too heavy to move and then all you will be able to do is flood the area where the barrel is sitting.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Seems Fine Good design. The flat back made it easy to fit in. Seems to have strong enough walls. The quality of the product was average. The two halves did not fit well on one of the three barrels I bought. Means that it is harder to fit the (optional) connecting pipe across barrels. It is not easy to get the brass spigot threaded straight, even when following the recommendation of placing the barrel flat on the ground. I had to use a 3/4" tap to improve the cut of the threads. I am happy with the final installation. Looks good.
