Can multiple barrels be linked together?

I want to link 2 of these barrels together. I notice that other brands sell a linking kit - does RTS have something similar? I don't see anything on the Home Depot site. Thanks.

What happens when is rain barrel is full? Is there an overflow spout?

Asked by: GG
it come out of the pipe nozzle at the front center near the top. You can also cut open the nubs on either side of the barrel to connect a second barrel for increased storage.

Customer Reviews

50 Gal. Rain Barrel with Woodgrain Brass Spigot is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 137.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from expensive and defective The spigots don't fit in the holes properly on either of the two barrels we bought. And since the problem was consistent on both barrels, it must be a design issue. Now we are stuck with two huge barrels and will have to fight public transportation to return them to home depot. We specifically bought the more expensive ones this time b/c my last home depot rain barrels (around $80 each) only lasted one season. Now reading other reviews with "easy" instructions to fix the problem involving belts, suspenders, plumbers tape, and silicone spray. Is this a joke? There are two pieces, this was not supposed to be a weekend project.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The product was overall very good. I ordered four rain barrels just prior to gutter installation. This made it easy to have gutter drains installed to accomodate them. I have been pleased with the barrels. A light rain will easily fill the barrels. I use them to water all the trees, bushes, and the garden. I purchased four stands for the barrels and would suggest doing it. They look great and set the barrels high enough to allow easier water draining. The only problem that I have been having with the barrels is when filled completely sometimes the screen on the top will float and slide down the front of the barrel. Sometimes they will fall onto the ground or into the barrel water and float to the bottom. I solved this problem by placing a medium size rock on one side of the screen. I recommend the manufacture comes up with a solution to this problem for future barrels.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome product! Just what the doctor ordered! However, using a water hose is a bit challenging as you have to keep the watering end "below" the height of the spigot. We have it about 15" high on landscaping bricks, but the water flow is insufficient. (for our needs) Naturally, you can't use the last 4" in the barrel because of the spigot, but I just turned it over to empty it out. Plus, the daisy chain connections allow you to add multiple barrels, which we are going to do. 50 gallons fills up VERY fast! *Note: it is NOT round as the backside is flat to fit up against the house. YOU'RE GOING TO LOVE THIS BARREL!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good, bad, but not ugly Aesthetically, the barrel is great. The wife and I love how it fits into our overall landscaping. Although the flat back side of the barrel cuts down on it's capacity (one good rain fills it), it's nice to have it flush to the garage with the gutter draining directly into it. The 2 major problems with this product involve the spigot. 1) The spigot location is at the very bottom, which is great for allowing a more complete drainage of the barrel. However, it also requires that the barrel be raised to attach a hose to it. Landscaping blocks under the barrel and some mulch piled up in front solved this problem in the landscaping, but does not solve the problem if placed on a patio or other surface that cannot be camouflaged (which is where we wanted to put it). 2) The spigot itself is well made, but its female counterpart in the barrel is poorly drilled and almost always produces cross-threading (as mentioned by many others). Be sure to use plumbers tape and a lot of patience when inserting the spigot or you'll wind up with a $100+, aesthetically pleasing, raised drain with no holding capacity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Rain Barrel The rain barrel is constructed very well and it works great. Other people have apparently had problems screwing in the spigot, but I did not. I've purchased two of these (and I'm thinking about another one), and I was able to thread the spigots without a problem. I laid it flat on it's back and began threading by hand. As it got tight, I applied pressure with one hand, and tightened with a wrench in the other hand. They threaded tight with no leaks. As others have advised, the rain barrel needs to be raised off the ground to attach a hose. I used decorative concrete blocks from my local HD.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Conserving H2O My wife is into reusing water (saving any water used inside the house) for her outdoor plants. She would also use garbage cans to collect the water. I decided to get the four barrels and she felt it was a waste of time and money. Once they were in place, she stated that they looked pretty good, giving me her stamp of approval. We live in Southern California and are in our 7th year of drought. We just had some rain come our way and now we have 300 gallons of H2O for her plants and fruit trees. The $75 rebate per barrel for up to four barrels per residence is great too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best purchase Our rain gutter installer recommended this rain barrel and installed it for me. This is the best thing ever! It filled up after just a few rains and I use it to water all my plants. Really wish I had another. And, it looks great also. It has an overflow that works great - no mess - very environment forward! A must have!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We're REALLY pleased with this product! These rain barrels are very nice looking. We purchased 3 because we needed better control over our downspout runoff. In heavy rains, the drains couldn't keep up, the water would pool and our basement would flood. Now we've positioned the rain barrels under the downspouts, attach hoses to the spigots and redirected the water into the yard and away from the house. In the summer, we'll close the spigots and save the runoff for the gardens. Be aware that the spigot is very low to the ground. In order to attach a hose, you'll need a stand under the barrel. You can purchase one, or you can do like we did and make a simple wooden box and fill it with pea gravel. We made ours 12" high so a bucket will fit under the spigot.
