Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by brattsgirl I wish I had room for more
I bought 2 of these and linked them together. I have a bad back and the hardest part was readjusting the downspout which my son did. It rained the first night and the next morning I couldn't wait to see how much water I had. The first barrel was full and the second one was about a foot from the top. It was just a normal rain and only for a few hours. If I had the room I'd get a couple more for all the flowers I planted. I have put some in empty containers for watering the indoor plants as well. Now I can't wait to see how much difference it makes in my water bill. These are the sturdiest I've found and make sure you put them where you want them because once the are full they are really heavy to move.

This product is made of high quality plastic. It receives the rain run off from my roof that does not have gutters. The removable screening on top of the opening is durable and last for years. I purchased this same product 5 years ago and have not had to make any repairs to it.
It has helped greatly with watering the garden near its location along with erosion prevention of the soil near the house.

Fairly straightforward installation. Online product description should indicate that tubing for linking to additional rain barrel is included in kit.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Buzzy Works great but not 54 gallons
this is a 45 gallon rain barrel as the paperwork from the company states. First rain after set-up was 1/2" and it filled the back barrel to overflowing. The front barrel was carried off in a gust of wind and had to be retrieved from my neighbors yard. It didn't suffer any damage so they are pretty tough. I will be ordering 2 more to set them up in tandem. Wish it came in a tan or beige.

We purchased three of the Rain Catcher barrels in mid summer. The barrels rapidly fill with even a small rain. Easy to set up. Attractive. I attach a hose to water flower beds; or use a watering can to water pots and individual plants. We plan to purchase more. Excellent product!

My friends have one of these and after looking on line at the several models we decided to purchase the same model. It was easy to assemble and works great. After one rainfall the barrel was full. The way the top is open allows the rain water to fill easily. The hose at the bottom drain is easy to use. If I needed more of these I would purchase the same model.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BonnieS Excellent quality, Highly recommended.
The removable top screen makes cleaning of the barrel very easy. The out spout nicely fits to a standard water hose, no special waterhose or connection needed. One negative is the tubing that connects to the overflow spout and is also provided to connect two barrels together is too flemsy. My husband constructed a better overflow tubing with pvc pipe.

Wehave already purchased four barrels for use as emergency water storage and are awaiting delivery on a fifth barrel. We have a small home with probably less than 100 feet of vinyl guttering. One half inch rain last week filled all four barrels! As stated, we bough these primarily for water storage but are using the water to water our garden vegetables having heard that rainwater is superior to treated tap water.We
