As noted by other reviews urn was missing spicket and 3 days late on arrival. From HD at customer service counter contacted manufacturer and informed me item will be shipped. Item did not arrive by stated date. Contact HD again and new shipping date was provided by manufacturer. Still no parts so I contacted manufacturer who informed me missing item not processed yet and given new shipping date. While this was going on gutters were installed on home. Item also had loose drain tubes from plant tray fall into urn, bad glue job I was going to fix with hot glue gun. The sides where half of urn is joined to other half had aprox 1/4 inch raised seam where it just looked bad and was sharp. I ended up just returning item. I am not going to cut into brand new gutter install to fit this urn waste of time.

so far so good it takes a lot of time to level against the wall on the flat portion side . Careful sliding it around as the bottom is flimsy . It could be the cause of leaks I have seen in some reviews . Had to cut hole in mesh as the filter is too fine and will not allow water to pass through, causing overflow.
I put nesting and plants so I have yet to have a shower yet to test that out . I am sure some dirt will get into the barrel . I put rocks around the 2 little holes at top.

I am so glad I purchased this product. I was able to install it myself in less than 20 minutes. Make sure you purchase the kit needed to install it. I plan on purchasing another rain barrel for the other corner of my house.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by why Check for contents!
I bought 4 of these--it hasn't rained yet, but I'm assuming that they're water tight. 3 of the 4 did not have the spigot. I should have checked, Home Depot has burned me before and it's always with a big ungamely product that I won't want to lug back to the store. Part of me thinks its intentional, so I'll buy the spigot at the competition. The entire barrel is one piece of molded plastic--the only way to get inside is to unscrew a 3 x 7 plastic grate on top, so I don't think that it will be possible to clean the inside (also makes you wonder how it's possible for the spigot to disappear!).

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Gumbam280981 Good product but some minor nuances that prevents it from being great
I am not sure what other products are out there - but the mesh on the barrel doesnt let water through freely. Most of the water comes out. I removed the mesh and barrel was full within no time. I am planning to customize this a bit to add my own mesh which will remain inside (like a internal filter) vs. what is provided because the current design impedes water collection and is not efficient

Had to modify it so the water wouldn't run all over my legs. Modified the screen and modified the side run off gutters.
It fits the side of our house under our kitchen window.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DIYgal Great design
The urn is definitely functional. More than that, the flat back and design, overall, allows for easy placement under a rain spout in the front yard area without looking out of place. I ordered two of these. One came with the (metal) faucet, the other did not. It was easy enough (and inexpensive) to get a quality metal faucet for the urn that came without faucet. Both of the urns are raised up so that i can easily open the faucet/spout to fill a 5-gallon Homer bucket (repeatedly) for watering. The planter area on the top allows for the ability to plant some small plantings - and is designed to ensure the planter does not overflow (no drowned plants). There is the option on the back to connect more than one urn in a daisy-chain, but I haven't played with that, so can't speak to it. Very happy with this purchase - especially given the increased rainy season here in Sacramento/California this winter.

Ordered two, one of which arrived with broken spout part. Local store helped make it right. Barrels scratched and scraped - maybe in transit? Boxes torn.
