Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Wanda Rain Barrel Review
the rain barrel is beautiful; however, it was delivered with an approximate 2' black mark that goes from the front to the left . . . which does not come off.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Raebri Great value that works well and looks smart
Our 65 gallon rain barrel was very easy to install on a current downspout. It seems sturdy enough for our use. I love the top that fits a planter - Makes the Urn look more attactive in a garden setting.. The faucet included works well with our attached hose. After the first rain we wished the barrel was larger. We will need to figure out a diverter process to help catch the runoff once the barrel fills - which is very fast in a good rain. The plants Love this rain water and have never looked better!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by RustyCannon Good but not great
I got the sandstone color and when there is water in it, I can see the water line looking at the outside of the urn. That means that light is easily getting through and that means there will be algae problems. I would not recommend the sandstone color on that basis.
The shape of the urn looks fine from the front, but the squarish appendage on the back of the urn is downright ugly. Possibly if I paint that portion to match the siding of the house, it may not be such an eyesore.
The brass faucet is good but it screws into a what seems like a nylon fitting. Included with the urn is a roll of the white plumbers tape to wrap the threads. Normally you make three wraps. I did at least 3 and maybe 4 or 5. The faucet is screwed in as tightly as possible, but it still weeps at that threaded connection.
The planter depression on top is nice and deep (4-5") and has two drain holes that drain to the outside rear, keeping dirty water out of the urn. Best feature of this urn!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer Excellent style and design
I am not sure what theknobs on the back are for and there are no instructions for them being there. This barrel could have better overflow system but it was easy to make my own.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Scifly Mine is now in storage
First off the faucet dripped even after reinstalling several times. The filter doesn't work worth a hoot and I have a LOT of trash in the bottom of the barrel with no way to clean it out. Mosquitos lay eggs in the stagnating water inside. I put a homemade screen on it and it still lets the grit off the roof shingles fill the bottom layer and clogging the facet. Faucet was really cheap, low quality to start with. If I ever try to set it up again, the first thing I will do is get a quality faucet.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WildcatAdvocate Price was excellent through Home Depot - love it!
We installed this about a month ago right before a very big rainstorm. We installed a diverter in our downspout leading to the urn. After calling customer service, we found out why we didn't collect much of anything during the storm. The directions aren't very clear in the diverter instructions. Once we cleared that issue up, we've been collecting rainwater perfectly! We did raise it on bricks to elevate it and installed it on a hill so that we have pretty good water flow exiting it. It matched the brick of our house very nicely and I love the way it tucks against the wall. We didn't plant anything in the top since that would require lots of maintenance since there's no water source for the plants. Also, Home Depot's price was 20% less than Amazon and they had free shipping and you can return it to the store if any problems. That was the deciding factor for us.
