Customer Questions & Answers

Does the lid come off easily to get water with a bucket?

Does the lid come off easily to get water with a bucket?
Asked by: Judy
It snaps on so it does take a bit of an effort to get it off, but not much. I suppose you could just not snap it back on if you wanted it to be super easy.

What are dimensions of base?

I need to build platform under this and will be stacking paverstone. I need to know dimensions for base. Thanks.
Asked by: sciman
The base is about 19 inches by 19 inches. For me, it fit nicely on 4 one foot by one foot cement slabs.

Can a standard garden hose be attached to the drain hose for additional length to reach a garden?

Asked by: MnM
If you mean the lower drain hose, then yes, easily. It has an on-off valve and a male hose end with a cap. If you mean the overflow hose, then you would have to attach a hose end to it first.

We ordered this rain barrel because it was the only one available which was short enough to effectively capture the water from our new swamp cooler. Sometimes we connect it to the hose to drip water our raspberry patch, but mostly I use my sprinkling can to hand water the garden. (lots of trips, good exercise) We have had it over a month now and are very happy with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ... The barrel was picked up at Home Depot, after unpacking it I found it to be in PERFECT condition! One small problem: There were no washers on the bulk head fittings. I called Suncast , told them of the omission. The woman at customer service quickly sent out two replacement bulkheads!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Yeoman's Worker I have four of these and have been using them for three years now. They have held up extremely well. They are not designed to be maintenace free--they have to be cleaned out from time to time and repositioned but that's true of all such products. I will warn anyone who wants to capture their rain water, to have a plan for what to do with it once caught. 50 gallons is a lot of water and you won't be able to lift the barrel if it's full (400 lbs) and suspect that it was attempting to move that weight that resulted in the problems reported by other reviewers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 5* for suncast customer service The barrel is well designed with an eye to functionality and aesthetics. 50g fills super fast in an Arizona monsoon so, as someone else suggested, a single barrel often is merely a teaser for the full amount you can gather in a storm if you the capacity. I use it as my first barrel which then shunts into others in a connected series. I have had these now for over a year (we are in the highlands so we get below 0 degrees). One of mine cracked (as others have mentioned with ice expansion so no fault of there's. The other cracked without freezing (during the summer) in the same place. NOW, here is the reason for my 5* rating: The Suncast company was 100% interested in a). keeping me as a satisfied customer, b). gathering information about their product (from me) for quality control. Towards these ends, they sent me (no questions asked, no hesitation) replacement barrels in a couple of days for 0 charge (no cost, no shipping). THIS IS A COMPANY THAT STANDS BY ITS PRODUCTS AND CUSTOMERS. So, in summary, yes, they have had some structural issues with the first versions of these barrels. Yes, they are aware of this and working quickly to fix it. They told me the latest versions are now fully up to the task. And, yes, if there is ANY problem with the product, they will stand by it without question and without delay. They merely apologize, thank you for your business, ask for information about what went wrong and send you a new barrel. A GREAT company in this respect. Thus, i would strongly recommend their products.
