The base is about 19 inches by 19 inches. For me, it fit nicely on 4 one foot by one foot cement slabs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very simple to set up. Attaching hoses was quick work.... Very simple to set up. Attaching hoses was quick work. Fitting your own downspout and connecting multiple barrels to each other is the biggest part of the job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 50 gal. Rain Barrel I don't even have rain gutters, I catch the rain that comes down from the eaves. After just two storms the barrel is 3/4 full. I do not have a water faucet in the back yard, so watering gets tiresome. I put a Mosquito Dunk in the barrel so I can use the water in the birdbath as well. Very satisfied!

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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from **DO NOT BUY **Complete Garbage Bought 2 of these and the first one failed at the bottom corner after only 1 month. I live in Florida, so we know it wasn't the cold and they are both in the shade so we know it wasn't the sun? Just yesterday, my other one failed but worse. The bottom corner cracked and then when I went to move it, the whole side cracked, spilling 50 gallons of water on to my lawn. These are complete garbage and should be pulled from the shelves. Do companies even QC their products anymore ?????

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Waiting for rain Fairly easy to assemble. Directions are easy to read and follow. We used 4 square column blocks instead of the cinderblocks they recommend as a base, along with 8 square pavers for the top & bottom. The size seemed to fit better and we won't have to worry about weather damage to plywood. Now we just need some rain to see how they work! We chose this model over some of the "prettier" ones because of the great reviews and the comments about how well the company stood behind the product when there were problems. We have a compost barrel from the same company and it has stood up very well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from replacement for my old one which has a leak The rain barrel was easy to put together and does its job. The customer service people were very helpful and efficient in getting the ordered rain barrel from their back room. Didn't have to wait very long for assistance. Very impressed with the courtesy and efficiency of the customer service department
