Can it be safely used as emergency water tank?

Asked by ramfs August 28, 2020
1
Answer

Hi Ramfs, Yes, it would be safe as the plastic is bpa free and food grade. We recommend doing this only if you filter the water before drinking. Thank you, Alby@TeamAlgreen

Is the planter area on the top of the barrel capable of catching rain water?

Asked by JJ June 20, 2018

Answer

Hi JJ, Beside the planter area is an opening where water can flow in from your rain chain. The actual planting area at the top of the barrel is solid and does not have an opening for water to enter. Thanks, Team Algreen

The drain hose connection at the base of barrel disconnected when attaching a hose. A really terrible design. The black plastic male connecter was just glued to the outside of the barrel. When the hose was attached the weight of the hose broke the glue seal. I reattached the connecter with industrial epoxy, JB Weld Epoxy, and lots of it. The connector has held but I am afraid to move the barrel or disconnect the drain hose thinking that may cause the barrel to leak. Poor design..

I have always wanted a rain barrel and this is a nice one. The color is nice and I love the ability to attach a hose to one side of the barrel to water my plants. My one disappointment is that the valve that is close to the bottom for draining the barrel is not a good seal and allows water to leak on my deck. I am trying to find a way to stop the leak before it damages my deck. I might have to permanently seal that particular spout to stop the leak.

This is my second set of Algreen rain barrels. I purchased 2 Algreen Barcelona 100 gallon barrels several years ago. They are still in working order and I’m happy with them. I recently bought 2 Athena barrels. One leaked and I had to return it. The replacement barrel also leaks and it needs to be returned. There are other issues with workmanship. For example, the top of the barrel is a separate piece that is fused to the barrel. The top was not aligned properly before it was fused or glued so it creates an overlap. The one barrel that didn’t leak is working as it should.

The rain barrel is not structurally sound to sit unsupported. With the pictures available to evaluate the structure there were no pictures showing the back of the Barrel. The back has a large flat area being very weak. I placed the barrel on a solid base and allowed the water from the house to enter as we had been told there would be rain within a few days. When the rain entered the barrel and filled it up the flat spot in the back pushed outward and malformed the back. I do not believe the barrel was safe and removed it.
