    A:  We don't control the retail prices, which are determined by the retailer. Regards the EarthMinded Team

      A:  I agree that it was way too expensive for what you get. There’s probably less than $1.25 worth of plastic but it includes the hole saw which I assume is far more costly than the plastic tube and rubber grommets. A word of caution... the hole saw I received with the kit to install the spigots was of such poor quality that it wasn’t perfectly round and thus cut a hole that was too big and now the spigot pops out when the barrel fills!

        A:  It's not the plastic, it's the huge metal drill bit that's the bulk of the cost. This kit is worth every penny! I have 2 barrels daisy chained using this kit and both barrels are full most of the summer.

            Answer This Question

            A:  It should work, but the hose is only 31", you may want to consider our Rain barrel overflow hose kit, it has a 5' long hose. If the accordion hose included doesn't fit your sump pump, you may need and adaptor or you can hard pipe the connections with 1' schedule 40 PVC. it has a 1.25 in outside diameter that will fit snug into the rubber hose seal included in the kit.

              great product!
              This kit was used as it is designed: to link two barrels. This went very smoothly, installation is easy, and we love the final result!

              Worked fine. Good instructions, including the hint to use a bit of Vasoline to ease the hose into the rubber grommet.

              All I needed was the "tube" that went between the barrels because I had linked my barrels 2 years ago and the tube broke during storage. It worked just fine. I just wish I could have purchased just the tube instead of the entire kit.
