Questions & Answers

How do you manage overflow isuues? Can water drain around the diverter when the barrell is full?

Asked by: Ginslc
There is a diverter that comes with it.....and I watched as it rained and filled, when the barrel was full it went out the gutter they way it is suppose to! No issues at all...works great!

Water pressure

How is the water pressure on this barrel?
Asked by: Wonjie
there is no water pressure except gravity. The fuller the better and the higher you can put it the better but otherwise its just a matter of good ole gravity.

can you paint the plastic so it's not black?

Asked by: AZrainsaver
I'm sure you can. Just buy the colored ones. I'm buying black for my shed. it's cheaper and I will soon be covered with Grapes Vines.

RainStation 45 Gal. Recycled Black Rain Barrel with Diverter is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 319.

And I just re-read them again. If you have no common sense or basic mechanical skills, then these are not for you. My opinion is that THESE ARE GREAT ! Our flowers have never looked better. We have (salt) softened well water, so our water is not exactly plant friendly. The "RAIN BARREL" water is just the trick. Yeah, yeah they kinda look like plastic garbage cans, but this is where the common sense comes into play. We bought charcoal grill racks at Lowe's ( not sure if I can say that here ) and they fit perfectly inside the upturned lid to put a flower pot, with potato vines, that covers the can ... I mean barrels. The diverters work PERFECTLY and filled them up in NO TIME !

Filled up to the top the first rain storm!Very easy to install, it only took an hour or so and it looks great!!! I am going to get another one for the front gutter. I have attached a photo of it in action on the first rain! I was able to use that rain to water all my potted plants for days.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Overall it works! Great looking well thought out design but fell short in one area. Although it is fairly easy to assemble the included spout attachment design is flimsy and can easily be pulled out allowing the collected water to escape. This could be easily remedied by including some type of plastic inside and outside nut to better secure the faucet. The only other issue I have is probably because my expectations were to high and that's the amount of water pressure that comes out of a 50' garden hose. If you lay it at the base of what your watering it will flow but if you try to water a hanging plant for instance.....forget it. We have adapted by simply using a watering can.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as stated These barrels work as stated and intended. After 2 days of rain, our barrels were filled to the brim. All I had to do was find things to fill with water! It was great just moseying up to the 'tap' and filling the waterer for my chickens and the plants. They're not hard to attach to downspouts-they give you all the pieces and parts needed, although I did splurge on the brass fittings instead of the plastic ones included. The biggest pain was getting the spot level of where the barrel would sit, but clearly nothing to do with the product. It is a gravity fed process so don't expect to attach a hose and it work like a firehose.

After buying another brand from a different vendor, which came really damaged, we purchased two of these since each held less than what we wanted. We are thrilled with these and the customer service the company provides if you want or need to get any spare parts. These come with everything needed even the hole saws! We got them installed just before we received a half inch of rain, installation is way nicer since you don't have to cut section out of your downspouts . It was amazing both our barrels quickly filled, we had the overflow drain in to a pond to top it off, and also into a trough to capture all the extra water we could. Worked like champ!

The instructions were easy to follow but I must stress: YOU SHOULD FOLLOW THEM!! I love my husband but he looks at the pictures and thinks ok that's all I need to know but I had seen in a review that someone else wrote to follow the instructions exactly and everything would work out fine. And it did. the only problem we have is that the water faucet will not seal tightly enough and it leaks water. We will probably seal it with something to make that stop (don't know if it's just a defect in our can or if all of the barrels have this problem). Love, love, love the diverter! very clever! Was delivered quickly and was set up in no time. I highly recommend this rain barrel!

Purchased two of these because they were 80 bucks each and that appeared to be a great deal. You know what they say about getting what you paid for. Very unhappy. They are glorified trash cans. Super flimsy/cheap. Have to put rocks or gravel in them to keep them from blowing away or allow water to stagnate. The diverter kit is not as nice of quality as the other two barrels I purchased from home depot that were only 20.00 more and night and day better in quality. Spend the extra 20 bucks. These aren't even good enough to be trash cans. I wish they offered zero stars as a rating.

Installation was easy since it came with everything you need to get it done and great instructions. We did make stands for them to give it a bit more water pressure. The spicket is great for buckets or a watering can and the hose connection is good for larger jobs. I feel I am too late in the season to use the planter but look forward to doing that next year. Functional, decorative, money saver, great for the environment...can't think of a thing I don't like about these.
