Q:I see in the dimensions it says the width / depth is 23.5". That's at the widest point. What's the width/depth off the base? I'm looking to build a stand (not buy a store bought).

Q:Is there a shut off valve at the bottom of the barrel? The picture shows a hose coming out but no valve. If not, is there a shutoff valve available. If not, is the base of the barrel sturdy enough to install a shutoff valve of my own?

Answer This Question

A:  According to product picture and online videos (https://youtu.be/bSVgjXnfcio?si=cfJX1TUn-juXZT_p&t=127), only drain cap is provided for bottom of barrel. However, you can switch the position of the drain cap and spigot (or add your own shutoff valve).

    Q:Is the granite color gray or tan? It looks gray in the photos, but someone posted that it arrived as tan. Perhaps that was an error. Which is it? Thanks!

    Answer This Question

    A:  If, by tan, you mean Terracota (https://www.homedepot.com/p/EarthMinded-RainStation-45-Gal-Terracotta-Rain-Barrel-with-Diverter-RS45-TC/203260836), then it sounds like the wrong size was delivered (45 gallon instead of 50 gallon).

      I bought a rain barrel like this one 9 years ago and I absolutely love it, I divorced and I wanted to take it with me but my ex husband wanted it too, and he kept it after long negotiations LOL. So, I bought a few for my new home, I installed them myself, they come with everything needed, and I still think they are awesome.

      Tap broke off after only a few uses, and zero customer service
      I do like the idea and look of this rain barrel, and the recycled materials in the black version. Installation was relatively simple, and for a few weeks the rain barrel worked perfectly. It collected water easily, didn't overflow when full, and everything was grand. Unfortunately after that the spigot handle broke off (thankfully in the closed position) and the tap became unusable, meaning I have to remove the top and plunge my watering can into it any time I want to use the water it's collected. I've tried to contact Earthminded but their customer service is absolutely non-existent. I've called the number on the warranty, and it disconnects immediately. I've tried emailing but it redirected to a different company. Unless I can get a replacement tap sent out, my only option is to return it to Home Depot, but that's also very unappealing seeing as how it's currently filled with water, and I'd be left with a hole in my gutter downspout. Ultimately, very disappointing.

        Got 2 of them. Easy install, good directions. Works great. Will likely get 2 more.

        Its decent for the price. The patented line that they use does not stay straight so instead of the water going down the downspout when it is full, it overflows from the barrel side.

        Note: Granite color is Tan. This rain barrel does exactly what it says it does. All of the parts needed for installation are included and my husband installed it alongside the house on a downspout in less than 30 minutes. We got 1/2 inch of rain and it filled the barrel and more. The overflow went down the spout like it should. For my purposes, I'm not using the planter so the top just looks like a rounded barrel top. Granite color, which looks grey on my laptop, is tan, not grey at all. I was a little disappointed since I paid more than I would for black because I wanted grey to match our shutters and deck paint. No mosquitoes can get into the barrel and it's easy to pop the top off to check the water level. The spigot is so high that I would not be able to access the bottom part without attaching a hose to the bottom. I realize that the placement is to allow for a bucket to go under the spigot and a 2-gallon bucket definitely does. I'm going to order another one to make sure I don't run out of rain water during a dry spell.

        No Customer Service @ EarthMinded
        We bought 2 barrels. We selected these barrels because the rain diverter was supposed to stop filling the barrel when it was full. IT DOES NOT STOP FILLING AND THE BARRELS OVERFLOW. We installed the barrels and diverters exactly per instructions. We have called EarthMinded Customer Service 3 times and only reach an answering machine. EarthMinded does not return calls. Overall we are satisfied with the quality of everything but the diverters. We have had to install PVC pipe overflows which greatly distracts from the stylish look of the barrels (see picture - click the pic to see the whole image).

        It doesn't get any simpler than this...no brainer.
        As per the other reviewers, I found the product as advertised. Took less than an hour to prep the base, level and install. Did it all in the lull between rain storms. After I wrapped up the project, the rain came down and through the night my barrel collected as much as possible and now it's full of free water! I'll attach a timed irrigation system to it and let it do all of the work. My plan is to have one at each corner of my house. So far so good. Worth every penny!

        The plants love me!
        The instruction are easy to follow, however, you should read them first before starting. Leveling the ground is quite important. Try not to jump ahead. After completion, we had two soft rains, which filled the barrel to three quarters. However, I use it a lot and we are not getting enough rain to keep it filled. The two fitting that expel the water leaked on my first attempt to install them. I had to tighten both more than suggested in the instructions. Filling my water bucket was made easy by attaching a four-foot hose to the valve fitting. With no children in the area, I did not install the screws to hold down the top. This made it easy to lift it to view my water level.

        Great Product!
        We purchased this brand after reading other reviews. The rain barrel thickness makes it very sturdy. The best I can describe it is equivalent to the large plastic garbage containers contractors use. The rain barrel came with tools and accessories necessary to install properly and with ease. I was able to install it in about 5 minutes per barrel. Also, our local water district currently has a $75 rebate for each barrel (max 4) so great incentive! We recently received two rain storms and were able to harvest approximately 200 gal of rain. It's so awesome to have this valuable resource for our yard. I highly recommend it if you are thinking of getting one.

        Totally met my expectations. Assembly was easy with all needed parts included, even the required hole saws. I have already used it to top off a small pond and water nearby garden. The barrel filled completely after a half inch rain.
