About This Product

In production for over 25-years Rain Catcher rain barrels are the gold standard for rain water collection with over 375,000 barrels in use across North America. Designed to mimic a traditional wooden barrel the Rain Catcher line of rain barrels have many modern features not found in a basic barrel. The large opening and flat back design allow for easy installation and placement of the downspout while the spoke and wheel pattern in the top of the barrel keeps it child and pet safe. The overflow connection at the back of the barrel allows excess water to flow down and underneath the barrel to direct it away from foundations. Spigots on the side of the barrel allow you to connect multiple Rain Catcher barrels in-series for easy expansion of your rain water storage capacity. The aluminum mesh screen keeps out debris to keep the water clear. Place them around your home to catch fresh chlorine-free water as it pours from your downspouts - Water that would otherwise make its way into storm sewers only to be wasted. Rain barrels not only save you money but lessen the strain on water resources. The barrels are constructed of recycled, UV inhibited, BPA free polyethylene. 50 gallon capacity Includes debris screen, garden hose, shut-off thumb valve, hanging hose clip, overflow hose and linking kit for connecting other RC4000 rain barrels.

      Q:Can we buy another cover with screen for this model? My husband forgot to secure the original cover on the barrel upon transporting it on the back of the truck and it flew off. We looked for it but no luck. Thank you for your help with this. Cindy

        Q:Does this have to be emptied in the winter to prevent the water freezing and bursting the barrel?
        by|Jun 30, 2023

        Answer This Question

        A:  Unless you have winter without precipitation,  you’re going to accumulate moisture and the barrel never completely empties from the hose. I store the hose and screen in the garage and turn the barrel upside down and put a weight on it in case of heavy wind. Then I reconnect my original downspout.

              Leaky
              I paid a little extra thinking this is a clever design. But it is a poor design and poorly made. When the barrel is full, it leaks badly at both side-to-side connection pipes, where you would connect multiple barrels together. Water leaks from a hole at the top front of the barrel where the hose clip mounts. The hose connection at the bottom of the barrel is recessed and inaccessible when the barrel is full. I found that I had not tightened the hose clamp enough and water was leaking. But I was unable to tighten the clamp because it is inaccessible. I had to drain the barrel to tighten this clamp. This is a poor design. I wish I had bought a barrel with a hose-faucet type valve at the bottom such as the RTS brand 551000300A8081.

                Works well
                [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This rain barrel is large. It collects rainwater efficiently and I love the mesh top so other debris does not enter. It is a good neutral color and the spout at the bottom is easy to use.

                  Make life easier!
                  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Hands down, this has made things easier on our mini farm! I had looked into rain barrels ,but was never sure on the actual reliable functionality of them. I will say this one is great. It comes with all the hardware, and is very durable. The only con I do see is the hose needs to be longer,but you can extend it yourself.

                    BPA Free great Barrel
                    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I love this FCMP Outdoor 50-Gallon Home Rain Water Catcher Barrel, is BPA free. As most of us that use a rain barrel to catch rain water to reuse to water our garden or put the water in our pond things like that. The last thing you want is BPA in your garden so I absolutely love this barrel. It's got a nice size of 50 gallons a screen to keep out bugs, leaves and debris. It does have a good weight to it so mine hasn't had any wind problems however I live in a dip so I don't have much trouble with the wind. The hose it comes with does pour pretty slow but I don't really mind. You do need to make sure you get everything tight I recommend lubricant when putting it together the first time to get it tight. I definitely love the look of my barrel it looks nice in my yard. It does smell funny when you take it out of the box, it needs to air out.

                      Extra durable.
                      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This rain barrel comes with the barrel, a hose, hose clips, shutoff valve, overflow hose and a debris screen. The barrel holds 50 gallons of rain and is made of extra durable plastic. The back of the barrel is flat so it conveniently sits flat against the side of the house. The screen is perfect to keep out all the leaves and other debris that may blow around. This was so easy to install and set up to begin collecting the rainwater that I use to water my plants and other outdoor tasks without using our local water.

                        All parts and pieces came just as it should. Super easy to put together. Looks just like I wanted. Hardest part for me was cutting the gutter - the rain barrel itself was no problem and the instructions are easy to follow too. I now have 50+ gallons of feee rain water for flowers and garden!

                          So bummed about the quality
                          I searched for a while on the best barrels to buy. These seemed sturdy and durable! But after two (very mild) rains, I can see clear as day a few holes in the product (we literally just got them, so not due to wear/tear, but clearly a manufacturing defect!). We can see drips coming out the handles. There is also a very noticeable hole near the top on the side of one, where water just constantly streams out! Not drip, but an actual stream. So bummed. Can't rate these very high since their only purpose is to store water securely, and they clearly can't do that.

                            So bummed about this. I spent a lot of time researching the best barrels to go with and these seemed like a solid choice. Well, two very mild rains in, and I can see very clear areas of leakage. There is a hole in one of the handles which drips constantly, and another hole out of the side near the top where water just sprays out (not a drip, but actual running water!). Can't rate this very highly, as it's only job is to hold water in securely, and it's failing.

                              Nice product. The initial quality looks good. I'm curious to see how it stands up to the New Mexico weather. Initial quality looks very good.
