seems to be well made, until bottom cracked
I used this all summer. Held rain very well, stayed stable, no leaks. This winter I opened the faucet to drain out water, then after a hard freeze there was a big crack across the bottom which leaked like crazy. If Home Depot lets me exchange this for a new one I will update this review. There was only a little water in the bottom. That should not crack plastic.

        Good quality, slow to receive and tap is too high
        I like the simple design of this rain barrel and you can’t tell but the logo is just a sticker that peels off so it’s just a black barrel. It was easy to install, after we FINALLY got it... received it 1.5 months after ordering, which only frustrates me because it was “marked as shipped” for a month before it actually left the warehouse. I was charged as soon as it was marked as shipped. I confirmed this was the suppliers issue and not that UPS took forever to pick it up. The other downside to this barrel is that the predrilled spot for the tap is a foot off the ground. This is handy in that a watering can fits easily under to fill it, however that section of water can and will never be drained or used, so the capacity of the barrel is actually much less in terms of what can be used.

        A very solid rain barrel and spigot. It was easy to put together and is working as intended. We've had for about one month and would recommend this to everyone.

        The rain barrel itself is nice but it has been leaking water. We have tried sealant spray, sealant tape, and sealant paste but it has still leaked all over our shed and we have had to put a bucket underneath the area it’s leaking. My husband and I were disappointed. We were excited about this new rain barrel :(

          Meh
          Quality seems decent but it's ugly and mine came with a poorly attached logo label (big ugly label that is crooked and bubbling). I'd remove the label, but no way it's coming off in one piece. It came out of the box looking like the attached photo. Contacted the company and no response. Whatever, it's a rain barrel, you'd think the company would at least have the courtesy to respond.

            I have purchased this product and it has worked as intended. I like the slanted top and the screened opening. I had the gutter drain designed so that it goes directly to the opening. The overflow pipe works as designed. The one disappointment is that, for some unknown reason, only one rubber washer is sent for the spigot. Your barrel will leak if you do not have two washers - one for the inside and one for the outside. This can be taken care of by going out and purchasing one. I did elevate my barrel by putting landscaping tiles underneath so a bucket can fit underneath the spigot. I plan on ordering another barrel like this.

              Great product We did remove temporarily the brass nozzle to have something larger to let the water out faster. Both work nicely and this product is reasonably priced and shipped quickly! We have had it one month and it has exceeded or expectaions.

              Barrel Cracked
              We noticed the barrel was cracked along the entire bottom at 1 year 6 months. No idea when it actually happened, but it was out of warranty. It looks like it cracked across the gate where it was injection molded, maybe that’s a weak point?

                Nice design, very practical. Debris filter is effective. The removable cover makes it possible to take bucketful of water directly from the barrel, making the watering process much quicker. If the spigot is 3/4 inch instead of 1/2 inch, it would be even better. A 3/4 inch spigot would make filling up a watering can quicker.

                It's not worth what you paid for! See picture after a couple of years sitting around and trying to barely collect rain 3x a year. It has two big cracks at the bottom of the barrel. Contacted Co and he was nice over the phone to ask me to email him pictures. Then I got a response back saying it's only warranty for 1 year! He made me go through the whole trouble of taking the pictures and emailed him. Not only is the company unethical in dealing with business but the product is NOT durable!

                  I like the design and the look of this rain barrel. I made a permanent structure to incorporate this barrel as a part of my garden design in 2015 (see attached picture). With the short height and a large lid, I can get quick access to the water on the top with my 1 gallon jug and it also easy for me to clean out the inside of the barrel when needed. However, the wall is very thin. You can even see the outside light when looking out from the inside of the barrel. You will definitely need to drain and store the unit in the garage or the basement before the first frost. See the barrel damage in the first picture when I forgot to empty the unit before the first frost. I replaced this unit twice (one in 2016 and one in 2017) already.

                  Love it!! I was pleased when I received this rain barrel because it is better than I expected. The barrel itself is made of durable heavy gauge, UV-stabilized plastic. The inside bottom is reinforced from ribs formed during the molding process which enables it to withstand the weight of the water when the barrel is full. It is easily set up and the directions are clear. I bought this rain barrel instead of one that I could purchase at a huge discount from my city's water board because it came with a brass spigot which will not be prone to breakage as well as it held 5 more gallons of water. The screen on top which is sturdier than I expected is trapping oak tree debris including leaves, acorns, and small particles. I like that they are square so that when I buy more the flat surfaces will be easier to deal with. Because my new gutters were put up after I set it up, I didn't have to mess with cutting the downspout. even before it rains and I am able to clean it off easily. The dual overflow connections permit interconnection of multiple barrels is a plus. I like that the spigot is higher up. With it on the platform that I made, I can easily drain water into 5 gallon buckets and/or watering cans. In addition, the lid being removable for cleaning and inspection of the barrel is a handy feature. The overflow hose was not long enough for my purposes so after much research, I bought online a Nelson Plastics 1-1/4 in. x 24 ft. Sump Pump Hose Kit ($12.57 from Home Depot) which fits perfectly into the overflow hose. I am able to cut this off to suit my needs and save the rest for a future project. This rain barrel along with several more that I intend to buy (just bought another one online) will help solve an erosion issue in my yard as well as place the water where I need it. Living in San Antonio, TX, I need to save water due to rains being few and far between at times. I have a lot of plants in containers so the saved rain water will come in handy, save on my water bills as well as provide water that has no chemicals in it. So far it hasn't rained since I set it up so I am unable to judge whether it leaks nor whether the faucet works well. See photos of how I set reinforced the base I constructed and how I placed it on cinder blocks with cinder block covers. I had to sure that it would stay level and that the red pavers would not sink into the ground. It will weigh quite a bit when full so I had to re-level and reinforce a flowerbed which is on a slant where I placed it. It took some planning to be sure that it will be secure and that I will be able to place a 5 gallon bucket below the brass faucet when I want to extract some water. I also needed an extension to be placed on the overflow hose as well as an end flute. As stated before, I used a sump pump hose. Because the gutter draining into it is 32 feet long, I will be able to daisy chain the next one that I just ordered to this one; however, it will be at a lower level. If need be, I can place more cinder blocks under this one to increase the gravity flow.

                    I bought two of these a couple weeks ago. Very easy to set up and they work great. The lid with the integrated filter screen is a nice feature. I purchased this unit because the lid was removable for cleaning and inspection of the barrel. I wish the flow rate from the supplied spigot was better.

                    We have had our rain barrel about a month. The rain barrel is easy to assemble. The hardest part is cutting and refitting the downspout to fit. The barrel fills suprisingly quickly even in a sprinkle type rain which is a big plus. One thing we had to do was add a rock to the inside of the barrel to keep it in place when empty since we have a lot of wind here. Don't know why the spigot is so high up on the barrel, if it is to allow container filling or something else? We placed our rain barrel on concrete blocks to insure that we can get a 5 gallon bucket under the spigot.

                    It held a lot of water from one rainy day without any leaks. I've also used the spout and again no problems with leaks or anything. The one design flaw is that the spout is a little too high up on the barrel. A lot of water gets unused because of this. I suppose you could tilt the barrel to get the water out when the level is below the spout but I don't want to run the risk of scrapping up and cracking the bottom. Over all though I really like it.

                    This barrel is stylish and durable! I this got barrel to water my raised bed and potted gardens. I am going green with this addition! The brass spigot is great and has no leaks. I will eventually add another in my back yard and a 3rd to the front gutter to have continuous free water for my plants. If you need a durable stylish barrel choose this easy installer.

                    Excellent rain barrel and looks good when you remove the decal. I've had one for 2 years and had no problems. I really solved two problems for me. One, I had water for plants in much of the dry Texas summer. Two, it resolved a roof water runoff problem since I can direct the excess water to a need place rather than the walkway by my house.

                      Good value and greater capacity than many similar products. Brass spigot is high quality. Dual overflow connections permit interconnection of multiple barrels for extra capacity. It would be helpful for the spigot to be lower so more water can be drained.

                      I've investigated and owned several different types of rain barrels in the past and this one is the best.
                      Several suggestions, improve the quality of the rubber washer for the brass hrdrant. Also either lower the hole for the hydrant or put in a drain hole at the bottom of the barrel. I really like the overflow feature because I linked four barrels together and placed them at different heights which allowed me to siphon water from the higher barrels to the lower barrels using the hydrants. Regarding the hydrants if it was possible to put a siphon tube on these there would be no need to lower them.

                      Great Rain Barrel
                      I purchased my first FreeGarden Rain Barrel in Jan 2016. I was so pleased with the quality (which should last for years) and ease of installation that I purchased four more barrels in March. The first barrel did not have the graphic as shown which I prefer since it is most visible to the street. The others are in the rear yard or behind landscaping so the graphic is fine. I particularly like the sturdy mesh that deters mosquito breeding and the fact that I can remove the lid that is secured in place with a few small screws. The first barrel was purchased as a way to redirect larger amounts of rain as the rear patio floods and is left with a dirty mess. Now we can hook up a hose, open the spigot and the water goes to the front of our property. The water saved in the other barrels will be used in the garden. Best of all, I was able to take advantage of the local water barrel rebates which made this purchase VERY affordable, plus the free and fast delivery. This is definitely a WINNER!
