leaking at seam after 10 months from purchase
I'd like to get my money back, but HD policy does not cover past 90 days. This piece of garbage is now leaking at the weld seam mid line. Don't buy.

great purchase
It was easy to install and the rain barrel looks great. I like that no bugs can get in and algae will not grow in there.

Good, basic rain barrel!
I was looking for something that wouldn't look too garish or an obvious imitation of something it wasn't. This unit came with a great price, with a simple design and a nice, compact size (squat enough to actually fit underneath my raised home), yet with a good capacity. I installed two in series. My only (minor) gripes: the downspout adapter is white and rectangular...I have dark bronze, round downspouts, so I had to buy another adapter. But I knew that going in. And the spigots are pretty low-flowing. I suspect I'll replace them with a higher-flow valve. All-in-all, I'm quite pleased!

I returned it. I did not like that it...
I returned it. I did not like that it was a contained unit with no lid. If anything got clogged it would be difficult to clean. I also did not like that the hole for the kit was not predrilled. I was afraid of breaking it and not being able to return it.

Three calls later, I am still waiting for the diverter...
Three calls later, I am still waiting for the diverter system, etc to arrive (the only thing in the box was the collector). I think if/when the missing parts get here it will be ok, but cannot sat for sure til then.

rain barrel
It wasn't what I expected. There was no opening in the top for the water to enter. To much required to set it up.

Wicker rain collector
I purchased this product to use as a catch basin for my daughters in home hair salon. Its lower design and wicker look make it visually appealing and does exactly what was required...it drains to a floor drain.Perfect for the application
