Product Overview

  • Enclosed System keeps out Mosquitoes and other harmful Pests
  • Diverter System causes water to flow into Barrel when its empty
  • Diverter redirects water to downspout when the Barrel is full
The Emsco Group RESCUE 50 Gal. Earth Brown Rain Water Urn features an integrated planter and an easy-to-install, patented downspout diverter kit which fits 2 in. x 3 in. standard or 3 in. x 4 in. high capacity downspouts. The downspout diverter will automatically keep your rain barrel full when rain has fallen and bypass the rain barrel when full preventing overfilling and overflowing which can cause flooding. This rain barrel kit collects rainwater to be both environmentally-friendly and money-saving by helping reduce your dependence on municipal or well water. In addition, your plants will thrive using pure, soft rain water instead of the processed water from your tap which can contain elements harmful to your plants. An added feature about the diverter system is that it does not have to be removed during the winter season. The diverter and rain barrel can be by-passed so that water flows through the downspout as usual, keeping water from getting into the rain barrel and freezing. The integrated planter can be planted directly into or a pre-arranged floral basket can be used to adorn the top of the rain barrel. The planter area includes a weep hole, allowing excess water to drain out preventing plant stress or death due to over-watering and root rot.
  • Environmentally-friendly decorative water urn collects rain from your downspout to reduce your need for municipal or well water, helping you save money
  • Made from UV-stable, engineered resin for durability with the look of brown earth
  • Built-in large planter has weep holes to help prevent over watering and root rot
  • Kit includes our patented dual downspout diverter, a 36 in. connection hose, connection grommets, a barb plug, a 48 in. main outlet hose with on/off ball cock valve, 2 hose gaskets and an illustrated installation guide
  • Diverter system automatically redirects water down the downspout when the urn is full
  • Easy-to-install downspout diverter kit fits 2 in. x 3 in. standard or 3 in. x 4 in. high capacity downspouts
  • Linkable in groups of two or more
  • Holds up to 50 Gal. of rainwater
  • Can be connected to a soaker hose for convenient automatic watering of nearby plants/gardens
  • Rainwater is ideal for watering plants and gardens, rainwater is at ambient temperatures which plant enjoy and it contains no chlorine or other chemicals
  • Back of rain barrel is flat to sit closely to side of house or building for a low profile and attractive appearance

Questions & Answers

does it come with a spigit?

Asked by: McWeth
It comes with a short hose and an on-off valve which you could put on the barrel or the end of the hose.

Does the "Diverter Kit" work? Looks like a lot of water will still go through the middle hole of the Diverter.

The instructions don't mention how the water normally flows through the downspout.
Asked by: JE66213
It works, but not well. I would estimate that about 25% of the water coming down the spout gets diverted into the barrel - the rest continues down the downspout. The tube that comes off of the diverter is so small that only a small amount of water can flow into the barrel at a time.

Is the area where you connect the hose brass or plastic?

Asked by: Sheri
It is plastic, and after six months, the connection is leaking. Tightening doesn't work, and I think the problem is in the end of the small hose that comes with the unit. It is some kind of yellow metal, I don't think it is brass. I think it is cracked, but I can't find out until the barrel is empty. Unfortunately I am losing precious Southern California rainwater.

Is the top of the rain barrel removeable for access to interior? Can we view the manual?

Asked by: Timothy
The top is not able to be removed, there is no access to the interior other then the hole you make for the diverter tube and the threaded drain at the base. I was hoping the top would be able to be taken off to be cleaned or in case of debris but have not had an issue yet

50 Gal. Earth Brown Water Urn Flat-Back Rain Barrel with Integrated Planter and Diverter Kit is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 266.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Tip for setting up. I suggest putting the connector hose into the water diverted before attaching the water diverted. I bought 2. The first one I had the rubber in the opening break when putting it in. The company sent me a replacement in days. The second one, I put the hose in first and set up went fast. Urn filled up with first rain.

I was very excited to purchase my first rain barrel and I thought this would be any easy install. However, that wasn't entirely true. It is a very nice rain barrel, and I am wondering how it will do this winter, but I was not fully prepared for the installation. It would be helpful when purchasing online if it included a list of items needed before installation, like a specific size drill bit or a filter for the top of the gutter to keep the leaves out (yes, I realize NOW that it seems logical). It is nice that you get to pick where the intake goes and I can't wait to put a plant in the planter in the spring.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Ok Looks very nice. But that's the only good thing. Diverter is cheap, there was no hole in the back of the barrel for the hose. I had to drill a hole and also a vent hole because the diverter backed up with no ventilation. Now that its full the back is bulging and pushing against the house. Buy a trashcan and save yourself money

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Pretty but not practical The container is nice and looked good with my landscaping. It took some time to figure out the measurements to drill the hole. My main problem was that the water diversion system didn't not work. Immediately after installation it started to rain and it was obvious that the water was going all over the place but the barrel.

My husband installed it in about 30 minutes following the directions provided. Great quality and we especially like that it is completely sealed against mosquitoes. After our first rain storm we have a full barrel and are using it daily.

First time it rained though, the back of the urn bowed out, it was bulging on the back side once it filled with water. I have contacted the company directly and emailed pictures to them and am waiting for a reply.

Hardest part was cutting down the downspout! Everything is leveled and the tube is a straight line from the downspout to the barrel yet I get an air bubble in the tube and therefor the water doesn't go into the barrel.
