Product Overview

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

Has this rainbarrel been re-designed to strengthen the back so the back doesnt bow out when full,...

Asked by rayacolorado September 1, 2020

I had 4 of these rain barrels and used them for about 2 years before moving. I did not have any issues with the backs blowing out. I lived in central WI so they were not exposed to excessive heat. I would drain them in the fall when the temps started to drop below freezing. My only issue was the supplied hose would start to leak a little so to save my water I had to secure them in an upright position when not in use.

We drilled mine so it runs into the top where they show the plants. Then drilled drainage holes in that part, put a screen in and river rocks. The rocks cover the tube.

I have not experienced the problem you describe. My neighbor has not either. Could your water barrel be defective? i. e. the materials. A slight freeze will not freeze an entire barrel of water and then distort the shape. The barrel is subtle and adds to my landscaping. I would call the manager of your store, or write a letter to their corporate office. Get an exchange. The barrel was a healthy financial investment. I hope this helps. Home Depot has been very cooperative with my concerns over the years.

Drill a hole with a spade bit in the desired location where rain chain will descend. Use a reciprocating saw to make larger hole if needed

Somewhat Dissappointed
Rain barrel works as stated. Nice look, exactly what we wanted. After hooked up and a nice steady rain, barrel filled half way and no longer sits flush to the wall. Dissappointed to see as I would have bought the round one cheeper. At least the round one is supposed to be round!!

We purchased this water barrel less than 2 years ago. Used it for 2 summers. Love the look, and seemed to work well besides the fact the backside bulged when full from the weight of the water. Also, last year the end of the hose starting leaking, so we had to replace. Recently my husband noticed water was leaking near our house. Upon further investigation, the bottom side is cracked...so disappointing, and the plastic on the bottom is so thin. Not thick enough to hold the weight of a full 50 gallons which we fill easily after a pouring rain. Now we have to figure out which one to replace it with :(

Easy to install. Hacksaw and a drill. Go ahead and get a stand and order a spigot - so you can access the collected water. Also, don’t plan on planting anything on top. Too shallow.

Installation was easy, fits nicely into my garden space. 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.

After reading instructions I installed the barrel. 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.

I live in Colorado at 7000ft. My normal weather includes extremely high UV exposure, wide temperature swings, and high winds. I have had the 85 gallon version of this rain barrel for 3 years and am very satisfied with it (it still looks and works the same as the day I installed it), so I decided to try the smaller one for my front yard. This one is made of the same textured plastic and I really like the large, integrated planter. The hose fittings are plastic, so I replaced them with brass for durability. I have had the 50 gallon barrel installed for about 3 weeks, and we got a big rain recently that filled it completely. The flat back has bowed out so much that it has pushed the barrel away from the wall of my house by about 4 inches! I seems some kind of internal reinforcement is necessary from the manufacturer. Unfortunately now that it's installed (and full!), I am reluctant to return it. In summary, the aesthetics of this rain barrel are great, but it needs to be made of heavier plastic or have some kind of reinforcement on the flat back to keep it's shape.
