Awesome Rain Barrel
Wanted a rain barrel with a flat back and more of a rustic look to it. Love the added spot for plants on top. Make sure you buy or build a platform in order to get it off the ground so gravity can help with water pressure. Ours is about 10-12" above the ground and never had an issue with pressure filling up water cans. We have black gutters so we also purchased a separate black diverter kit with a clean out.

    Love this product! Most of the work I put in for this project was making the level ground to install this on. It rained .4 inch yesterday and the barrel is full!! Already used 6 gallons of it for my veggie patch :-) Plan to plant some flowers on it.

    Looks very nice, but I have a few issues. As others noted, the flat back bulges when it fills up. Not a bg deal, except it might be an issue if placing it against a wall. When my barrel is full the hose port at the bottom appears to have a slow leak....it looks like it is where the port mates to the barrel, rather than where the hose screws to the port. Finally, the diverted has a limited capacity. The first two rains after installing the barrel were downpours, and the diverted was overflowing. This cause some flooding on the ground behind my barrel. It would be nice to have a higher volume diverted that can handle the full capacity of my 2”x3” downspout

      Good barrel but not without flaws
      My wife picked the barrel; and I had to install it. Overall we love the look of the barrel , so much that we got two of them. My wife picked it over others because it would go better with our house; which has cedar siding. The barrel is not without three flaws, which may or may not be deal breakers. First off, the diverter kit wouldn’t work with our gutters because it requires you to remove your gutter from the downspout bracket. Because our gutters are riveted to its brackets, this is pretty much impossible without a lot of work. So tossed the converter kit and got a converter kit from EarthMinded LLC. This kit is much simpler to install; just one cut with a hole saw (which is included) and your done. As compared to two cuts and removing and re-installing your gutter. Second flaw it the hardware. This is the only barrel that didn’t come with a spigot; it just came with a hose and shutoff valve. I added a spigot so I can easily use a watering can. Third flaw, and maybe the worst flaw, is that when the barrel is filled with water the back of the barrel bulges. My water barrels are not much more then half full and they both have bulges. Will see how big the bulges get when completely filled. It’s an ok barrel; but it probably works best if it sits right against your house so the back of the barrel won’t bulge. For cedar siding this isn’t an option since I want the siding to breath. If I had brick, this wouldn’t be a problem. The stiff plastic hose of the supplied converter kit works best if the barrel is right next to the rain gutter. Because my barrel sits a bit off of the house, my converter hose has to be shaped more like an ‘S’; which is harder to do with stiff plastic. As a general note, it’s always best to elevate your barrel. This improves the water flow out of the barrel. So, unless can’t do without the looks of this barrel, you might be better off with a barrel from EarthMinded; simply because of the converter kit.

        Works fine for now but it immediately formed a large bulge on the back side when it filled for the first time. Not sure how long it will hold the water as that adds stress to the barrel.

        So far the barrel doesn't leak water at the bottom faucet. My only comment will be that the top when it rains it keeps water and the hole on the back is too small for the water to be released. But other than that I can recommend the barrel for the purpose it was designed to.

        Installed two, one on ground level atop flat pavers, one on a raised platform of large brick pavers. Both work flawlessly, add an element of height to my garden as well. They were very easy to install, and have already begun saving me money on my water bill. I would NOT recommend you get the Platforms that are suggested to be purchased with the unit, as the Platforms are pre-fabricated and do not fit the barrel correctly, and there is not way to make them fit and keep it level.

          Barrel was easy to install, looks great and has already begun saving me money. I also ordered the recommended Barrel Platform, which did not fit the Barrel at all, and was thereby completely unusable. Promptly returned the stand to the store.
