Questions & Answers

how do the plants on top get water?

how do the plants on top get water?
Asked by: bsagsa
If this is like another top planter water butt that I own, you have to water the plants yourself, top down. There is a small hole in the planter base, but I leave that plugged. Let me know what you decided to do, please!

Does it come with the divertor, or to you need to order this separately?

Asked by: Daisy
Yes, it comes with a diverter. There are many other diverters on the market, so I figured that if this one doesn't suit me, I'll go buy another. So far, this one seems to be doing the job, although I had my doubts at first.

I purchased this rain barrel a couple months ago. I like the look and functionality. I'm really concerned about the, flat back, bulging out soo much. The flexing of the plastic, back and forth, can't be good. The idea of having a, flat back, is to be able to place it against a wall, or fence, etc., it can't be placed this way with it bulging. According to your reviews, I'm not the only one with this problem. Can you please address this for me, or should I return for a refund? Hate to, but I will.
Asked by: Concerned
Yes, my barrel is doing the same thing. Didn't notice it until your email. I will probably just keep mine unless there's a recall. Thanks

RESCUE 50 Gal. Gray Flat Back Whiskey Rain Barrel with Integrated Planter and Diverter System with Black Accent Bands, Gray/Black is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 286.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Free water and it looks great! We thought about getting a rain diverter for years and finally came across this whiskey barrel with planter and included diverter system which was exactly what we wanted. The barrel is large and has a flat back, planter area on top with built in drain (to the outside of the barrel). The diverter system is very straightforward, just cut your downspout and insert the diverter and screw it in with the supplied screws.. Drill a hole on the side or rear of the barrel and insert the supplied supply hose. Make sure to install the diverter relatively level to the inlet hole you drill on the barrel. Too much of a down angle will not perform well. The product even comes with a very short outlet hose complete with a mini on/off valve. Since its a standard size hose you can extend it with a long hose as needed but remember that this system is gravity fed so don't expect to use an extremely long hose effectively. Product was a little pricey but well worth it in the end.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Curb Appeal, Collects water. Mount it up off ground Product was shipped in timely manner, well packaged and well constructed. I know it’s not rocket surgery but, follow the directions, as you want to make sure you measure and mount the down spout converter correctly, in right direction of water flow. Also, I highly recommend mounting this on top of landscaping bricks, or something else to get it off the ground to aid with water flowing from hose. Maybe this is a known requirement with rain barrels, this is my first so, didn’t think about it until after installation, too late now, down spout is already cut, don’t make the same mistake. The planter up top is a hit with the wife but, I think you miss out on a lot of water. If you place a rain barrel in front of the house, this might be more curb appealing. In the back yard, I’ll try the simple top feed barrels to collect more water.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from NOT QUITE WHAT I WANTED, BUT FUNCTIONAL This is our second rain barrel, our first was purchased through a fundraiser and has a Rain Reserve diverter system. We paid (a lot) less for this rain barrel. Pros: the flat back, so you can have it much closer to your house, the colored resin will last longer than the painted one we already have, the painted resin looks like wood until you get right next to it, the built-in flower planter, and the attachable hose to water with. Cons:the diverter system, which was much harder to install. The plastic tubing they give you is not at all flexible and kinks easily, it's hard to funnel from the downspout to the rain barrel and I'm not sure that it will collect water as well as the flexible hose that came with my other barrel. We hopefully solved the kinking issue by using a cut garden hose at both the intake and outtake attachments, with their tubing inserted into the hose. This might be a good barrel for first-timers. Not sure how well it will collect rainwater as it has not rained since we installed it.

A regular spigot might have been more appropriate than the shut-off valve and hose. We used two layers of cement blocks as the base to raise it enough to fill a watering can directly from the valve attached to the barrel. Of most concern is the lack of a lid or other opening to clean sediment out the bottom occasionally and allow for complete drying before winter storage.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not As Expected If this unit is "gray," then I'm... well, look - it's just not gray. What they call gray is brown. What they call brown is brown. I've returned it, reordered, and the markings couldn't be clearer, "Gray." But it's still brown. The diverter captures a very very small percentage of the water coming down the spout, and is quickly overwhelmed, especially in the real gulley-washer storms. And I'll be curious to see, after the rainy season, how much dirt, shingle grit and the like has collected at the bottom of this barrel. There's no screen or filter of any kind. Of course, how I'll "see" or clean that out has yet to be determined as the barrel is full enclosed and sealed, save for where the water enters. This plethora of design flaws makes me wonder how long this unit will last under the beating it will take from UV rays, but that's just speculation. The initial delivery and return were fast.

It seems to fill up just fine, but water seeps out the drilled hole where the water tube comes from the downspout even though I made sure it was level.It took some work, but not having mosquito access is worth it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from pretty good, with a few exceptions Overall, these are pretty nice rain barrels. They don't look nearly as much like real wood as the picture shows. No real variation in color. They are obviously resin, but attractive nonetheless. One thing to note for those of you considering purchase....the rain barrel is meant to be on the same side of your house as the downspout, and the diverter can only accommodate this configuration, as the holes for the tubing come directly off of the short side of the downspout. This caused a problem for me due to the configuration of my house. It still worked, but the hose had to be curved into a U shape, which is not as ideal for water flow. Consider your own particular layout before purchase.
