Product Overview

The Emsco Group RESCUE 50 Gal. Terra Cotta Flat-back Rain Barrel features integrated planter and an easy-to-install, patented downspout diverter kit. The diverter kit fits 2 in. x 3 in. standard or 3 in. x 4 in. high capacity downspouts. The downspout diverter will route water to the rain barrel when raining and bypass the rain barrel when full. This rain barrel kit collects rainwater to be both environmentally-friendly and cost effective by reducing your dependence on municipal or well water. The diverter system does not have to be removed during the winter season and 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 into directly or a pre-arranged floral basket can be used to adorn the top of the rain barrel.
  • Environmentally-friendly decorative rain barrel 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 terra cotta
  • 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 barrel is full
  • Easy-to-install downspout diverter kit fits 2 in. x 3 in. standard or 3 in. x 4 in. high capacity downspouts

does it come with a spigit?

Asked by McWeth June 14, 2015

Answers

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

Can the hose attachment be replaced with a spigot? How steady is this? It looks like it could be top heavy & tip easy.

Asked by Interestedbuyer May 19, 2018

Answers

Yes. You could replace with a spigot with no problem. It is also very steady no matter how much water is in the barrel. It is not top heavy.

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

Asked by Sheri July 21, 2015

Answers

Plastic, mine got broken off after a few years, so I found a brass spigot kit online and replaced it. 100% better, also the flat back cracked and pushed the barrel away from the wall causing the fill hose to break. Called Cust Support and they sent a new hose, told me if the crack leaked let them know? Great EMSCO C/S so far.

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

Asked by JE66213 May 13, 2016

Answers

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

No, the top is not removeable.

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

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.

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.

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.
