Product Overview

The Emsco Group RESCUE 60 Gal. Basket Weave 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 a basket weave
  • 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

Anyone have a picture of the top of the barrel?

Asked by Starreyedmama July 15, 2019

Answers

What is the diameter of the base?

Asked by Ryan January 11, 2019
1
Answer

It's 16 inches at the base and top expanding to about 22 inches in the middle. I've elevated my three rain barrels like in the picture with three 16X16 concrete squares to gain a little elevation for moving the water collected to an area about 50 feet from this barrel. The built in flower pot (not removable) works well provided you place a few stones near the drain to prevent the soil from washing out.

How to repair the. Otter m when it had split and has a leak can’t gather water?

Asked by John July 8, 2018
1
Answer

Possibly some PVC primer and then PVC cement in that area. It won't just hold with that and I'd suggest using or creating some sort of support strap or belt around that area to keep the unit from splitting again after you've sealed the unit with the PVC cement.

is the integrated planter self-watered by the storage tank, or do you have to water the plants separately?

Asked by lisadallas July 15, 2016

Answers

You have to water the plant separately and there is a drainage hole on the side.

Is there a way to open the rain barrel to clean inside it?

Asked by JennyV July 9, 2016
5
Answers

Not that I can see. Looks like it's molded and assembled as a solid unit. Suggestion maybe remove the bottom drain and try flooding the unit from the input on top to try to flush it out. Perhaps a bleach solution if there is any mold growth?

does this have a flat back?

Asked by Freddy June 27, 2016

Answers

No. It does not have a flat back

Can this be used with a rain chain?

Asked by JChastain April 17, 2016
2
Answers

Since you have to drill the hole for the diverter hose you could put it in the top where the planter would go and maybe take the chain down to it. There is a drainage hole on the side of the planter area that would have to be plugged probably. I guess it would just overflow at the top when it’s full though since it can’t go back down the gutter plus having that open hole could allow mosquitos in.

Does the diverter fits with 2 in. x 3 3/4 in. downspouts ?

Asked by Irivng January 25, 2016

Answers

Yes That is how I have it installed.

Is this rain barrel BPA free?

Asked by Curious September 22, 2015
1
Answer

This barrel is not guaranteed to be BPA-free.

Can this rain barrel be connected to a second one when it becomes full?

Asked by Eileen September 8, 2015
3
Answers

I’m not an expert but looking at mine, I think you could connect them with another hose at the top. I would have the second barrel a little lower so the hose will be downward some. Then when the 1st is full it just overflows into the hose connected to the second barrel.

I love our new rain barrel. It was easy to install. We just had to cut our gutter and drill one hole in the barrel. There have been no leaks at the diverter hose or spigot at bottom. I may buy a different spigot. I didn’t want to use the hose. My husband built me a stand for it so I could get my watering pitcher under it . I love that I found something that matches my containers that hold my outdoor furniture cushions! This was a great purchase. I have indoor plants that I love and outdoor plants on our deck to water and this will help the water bill!

Let it Rain, Best Choice
The rain barrel is very nice, looks great on our patio. I put it up high on cinder blocks to give it more water pressure, and added a Dual valve at the bottom so I can leave the longer hose connected and have a spigot if needed, or add a second hose. It took me less than an hour to set it up, but I'm a handyman, it'll take you more. I recommend this product, I got it on sale for under $100 and but well worth it if you pay more.

It would have been nice if the instructions noted that the barrel needs to be raised off the ground. It's full of water but not enough downslope to get water from the hose. Will attempt to use a water transfer pump next week.

The barrel came without the diverter kit. I tried to call Home Depot multiple times and got nowhere with them on how to get the diverter kit sent. I even tried to email the manufacturer and received no respond from them. Just terrible customer service all around. The barrel is not even that great. It does not look like the one on the website especially at the area where the bottom hose attaches. It looked like it is glued in and I am not sure if this is going to last for a long time.

It’s nice but doesn’t hold enough water for my needs , you have to drill your own holes in the barrel where it should come pre drilled as you pay a lot for this item. I do like the item but I don’t understand the high price?

I bought one of these rain barrels a couple of years ago and have received many compliments on it. I bought another one this year for the back yard. Very stylish and functions well!
