Product Overview

  • Enclosed System keeps out Mosquitoes and other harmful Pests
  • Diverter System causes water to flow into Barrel when its empty
  • Diverter redirects water to downspout when the Barrel is full
The Emsco Group RESCUE 60 Gal. Sandstone Rain Water Urn with Planter 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 sandstone
  • 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
  • Holds up to 60 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

Questions & Answers

Just want to confirm this 60 gallon is completely round and not with a flat back? I'm looking to make water feature w/it

Asked by: Dan

Our downspouts are 4 1/2 x 3 inches, not 3 x 2 inches. Can the diverter accommodate the larger downspout?

Asked by: SkyToucher
Yes the diverter is double ended. One end accepts 4 1/2 x 3 and the other end is 3x2.

In a heavy rain water is gushing out where the diverter is attached to the cut downspout. Is there a fix for this problem

Asked by: Kat
You might have some blockage in the diverter. Would recommend installing a mesh or debris catcher at the top of the down sprout. If not the case, then the amount of rain is exceeding the ability of the diverter's drain hole. Therefore the diverter would safely overflow.

We were lucky in the fact that we were having gutters installed when we purchased the barrel and the installer was able to insert the diverter in the downspout for us. Does a great job catching the rain, I have plenty to water my plants. Also, enjoy being able to plant flowers in the top.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very attractive and straight-foreward setup We bought two barrels with free shipping and they arrived quickly. The biggest part of installation was building sturdy bases for them; for one I used paver blocks that matched our front flower bed area and for the other I used bricks left over from old projects. The instructions for installing the urns were pretty good, but didn't explain that the loose grommet in the package was to go in the hole I drilled in the urn for the fill tube. We had a 1/4 inch rainfall right after I installed the first urn and it filled the entire barrel. Looking forward to using these to water vegetables and flowers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Functional and Decorative As Well It's been a week since we installed our water urn and we couldn't be happier. Installation was relatively easy. It looks great on my patio. My gardener liked it a lot but didn't realize it was a rain barrel until I told him. We used two rows of decorative wall blocks to raise the urn about 8” inches. I believe it improves the water pressure coming out of the bottom hose. I also fashioned a hose hook using a wire hanger. The reason I gave it 4 stars is because we had to apply additional silicone around the hose bib. We had the foresight of testing it to check for leaks before allowing the barrel to fill up completely. Now it's working just fine. Overall, it’s well made and the terra cotta color is very realistic as you can see in the picture. Highly recommended. Besides, I knew that if I needed to return it, I could take it back to the local store. Something to think about when ordering something this big!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall Very Nice I purchased this for the front of my house, and it looks very nice. Has a nice texture to the plastic so it doesnt look like a typical rain barrel. The flower pot on the top is a nice feature to help it blend in. I have only had it installed for about a month now, but so far the hose and nozzle to disperse water has been great. It is super easy to fill a watering can to water plants! The installation wasn't too difficult either. I was skeptical of the diverter, but it works very nicely and provides an alternative when the rain barrel fills. Overall, I am very pleased and would purchase this barrel again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Rain Barrel System I ordered two of the 85 gallon versions of this rain barrel. We installed them last week and I was impressed by its looks and durability. It's made of very thick pvc type plastic and was surprisingly light weight so it was easy to move around. Installation was easy. You have to cut some gutter down-spout out to make room for the rain diverter and you have to cut a one inch hole in the barrel for the in-flow line. I used a sawsall for the spout and a 1" hole saw. The barrel looks like a large clay vessel. We had our first rain in a while two days ago and I was shocked to find both barrels completely full after a moderate overnight rain. The gutter down-spout valve is a brilliant design with no moving parts. Just a "dam" that catches water and diverts it to the barrel. When full the water overflows the "dam" and goes down the down-spout. I'm not a "greenie" but I really like capturing the roof runoff to water our gardens. My local Home Depot didn't have these in stock so we ordered them online and got free shipping since the total was above $200. I highly recommend this line of rain barrels.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from good for the money The product arrived quickly, earlier than expected. The instructions included with the items are pretty bad. They list a few simple things that you will need for installation. BUT don't mention that you need an electric drill with a 1" drill bit sufficient to drill through the "stunning terra cotta hand cast pottery appearance". and that you also need a hacksaw to saw through your downspout to fit the "downspout diverter kit that fits any 2 in. X 3 in." But, after doing that, everything was pretty easy to install. The only complaint is that there is no porthole, or something to look to see how full the barrel is. The "built in weepholeS" in the planter is really just ONE "built in weephole" and it's small. I say it's good for the money because when you are shopping for a rain collection barrel, you are theoretically trying to be economically efficient in collecting rain for irrigation, but also somewhat of a conservationist and you want something attractive in your yard. So, it seems stupid to spend more money than you will ever save on water to buy a rain barrel over $200 or $250? Therefore, this rain barrel is a good, solid value for your dollar. Does what it's supposed to, attractive, good cost, and relatively easy to install...........if you have a drill, 1" drill bit, and a hacksaw

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of lots of money I bought three last summer (2014). All three have split the seams!!! What a wate of money! They now hold less than 20 gals because of the seams that split. These are not one solid piece, and they cannot hold the weight of the water you put in them Why have a 60 gal barrel that cannot hold up to the weight of 60 gal of water?
