How fine is the mesh? My roof sheds grit. Wondering if it will go through the mesh.

Asked by Alexvh11 April 16, 2021

Answers

The mesh is basically a mini window screen just like for a house window. (see photo) So check out one of your own home's window screens for mesh size. Very fine grit may get through, but that will settle on the bottom of the barrel. NOTE: The barrel's drain spout is about 2" from the bottom of the barrel, so any micro debris will settle at the bottom along with about an 1"+ of water. You'll need to clean your barrel periodically and definitely at end of season before winter. For my rain barrel, I don't have my gutter drain spout emptying through the screen on top. Instead I rigged an adapter kit from my drain spout to the barrel. (see photo) I got this rain barrel and adapter kit from Home Depot several years, but can't remember the product details. The whole system works very well for me.

Do you have any at your store on display?

Here's a picture of mine. So far so good, but I wish the Overflow outlet wasn't right over top of the spigot. Other than that I like mine a lot. I had it delivered. Delivery was free. It has a flat back and a flat bottom. The top is very slightly slanted towards the intake vent so what ever water splashes out from my down spout runs back into the barrel until it's full. Mine was full in one afternoon of a good rain. An average house with a good size garden can probably use two barrels. The house gutter system concentrates what comes from your roof to the barrel so it's easily more than you'd think from an average rain.

Where can you get the shape matching elevated base for the rain barrel?

I have not seen that item. I used two large patio blocks underneath and that made it easier to drain.

Removable Lid

Asked by Chelle October 23, 2020

Answers

I've owned and well used this barrel for great many years now. Basically, happy with it. BUT IT DOES NOT HAVE A REMOVEABLE LID! (perhaps can be modified?). I've answered his query before. Top only has 3 and 1/2 inch x 14 inch screen on the top - makes a bit difficult to be cleaning it out for Winter storage when things get to freezing outdoors. But it's done us well for the years here in North Central New Jersey.

Is it BPA free? Is cover removable?

There is a small rectangle screen at the top of the barrel that you can remove

is the top removable.

No There is just a screen in the top which is removable and prevents insects from getting in there

The weight of the water keeps it in place. Even empty, it will not move.

Do not buy brass Spicket breaks
Do not buy brass Spicket breaks Into two pieces after only turning it off a few times And the company won’t cover it because I bought it last year. You would think when you’re paying for brass it would not break into two pieces by just trying to turn it off. It had to be inferior to begin with to break that easily. The other half of the Spicket is still stuck inside the barrel. Truly a rip off! Ordered it through Home Depot and they did their best trying to get the company to replace it, but I have heard nothing!

The rain barrel works great. It has only rained a few times since I've had it and it has already filled up a few times. It is made very well. I like how the back is flat and fits flush against the garage.

OILY WATER SEPARATOR - This well made barrel was perfect for separating engine oil from the clean sea water in my ship's bilge. EPA literature suggests building a system whereby oily water can be added to a barrel so as to float the oil out of an upper port and pour the clean water out the spigot. This barrel comes with sturdy hardware and was essential in helping me purify 100s of gallons of oily bilge water. Highly recommend.

Looks great. Works great. Only change i would make is to make overflow opening connectible to a hose rather than having to install the included hose barb to direct overflow.

No issues with the spigot, used plumbers tape first. No issues with bulging. Directions do not mention what the nubbies on the sides are for. I am assuming for running multiple barrels in a chain. They are the size of a hose. I used a Diverter on my spout so that as barrel fills, water will continue down the drain spout. Seems better than the small overflow that the barrel has. For this I had to drill a hole as Diverter hose is larger than a garden hose.

First time I bought this particular rain barrel, but on inspection it seems at least as good as others I have owned. I'm setting it on concrete blocks about 20" off the ground and will rely on gravity feed to water some planter boxes nearby. I'll run it manually at first and if the results are good, I'll add an electronic timer valve to let it run automatically when I'm away.

Wow- what an awesome barrel. Great brass spigot. Mesh on top and front overflow should work good. Side ports to add a barrel if we choose. Well made. Fast shipping. GREAT price!
