Questions & Answers

Does the lid come off easily to get water with a bucket?

Does the lid come off easily to get water with a bucket?
Asked by: Judy
The whole lid doesn't just lift straight off. Each of the four sides of the lid has two little tabs that hold the lid onto the barrel. You have to pull out on the rim of the lid and work your way around the rim to release the grip of the tabs to get the lid free. It's not that hard to do but that's what it takes. I think it's a safety feature to keep little kids out. If your bucket is small enough though, you could just lift the grill section in the center of the lid straight off and dip through that, assuming the end of your down spout leaves enough clearance. The grill section is not held in place by tabs so it just lifts off.

is there a diverter kit for this rain barrel?
Asked by: Chloe
you can buy any diverter kit and it should work, mine is around the corner from the leader so I use a combination of A and B elbows to get the water to the barrel.

50 Gal. Rain Barrel is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 25.

It's easy to put together, will last for probably 6-7 years under optimum conditions, then the folds where the flat wall meets the raised wall will deteriorate and crack. The Suncast website doesn't list it when detailing the warranty properties but says that everything not included is warrantied for 5 years. I sent an email to Suncast asking how to register them and got an email back saying the warranty, which is basically free from manufacturing defects, ends at time of purchase! So I asked in another email "so I am buying Suncast why?" and got no answer.

We ordered this rain barrel because it was the only one available which was short enough to effectively capture the water from our new swamp cooler. Sometimes we connect it to the hose to drip water our raspberry patch, but mostly I use my sprinkling can to hand water the garden. (lots of trips, good exercise) We have had it over a month now and are very happy with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ... The barrel was picked up at Home Depot, after unpacking it I found it to be in PERFECT condition! One small problem: There were no washers on the bulk head fittings. I called Suncast , told them of the omission. The woman at customer service quickly sent out two replacement bulkheads!

I wanted one in this size range with a removable lid to allow scooping water out. It's not exactly decorative looking but it's acceptable. I ordered it online and picked it up at the store. After unpacking it though, I discovered from reading the paperwork inside that you are not supposed to use it at temperatures below freezing. You are actually supposed to take it out of service to avoid damage. Not acceptable for me so I returned it. I wish that information had been included in the online description of the product. It would have saved me time and hassle.

It's low so fits in many SUV’s and station wagons. We put it in the car empty, fill it up, drive to the garden and either attach a longer hose or fill watering cans and water. Perfect!

This was an exact replacement for another rain barrel that we had for years. So many times nowadays, products are no longer made or cheapened so much that true replacement is impossible. Was glad to be able to get the same, exact product.
