MUCH bigger than expected, 43 inches is not very accurate (closer to 5 feet). Arrived without the spouting connection or any documentation whatsoever. Came in two boxes taped together very hastily, not sure who's shipping these out but it didn't seem to be Home Depot. Returned to store due to all the missing parts and it not physically fitting in the space we intended to use it.

Haven’t hooked it up yet. The top area for flowers is nice. It is taller than 43 inches so I will have to remove the downspout and cut or piece new pieces to make it work. I thought it was shorter and was going to fit the 43 inches and all I would need to do is remove the bottom section.

This unit is everything it said it was. It was easy to install and works great. It arrived on time and was crushed on two sides. I let it sit in the garage over night and then took a rubber mallet to it and the areas popped out. Now that it has filled with water, you can't even tell it was crushed and no leaks.

Easy set up and my flower beds seem happy with a drink straight from the source! Just wish I'd bought the 85 gallon. The 60 gallon has a nice water flow for 38 mins. Very happy!

Bought and installed two of these, they both work great and already full from the last rain. One works perfect the second has a small leak between the green feed hose and the valve unit. We found if we mount the exit hose so it is above the water line there is no leaking. I wish I had bought two more!

Rain catcher
I live in So Calif where it never rains and I love to catch what little rain water we get for my house plants. First day we set it up it rained that night and was filled 50% ... such a blessing to capture that great rain water. Unfortunately I forgot to close the hose after second use and wondered why it got low so fast! Easy fix on my bad.

      I really like the design. Seems very sturdy built. When it was delivered it had two small flat spots on each side from storage/shipping. I set it out in the sun for about an hour on each side and they came right out.

        Had the barrel setup in time to catch it's first rain. Setup was simple and installing the gutter diverter was easy. I plan on expanding by adding more barrels later. Great product!

        Just what I wanted
        My rain barrel arrived sooner than I expected! I haven't installed it yet as I want to set it on blocks to give the water some drop. It's a good looking barrel.

          It was much lighter than I expected so very easy to move to the right spot and set up. It also looks very good and does not look like an "ugly" repurposed barrel converted to a water barrell

          Barrrel OK, but diverter system has problems
          The barrel itself works pretty much as designed, and is OK. The diverter kit mostly works, as designed, in light rain. However, if you have a heavy rain, it simply cannot handle the volume of water, and what happens then can become extremely problematic. The water will back up up your downspout, potentially all the way to the gutter. Water will be shooting out all sides of the downspout into the top of the diverter.

          sealed top
          The top is sealed accept for weep holes so you cannot clean out the barrel of accumulated debris from the roof runoff. Algae eventually grows and cant be accessed for cleaning with the sealed top. Ours came dented and would easily bend back if you could access the inside.

          50/50 review
          Loved the rain barrel however I did spray paint mine and it does look much better. The diverted does not work well .The water comes out the top instead of in the barrel or out the downspout. I will have to replace it with one that works, very disappointed in that part!

          Nice Rain Barrell
          We have purchased three of these barrels. Two 65 gal and one 85 gal. We purchased Fiskars diverter systems to use with them rather than the included adapter/hoses. One of the barrels was dented when we received it but with a bit of pushing we were able to work the dent mostly out and after the barrel filled it completely went away. The barrels look very nice and all are functioning well. We really like the sandstone look and the top planter that make it very appealing to the eye.

          Perfect!
          Beautiful true to color & awesome texture. I liked it so much, I ordered another. We live in Texas with no basement, so no worries about diverting rain away from the house. We sawed a hole in the top, cut the gutter to fit, drilled a hole near the top to drain overfill.

              Just wish the planter built in the top were a little deeper.

                Second purchase of this attractive rain barrel
                I have purchase two of these rain barrels. I like the downspout diverter. It allows me to place the rain barrel in a spot of my choosing near the downspout instead of under it. Since the rain barrel fills up so quickly, having the downspout taking the overflow instead of an overflow drain on the rain barrel itself, keeps me from having a flood around the rain barrel. I like the planter, but with the shallow depth of the soil held in the top, you need to water often on hot days. This rain barrel looks like a terra cotta planter and it is attractive to have next to the house. Make sure you keep the barrel raised up off the ground for good water pressure when the barrel get low. You may want to change the cheap plastic shut off valve on the end of the hose with a good brass valve.
