Rated 4 out of 5 by from Patience is a Virtue! Looks great on our patio! The spigot is well made, good quality and we’ve had no problems with it leaking. However if a quick fill is a must, this is not the product for you.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from consumer I was disappointed in the spigot on this water barrel. I have 4 other barrels and their spigots are larger and thus easier to manipulate. The spigot on this unit sits closer to the unit and I have difficulty turning it on and off as it is currently designed.

One suggested improvement would be to put a valve that could receive a hose on the bottom outlet. That way the water below the spigot could be drained easily.

Can the screen be removed? Is there only the one spigot? How far is the spigot from the bottom of the barrel?

Asked by: Doreen
The screen guard is indeed removable. There is one spigot installed and is located approximately 10 inches from the bottom.

People who bought this item several years ago seem to complain about the cheap spigot. Has the quality improved? It seems it would be very hard to replace.
Asked by: LuvsCavs
We had a small issue with the spigot as it was clogged. I took a piece of wire and ran it up the spigot and that did the trick. I think this could be an issue with any rain barrel. Don't let it stop you from buying this one. We are pleased with ours.

Can you easily attach a hose to the spigot or hose opening? Or do you have to purchase something extra?
Asked by: Glo
Yes. The spigot that comes with the rain barrel fits a standard garden hose fitting. However, as the owner of four of these barrels over several years (I have three and one cracked in winter and was replaced), I can tell you that the spigot which comes with the barrel is poorly made and corrodes almost immediately. I buy a good quality hose spigot whenever I purchase one of these barrels and switch it out right away. By the way, you should empty the barrel in winter if you live in a hard freeze area. Though they are supposed to be winter-proof, one of mine cracked. I sealed the crack by covering it with mesh and then coating the inside with liquid plastic which let me eke two more years out of the barrel, but because the barrels are so expensive, I drain them in winter now just to be safe.

Would I be able to connect 2 of these together to get twice the water storage & to handle overflow? Thank you.
Asked by: Millie
I have had three of the 75 gallon barrels connected together for several years. If you connect them to each other at the very bottom, using the drain plug in the legs which are threaded for a simple garden hose fitting, then all three barrels will "self-level" by just filling one of them. I have two dehumidifiers, one roof downspout, and the condensate drain lines from my ductless mini-split HVAC system (seven units) all emptying into these three rain barrels every day. I have a sump pump in one of them, attached to a timer. At 2:00 p.m. every afternoon, the sump pump distributes water from the rain barrels through a 1/2-inch Raindrip drip irrigation system to 20 window boxes and eleven hanging baskets around my house and yard for thirty minutes. Enough water is gathered from these sources that I rarely have to fill the rain barrels manually, but I rigged a hose from my outdoor spigot to one of the barrels so I can do that, too. If rain threatens to overfill the barrels, I keep a hose connected to all three barrels which empties the barrels and carries water away from my foundation and out into the yard by turning one valve. Simple window screening keeps mosquitoes and debris at bay.

What is the diameter of the overflow hole, and where is it located? I downloaded the installation manual from Koolatron, but it makes no mention of the overflow. Thanks
Asked by: artvarck
The overflow spout for the KoolScapes 75 gal. Rain Barrel is located the upper rear-portion of the rain barrel. The overflow's opening is 1.25" wide while the overflow spout is 1.75" wide.
