What size spigot would you need if want to replace plastic with brass?

Not a big cost difference but the barrel with plastic spigot is less than one that comes with brass and I then could get a replacement spigot for 4-5$ and not use plastic. I know that’s still not big cost difference but covers some sales tax. Different spigot also sounds like could solve hose connect I read is an issue with plastic.
Asked by: Suzanne
I am actually quite happy with the plastic spigot, our previous rain barrel had the brass spigot, which I kept, thinking the plastic would be an inferior quality, hose hooks up no leaks so far so good

does it come with what it is sitting on?

Asked by: 007bond
No. It’s the barrel only you’ll have to build a stand.

Is the top of the rain barrel tapered towards the screen so you could use it without gutters and still gather a decent amount of water just from roof runoff?

Where are the "two dual overflows"? What are the "rust free ports"? When the barrel becomes full, can the overflow be channeled into a hose or other tubing away from the rain barrel? (There are 3 questions here, related but separate.)
Asked by: Cathy
One is in the very front top and another you drill a 1" hole on the side, at the flat spot near the top and insert a valve. You might be able to connect tubing to the top 1" valve to run overflow somewhere. You can connect a garden hose at bottom that will flow out to other buckets, etc.

My barrel came with instructions to drill a hole in the top—is this necessary? It already has an overflow.

Asked by: Dd
Only if you’re going to connect multiple barrels together. Otherwise no need to drill.
