Rated 3 out of 5 by from Meh So I've had my rain barrel for a few months now. My biggest issue is the hose connections is so low you can't fit a watering can or hose on (to fit hose you have to turn it sideways). It definately needs to be elevated on a stand. It holds a fair amount of water, but the straight back buckles out when full.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Produit non conforme à la photo du site La photographie du produit sur le sit de Home Dépot était différente du produit reçu. Les anneaux de plastique autour du tonneau étaient peints en noir, ce qui donnait un coup d'oeil extérieur plus réaliste. Le produit reçu est similaire à la photo ci-dessus, i.e. les anneaux sont de la couleur du plastique. Très décevant. Je n'ai pas donc reçu le produit que j'attendais.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Does the job and looks nice Looks sturdy and we like that the spigot is metal. Once it is full of water the back curves backwards and it has a tiny leak in one of the connectors to other rain water barrels that it should be sealed. We have installed the barrel recently so I can't say if it will survive the winter. Overall it does the job and it is looking nice in our backyard.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well, though could be improved. Works great, collects and stores water as advertised. The screen on top of barrel is quite loose, the first time it rained the screen got washed into the barrel. Also, there is no hose for the 1” barbed overflow spout, that needed to be purchased separately, and finding an inner diameter 1” hose was a bit challenging.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Rain Barrel We bought this to have warmer temperature water to water all of our plants, and we are really enjoying it, it needs to be raised 10-12" to get good water flow. We really like the flat back as it saves space yet still holds plenty of water.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great shipping Fast shipping, arrived in good condition Have it all setup but there must be a small hole on the bottom somewhere cause it's leaking , guess I'll have to wait until September when it's empty and some how fix it for next summer

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Having a water barrel It's a good buy. Make sure you elevate it so as to put a watering can underneath. May need to put a couple stones on the ends of the screen to keep from floating away during heavy downpour. Keep in mind it is a flatback barrel.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from rain barrel: a green investment. So far, so good. When it rains, it collects water. When it's dry out, we use it to water the garden. Haven't used tap water for watering much at all this summer. It was easy to install and looks pretty nice, for plastic.

Is the top removable so I can place a pump In it

Asked by: Pump
The top has a rectangular opening for water collection measuring 14” x 2 1/8.  I have used an electric pump by putting the intact hose into the barrel through this opening
