      The RESCUE 50 gallon Solid Brown Flat Back Whiskey Rain Barrel features an integrated planter and an easy-to-install, patented downspout diverter kit which fits 2 in. x 3 in. standard or 3 in. x 4 in. high capacity downspouts. The downspout diverter will automatically keep your rain barrel full when rain has fallen and bypasses the rain barrel when full, preventing overfilling and overflowing which can cause flooding. Both environmentally-friendly and budget-conscious, this rain barrel kit collects rainwater to help reduce your dependence on municipal or well water. In addition, your plants will thrive using pure, soft rain water instead of the processed water from your tap, which can contain harmful elements. As an added bonus, the diverter system does not have to be removed during the winter season. The diverter and rain barrel can be bypassed so that water flows through the downspout as usual, keeping water from getting into the rain barrel and freezing. The integrated planter can be planted directly into or a pre-arranged floral basket can be used to adorn the top of the barrel. The planter area includes a weep hole, allowing excess water to drain out and preventing plant stress or death due to over-watering and root rot.

      • Curb Appeal, Collects water. Mount it up off ground
      • May 14, 2013
      • Verified Purchase & Recommended Product

      Product was shipped in timely manner, well packaged and well constructed. I know it’s not rocket surgery but, follow the directions, as you want to make sure you measure and mount the down spout converter correctly, in right direction of water flow. Also, I highly recommend mounting this on top of landscaping bricks, or something else to get it off the ground to aid with water flowing from hose. Maybe this is a known requirement with rain barrels, this is my first so, didn’t think about it until after installation, too late now, down spout is already cut, don’t make the same mistake. The planter up top is a hit with the wife but, I think you miss out on a lot of water. If you place a rain barrel in front of the house, this might be more curb appealing. In the back yard, I’ll try the simple top feed barrels to collect more water.

      Pros Easy to Install, Stylish, Durable Cons does not collect a lot of water like other designs, mounting directly on ground not recommended
