      Save on your water bills and reduce the stress on the municipal water treatment facilities with nature's solution collect rainwater. When drought sets in and rain is short, rain collectors can provide that precious water you need for your lawn and garden. Made from tough and durable recycled plastic, the rain collector is created with a wood grain effect. The RTS rain collector has many unique features including a child safe lid that eliminates any worries of an unattended rain collector, mesh screen to keep out debris and insects, linkable to other rain barrels for increased capacity (linking kit sold separately) and a water tap (spigot) allowing for quick and easy access to your water supply. This rain collector can provide up to 53 gal. of pure un-chlorinated water. During heavy rain falls, a typical roof can produce hundreds of gallons of water and by saving that water, you can reduce your average water usage. With those kinds of savings, this rain barrel can pay for itself in just a few seasons.

      Light, rather attractive rain collector. Also one of the cheapest ones available. Comes with plastic spigot and a filter to be inserted into a lid opening. Assembly is easy. Manual suggest two people to tighten a spigot nut. I did it alone by jamming the spigot with an wrench outside while tightening the nut with another wrench inside. To maximize water collection - we do not have much rain - the collector was hooked up simultaneously to two downspouts using two different approaches (see pictures). Additional items purchased to complete the installation were: 53 gal. Rain Collector Stand (Model # 55110002008081, Internet/Catalog SKU# 202403995) DIY Rain Barrel Diverter and Parts Kit (Model # RBK-0001, Internet/Catalog SKU# 203256576) which also acts as an overflow mechanism,; Flex-A-Spout White Downspout Extension (Model 85010, Store SKU # 193181, Internet/Catalog # 100057879). Gutters were cleaned and protected with plastic mesh: Amerimax Home Products 6 in. x 20 ft. Black Roll Gutter Guard (Model 85198, Internet/Catalog # 202962716). I had to deviate from instruction on the Rain Barrel Diverter installation due to the design of the collector's rim: an openings in the collector and in the downspout were drilled 2.5" below the rim instead of 3" indicated in the manual.
