Space-Saving Barrel Combines Good Looks with Large Capacity

  • An attractive way to collect free rainwater for watering
  • Includes handy brass spigot for filling watering cans
  • Flat-back design with 50-gallon capacity
  • How much rainfall can you collect from your roof? Use the Rainfall Harvest Calculator

This handsome rain barrel is made of rugged polyethylene, colored and textured for a natural-wood look. It holds 50 gallons, yet snugs right up to a house or garage, thanks to its clever, flat-back design. Improved solid brass spigot is now offset from hose attachment, allowing you to fill any size watering can without awkward maneuvering.

  • Durable polyethylene with a solid brass spigot
  • 25" W x 36" H x 19" D
  • Holds 50 gallons
  • Not for drinking water use

        Comments about Flat-Back Rain Barrels:

        Easy assembly and setup. Looks good in the yard with the flat back against the house. Would have liked better packaging of the plumbers tape (hard to keep from twisting).
        Will likely add another one in the future.

            Comments about Flat-Back Rain Barrels:

            We had an area next to the house that needed a rain barrel. The round ones were too big and the flat sided barrel fit perfectly. It is located close to some house plants that I have outside, so it is convenient to get the water from the device and water these plants. We have 4 other large round barrels surrounding our home, this makes #5. So far, we have had no issues from the product and are quite pleased with it.

              the idea is great, it appears quality control is lacking
              once I fixed both valves with epoxy(suggested by customer service) it works well....
              disappointed that all the rep could do was tell me to fix it myself...

                I have this product in front of my house and the hubby adjusted the downspouts so I have fresh rainwater at all times pouring into it. The screen keeps out varmits and I added a section of hose to direct water into the back of the one garden area.
