Exclusive | Double Your Rain Barrel Capacity — Save Water and Money!

  • Collect and store 150 gallons of rainwater at a time
  • Four ports on each rain barrel; use one for linking, the other three for connecting multiple hoses or filling watering cans
  • Easy, no-tools assembly
  • Choice of Brown or Green
  • How much rainfall can you collect from your roof? Use the Rainfall Harvest Calculator

The only thing better than collecting pure, chemical-free rainwater for your garden is collecting twice as much of it. Our largest rain barrel now features four hose connector ports, so it's easier than ever to access water and link multiple barrels together. For example, you can use one port for filling watering cans, connect hoses to two others to water raised beds, and use the fourth to link to a second barrel. All ports have fittings so you can easily attach one or more hoses or a linking kit — no tools required. Also includes six end caps for the ports you're not using. An overflow outlet diverts excess water away, plus there's a removable debris screen on top to keep leaves out. Can also be used as a reservoir by filling the rain barrel with water from your garden hose, and then watering plants as needed with a watering can or soaker hose, without dragging the garden hose out each time. Includes a child safety grid and 4' hose with on/off thumb valve that connects to a standard garden hose. Enjoy substantial savings when you buy this set of two 4-Port Deluxe Rain Barrels plus the linking kit.

  • UV-stable polyethylene (25% recycled material); hose with thumb valve; brass fittings
  • Set includes two 4-Port Deluxe Rain Barrels and one Linking Kit
  • Each rain barrel is 28" in diameter x 36" H and holds 75 gallons
  • Not for drinking water use
  • Easy assembly
  • Gardener's Supply Exclusive

Comments about Two 4-Port Rain Barrels plus Linking Kit:

The barrels are made well, look good and hold more water than other barrels. We use it to fill our ponds when the water is low, give water to our outdoor animals, water plants, wash out pots from plants, wash items from the house, wash hands and garden shoes and feet after gardening. We feel that it is very convenient when the hose from our water faucet does not reach that part of the house.

      Comments about Two 4-Port Rain Barrels plus Linking Kit:

      Conceptually it is a good design. But the overflow system is bad design. It seems like all the time and effort was spent on the rest of the design and then they let a grade school kid design and construct that part. Leaks excessively, noting fits tight, and a plastic cable tie to tighten the hose on, poor concept.

        Comments about Two 4-Port Rain Barrels plus Linking Kit:

        We have a lot of roof, so it only made sense to collect rain for our garden! We started with a single barrel last year & it did so well that we purchased the 2 barrel set with linking kit this year. Impressed with all the features; the multiple ports, the internal overflow tube, the debris screen, the hose with the thumb valve, etc. We had them unwrapped, leveled, and all connections secured in less than 30 minutes. The next day, it rained and filled both barrels (and we got to see the overflow tubes in action)! We are looking forward to watering our raised bed garden with chlorine & fluoride-free rainwater.

          Comments about Two 4-Port Rain Barrels plus Linking Kit:

          I use these barrels to collect water from the roof of my garden shed. If they worked they would be terrific. There are three serious problems with these barrels that have rendered them useless after a few years of use. First, the spigots do not close fully (they never have), so if the hose falls to the ground, then all the water eventually leaks out. The hoses are held up by pushing them into a notch on the rim, but the notch doesn't grip the hoses well, so you will often come out after a nice rain and find the hoses on the ground and the barrels empty. Finally the overflow hose doesn't attach firmly to the bottom opening, so that all three of my barrels have begun to leak from the bottom of the overflow valve. I could buy a hose valve that would actually close, and possibly I could jerry rig something to hold the hose firmly in place. I could replace the overflow hose and fix it in place with cement or silicone. But at these prices that shouldn't be necessary.

          Comments about Two 4-Port Rain Barrels plus Linking Kit:

          I have been wanting to get these for years due the capacity they hold. They are nice looking, easy to manuver around and lots of choices with the outlets.
          I read other reviews and worried about the leaking but I have had NO trouble and I bought two.
          So far the only "Con" I noted was water gathering on the lip between the screen and edge of barrel -- I have lot's of mosquitos and have toyed with the idea of drilling drain holes around the entire lip ---- can anyone think of a reason NOT to do that ??? Please write a response !

            Collecting 150 gallons of water is perfect for my garden and house plants. Dealing with the constant, slow dribble from the eight (8) hose ports is a mess. The barrels are full of water; repairs will be attempted when empty for winter.

            Comments about Two 4-Port Rain Barrels plus Linking Kit:

            The barrel's size made it very attractive, however it is very difficult to get the connection hose to connect without leaking. The plastic threads on the barrel do not link well to the metal fittings on the hose. The cut out around the connections is quite small, and difficult to get the hose tightened.

              Outstanding barrels that really deliver the rainwater.Easy to use. First time I used them, since we were in a drought, the overflow spout leaked a little.( drips) After a day or so, it stopped, probably seals were dry around the spout and the water swelled them back up again. No problem at all with them and very pleased with how easy it is to collect the rain water. I would,without a doubt, recommend this to anybody looking for a good quality rain barrel.
