I use this to disperse my downspout water

By Rancher

from Tehachapi, CA

Verified Buyer

Comments about : 4-Port Deluxe Rain Barrel:

I have a downspout for my barn gutters that pours out rainwater on to the dirt. I installed a different barrel, but a rut had started to form, because it would overflow during heavy rain. This 4-port barrel scatters the gutter runoff away from the barn, into 4 different directions and waters my trees at the same time.

rain barrel

Pros

Cons

  • Inconvenient Arrengement

Best Uses

    Comments about : 4-Port Deluxe Rain Barrel:

    This rainbarrel seems well built but the design is sort of unusual. The overflow hose inside the barrel doesn't seem very secure and the outlet hose has the on/off thumbswitch on the wrong end. It is on the end near the barrel and is inconvenient. It doesn't fit the other way.

    Comments about : 4-Port Deluxe Rain Barrel:

    I live in an area plagued with drought so this huge barrel is an awesome way to collect and conserve water. This spring, I found the bottom had cracked on my rain barrel and the company replaced it with a new barrel immediately. The customer service from Gardeners Supply is the best I have ever received from a company. My only complaint would be that some of the plastic components don't stand the test of time. The inner hook area on the lid, for the tube on the inside, cracked immediately. The plastic attachment that is supposed to hold the watering tube on the outside is also pretty fragile. Breaks after a couple of seasons of exposure. Excellent product overall though.

    Rain Barrel Problems

    By Disappointed

    from Southwest Virginia

    Pros

      Cons

      • Attracted Bugs
      • Must Be Raised For Flow

      Comments about : 4-Port Deluxe Rain Barrel:

      I'm sure it was the way we used it, but we even tried to raise it up a bit on cinderblocks - and that was difficult to do. The screen developed holes. When there was a great deal of rain, water splashed off the top of the screen and hit the siding at the corner of the house where the gutter was - and we're now removing the barrel and replacing the siding at a significant cost.

      Alot of money for a slow flow!

      By Valley of Gardens

      from New Haven County Connecticut

      Verified Buyer

      Comments about : 4-Port Deluxe Rain Barrel:

      I thought this would be the perfect fix to my lugging watering cans to and from the garden. The only thing that was left out was the fact that if you place the barrel as seen in the magazine...you get very little water flow. The barrel must be raised up in order for gravity to help it along. Felt that that was left out of the advertising for it. Would recommend to a friend with my add on of raising it up.

      Comments about : 4-Port Deluxe Rain Barrel:

      This is a very good rain barrel. I have 3 different ones, all from Gardener's Supply, and all 3 have tiny issues. I mean really tiny. This one is handsome, high - capacity, with multiple hose ports. I have it up on cinder blocks to improve the water pressure, and I attached a hose to two ports, while still being able to fill a bucket or watering can from another. The only weird thing is that the screen top frame warped after 1 day in the hot NC sun, and the design of it has a moat that allows water to stand/stagnate around the top rim. I weighted it down with rocks to correct the warping, and found a tree frog sheltering in the water under the rocks one day. Hopefully he'll eat the mosquito larvae in the moat! We do spray for mosquitoes, so it isn't a big issue in my opinion. Just something to consider in the next redesign.

        • Gardening

        Comments about : 4-Port Deluxe Rain Barrel:

        This is the second rain barrel I've purchased from Gardeners and am happy with both. This one is bigger and has more hose hookups, so it is now sitting in the vegetable garden under a small rain runoff lead. Lightweight hoses enable effective watering between rows. So happy to have it. The first one is next to the house, filling from a downspout for watering flowers. Great for gardeners!

            Plastic port outlets are problematic

            By Annie

            from Albuquerque, NM

            Verified Reviewer

            Pros

            • Available colors
            • Can See Into The Barrel
            • Removable Mesh Filter

            Cons

            • Need More Than 75gal
            • Plastic Port Outlets
            • Threads On Outlets Wear

            Best Uses

              Comments about : 4-Port Deluxe Rain Barrel:

              We use it as a standard rain barrel, collecting water from a downspout for garden watering in dry New Mexico. It suits our decor and purposes (though due to the size of the roof that this downspout drains, a barrel that holds more than 75 gallons would be better - and using two connected barrels is not visually appealing beneath this downspout). The AWFUL thing about these barrels is that the port outlets are plastic but garden hoses and other attachments are metal; so, with use (screwing hoses on and off), the plastic threads of the ports are ruined, rendering them useless (i.e., they no longer accept the attachments without letting water leak from the barrel). Gardener's Supply customer service phone personnel tried to be helpful, sending us free metal "connectors" but these DO NOT solve the problem as they too have to connect onto the ruined plastic threaded outlets. I would recommend this barrel IF the port outlets were metal, or had a metal spigot/faucet for the outlet (as at least one other brand of rain barrel does have).

                Comments about : 4-Port Deluxe Rain Barrel:

                The over flow spout is great, until a wind storm- I would suggest something metal to pin around it so it doesn't blow off in high wind areas. This product worked great for us all year- I really appreciate the mesh cover to detract mosquitos and the short hose, which can help water nearby plants. The weight (empty, of course!)is great, as it's easy to move for one person.
