Why is the overflow port at the bottom?

By Judy

Comments about : Deluxe Rain Barrel, Brown:

I have a smaller version of this from several years ago. I liked it well enough to order another. The newer version is larger and for some strange version the overflow port is at the bottom of the barrel. I will not fill up beyond that port. It is useless. I would not recommend this to a friend. I also tried to order a new screen for the older one. The screen I got is for the larger version. Guess I will mosey over to the hardware store and get some screen patching items.

    Comments about : Deluxe Rain Barrel, Brown:

    I was so excited when I received this product. It worked really well for the first couple years. Then, the overflow started leaking. It's very difficult to get it "seated" over the port. I called, and was told they didn't sell replacement parts. I would love to give this a higher rating, but there are some serious design elements that need improving. First, while I like the debris screen, this items also needs a removable top, to facilitate cleaning. The "spokes" on the top make it nearly impossible to get one's arm or hose down inside to properly rinse any fine debris or muck that builds up and the lip on the top edge makes it nearly impossible to get everything out. The water line is so narrow, it takes forever to fill a watering container. I substituted a replacement line from a hose reel, which works beautifully. Given the cost of this item, I expected a better design. Gardener's Supply needs to re-think its "exclusive" offering.

      I use collected soft rain water to hand water several areas in my garden because our city water is very hard with lots of magnesium, calcium & other salts.

      Comments about : Deluxe Rain Barrel, Brown:

      This barrel is one piece which makes cleaning a chore. The water line attaches to a smooth nipple only about an inch long and because of the design, the barrel must be upside down to install the line. The water line nipple should be larger and threaded which would allow a true brass fitting. The hose is attached with a .99 cent clamp which can rust and it puts a lot of stress on the garden hose, which can then fail. Once the hose is installed a too hard tug on the hose can cause it to slip off, naturally draining the barrel.

        I bought this product to catch some down spout water, the product leaks terribly. They should test these products before they ship them out... So disappointed...

            The overflow diversion tube means I don't have to worry about a big rain when I'm not around. Improved version with not so many useless extra hose attachments.

            I use my rain barrel to water my potted plants in the yard. Saves money on water and is so convenient not to have to connect my hose to water everything. We have 2 linked together and having all that water available is so nice.

            Comments about : Deluxe Rain Barrel, Brown:

            Got this rain barrel with the downspout diverter and connected it the same day. We had rain a few days later and I was thrilled to fine I had 75 gallons of water in my barrel. It's great for watering potted plants, hanging plants, vegetables in raised beds and pots. We since have gotten another barrel and linked the two. We will see how that works in a few days as we are expecting rain.
