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:

    I really like this rain barrel - the best out of the three rain barrels that I have. I fits nice and snug against the building and looks great. The two water spouts are very easy to use.

    I use this rain barrel regularly to water my outdoor garden.

      Comments about Flat-Back Rain Barrels:

      I loved the idea of this flat back and saving water. It's light and easy to maneuver. It's a nice neutral color that blends in.
      The trick was getting the diverter I wanted to hook up to the downspout. None of our local building supplies had it so I'm waiting for that to arrive.
      Can't wait to get it hooked up and in use!

        Comments about Flat-Back Rain Barrels:

        I have purchased this rain barrel before and had no problem. However this time, the bottom spout was missing and I had to make a trip to my local hardware store for additional parts. Not fun and much more work than I expected. I won't be ordering this item again.

                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.
