Flaws in design

By Renie

from Cinti, OH

Comments about : Rainwater Urn, 65 Gallon:

It is impossible to completely drain the barrel. the center of the bottom is elevated so low level water cannot escape. I have tried flipping it over and water becomes trapped in the upper rim. Left on its side, it will eventually dry. The inside of the barrel ca become pretty awful, tho I have had it for about a decade. I use Mosquito Dunks to prevent hatch pests in that water stranded in the bottom. Oh, and my faucet also stopped working. I am still glad that I have it. It keeps water from entering my basement thru old pipes in the ground.

      bought 2 for in the back yard and set up higher for better pressure on concrete round stepping stones stacked up. look real nice, like the brown color , its a great shade. my son installed for me with a flat discharge hose for overflow, which is great because you can step over it flat on the ground and it moves the rain away from the house. think Il get the smaller one for the deck too. The 65 gallon is the way to go for main gutters

      nice looking, bad design

      By kris

      Comments about : Rainwater Urn, 65 Gallon:

      this is my third one because they look better than most rain barrels and I want them to match in my yard. But a couple of really dumb design issues are annoying. One is the spout can't be used. Literally, you cant screw it in far enough to not leak like mad, and still turn the handle. SUPER DUMB. I had to find a longer one at the hardware store that fit. They used to sell you a bad plastic one, now its metal but you cant use it. See photos. The other thing is this "planter concept" for the top is also really really dumb. It becomes a bucket when it rains so either your plants will rot - there is no drainage OR you don't plant plants in there and it is a gross mosquito green smelly pool. Super dumb. I drill holes in it so the water goes IN TO THE RAIN BARREL. Which is why we buy these things. See photos. Also it has a horizontal seem in the middle and it will begin to leak around the spout at some point. It's too bad they cant pour the plastic to be one piece like most other barrels. It took about a year for mine to start leaking.

        This rain barrel urn fits neatly at the back of a corner garden that was getting washed out by the amount of rain delivered from a roof valley. I also do not have spigots on this side of the house, so two problems were solved at once. In addition, it is attractive and blends in well with the house and garden.

        Collects water fine. Rigging the overflow was complicated.

        Comments about : Rainwater Urn, 65 Gallon:

        Looks nice but was not finished well. We wanted to be able to add a hose to the run-off outlet and had to go to the hardware store for plumbing supplies because of the odd size and lack of thread for connecting a hose. Also had to vacuum out the inside as pieces and hundreds of small shards of sharp plastic were left inside after manufacture. So far other connections seem snug enough to prevent leaks.

          I've invested a lot in the landscaping in my home's curb appeal and landscaping and wanted a rain barrel that wouldn't detract from that--this is the one! I got it in brown and it looks great. It is pretty easy to put together but you need to be extra careful installing the spigot or it will leak a little. One decent rain filled the barrel and it's easy to use the small hose to fill buckets or a watering can. For the overflow hose, the best fit seems to be a 1.5 inch sump pump discharge hose--you can get them online or in home centers and the kit comes with the right-sized clamp so it is super easy to put together. I didn't bother putting a plant in the top but the depression in the top is a great place to stash hand tools when you're working nearby. I liked this rain barrel so much that I've ordered another one to use in my backyard.
