50-gallon Rain Barrel is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality material and construction Solidly built and appealing design. Quality materials used thus sense it will be long lasting. Although it is placed in the back of one of our garages where it is not visible to anyone, I wanted an upgraded version to what is in the marketplace. The two outlets are positioned well to obtain water from upper and lower chambers. Drilled 3 holes in top to rid of standing water and fitted fine wire mesh inside the space to prevent debris from filtering through holes. At bottom periodically attach a segment of hose to drain water from bottom but mostly use bucket for upper portion. The filter over downspout area is properly placed and sized correctly. A very useful apparatus and lovely addition for gardening.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent choice I've been reading reviews on rainbarrels for over a year and finally bought this one. AND - I'm really happy with it! It was super easy to put together, the brass fittings are durable and you have 2 hose spigots, one upper and one lower. It's nice to be able to have the option of having a plant in the top. I currently don't and did drill a few small holes in the top plantar because splashover water does accumulate there. Overall - it looks great, works great and was very reasonably priced.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't wait for spring! Shipped in a timely manner, but it's January so not in place yet. Very nice, great color! Couldn't be more pleased, but reserve final comment until used.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 50 Gallon Rain barrel I ordered 2 rain barrels and the quality is very nice. The price was reasonable. I just wish the debris/bug screen fit better. I needed to redrill holes to get them to lay flatter. Other than that very happy with them. Doesn't take much of a rain to fill up 50 gallons.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from RAIN BARREL I purchased 2 rain barrels which we beautiful and very well constructed. The 2 spicots come in very handy. The shipment arrived in a couple of days and boxed well to prevent damage. Great quality and a great buy!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely Rain Barrel This rain barrel is very nice and made of quality materials. It looks lovely in my backyard vs. the rain barrel of my neighbor that does not look as nice. I put flowers in the top, however when it rained the debris screen holes are so small the rain gushed over the top and a lot of my soil washed out. I really like the two spigots, one high, one low - a back saver.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great so far Looks great, light gray color.I took off debris screen and have downspout going directly into rain barrel. With it on a lot of water sprayed out everywhere if it rains hard. One good rain and it is full. Had to hook a hose up to lowest brass drain and keep it open if it's going to rain and let it run out of hose into yard area off the brick patio and away from house foundation. I also drilled 3 small holes in top planter area, otherwise about 1 1/2 inches always sits in this area. There is a drainage side hole but it is too high, should be at the bottom of inside planter for proper drainage.

Does the top come off so that the inside can be cleaned periodically?

Also, is there a way for water to drain out of the top where a plant would go?
Asked by: DesignerAtLarge
The mesh screen can come off with just removing the 4 screws. Then add eco-safe cleaner and roll and drain. The flower pot at the top has a drain hole on the side so it is self draining.

Are these freeze resistant?

Asked by: nanadee1
I am in the Midwest so I leave spouts open in the fall until spring. I wouldn't leave water in it if it got below freezing for more than a few days.

Is this container PABA free?

Asked by: Ubuddah2
Thank you for your interest in the 50-gallon Rain Barrel. This item is made from BPA-free polyethylene, but PABA (para - aminobenzoic acid) is used mainly in cosmetics and beauty products and is not considered when making this item.
