Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

An attractive barrel that doubles as a planter. Simple to put together and use.
I found the rain barrel to be well made and very easy to install. I particularly liked the method it utilizes to prevent the rain barrel from over filling.
I love this rain barrel, it was a breeze to install, works as advertised, and looks great alongside the house! Everything needed was included and the installation took much less than an hour from start to finish. I especially enjoyed that it features a removable lid that locks in place, and an integrated diverter that redirects the water flow back to the downspout once the rain barrel is completely full.

What reviewers didn't like

Smaller capacity than others on our list.
I did notice though that it does not capture all flow even when the barrel is not yet full. If you live in a climate that only gets a small amount of rain, one of the other designs that will catch all of the drain flow may be better for you.
