Save money on your water bills, help the environment, and give yourself a great-looking lawn. Not only is rainwater great for your grass and plants, because it’s naturally low on salt and chlorine, but it’s also good for washing your cars and windows. Algreen Agua Rain Barrels are made using roto-molded plastic that withstands harsh temperatures and won’t fade, crack, or chip. This 50-gallon rainsaver comes with a corrosion-proof screen guard that keeps leaves and other materials out of the barrel. An included planter is built right into the top, so you can add dirt and grow plants right from the barrel. You also get a 4-foot garden hose with shutoff nozzle and a hook to hang it on. Barrel measures 23 x 33 inches. Includes a 20-year limited warranty on the barrel only (included accessories not covered). Assembly required. See instructions.

I have had my eye on these and the larger ones for well over a year but each time they were sold out before I could put in an order. Spur of the moment saw these and ordered 2 immediately. I opted for the "smaller" 50 gallon rain barrel which is still the same size as most on the market albeit MUCH more attractive.

Delivery was very quick - 2 days. Both arrived wrapped in a plastic bag with the contents stuffed inside. I suspect mine were originally boxed since there was a card-board shipping label taped to the top of each but it's hard to say - the local deliver seems to be pretty tough on products lately and one arrived with the side pushed in a bit. I'm going to try and fill it up to see if it pops back out as well as test the seams to make sure there are no other problems that don't readily meet the eye.

The hose is a very inexpensive quality - you will likely want to replace it and I've already ordered better quality remnants available elsewhere on Amazon itself. Also, the valve is located at the very bottom of the container - you should get maximum drainage unlike other models where the discharge spout is higher up the side (or even at the top in some models...which makes no sense to me whatsoever).

These truly do look like clay or adobe especially at a distance. Are lightweight when empty and the total effect is very pleasing. A terrific alternative to those with HOA restrictions or just searching for a visually pleasing product. The price is very competitive to most others on the market although certainly a lot higher priced than finding your own used soap bucket or such. Locally even those go for $40 and up...if you can manage to find them at all.

I ordered two of these barrels a few weeks ago (they sold out quickly last year, so I jumped when I saw them listed), and we just installed them a few nights ago.

They arrived very quickly, as most purchases thru Amazon do. Last year, I ordered two of the larger 65 gal. versions (the Algreen 81001), and they were WONDERFUL: beautiful, well made and functioned perfectly. I knew I wanted two more for our two other downspouts for this year. The price for the larger-sized ones had gone up (by $50 a barrel!) so that's why I opted for this smaller 50 gal. version. I will admit that they're nice looking, but the larger ones are sturdier. AND, the larger ones came with everything needed for installation. These smaller ones did not include an overflow hose, and it took my husband 3 trips to the local Lowe's to find a hose large enough in diameter to do the job. He commented to me a few times how he thought the larger ones were so much better made as he was doing the installation.

Lastly, this smaller barrel does not have the brass spigot the larger one has. I can tell you that the spigot operates much better than the hose. Unless you can mount the barrel up high enough, your flow is really, really slow. And we didn't take that chance, because these puppies are HEAVY when they're full. The green hoses on both models are super-cheap--they degrade quickly, and will need to be replaced. Mine was stored indoors from last fall until 2 weeks ago, and the hose had cracked anyway.

With all that said, I love how this thing looks. It's more like sculpture than a rain barrel. But I just couldn't justify spending $120 extra dollars for the 30 extra gallons I would have gotten, had I bought two big ones again. I'm glad I have them, but I was ecstatic with the 65 gallon version. With this one, I'm thinking my bargain hunting may have bitten me a little.

Got this last week and set it up. Problem one: the vessel is sealed except for where the water enters, the hose connection and the overflow. The instructions and parts are all inside and you have to try and get them out through this about 4x6" opening. Problem two: the overflow port is not the shape of a gutter tube, but about 2" across (maybe a vacuum cleaner hose would fit over it. It is in the back, so you can't place the vessel against a wall and still fit some hose or tube to redirect the overflow away from your house. Problem 3: outlet hose is cheap and unless you're lucky already kinked. You can try to fix it, but it's easier to just replace with a better piece of hose. It should be longer anyway. It barely reaches the cheap hook used to hold it up. It is 180 degrees around the barrel so comes out the front. Not the most appealing location. Other things: That thing that looks like a planter on the top of the urn is really just a small depression in the top separated from the inlet (about 30" in area and about 4" deep. No drainage. So you could put a few small bog plants in it, or constantly replace annuals that don't need drainage.

So for $100 plus you get a poorly designed rain barrel that looks like terra cotta from a distance, but like what it is, plastic, when you get withing 10 feet of it. The odd thing is, it could have been much better designed and constructed to provide a higher level of satisfaction. I doubt they sell many from places where you can inspect them before buying.

Not my best purchase. Wish I followed my first impression, which was it was what it is, and not the most useful garden accessory.
