Product Description

From the Manufacturer

Every gardener knows that the key to a successful growing season is water, water, and more water. But with droughts and shortages hitting parts of the U.S. and Canada, keeping flowers flourishing and the veggie patch productive can be a costly proposition. The Fiskars Rain Barrel System is an easy way to collect, store, and dispense this valuable resource, so you can use it to provide much-needed moisture for your vegetable garden, container planters, and even indoor plants.



Diverter channels water from gutter downspout to the barrel.

The Downspout Diverter Makes the Difference

Designed to easily integrate into your home's existing downspouts, Fiskars worry-free diverter kits, included with most Fiskars Rain Barrels (not included with the Fiskars Saguaro Rain Barrel system), channel rainwater from your downspout into the rain barrel. When the rain barrel is full, the diverter channels the water back to the downspout and away from your home's foundation. A worry-free solution for easy access to water to perk up your tomatoes or refresh your rose bushes.

Once the barrel is full, the diverter will direct the water down the remainder of the downspout.

How Do The Downspout Diverters Work?

The downspout diverter channels water from the gutter downspout to the barrel. Once the barrel is full, the diverter will bypass the water down the remainder of the downspout.

Both downspout diverter systems are designed to work with standard 2-by-3-inch or 3-by-4-inch downspouts. These two sizes are standard for most homes in the United States.

Please note: all Fiskars rain barrels can be upgraded by purchasing the advanced DiverterPro system (model 5962; sold separately).



Both downspout diverter systems are designed to work with standard 2-by-3-inch or 3-by-4-inch downspouts.

Distinctive Smart Designs

Consumer research helped drive the development of these functional, distinctive designs. The back of the barrels sit flush against the exterior of the home, while neutral colors blend well with nature and most exterior home finishes.

How much rain will I collect?

The amount of rain your Fiskars Rain Barrel System will collect depends on two things: The amount of rain that comes down on your roof, and how much roof area drains into the gutter and downspout where you've installed the diverter. As an example, if you have a 500-square-foot roof section feeding a downspout, it will take about two tenths of an inch of rain to fill a 52-gallon barrel. A roof area of only 1000 square feet can provide approximately 600 gallons of water during a one-inch rainfall.



Convenient space below spigot for easily filling watering cans.

With the drought in Texas, it has proven its worth.

When it warps and torques a tiny bit from the heat that's nearly impossible.

I have rigged up a siphon, and it works pretty well.

It does take effort and tools to install, but that's not the real issue -- the top tends to warp on hot days, pop off the barrel and is difficult to put snugly back -- important if you don't want a breeding ground for bugs! It's not enough to weigh down the top -- you have to carefully line it up for a snug fit. When it warps and torques a tiny bit from the heat that's nearly impossible.

I was worried when the box arrived from Amazon - it was two boxes taped together and it looked a bit misshapen and worse for wear. Inside, everything was in fine shape however. The downspout diverter is wonderful but the two sizes you get are both made for rectangular downspouts. If your gutters have square downspouts (and a lot of vinyl ones are square) you will have to replace it for the diverter to work. Set up was easy once we read the instructions (yes, you have to do that or it will not work) and we are ordering a second today to connect to it.

My wife bought two of these last summer and I've never seen any other rain barrel that has been designed this well. Rather than rain water pouring in through a mesh screen on the top (which can clog with leaves, allow sunlight in, and also bugs) this barrel's lid is totally covered and airtight. Rain water enters through a hose on the side connected to the downspout until the barrel is filled. Any overflow goes back through the downspout. Check out the pictures showing a close up of the downspout attachment. It's a great design. The whole barrel is very attractive, much more so that many others. Nice product. We have the two barrels connected together cross feeding a single spigot.

When I bought this I was a little skeptical, however after installing it I have to say it's a great product. I attached a soaker hose to the spigot and my plants get watered when I'm at work! Plus no increase in my water bill!!! There is some work to do, cutting into your rain gutter, but that was to be expected. Overall great product!

The plastic that the barrel is made of is too thin and certainly not worth even the sale price. I suspect the barrel plastic will not last very long if it is left in the sun over several years.

Excellent System! Not as easy to install as I had hoped...but once we got it figured out all was smooth sailing. Excellent price and free shipping! Can't beat that with a stick.

I agree with the other writers about the quality of the product, though I don't have it attached to a downspout. I have a waterfall off the roof which fills the barrel in 20 minutes.

My problem. How do you get the last several inches of water out of the barrel? The spigot is located 10" up on the side, I assume to make room to put a hose on it easily. This leaves 10" of water in the barrel at all times. I have rigged up a siphon, and it works pretty well. If this is necessary, why hasn't anyone else mentioned it? And why doesn't the manufacturer include this in the instructions? Or has no one taken the lid off and looked inside to see the standing water? If there is a better solution, I would love to hear it. Thanks.

This rain barrel does the job! Looking like true terracotta, it blends nicely with our planters outside. We grow flowers, fruits & vegetables as well & conserve water for our gardens with the rain caught in this rain berrel.

Thank you so much, Fiskars for this product!
