Product Description

Amazon.com

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.

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 placed your rain barrel. 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.

Saguaro Rain-Barrel System

The Fiskars Rain-Barrel System is an easy way to collect, store, and conserve water in style. A great size option for a condo or apartment, the Saguaro rain barrel holds 26.5 gallons of rainwater and offers temporary placement as it is not permanently installed, which means it can be effortlessly moved from one location to another. It's also exceptionally simple to set up and use--no need for cutting the gutter, as no diverter is used. System includes barrel, cover with screen, overflow hose, threaded spigot, and a detailed installation guide.

Features:
  • Wave pattern in design and neutral color blend well in a natural setting
  • Barrel and cover made of recyclable, UV-treated, impact-resistant polyethylene
  • Snap-on cover
  • Built-in screen helps keep debris out of your barrel
  • Overflow hose directs the water away when barrel is full
  • Threaded spigot for easy garden-hose attachment
  • Design allows for installation snug with house
  • Great size option to use at condo or apartment properties
  • Hang a rain chain above the screen opening for alternate method of rainwater collecting
  • Holds 26.5 gallons
  • Rain barrel made in USA
  • Limited 3-year warranty
Diverter
Diverter channels water from gutter downspout to the barrel.
Optional Accessories

Designed to easily integrate into your home's existing downspouts, Fiskars worry-free diverter kits (sold separately), 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.

Fiskars also offers the advanced DiverterPro system (model 5962; sold separately).

Save even more water with the Rain Barrel Connector Kit (model 5960; sold separately). Made of recyclable polypropylene, the optional kit includes one 19-1/2-inch connector hose and two connectors (connector, washer, nut) and carries a three-year limited warranty.

The connector kit makes it possible to link multiple Fiskars Rain Barrels together for additional rainwater collection and storage.

My choice for this particular Fiscars 5992 rain barrel was based on (1) the fiskar's reputation (2) the size as it was for inside my greenhouse and (3) the color. My greenhouse has a couple of places that leak enough to capture several gallons of water during heavy rains. The dark color to help heat the water filled barrel during the sunny day (I live in Arizona) to moderate temperatures during the cool night.

The one real negative on this product; the pictures shows this barrel as being wider at the top than the bottom and it is only on seeing this in person that you can see this could become an issue depending on how and where this barrel is used. I had to put it up on a stand and to me, this design makes it top heavy and am concerned about it tipping.

And I'm not thrilled with the plastic faucet/hose hook up! but so far, so good.

The top is secure, the screened opening means you can set this up in an area with a heavy drip (I've got one of those places where my gutter's need replacing) or outside and not worry about bugs, leaves, etc getting in. You don't need a diverter and secure connection. This will make it easier to collect water from my leaky greenhouse roof.

A little work is required for hooking up the overflow outlet, but nothing really difficult.

The price is very competitive, its well made, and the company offers a range of size options for the many different circumstances we all face.

This is my second summer with this rain barrel. I use it on a condo patio, and like the compact size and overhead collection. It has worked very well, with one major exception. The spigot will no longer fully close, and water trickles out all day long, unless I keep a separate bucket underneath to collect that. There appear to be no replacement spigots available from this manufacturer. I have purchased a spigot kit from another manufacturer, and will see if it works.

I have a walkway that goes around 1 side of my house . This is the most narrow rain barrel I could find w a low profile on the depth to fit b/t the walkway and the house at the corner where the downspout comes down. Luckily it's also right across from the new raised garden I built last week. I plan on hooking up a watering timer and a watering line system to it and letting the gravity flow feed the garden.

Nice looking - perfect size for our home - so far so good. We did not connect it to a gutter but it fills up nicely with Mother Nature's help
