This rain barrel is ready out of the box, the spigot is already attached, and the overflow valve is at the top. By comparison, the Algreen Cascada, which I also have, requires you to attach the spigot (with Teflon tape), attach a hose to the bottom, and set up the overflow hose yourself (and can't be used at all until you do).

I planned to use the Kyoto as a rain barrel in our garden for food crops, so I was NOT catching water from the roof for this purpose. This barrel has a much better configuration for the purpose for which I intend it. It is also a little cheaper. Cons: the open top does have a "screen" of sorts for bugs, but the holes are too big; I plan to attach actual screen to it, as others have suggested. The screen also attaches to the top with tiny built-in tabs, which don't really hold it; I plan to attach some sort of screw or nail so that the top doesn't pop off.

The biggest concern I have--and I've edited this review to reflect this--is that the rain barrel comes with a warning not ONLY not to consume the water, but to wash one's hands after handling the water. I presumed that the water wouldn't be potable if diverted from a roof, but this warning certainly implies that the water isn't safe for watering plants, and that this is due to the plastic. I assume, then, that this plastic has BPA and that it isn't heat-stable. If that's NOT the case, the warning should be more specific. Whatever the case, I'm quite disappointed.

For my purpose this 75 gal water barrel rocks! I online shopped many barrels, but I just needed a glorified pretty bucket. At the time of purchase, [..] had these for $179, while amazon's price was $[...]. Neither charged shipping. At that price this one wins on the dollar per gallon count, but it isn't as fancy.
Almost every other barrel out there is based on diverted rain/gutter water. This one has no such system. Just a screen to catch leaves, which I'm going to augment w/ a window screen for bugs (or killer goldfish MUUHAHAHA). I don't have gutters & don't want to pay or take the time to install them just for a rain barrel. . . I just park this one about where all the water comes off the roof & BAM! it works!
I'd love to have a 300 gal water barrel w/ fancy diverter. But I'm not watering the whole yard. I'm just catching some grey/rainwater that'll be used for small stuff. It's also way more attractive than some blue industrial barrel. Just yank it outa the box and you're ready to go. Oh one bad thing.
I had zero choice on the color. It's the brownish and I wanted the off white. I can live w/ that.
Simple idea. Looks pretty. Handles small jobs for a smaller price.
jeeez I sound like a friggin car salesman, but I'm that happy with it.

I did a huge amount of research before buying a rain barrel and decided on the Kyoto 75 for a number of reason.

* It has an overflow.
* It has two bottom drainage openings.
* It has an open top - I do not have a downspout from a gutter system and this was to sit under a converging roof point.
* It doesn't look like a rain barrel.
* It is weather resistant, so I do not have to move it seasonally.
* Its 75 gallons and one of the larger sizes, but measure it before you buy as it is big. The 55 gallon version is the same width, but about a foot shorter.

The barrel came in a huge cardboard box, so there was no damage. It was wrapped in plastic and arrived on time as well.

The opening at the top is semi-covered as there is a plastic center piece and three ribs that extend from it to the rim. This hold the black 'screen' like top in place. That screen works great and lets water in, but the holes in it are round and a little large. I cut out a round window screen and placed it under the black one. Now no little pieces of debris get in. That also ensures no mosquitos either. I also wanted this more for drainage than for water reuse, so I followed what another commenter had written and purchased a Gilmour Full Flow Aluminum Connector AS1FFM. I attached that to the lower drainage opening and used its black cap to screw onto the copper drainage spout. This with a 50 foot Gilmour hose and it is perfect for continuous drainage.
Lastly, I bought 12 pavers from Home Depot for the barrel to sit on which again someone else here already recommended. It sits level and the pavers add a needed finish to the setting.

To recap.
* Added a flow valve that screws directly into the lower drainage opening.
* Connected a hose to the flow valve.
* Cut a round patio screen to sit under the black top.
* Placed 12 pavers under the barrel to finish and level it.

Excellent rain system. Couldn't be happier.

I have purchased two of the Kyoto 75-Gallon rain barrels. I recommend this size over the smaller barrel because of its larger capacity. I was surprised at how quickly each barrel can fill up.

* Barrel design and finish resemble expensive pottery.
* No special tubes are needed to hook up the barrel, simply re-route your gutter's downspout.
* Barrel has a metal faucet.
* Barrel has an overflow drain at the top and another drain at the base besides the attractive metal faucet.
* Faucet is just high enough for filling my watering can.
* Amazon delivery was very prompt.

* None at this point.
