Product Description

Color: Wood Grain

Embrace nature's solution to our emerging water shortage--collect rainwater! When drought sets in and rain is short, rain barrels can provide that precious water you need for your lawn and garden. Our authentic oak barrel texture is molded into each barrel and will not fade, rot or risk insect infestation. The RTS Accents rain barrel has many unique features including a flat back to sit flush against a wall, linkable to other rain barrels for increased capacity, screen to keep out debris and insects, and a shut off valve for hose hook up with dual overflow. This rain barrel can provide up to 50 gallons of pure unchlorinated water. During heavy rain falls, a typical roof can produce hundreds of gallons of water and by saving that water, you can reduce your average water usage. With those kinds of savings, this rain barrel can pay for itself in just a few seasons. A front side overflow keeps water from flooding against your outside wall. It is recommended that you drain your barrels when temperatures approach the freezing point. Optional barrel stands create a larger offset between the spigot and the ground, making it easier to fill watering cans and for general use. Wood grain.

I purchased this barrel last summer based on its great looks. I have had compliments on how good it looks. However, after the first rain fall, the barrel filled and I noticed the back 'bowed' badly. This pushed the barrel away from the house wall and when I finally emptied it, the damage was done and it is now permanently bowed. Also, the faucet is cheap plastic and the threads no longer attach well to my hose. Not a quality item - sad because it looks so good.

This barrel is a good value if you don't have the space to hide used water "totes." The barrel bows out at the back about 3 inches when full so don't install this directly against a wall. Before screwing in the brass spigot, lay the barrel on its back and triple check you have the spigot straight before committing to installing it as it is easy to strip the threads. Expect to use a pipe wrench to completely install it. To daisy chain additional barrels, you'll have to trim a portion of the extruding tabs and place tubing with a 1" inside diameter between the barrels. There is no way to connect a hose to the overflow hole on the front of the barrel so consider installing the barrel on a water heater drain pan.

Here is everything I learned about rain water harvesting:

Before you move forward with a rain harvesting project, understand that while you may save water, you're unlikely to save money. Even in drought-stricken California, my Tier 2 water rate (out of 4 tiers) has me paying $0.002 per gallon. That's 20 cents for 100 gallons of water. Check your water rates and any available barrel rebates if saving money is your main objective.

Plants prefer rain water over chemically-treated tap water, and the idea is to fill and empty your rain barrels throughout the winter in between storms, rather than fill them once to empty in the summer. This way, you can potentially save hundreds or even thousands of gallons of water throughout the year.

There are three main challenges involved with harvesting rain water: collection, storage and distribution. To really impact your water usage, you must have quite an extensive system.

I love the look of this barrel. 2 annoying things though, 1) The overflow is right at the front which detracts from the look of the barrel when a hose is attached. 2) Also, when it is full of rain, it expands and the back 'bowes' out. As mine was positioned quite close to the house wall, it caused the barrel to 'push' out against the wall and ended up tilted slightly. It is still full of water right now and I hope it goes back to the original shape when empty.

2 rain storms later this 50 gallon rain barrel was full. Love the whiskey barrel look. Mine came with the brass spigot. Not the cheap plastic one many of the other customers received. The water leaked around the spigot a little so I ended up buying plumbers tape and all-weather silicone caulk to seal it. No biggie. The stand suggested RTS Home Accents 5510-000110-8020 50-Gallon Rain Water Collection Barrel Stand to be paired with is a piece of crud. One side crumpled from the weight of the full barrel. You would think they would make it to support the full weight.

Read many reviews before purchasing this product- decided to proceed since this barrel received good reviews on Hayneedle.com & Walmart.com; felt perhaps some incidents could have been isolated (luck of shipping or luck of receiving a more defective one of the bunch); last my needs were also a bit different in that we are using this to store shower water we collect while our shower heats up (i.e. not directly under a drain spout).

PROS:
The barrel aesthetic looks nice.
It holds water w/o leaking.

CONS: Previous reviewers were all correct in that:
1.) The spigot arrived with 1 handle broken.
The manufacturers place it in the barrel to ship- instead of taping it to the side or wrapping packaging around it. It bounces around during shipping and arrived broken.

2.) It was quite difficult to screw the spigot into barrel. The hole wasn't cut well- after using a wrench and some force- we were able to force it. Good news is that it does not leak.

3.) The barrel back is bowing out once 3/4 to 4/4 full. Don't feel it will recover once emptied.

ADDITIONAL NOTES-
4.) Please note- you cannot lift the lid off the top. The only way to extract water from the barrel is through the spigot or tipping the barrel over.

5.) The only thing I haven't experienced is the barrel fading. However, we've owned this for 1 month during a Wisconsin March. Sun exposure is not strong- so I'm not confident we won't also experience this issue (per other reviews).

6.) Didn't purchase the barrel base due to very poor reviews- instead are using cinder blocks.

OVERALL- I'm happy with the idea and ability to save water, more then the product itself.

Like the look of barrels. Has a few flaws. Spigot on front was plastic rather than brass as was shown on web. Plastic one too low to use to fill most watering cans and hoses don't attach to it. Also cannot completely empty barrel since spigot is lowest drainage point. Back too thin so when barrel fills the back bulges out pushing barrel away from wall against which it is sitting.
