50 Gallon Flat Back Rain Barrel
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 Home 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.
Durable Hi Quality Brass Spigot
High Quality Brass spigot to provide years of trouble free use. The spigot includes a shut off valve and a standard hose thread to hookup any standard garden hose.
The aluminum framed screen will prevent bugs and fine debris from entering the rain barrel under normal use. Will not rust.
Hand Painted Bands
The Woodgrain barrel from RTS is sanded and hand painted to give you the most authentic looking rain barrel on the market. Because our barrels are cast from an actual whiskey barrel, you will have the most authentic looking rain barrel in the market.
Custom Molded Stand
Better than a cinder block or wood platform, the RTS Rain barrel stand will provide you with the custom fit for our flat back design - allowing you to flush the barrel and stand close to the structure for a snug fit.

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.Read more ›
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.
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.Read more ›

Worked well for us. Our spout was in a confined location that was well-suited for the flat back on this barrel. First weekend after we set it up we had enough rain to fill it. Read morePublished 9 days ago by The Beak
