It works like a charm! It holds the water and the gaskets don't leak. What else could I want the thing to do?
I'm sure the cheap plastic spigot will leak eventually but so what ---- I'll run down to Lowe's and get a good one.
I have another rain barrel (can't recall the brand) and wanted a second one so I could capture and store more water but when I went to purchase another the price had gone up by $50! That wasn't going to happen. So I bought this one instead and retrofitted it to be fed from my other one which is already tapped into the gutter system. Happily I did NOT screw the heights up when drilling a hole in the existing rain barrel or this one would have overflown --- even though that really wouldn't have bothered me at all because of where I keep them (out back near the garden area). So I am happy with my rain barrels and for the price this 60 gallon one is perfectly fine. ****can't exactly recall what I paid for this one --- I think right around $100 or so (I am doing this review a couple of months after I got and installed it). Its review night I guess lol..... I was reviewing other stuff I bought and this was on the list too so decided I would toss my 2 cents worth into the mix too. So there u go.
The main complaint and reason for the rating however is the giant amount of mosquitoes this thing incubates. Althought my lid is locked per manufacturer specs I can slap the side of the barrel and watch mosquitoes fly out of the "locking" area. I've contacted Earthwise about this and will update if they give any info on my problem. I imagine if I were to flip lid over and use it as a planter it may seal better, but looks like a design flaw to me. (I have RS65 model which is same as one pictured except grey instead of black... not sure where Amazon gets the RS-001 model number from)
