First off, unless you have an airtight barrel, completely airtight that is, you can't use it in "optimal" configuration. So, if you went out and found a recycled barrel, and let's face it, most of us probably looked at the price of a commercial new barrel and balked. I got mine at the local car wash dumpster as it's how they receive their detergent. Since I needed to mount a hose bib(spigot), the lid had to come off. Now that there's no airtight lid, that means the "optimal" configuration goes out the window. Not a huge deal, but I feel like I just reduced the utility of things somewhat out of necessity of design.
The hose that comes with it now needs to route into the barrel. If you're buying this kit, you're not getting the fittings to do this on your own. So off to the hardware store we go. Now while the plastic hose that comes with it probably would be fine for a while, it seems kind of thin and flimsy. Something that might not hold up to the elements after a season or two. So while I'm there, add in a 1.25" ID piece of tubing...that stuff is expensive(~$3/foot). Now don't forget hose clamps, it doesn't come with any though the instructions themselves recommend them to "prolong life" of the product.
So unless you want the hose to just drip water through the open barrel top(or lack thereof), you might want to mount it cleanly. Add in a bulkhead fitting, reducer, nipple, hose barb, and spade bit(if you don't have one) to your order. Don't forget the three cinder blocks, or similar, to sit your barrel on.
You can see pretty quickly, this $30 item can quickly double in price real quick. The fact that I'm only using the singular piece of injection molded plastic which can't contain more than $1 in material makes me really less than thrilled with this purchase. Admittedly, some of this is my choice, and they do sell more advanced kits, but for these prices I'd rather kludge something together so I know what I'm getting.
Now is that the fault of the manufacturer? Probably not entirely, but I don't think they're being entirely fair with one of two things; either the price, or the description of what you're getting. I think if this were a $10 - $15 purchase, I'd feel a lot better about giving it a 4 or 5 star rating.
The problems probably follow every other similar item at the same price point, however, so it's not a function of this manufacturer.
Ultimately, I'm sure once I have it all assembled and functional, I'll be quite happy and it'll do what I want it to do, but please be aware your barrel and the contents of this box are almost definitely not going to be enough to have you watering your begonias straight away. YMMV.
would be to include a removable hose screen to catch debris like the needles from Evergreen trees.
The reason I only gave it four stars is a little plastic cap. The bottom of this unit has a connection for two hoses. I placed a hose on one and a provided plastic cap on the other. The first winter this cap filed with water, froze and cracked. The cap now falls off every time it rains and the water ends up around my home.
I attached the cap with superglue and it now only leaks through the Crack in the cap.
Warm climates may not have this problem.
Other than that it seems to be a good product. I have had it about 3 years.
I like this product and hopefully I am helping the enviromnent.
