    We are on well water so water conservation is critical. We bought 2 of these rain barrels and have connected them. When we have little rain our plants can still be watered with the collected water in our rain barrels. The rain barrel color blends well with the surrounding area so its unobtrusive.

    New barrel with a leak!

    Brand new out of the box and the first time it rains it has a leak through a pin hole near the base. Looks like porosity in the molded plastic. [...]

    Comments about Achla Designs 50-Gallon Resin Wood Grain RB-03 Rain Barrel:

    This is the second rain barrel of this design that I own. The compact design is very easy to tuck into a spot without being totally obtrusive. I added a tap to the first barrel, and will probably do the same with this one.

    Comments about Achla Designs 50-Gallon Resin Wood Grain RB-03 Rain Barrel:

    My barrel leaked rain water at the bottom.
    The repair was hard to reach.
    Scuffed the area and used silicone caulk.
    So far so good!!! The drain screen keeps
    insects and debrie out.

    Comments about Achla Designs 50-Gallon Resin Wood Grain RB-03 Rain Barrel:

    Nice design that fits into tight spots without sacrificing capacity. It fills up quickly in a Great Lakes summer and provides a nice steady supply of rainwater in our backyard (which lacks a wall spigot). We liked the drain hose being closer to the bottom of the barrel since we can get more water out--but not all of it. The hose clip is on only one side of the barrel; if you need it on the other side, you'll need to drill your own hole and mount it there yourself. Make sure it's situated on solid ground--any overflow can wash away its foundation and make the barrel start to tip.

          Comments about Achla Designs 50-Gallon Resin Wood Grain RB-03 Rain Barrel:

          I have had to attach a variety of hose applications to the barrel to effectively use the water that just comes too often during a rainy season. Otherwise the water is effectively wasted and can actually cause water to overflow the device and seep toward a foundation or basement. The overflow ports (2 or more needed) need to be enlarged and standard threaded attachements made available to direct the excess water efficiently.

            Comments about Achla Designs 50-Gallon Resin Wood Grain RB-03 Rain Barrel:

            I set up the rain barrel and have used it during each rain since. I mainly save the water for plants, but it can be used for car washing or other outdoor purposes. The rain barrel avoids run off, and with a mosquito dunk in the barrel it prevents breeding of mosquitos.

              Comments about Achla Designs 50-Gallon Resin Wood Grain RB-03 Rain Barrel:

              My new rain barrel was the best addition to my garden this year. It's unique dimensions let me fit a 50 gallon rainbarrel in a narrow spot allowing me to control the runoff during rain storms. I had a problem of my hill garden deteriorating each time it rained. By capturing the rain instead of letting it run downhill, I am able to maintain the look that I want for my hill garden while being able to distribute the rain water exactly where I want it. I couldn't be happier. Plus, the fact that the barrel is brown instead of green is a real plus. It blends into my landscape so much so that anyone passing by my house may not even know that it was there.
