    The most significant problem is that this was designed for beauty not functionality, and likely by someone who has never actually used a rain barrel. For instance the two overflow outlets only have small holes that could not handle any more than the flow from a very light rain and right between these two inadequate holes is a large gaping hole through which the cord for the pump feeds. I cut half of each of the overflow tubes off to provide adequate overflow capacity and reduce water running over the electrical cord. The other major problem was the adjustment on the pump to regulate how much water is pumped and the height of the fountain. If you turn it any higher than the lowest setting, you get so much water that it splashes water out of the top excessively which would cause the water to run out and potentially burn out the pump. I tried to adjust the pump six times before I gave up and settled for the lowest setting. The suckers on the bottom of the pump that are supposed to hold the pump down also do not grip sufficiently to work, but this does not effect the operation of the pump, luckily. Finally the instructions for assembly are practically non-existent with several references to parts that use a specialized terminology that few people will understand - unless your a professional plumber.

    Regardless of these problems all but one of which can be overcome, I plan to buy more of these fountain/rain barrels, but it seems like the flaws are rather silly and avoidable. The unit is quite attractive for a rain barrel. It has the advantage of gravity fed water for any plants below the level of the outlet in the base of the unit, or water under pressure by connecting a hose to the fountain head whereby you can water plants at any level above or below the outlet. Finally, the dual feature of a rain barrel that doubles as a fountain makes it an excellent value.

    The color is NOT what it depicted -

    Size and shape are pretty good but NOT good quality and the color is NOT pretty and it was not like in the picture.

      Packaging was flimsy. I found the hose hook in my front yard this morning. Very surprised to have all the parts! Easy to set up. Enjoying the fountain feature. I've wanted a rain barrel for years and have patiently shopped around. When I saw this one, I knew I had finally found what I wanted for a great price.

            Received this rain barrel and set it up in about 30 minutes, which included cutting my downspout. I was a little worrid when i received it, there was no filler material inside the beaten up box, but it's made of a durable material and no cracks occured. A few points I have noted:

            -Its made of a hard plastic, and there is a visible seam along the top, where the 2 peices are fused, which was easily sanded down. The first rain made the barrel bulge a little bit, but the shape and design made it nearly impossible to notice.

            -The spout is all the way on the bottom, so you can drain almost all of the water out of it, but i did prop it up on 2 levels of paver blocks so that it wasnt in the ground. The hose it came with worked fine, not leaking, and with teflon tape they supply with the barrel, it does a good job. I haven't gotten a 2nd one yet, but connecting 2 together doesnt seem like it'll be an issue

            -I opted for the pump/fountain. The pump is a little finicky to adjust, but once you get it at a level you want, you just drop it in and forget it. It turns on when plugged in, doesnt have a switch, but i plugged it into an outlet controlled by a swith, so no worries for me. The pump seems to circulate the water inside which is nice, as you wont have standing water in the barrel. Setting the fountain too high, causes some water to splash out when bouncing off the rocks so i recomend a lower setting. It has a nice sound and the pump isnt too loud, creates a very soothing atmosphere in the garden.
