The BIG Blue is simply the best rain saving product for the money. Only [$]buy's this 55-gallon rain saving device, it come almost fully assembled (the spigot, which is brass, must be assembled) and is ready to use. It is made from durable PE resin and the barrel is recycled! How about that, a recycled barrel to recycle rainwater! That is just how this product rolls.... two for one!I highly recommend this product to anyone who would like to save and reuse rainwater for an economical price. The barrel has two ways to get the water out. Simply use the spigot, or attach a garden hose to the bottom. These ports can be interchangeable. All you need to do is to put the spigot on the bottom and plug the top or visa versa.Good luck and happy rainsaving.

I purchased two of these rain barrels. When I opened the boxes, they were roughed up and dirty--almost like they were used. One was dented. There were no instructions on where to put the different items that arrived in little pouches. The only thing I recognized was the nice spout. When I contacted the company, they were quick to respond--a very good thing--and said they would replace my units. I really wanted something catching the rain--not for under the gutter--unsure if this works for that reason.

              Comments about Good Ideas Recycled Big Blue Plastic Rain Barrel:

              When the barrel is full the overflow can't be controlled. The hosebibb supplied has almost no flow. You can't access the water if you want to just dip a watering can or bucket. Not a good investment. Bought two and basically only use them as overflow for the ones I bought locally for the same price.

                This is slightly different than the rain barrel I already have. The one I have now has a piece on it that lets extra water still go into the downspout.
                This one does not and doesn't come with directions of how to hook it up the the downspout. Do I cut it?, do I need another piece?, will it overfill with a lot of rain and pour all over?

                Rain Barrel arrived with two holes in the side and only one faucet. It did not even have a way to plug the second hole. I was able to go to the hardware store and buy a second faucet which allows me to water two areas at once, which is nice but it required additional effort. Beyond that, product is made of sturdy plastic and is functional after the repair.

                    I bought 2 to transport water to the hunting ranch and store it. Use a small DC pump to pump it from the full barrel in the truck to an empty one next to the new shower.
                    Works great.

                    Very sturdy and quite clean with just a few minor scuff marks. The bottom hole would be more useful lower down on the barrel to get more of the water out easier. My example had the hole higher than the one in the picture.

                      the barrels are light weight enough to move to proper locations when empty and are simple and useful and adjustable to any environment, they are incredibly affordable if you have priced any other rain barrels and functional, if you don't like the color you can alter that when you receive them by repainting or putting something of your own liking around them but I happen to like blue...

                        Customer Q & A

                        7 Questions About This Product
                        Q: "When this barrel becomes full of water where does the excess water flow? I don't see or read about any overflow hose being included with the product. Is there?"
                        A: This recycled barrel does not have the nice overflow that our Rain Wizard 50’s do.
                        Q: "why is the outlet (spigot) so high up on the barrell? How do you access all the water?"
                        A: You can access the water through the spigot or the small white drain farther down on the barrel.   The Spigot is set up higher for easy access.
                        Q: "Can the spout be relocated to the bottom of the barrel?"
                        A: The spigot is interchangeable between the lower hose location and the mid level “bucket” location.
                        Q: "How do you link more then one barrel together?"
                        A: Can be linked to other barrels with a link kit that is sold separately during checkout.
                        Q: "Your description indicates that the barrel is recycled from another manufactured use. Is it from a chemical shipment, paint, beer, or what?"
                        A: This barrel was previously used to store food-grade materials. When its job was done, it was converted into a rain barrel.
                        Q: "Where is this product produced? Is it made in the USA or is it an import?
                        A: No, this product is completely manufactured in Lake City, Pennsylvania.
                        Q: "Where is this product produced? Is it made in the USA or is it an import?
                        A: No, this product is completely manufactured in Lake City, Pennsylvania.
