I use it to store rainwater that collects on our pool cover. I'm planning on getting more rain barrels to hook up to our roof rain-gutters. Although I could use a larger size, this size works as far as fitting into tight spaces near the rain-down-spouts. The 60 gallon is also small enough to move (carefully) when full. The spicket looks a little high. I haven't used the spicket, but it seems that if you hook a hose up to it, there will be quite a bit of water at the bottome once the water level is below the spicket.

These rainbarrels have all the right features, but the 2 most important are limited in functionality. The spigot is so high up on the barrel that you can only use half of the water in it. Both the main valve and the overflow valve are so small, that more rain comes in than can get out, so it is also not terribly functional. I am ultimately having to do all the valve plumbing myself with new valves, so the extra expense of this barrel with the features is unwarranted.

    Comments about Great American Rain Barrel Great American Painted Rain Barrel:

    This is a nice functional rain barrel but they have been previously used as shipping containers and they are a little banged up under a fresh coat of paint. One of the barrels I received had a crack in it, but Hayneedle made good on my purchase and refunded my money. The spigots are also of low quality but overall it's a good value as compared to other rain barrels.

        Comments about Great American Rain Barrel Great American Painted Rain Barrel:

        So far (after a period of fairly light rain only) the water barrels work as expected. They are set up with one feeding into the second one, once the first one is full. The connecting hose (not included) has to be in a position "just so" for the overflow to work, but once the hose has been positioned correctly, it works fine. During heavy rain, I suspect a lot of water will flow down the sides rather than through the fairly small holes on top. We had some water go over the side even during the light rain, but it managed to collect a lot of the water pouring from the rain spout. If the sides surrounding the top of barrel were taller, more rain water would have a chance of making it into the barrel rather than down the outside, soaking the ground around it.

            I didn't expect to receive it so quick. It's look just like the picture on line. It has all the functions I need. Couldn't wait to put it to use. But I'll wait until the weather is warmer(2 or 3 months later).

              These are great for collecting rainwater, for dispensing it, and for storage. We even got another to hook up to the first so we can collect the overflow. Now we can water our plants that otherwise would dry out between rains.

                I ordered the rain barrel as a second one to attach to the same rain barrel that I received free from the DEP and NYC. I noticed that the barrel fills up quickly during a heavy downpour, and so I purchased a second barrel. It should reduce my water bill! It was easy to install, and is very durable. I'm glad that I made this investment!

                  First of all the top unscrews. I have no idea why someone cannot figure that out. Simple. You can use a hose at the bottom and a spigot higher up. It came with different spigot attachments depending on what you want to do. It works great. I am very happy with it. In fact, we are getting another one as it fills up fast. You will need to buy the downspout converter separately. My husband had no issues in setting it up.

                  1 Question About This Product
                  Q: "How do you completely empty barrel with spigot so high?"
                  A: We recommend once the water falls below the spigot line unscrew the lid and dunk the bucket or Watering Can  to extract the remaining water. There is also another hole below the spigot (hidden by the plant in the image) that allows for drainage.
