The rain that we catch will be used to water our flower and vegetable garden by attaching a sprinkler hose and routing the rainwater to the needed places. In our area of the U.S. we endure drought conditions and water is needed for use other than gardens, etc. Our Rain Barrel will be our source of extra water for such.

Received four of these barrels, however, one barrel was a different model, arg! Still waiting to hear back from customer service on how to get the correct barrel. If you look at all the various pictures of this rain barrel, you will see the top screen held down by four to eight screws. I received one with eight screws, the others with four screws. I redistributed the screws holding down the screen from the primary barrel since I used a 4" round downspout connector. As you can see in pictures on this website with just four screws, the screen is puckered up and not laying flat like in pictures with eight screws. It looks like a large opening covered by screen, but it's only a 4 inch circle hole, centered near the back edge, the rest of the screen is just overlap, see pictures of my setup. The overflow hole screen picture shows four screws, mine only had two screws causing the ends to pucker out and look shabby. The top screen does not have uniform holes, it looks like half the punch was dull and did not fully perforate the material, and they are too small. The inside diameter of the overflow connectors are too small and should be larger in diameter to match the flow of downspout, like 3/4 or 1 inch inside diameter. To connect multiple barrels, you will need 3/4 inch inside diameter hose, I got some at Home Depot. Remember to stair step your barrels so the overflow will work better. That way the water will cascade down from higher elevated barrel to lower barrel. If you connect multiple barrels, they won't sit flush against your wall because the connector hoses, even cut to the shortest length, stick out from behind the barrel, so need an inch or so, offset from the wall. I'm glad I bought these on sale. They do look nice and the threads for the spigot are deep enough so they don't strip when screwing in metal on plastic threads.

            Comments about Good Ideas 50 Gallon Rain Wizard Flat Back Rain Barrel:

            The barrel is sturdy and the stand is a must. However, the spigot is completely inadequate. When I screwed it into the barrel, all the shavings went into the barrel. When I turned the spigot on, you just get a little more than a trickle. I would have to stand and wait for a few minutes until it filled my sprinkling can. I called them twice for help, but they never returned my messages. Poor customer service. I finally bought a 3/4" male hose adapter and attached a 3/4" hose bibb to that. Now it works great. Spent an extra $12 though.

                        I recently ordered this 50 gal rain barrel and I love it. After the first rain in weeks it was full after just a few hours. I would also like to point out that you should definitely order the stand as to be able to place a watering can by spigot.

                                  I am reasonably mechanically inclined and I know how to be careful not to cross-thread a bolt, but the receiving end of this barrel for the spigot is so soft the spigot will screw in easily without matching up to the threads of the hole. No matter how careful I was, I had no confidence it had matched up. The fruit of the effort was a leaky junction. After trying on two barrels, I gave up.

                                  I ordered and received four of these barrels. I think the quality is great, BUT, I have to say your workmanship in the minimal "assembly" lacks professionalism. Out of the four, one has a bad "threading" where the spiggot is screwed into. I think we can make it work, though. Also, I think it quite sloppy that ALL the debris of the screw holes is left in the barrel and it is difficult to rinse out. Also, I'd say 95% of the screw holes holding the screen are extremely crooked, one was stripped, and none of the screens (due to the crooked screw holes) sit really square in the depression made for its position.

                                  8 Questions About This Product
                                  Q: "Is the barrel BPA free?"
                                  A: Yes, this rain barrel is BPA free.
                                  Q: "Is this product resistant to cracking from the freezing-and-thawing of extreme Midwest temps?"
                                  A: It is resistant to very low temperatures, however we do recommend that you take the following steps to ensure the longevity of your rain barrel. "Empty or drain your rain barrel, remove spigot, run-off hose, and drain plug before storing for the winter. When possible store your barrel in a protected/indoor area but if the rain barrel must remain outside turn it upside down and secure it to prevent animal intrusion or water accumulation which can freeze, expand, and potentially crack the barrel wall."
                                  Q: "What about overflow?"
                                  A: There is a shut-off valve for hose hook-up or dual overflow.
                                  Q: "Does that top section lift off?"
                                  A: The top section does not lift off.
                                  Q: "Does this include the screen?"
                                  A: Yes, the screen is included.
                                  Q: "Can a hose attach to the overflow to divert the water further away from the foundation?
                                  A: The hose can be attached to the spigot.
                                  Q: "Can these be painted to match the house?"
                                  A: Yes, it may be painted but please be sure to use a paint intended for plastic surfaces.
                                  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.
