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:

I set up the rain barrel Saturday morning in anticipation of the torrential, South Florida storm due that evening. On cue it arrived. When I checked the next day I had 25 gallons of free water ready to go after a couple days of sunshine and warm temperatures. The butterfly garden will never know that the watering is from a free source but I, and the water bill, will!
The barrel looks nice, peaking from behind a fire bush and milkweed plant. Great purchase, easy setup, and instant success.

        For the price this rain barrel is not much. It's really just a big plastic bottle. The picture looks like the top comes off for cleaning, but it doesn't. It looks like a metal mesh anti-mosquito pad on top, but it's plastic, too.

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

        Two years ago we installed rain barrels to catch rainwater to irrigate flower beds around the house. I purchased the Rain Wizard and have been very satisfied with the product. We are adding an addition and intend to have rain barrels collect additional rain water to again water the flowers and shrubs surrounding the new structure. As the addition was physically separate, I was not constrained with buying the exact same water barrel. However I was surprised to find the Rain Wizard, in the same color that matches the other barrels on sale from Hayneedle. Hayneedle uses Paypal for payment which I am very comfortable with as it provides additional security of the electronic payment. I also found that the prospective emails on shipping information to be very helpful. In fact I helped the FEDEX delivery man unload the cartons right intolkio my garage. In conclusion I found exactly the product I wanted, at a great price, paid for it with my preferred method and shipment was quick and well coordinated.

          Can't wait for it to rain. The barrel looks nice and hopefully will enable me to keep watering my plants and especially trees after a rain. In drought areas like southern California everyone should have these. I have four.

                  Ordered 2. Arrived as promised. No install instructions. Removed screws and retrieved valve. threaded in easily. Cut out hole had not been deburred, and there were plastic shavings inside the barrel, which had to be flushed out before the unit could be used. A female to female hose adapter is required to connect barrel to outside spicket to flush the barrel, which would have not been necessary if it had been properly deburred, and didn't have a lot of shavings left inside from mfg process. Both barrels had the same problem.

                  Customer Q & A

                  12 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: "I live in Ohio and I was wondering if the barrel needs to be taken in during the winter months or is it strong enough to stay outside with the snow?"
                  A: The barrel can be left out during the winter so long as you cover it to prevent water from getting in and also drain it completely of water.
                  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?"
                  A: This product is completely manufactured in Pennsylvania.
                  Q: "Can the flat back be attached to the wall?"
                  A: We do not recommend attaching the back of this rain barrel to a wall.
                  Q: "How much does the rain barrel weigh when it is completely full?"
                  A: This rain barrel will weigh around 450 lbs when compltely full of watter.
                  Q: "Is the top lid removable?"
