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.

It works fine. However, the spicket is set up high, which leaves unused water in the bottom. I wish there was a drain so I could get it out, without having to clean it. Also the screen could be tighter, to keep in/out mosquitos. I like the color and style. It looks great in our front yard.

    Easy to install. My only problem is there is no way to easily access the inside of the barrel to determine how much water is inside. The barrel needs an access door on the lid.

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

      I work as a Variety Specialist in the Hayneedle Care Center and like to purchase products I sell to make sure I'm advising the customer correctly. I purchased 2 of these rain barrels along with the stands GID019. They are sturdy and the brass spigots were great quality. The color will not fade in the Summer sun. I look forward to using them for many years. They hold enough water for flowers and other plants. I like the stands because it raises the spigot high enough to put a bucket under it.

          My order was delivered a week early. The rainbarrel was delivered in perfect condition. Nice that it has a flat back and will fit close to the wall. The screen will keep out debris and bugs, especially mosquitos. I was impressed by the quality brass spigot provided. It is manufactured so that the internal washer can be easily replaced. I expect to use this for many years.

                Nice rain barrel. Easy to install. The only negative was that it was VERY easy to cross-thread the spigot which led to leaks and several attempts to fix. Finally ended up emptying it and caulking. That said it fits flush against the house and is a really nice-looking rain barrel.

                Customer Q & A

                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.
