I love the look of this rain barrel; it compliments the natural surroundings outside. Easy set up and decent size water capacity. I haven't had it long enough to go through a rain cycle, but I fear that the overflow port will not accomodate a heavy rainfall, which means water will run out the top and around the barrel. I have two other barrels by a different manufacturer that have large 3 1/2" overflow ports. I plan on converting this one using a fitting to make a larger port for this problem. The barrel was more economical than my others and much more attractive, so I don't mind the extra effort to customize the problem. Will most likely purchase another. Attached pics show barrel and the original overflow port.

The new brass spigot did not fit into the opening. There were no threads in the barrel to fit the spigot. I had to force it in but will see if it stays water tight...

    Comments about RTS Wood Grain Resin Flat Back Rain Barrel:

    Anyone who can get that spigot in there first try without stripping the plastic treads should buy a lottery ticket. 20+ tries, following "the lay it on its side so as not to strip the treads" directions and it is crooked and leaking.I can fix it but why go cheap there?
    The top is fixed so it does not remove. The screen fell inside....not an easy recovery mission.
    But....the pros....it is handsome and the flat back allows it to fit nicely against a wall. The brass spigot is very good quality.

      Finally! A nice looking rain barrel! It arrived ahead of schedule, was easy to set up and works great. From a short distance, it looks Like a real wooden barrel. Used a little plumber's tape around the faucet to prevent any leaking.

        Customer Q & A

        6 Questions About This Product
        Q: "Where does overflow water come out of and is there a way to take overflow water away from the foundation?"
        A: You can take an old piece of garden hose and a threaded nipple and thread it into the overflow location.
        Q: "Do you sell an attachment for the overflow valve, that can attach to a hose?"
        A: Unfortunately we do not have an attachment of this sort available for sale at this time.
        Q: "Is the spigot brass or plastic? I see you indicate that it has been improved; however reviews indicate concern?"
        A: The spigot supplied is brass. In the past this rain barrel did use a plastic one, but it has been improved and upgraded to brass.
        Q: "In Better Homes and Gardens magazine they have a picture of your RTS wood grain barrel. Their picture shows a different spigot. Can you explain that?"
        A: We think that article is showing the old style plastic plastic spigot. Now this rain barrel comes with a better quality brass spigot.
        Q: "Does a garden hose fit the spigot?"
        A: Yes it will.
        Q: "Is the brass spigot 3/4" NHT national hose thread?"
