Description

Finally, a rain barrel that doesn't look like a rain barrel! If you've put a lot of care into your landscaping, have a persnickety homeowners' association, or just don't love the aesthetics of traditional rain barrels, check out the WaterStone Rainwater Collection System. Cleverly masquerading as a boulder, the WaterStone rain barrel blends right into your landscape. Unlike an ordinary yard decoration, the WaterStone helps you save money, reduce your water usage, and irrigate your lawn and garden with fresh, chemical-free water.

Use the included downspout diverter kit to attach the WaterStone to your rain gutter. After about two hours of moderate rainfall, your handsome lawn ornament will be filled with rainwater. Attach a soaker hose to the WaterStone to direct your water to a nearby garden, or save it for a sunny day. Rain barrel water is perfect for watering plants, washing cars, or just about anything you would normally do with water from a hose. Need more than 40 gallons of water at a time? Get a collection of WaterStones, link them together, and build a robust irrigation system without your neighbors suspecting that you're running a bootleg whiskey distillery.

Actually no stars would be my rating. The holes in the "rock" are in wrong sides. The hole to insert the tube is in the back of the stone and has to bend to connect to the downspout diverter. There's no way to place the stone in position for a straight tube connection to the diverter as the directions stipulate. Also, all the pictures show the "spigot" to be in front. The one we received has the spigot on the low side edge which is very inconvenient and would be only a few inches from the house foundation (if it were on the front, it could be 20+ inches from the foundation.) Very disappointed that we cannot hook up and use this system on the downspout for which we bought it and it won't fit our other downspout situations either. Will have to find another type of barrel with a different diverter system. Save yourself money and aggravation and look for something else.

Comments about WaterStones Rescue 40 Gallon Rainwater Collection System:

When they make this rock, they ground down the edges around the bottom to shape it. The material gets very thin there so if they ground too far they cause small holes which just looking at it you can't see. Since it didn't rain right away we didn't know this and my husband threw the box away so we couldn't ship it back. He wasn't happy! It had 2 small holes that he fixed. Well, it rained again and now we found more holes that need to be fixed. If this were a $30.00-$40.00 product it wouldn't seem as bad. This item needs to be inspected better by the companies quality control before they ship them!!
I already have 2 fiskars rain barrels in the back of my house and I love them! I wanted another one for the front so I wouldn't have to run a hose through the garage to water everything out there. The granite looking rock would have been my first choice for color, but I wanted one that connected to the down spout instead of it just being a big open hole on the top. We'll get it to work if he has to patch the whole edge along the bottom.

Comments about WaterStones Rescue 40 Gallon Rainwater Collection System:

Looks good, easy to install. Picture shows outlet hose on the side. Mine had outlet in front ( or back ) depending how it's set. Makes it easier to install on right or left of downspout.
Very pleased with product. Bob

      This is the second rainbarrel of this style. Attractive and easy to install. The diverter was included in the price.
      No problem attaching the diverter to the drain pipe. LIke the
      fact that the overflow goes down the drain pipe, not spilling over the top like some styles.
