Less than 2 years and the bottom has a BIG crack

"The life of this product should be greater than just 2 years! I noticed the barrel was empty and decided to fill it so that I would have warmer water to water my plants. Then I noticed a big stream of water going out the bottom of the barrel and down the driveway! The barrel hasn't been moved since the day I purchased it and it is on a base stand. Very disappointed in the quality of this product."

Great Rain Barrel, Bad Valve

,

By Broncoguy

"The rain barrel works great. The back bows out when it is full of water, but this seems to be typical of this style. The brass valve does not work because when it is threaded into the barrel the handle hits the barrel. I purchased new valves and now the barrel works great. I would have rated the barrel 5 stars if the valve worked."

Rain Barrel

from Concord, NC
"we bought this flat back barrel to put in the front of the house where it would be seen from the road. It looks great and does exactly what we intended for it to do. It provides the water for our small garden plot, we had great tomato's and peppers this year thanks to the water supply."

"It is made of heavy duty plastic . The large screen opening fills the barrel better than ones with small openings, which is good on light rain days if you use as much rain water as we do. It is our 2nd one of this barrel model of 4 barrels that we now have."
