    The set up was a breeze as it only took me about 15 minutes total to set everything up. I use it to store rain water for our plants on dry days.

    Simple to install and the kit came with everything you need except a drill. The deverter works great and when barrel is full the water bypasses and the water continues down the downspout from the gutter. Awesome product

    the holes are too large, which allows more leaking. I am quite handy, but had to buy gaskets to minimize leaking. the top hole is too high to use half the water; the bottom one a few inches too low to get a container under it, and it only catches part of the water from the downspout. I would NOT recommend this product. very disappointing. And, it came with a dented bottom thanks to poor handling at some point.

      Comments about Earth Minded 65gal. Granite Color Rain Barrel (PRN1001):

      This is the 4th one I bought. Living in dry Tucson it's a must for me to conserve water for plants and trees. Two of them I have joined together and don't have them as suggested but just let the rain drain right into the barrel. I like the larger than most 65 gal. It was easy to assemble with the spiget I can fill a bucket or put on a hose to use. With the over flow pipe I can join another one to it or let it run in a smaller barrel. It's much heavier material than most containers. Happy to also get a good price. Would highly recommend this product. J

      Barrel was easy to install. Can't really use faucet since it will loosen or pop off easily. Hose use pops off faucet. Looks good with house. Great for dipping bucket into barrel for water.

            Comments about Earth Minded 65gal. Granite Color Rain Barrel (PRN1001):

            Hafta be careful when cutting the leader if it's 3 x 4. because the circumference of the bit is almost 3". I had to use snips to finish cutting out the hole in the leader because it started to give way while drilling. Also used rubber grommets on each tap to secure the seals. I read a couple of reviews that panned this barrel because it leaked at the spigot and because the spigot was too low. But these are solved by using a rubber grommet, and using the upper hole for the spigot and the lower for the drain. I'm very happy with it and am ordering another.

                The barrel that I received had a warped top. I placed some rocks on top for 2 weeks which evened it out.
                The insert that funnels the water from the downspout into the tank covers a cross section of 2x3 inches, collecting virtually all the rain water coming down a 2x3 inch downspout. If you have a 3x4 inch downspout, the insert gets installed on the side of the drain, covering only half of the cross section. That means it will collect only half the water coming down from the roof.

                  I love my rain barrel. It is nice looking, and it was easy to install. I am slightly disappointed on the water pressure into a hose. I placed the faucet on the top hole. I then added a hose to the faucet. It has incredibly low water pressure. I was hoping to use the rain barrel to attach to my soaker hose, but it doesn't work. :( If you don't mind low water pressure, then hooking up a hose will work for you. I do want to add that I am going to try to switch out the faucet to the lowest hole setting and see if that helps with the pressure.

                    purchased 2 of these... 1 for each side of the house to water my plants. want my plants to thrive with rain water and not always have to drag out the house. they were easy to assemble (second one was easier than the first)within the first 2 rains both barrels were completely full. the diverter works great they do not overflow. they are huge and holds lots of water. I love them........ wish I had done this sooner. These barrels are the largest I could find. like the fact they have a drain at the bottom, many do not.

                              Assembly was easy, just read and follow the instructions. I used warm soapy water which made installation of rubber components much easier. Leveled and placed barrel on four concrete pavers and pea gravel. Barrel looks nice and I like being able to access from top, barrel color goes well with house. Waiting on first rain fall to check for leaks.
                              Barrel was shipped to local store which saved a few dollars.

                                  Great product. Easy to asseble. Didn.t have to use a downspout because the water just ran into the barrel from the opening in the gutter. The barrel filled up more than halfway just from the 7 inches of snow we had from the last storm.

                                    I picked up the rain barrel at my local ACE Hdwr.today, (with no delivery charges), and am installing it tomorrow. The total package, including diverter and other items are included at one reasonable price. Hopefully this will cut our municipal water bill significantly over last summer.

                                      New down spout method with equipment provided. Have yet to set up, but also has screen to invert top for conventional top feed by turning top over.

                                        Most rain barrels we looked at could only be filled from the spout. We like the ability to be able to open the lid and fill a watering can from the top.

                                          This easy to set up and use rain barrel is perfect in our drought ridden landscape. We set it up, luckily had a 2" rain and found the 65 gallon barrel full. Easy to fill a watering can or container from the spout lower on the barrel or to take off the top and dip the containers in. It's lightweight and the 'earthtone' color blends well. It IS large so you probably don't want it by the front door. I am more than pleased and am considering purchasing a second one next year.
                                          In the past we used a homemade 'rain' barrel with a screen as a cover. This is MUCH better.
                                          I had it shipped to our local store for free. Very Pleased with this product.

                                            The set up was a breeze as it only took me about 15 minutes total to set everything up. I use it to store rain water for our plants on dry days.

                                            Simple to install and the kit came with everything you need except a drill. The deverter works great and when barrel is full the water bypasses and the water continues down the downspout from the gutter. Awesome product

                                            Things that are not so great: NONE
