The product is well made but... the learning curve then comes in. You MUST elevate this rain barrel at least 1-1/2 to 2ft high if you want any pressure at all. Which to say is minimal at best. It works great as a filler for water jugs and as for soaker hoses but not with nothing else. Also you might want to attach an additional screenon the lid if you are by any trees and want clean rain water; it tends to clog and go directly in the barrel. Also works great with another barrel attached to it. Had a lot of rain so far this year.

I love this rain barrel. It is very well made, sturdy. It was easy to assemble & looks great too. We have already ordered a 2nd one. It holds 50 gallons but fills up with a good rain. We placed it on one layer of cinder blocks which is plenty of height to drain well all the way to the bottom.

Easy to set up and install. Filled up with first rain storm and the second storm the overflow hose kicked in. Pressure from hose is awesome and works very well.

Well I bought for a unique purpose, as a condensation catcher for my window A.C and it is perfect! The rain barrel was easy to assemble, looks neat and is easy to use the saved water for my plants and keeps my patio bone dry now as the condensation is all collected in the barrel.
Rated 5 out of 5 by kanorak Works well
Easy assembly. Clear concise instruction manual. It collects rain well- I don't have mine connected to a gutter downspout. Extra expense: the instruction manual recommends that you buy 12 cinder blocks and 2 pavers to get optimal drainage from the Suncast 50-Gallon Rain Barrel .

Great product for those who are not good with a nail and hammer. Just put it under a down spout to your home. Thats easy!!!!!!!

We purchased this rain barrel to catch water that drips from our swamp cooler. The hose leads to our tree, so the water goes where it is not being wasted. We will be purchasing another rain barrel & it looks nice.

I love the style. It is well made. It meets all of our needs.

Amazing how fast you can collect 50G, I bought two and could fill many more in just a 15-20 downpour.
Build a high base ( cinderblocks, etc...) to increase water pressure.
Rated 5 out of 5 by smellycat We have not had much rain to truly test this product but I am excited about using it to store and collect rain water.
Rated 5 out of 5 by sissy521 love it!
My community where I live sold my water system and now I will be metered. Paying for every drop of water I use is obscene so buying this rain barrel will help out a lot in the summer. I love my gardens and lawn and I will not let them go because of this issue I will be purchasing another one next spring
Rated 5 out of 5 by ffrr44 excellent product
I purchased a 50 gal. rain barrel and it is perfect for my needs. Well built and sturdy.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lululeelee Great rain barrel
Love this rain barrel! Needed an extra hand to install lower spout, but not a big deal. Works great and looks great. Very very happy.

I read other reviews before buying this barrel and a couple of them warned about cracks and fractures in the corners. Three days after I set it up a cold front came through and temperatures dropped down to around freezing for two nights in a row. I covered the barrel with an old blanket to protect it from the cold (it was full from an all day rain) and when I checked it for leaks or other problems it was just fine. I am very happy with this purchase so far.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Servant07 Does meet the need.
Even though it is not as sturdy as a true rain barrel, It still will do the job of containing rain water.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Vonnie932 Not durable to last more than 1 plus years
I purchased the Suncast 50 Gallon Barrel the summer of 2011. Installed and lasted throughout 2012 but last week I discovered that it cracked over the winter I guess so no water was collected when I attempted to use it on April 6, 2013. The winters and summers proved to much for this product.

A large part of my yard is garden and it takes a lot of water to keep it happy. after 1 moderate rain the barrel was half full. Now my gardens get untreated water which makes them very happy, and I keep money in my pocket every month when the water bill comes. I also saved a great deal in shipping fees by having it ship free to my local Walmart. Other stores wanted $50.00 for shipping! This has just been a terriffic savings all the way around and so environmentally sound. I love it and am as happy with it as the flowers in my gardens and the Wildlife that visit!!!
Rated 3 out of 5 by Pipercan One of the lower cost models but it does function well for the most part.
