Comments about Product: My husband and I set up the rain barrel urn a day or so before hurricane Sandy hit the east coast of the USA. Happy to say that it survived the storm. It caught the excess water saving my indoor/outdoor carpet.
Comments about Product: I do love it, but there are a couple design flaws. When it rains hard the water splashes off the screen and doesn't fill the barrel. The planter will never work, if you fill with dirt and plant flowers during a heavy rain the overflow will wash the dirt and plants right out of the planter area.
Comments about Product: I added the rain barrel to an existing downspout that was near the garden. It collects the water now for use when we have dry spells but also keeps the chlorine in our water out of my flowers. The built in overflow worked perfectly. Draining for the winter with valve open.
Comments about Product: Instructions were exact and easy to follow for set up. We had some problem with the faucet installation. It still leaks ever so little-- but not a problem to nearby flowers. Also, the flowers we planted in the top area are just beautiful!
Comments about Product: It would be great if there was a matching stand so you could get a 2 gallon bucket under the valve. I'll just build my own stand. The product works great. I have already bought a second one, identical to this one, for $100 less.
Comments about Product: We received the product much quicker than I would have thought and in great shape. We bought the rainbarrel with the intent to use this instead of putting in a french drain. We were having a problem with run off from our roof line and because we have special boxed eaves, they do not recommend that you put in gutters. Because our run off had a very strong direction off the roof line we tried the rain barrel to catch the majority of the run off. It worked! We no long have a holding area of water in front of our house and it much easier and less expensive than putting in a french drain.

The Olla: A Brief History
Olla (Spanish, pronounced “oh-ya”) jars have been around since ancient times. Made of unglazed ceramic, ollas traditionally have short, narrow necks with wider bodies, and are made in a variety of shapes. They have been used for thousands of years for cooking, storage, and plant irrigation.
When used to irrigate plants, an olla is buried neck-deep in the ground near a plant’s roots, with the opening of the olla extended above the soil so that it can be filled with water periodically. The porous walls of the unglazed pottery allow the water to seep through gradually, constantly and consistently hydrating the plants without overwatering them – and without wasting precious water to evaporation or runoff.
The use of ollas for irrigation was introduced to the American Southwest by Spanish conquistadors during Colonial times, becoming very common among Native American tribes and Hispanic settlers. Though the technique gave way to more modern methods of irrigation some time ago, its superior efficiency, coupled with its simplicity, has caused it to make a comeback. Though the technique has changed little since its introduction, today’s ollas are usually capped off, making them even more water-efficient.
Perfect for home gardens, Ollas are a super-easy, eco-friendly, less time-consuming way to water annuals, perennials, herbs, vegetables and plants of all kinds in dry, sandy soil, very hot or drought-prone areas, raised beds, and even pots, planters and hanging baskets. Fill the olla before you leave on a short vacation to enjoy worry-free watering – and a smaller water bill!
