          • What are the benefits of rainwater harvesting?

            Anyone who grows indoor or outdoor plants can benefit from a rain barrel. About 40% of a typical household's water use goes to watering lawns and gardens, which make rain barrels a convenient way to collect and provide free water during periods of draught and water restrictions. Rain barrels can also help save money on water or electricity bills. The collected water is healthier for plants because it contains no chlorine or added salts.

            Using rain barrels can reduce your eco footprint. Harvesting rainwater reduces runoff, excess water that flows across the surface of the land when it rains or snows, which can lead to flooding and erosion. Runoff can carry pesticides, fertilizers and other contaminants, leading to pollution of streams, lakes and rivers.

          • Is there anything I should not use the collected water for?

            Collected rain water can be used for container and indoor plants, car, bike and boat washing, rinsing outdoor furniture or lawn tools and rinsing other items like muddy shoes. Water from a rain barrel is not suitable for human or animal consumption.

          • Can I paint my rain barrel?

            Yes, paints made for Polyethylene plastic will work. Check with your local hardware or home store for the best options.

          • What are the dimensions of the rain barrels? How much do they weigh without water?

          • What is DiverterPro™?

            DiverterPro™ is Fiskars’ new rainwater diverter that features a removable filter to capture debris and transparent door to see if cleaning is needed. DiverterPro™ has an improved capture rate during heavier rains and is easy to clean and winterize. DiverterPro™, available January 2010, includes a 3”x4” diverter, 2”x3” couplers, spigot, connector hose, connector and filter.

      • Safety and Health
          • How can I keep my children and pets safe?

            To prevent children and pets from harm, always keep the safety-snap rain barrel cover on your barrel. Make sure the barrel is positioned so that it cannot be easily overturned. Never permit children to play in, on or near a rain barrel or climb above, onto or into rain barrel. Do not allow humans or pets to drink water from a rain barrel.

          • How do I keep mosquitoes and other pests out of my barrel?

            To keep out pests, always keep the safety-snap cover on the rain barrel. Mosquitoes will gather wherever there is open standing water. Also make sure to keep your barrel free of organic material, which also may lead to unpleasant odors. If mosquitoes are a concern, try mosquito dunks or donuts which use a time release process to kill mosquito larvae, but do not cause harm to people, plants, animals or the environment when used correctly. Make sure to thoroughly read and follow the directions. Dunks or donuts are not a means to purify the water; rain barrel water should not be consumed.

          • How do I prevent algae and odors?

            Make sure to keep your barrel free of organic material as the decomposition causes odors. Regularly dispensing your collected rain water will help prevent growth and odors in your barrel.

      • Troubleshooting
          • How much area will the water from a full rain barrel cover?

            The pressure depends on the water level in the barrel and will decrease as the water level drops (as the water is used). Most if not all sprinkler systems require fairly high pressure to operate and will not work with a rain barrel unless a separate pump is used, and using a pump will empty a rain barrel fairly quickly. Rain barrels work great with soaker hoses. The capacities of Fiskars barrels vary between models, but 50 gallons of water will cover a little over 80 square feet to a depth of one inch.

          • Will the diverter clog?

            If your gutters frequently clog with leaves and or other debris, we suggest putting a piece of screen over the top of your downspout. Fiskars DiverterPro™, available January 2010, includes an easily removable filter to capture debris and a transparent “door” to see if cleaning is needed.

          • What if the hose becomes clogged with leaves?

            Detach the hose from the diverter and barrel. Flush the hose out with water or compressed air, if available. If you insert something into the hose to push through, you may damage the hose.

          • Why is the cover difficult to remove?

            Fiskars designed a tight-fitting cover for safety reasons. If you are having difficulty removing the rain barrel cover with your hands, try using a flat head screwdriver to pop it off.

          • Do I need to put my rain barrel on a paver?

            It is important to place your barrel on firm and level ground so the barrel will not sink into the ground when it is full or when the ground is wet. Cement pavers or other platforms can be used, but may not be necessary if the area under your barrel is firm and level.

          • My rain barrel is overflowing. Why is this happening, and what do I do?

            If water is overflowing out of the top of the barrel, the barrel is too low relative to the diverter. This may be due to an error in the diverter installation, or to the barrel sinking into the ground. The solution is to raise the barrel by building a base underneath it, preferably with large concrete pavers until the rim of the barrel about ½” above the line on the sides of the diverter. The bottom of the connecting hole in the side of the barrel should not be raised above the line on the diverter.

          • Why is water shooting out of the diverter?

            Fiskars’ original diverter slightly restricts flow through the downspout. However, if the downspout was correctly sized, this may only happen during extremely heavy rains, if at all. If this concerns you, the barrel can be moved to another downspout or you can install a larger downspout. Fiskars’ new rainwater diverter, DiverterPro™, has a 3”x4” opening throughout and has an improved capture rate during heavier rains. Learn more about DiverterPro™ on the “How it Works” page.
