#2 – Fiskars 5998 Salsa II 58 Gallon Rain Barrel with DiverterPro

Fiskars 5998 Salsa II 58 Gallon Rain Barrel with DiverterPro - Spice Granite

This rain barrel has a very simple design.  However, we are in love with the diverter and how the barrel fills with water.  It comes with the Diverter Pro which installs itself into the gutter and funnels the water into your barrel through the side.  The diverter also filters out debris and leaves so that it doesn’t end up in your rain barrel.  We also like that the barrel has a flat back and will fit snug to the wall of your home or whatever wall you put it up against.
