The Earth Minded DIY stands out from the rest for it's versatility. It includes the parts to convert any water tight container to a rain barrel, including a spigot and a hole saw set. It also diverts water back to the downspout when the barrel is full to prevent overflows collecting around the home's foundation.
We included simpler models like the Save the Rain and the Gutterworks Offset because their installation is very simple without all the small parts that the more sophisticated options have. You don't even need to worry about getting a tight seal on a hose because they don't have a hose to connect. They don't provide overflow protection, but they are still a good option for someone who doesn't mind opening and closing it manually.
