From a customer in Georgia, install of an 84" RainSaucer on a 55 gal drum. He writes " The Rain Saucer is doing just what we wanted. Our garden is on a slope, so we set the barrel just above it, installed a spigot & connected it to movable soaker hose. It works like a charm. It was easy to assemble & filled up very quickly. One problem was the wind, but we anchored the collector to the garden fence and that took care of it."

Customer in California uses this 84" RainSaucer with multiple barrels on a hillside. She moves the RainSaucer from barrel to barrel as each one gets filled during the rainy season. The plan is to use the water during the dry Summer with pressure provide by gravity.

Customer in Orlando, FL writes "I have installed my rainsaucer and like it very much... I have 2 rain barrels side-by-side near my garden planter which is quite a ways from the house, so it wasn't possible to have the rain barrels filled from a gutter down spout. The barrels are linked together at the bottom so that as one fills the other fills also, and likewise, as one drains down, the other does, too."
