Specifications
Rain barrels are containers that collect and store rainwater draining from your roof. They have many economical and sustainable advantages. Many communities force "odd-even" or "no watering" bans to conserve water resources, which makes collecting your own more beneficial. This barrel collects rainwater to provide an ample supply of free "soft water" that contains no chlorine, lime or calcium for gardens, flower pots, and car and window washing. Reconditioned rain barrels are made from recycled and reconditioned plastic barrels formerly used for food product shipping, such as pickle and pepper barrels. Barrels are modified into rain barrels and assembled with a spigot and overflow fitting. The rain barrel top/lid is equipped with metal mesh screen to filter out debris and prevent mosquitoes from getting in.

Key benefits:

  • Reduce runoff pollution
  • Rainwater is better for your plants and soil
  • Eco-friendly
  • Helps control moisture levels around the foundations of your home
  • Made from barrels previously used to ship pickled foods
  • Rain barrel accessories available separately

Material:

High-Density Polyethylene PlasticHigh density polyethylene (HDPE ) is the most commonly used resin. This economical plastic has good impact resistance, is naturally translucent, flexible and typically used for personal care products such as shampoo bottles. Adding color will give HDPE an opaque look that will result in an increase in weight and rigidness. We have a variety of these rigid and tough high density polyethylene products in stock, from containers, pails, bottles, caps, tubs and jugs. HDPE works well in below freezing temperatures. HDPE heat compatibility varies. Maximum fill temperature is generally around 145°F; however, testing is recommended with your specific product and application.

What 55 gallon drum quantities can ship UPS?

What is this rain barrel made of?
This rain barrel is made of high density polyethylene (HDPE) plastic, which offers good impact resistance as well as chemical and temperature resistance. HDPE also offers high tensile strength and can be recycled. This durable plastic composition makes these barrels ideal for outdoor use.
What are some benefits of your rain barrels?
Most rain barrels utilize a reconditioned 55-gallon drum, which diverts that barrel from a landfill. Our rain barrels were previously used for food products, which ensures no harmful chemicals were stored in these containers. Additionally, they conserve rainwater which can be used to safely water plants or used for washing.
Does a rain barrel save money?
According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), a rain barrel can save about 1,300 gallons of water during the peak summer months. Additionally, in a national survey by DC Urban Gardeners, a rain barrel lowered water bills by about $35 a month in the summer.
How do rain barrels work?
Rain barrels are typically positioned under building or house downspouts to collect rain water for later use. The collected water can be used to water plants or for cleaning purposes. These barrels are fitted with a spigot that can be connected to a hose to more easily distribute the water. You can also attach netting on the barrel opening to prevent debris from entering the barrel and prevent mosquitoes from accessing the water.
How do you install a rain barrel?
Install the spigot and overflow fitting to your rain barrel. Select a spot beneath a downspout. Position the downspout over the barrel, but away from the building. Let the rain fall!
