Rain Water Collection Barrel

If you are interested in saving water and these days who isn’t? This 50-Gallon Rain Water Collection Barrel might just be the thing you need to collect, conserve and make use of rain water around your home or cottage.

During heavy rain falls, a typical roof can produce hundreds of gallons of water and by saving that water, you can reduce your average water usage.

This rain water collection barrel features an oak barrel texture that is molded into each barrel and will not fade, rot or risk insect infestation.

In addition, this rain barrel has a flat back to allow it to sit flush against a wall and it is linkable to other rain barrels for increased capacity.

It has a screen to keep out debris and insects, and a shut off valve for hose hook up with dual overflow.

This rain barrel can provide up to 50 gallons of pure unchlorinated water. With those kinds of savings, this rain barrel can pay for itself in just a few seasons.

A front side overflow keeps water from flooding against your outside wall.

You can also purchase an optional barrel stand to create a larger offset between the spigot and the ground, making it easier to fill watering cans and for general use.

from CDN$ 189.52 Optional stand is CDN$ 70.98
