Are you a gardener? Have a yen to conserve? Tired of paying high water bills? If so, you might want to consider a rain barrel. A rain barrel is a system that collects and stores rainwater from your roof that would otherwise be lost to runoff and diverted to storm drains and streams.
Lawn and garden watering make up nearly 40% of total household water use during the summer. A rain barrel collects water and stores it for when you need it most— during periods of drought—to water plants, wash your car, or to top a swimming pool. It provides an ample supply of free “soft water” to homeowners, containing no chlorine, lime or calcium making it ideal for gardens, flower pots, and car and window washing.

Each barrel holds 50 gallons of water and in it’s former life was used as a food-grade barrel. Rain Barrel installation comes with a 3 year warranty.
