My rain barrel
My brother and I finished putting together our first rain barrel. The blue plastic barrel was acquired at a old engine swap meet. We turned it upside down, bored a hole into what is now the top, this is the inlet. We used the 3/4" threads in the bung, and threaded plastic PVC parts into that. Then a PVC to brass fitting, into which we installed a brass spigot. Also, a 2" overflow was installed. We used fiberglass window screen at the inlet, and at the end of the overflow. I dropped a 1/4 "doughnut" of a Mosquito Dunk in the tank today. Hopefully it will work as planned.
