Rain Barrels

nyc_sod(z7 Marietta)May 11, 2009

Just thought I would pass along some information on rain barrels. I picked up 2 white 55 gallon barrels for $10 each locally (ITP) from Craig's List.


Food grade in excellent condition. I haven't started my project but my first barrel will look like this one: http://www.rainbarrelsofdecatur.com/. It will allow me to get inside the barrel to install the spigot and do a yearly cleaning.

I will make the second overflow barrel a different way. the barrel will be upside down with the drain in the existing cap.

Here is another listing I found on CL. I imagine you would only need 1 and cover it with something pretty.
