All of our Rain Barrels are made from recycled food barrels. We do not manufacture new plastic rain barrels because we feel that would contradict our eco-friendly belief. We do not want to solve a problem only to create another one.
Rain Barrels are a great way to save money and help the environment. By using rain water we can preserve our drinking water.
Rain barrels harvest the rain water off of the roof and store it for watering your plants, vegetable gardens and lawn. Hundreds of gallons of water from your roof ends up in the sewers. Why throw money down the drain when you can use it?

Question: How do you clean the inside of the barrels?
Answer: Drain your barrel and pull it away from the house. Unscrew the small white caps and pop off the yellow cap. Use a spray nozzle connected to your house water line to spray the inside of the barrel. Open the spigot valve and let the water drain out. You can also turn the barrel upside down to get the last bit out.
