How does it work?
The Rain Barrel stores water that flows off of your roof. The water is captured by an Automatic Diverter.

Once it fills, you can us the water to fill in the rain gaps that summer droughts can bring.
But is it enough water to last me?

Rain Barrel Info-
There are holes drilled into the lid for the water to drain into from your downspout. The screening keeps out the debris from the roof and keeps the mosquitoes out.
Because all our barrels have a garden hose size spigot at the bottom of the barrels you have several options on how to water your plants since a garden hose, landscape tubing or drip tubing can be attached to the barrel. If you wanted to use a watering can simply situate the barrel on a wooden pedestal. The barrels also have an overflow fitting to allow the excess water that flows from the downspout to be diverted away from the barrel and a linking hose fitting so (2) or more barrels can be joined together and will all fill up from just (1) downspout
