There are also many local options to purchase rain barrels, including garden centers and hardware stores.
You may also want to contact the Cumberland River Compact about their rain barrels and DIY workshops.
Here are a few tips to keep in mind when shopping for, or building, a rainbarrel:
Prevent mosquitoes: Your rain barrel should have a screen completely covering the hole on top where water enters from the down spout.
Provide overflow drainage: Your rain barrel should have an overflow hole near the top, with a connecting hose, to allow excess water to drain out and runoff away from the house.
Installing your Rain Barrel
Your rain barrel should come with complete installation instructions. Read the instructions before purchasing and be aware of any additional parts you may need to get for proper installation
