There are also many local options to purchase rain barrels, including garden centers and hardware stores.
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.
