Rain Barrel

What is a rain BARREL?

Rain barrels are used to collect rain water from roofs that can be used to water gardens or to wash your car or windows. Systems to collect rainwater have been used for many years.

Building Your Own Rain Barrel

You can purchase a rain barrel system from Rain Reserve Rain Barrels (formerly part of Sustain Dane). Their website includes a video on rain barrel installation.
