Rain Barrels and Compost Bins
Rain Catcher Rain Barrel
- The large opening and flat back design allow for easy installation and placement of the downspout while the spoke and wheel pattern in the top of the barrel keeps it child and pet safe.
- The overflow connection at the back of the barrel allows excess water to flow down and underneath the barrel to direct it away from foundations.
- Spigots on the side of the barrel allow you to connect multiple Rain Catcher barrels in-series for easy expansion of your rain water storage capacity.
- The aluminum mesh screen keeps out debris and mosquitoes to keep the water clear and keep your family safe from insect borne illnesses.
Place them around your home to catch fresh chlorine-free water as it pours from your downspouts – Water that would otherwise make its way into storm sewers only to be wasted. Rain barrels not only save you money but lessen the strain on water resources.
- The barrels are constructed of recycled, UV inhibited, BPA free polyethylene.
- Includes debris screen, garden hose, shut-off thumb valve, hanging hose clip, overflow hose, and linking kit

Rain barrels typically hold 55 gallons of water and can be linked together for additional storage. A 1,200 square foot roof can generate around 720 gallons of water during a 1” rainfall and 17,000 gallons over one growing season. To capture as much of this runoff as possible, also consider installing a larger cistern with a pump for watering your lawn.
