This barrel makes rain harvesting, easy, convenient, economical, and efficient. It does all the work of a hard-shelled industrial barrel, but it is light, portable, and easily stowed away when not in use. It's also a lot less expensive that most commercial rain barrels.
Don't let the convenience and price of this barrel fool you - its hefty PVC exterior and huge 60-gallon capacity allow it to do its job as well as any rain barrel. It connects easily to your downspout diverters, and has a standard spigot connection for your garden hose to access your rainwater.
