Questions & Answers

Does this Barrel have an opening or drain at the bottom to connect a garden hose?

Asked by: Niknoksigok
No - but easy enough to add a drain-tap. I did to mine - just look online for "rain-barrel spigot". You will need to drill a hole sized to fit the spigot - my spigot came with instructions as to size, and jI ust bought a hole saw the right diameter (fits on a drill) and drilled the hole. If you look on YouTube, it shows how to use a string to help you connect the spigot parts inside to outside the barrel, when you only have bung hole openings to work with.

are these food grade barrels?

Asked by: OLI123
"It is important to note that not all HDPE containers are considered food-grade. If they are not labelled specifically as "food safe," the container should be lined with a food-grade plastic bag before storing food in it." http://www.ehow.com/way_5819448_do-tell-food-grade-plastic_.html

Can this barrel be used in its side to store water? Or is it meant to be used upright only?

It won't fit in my vehicle when full of water unless it's on its side.
Asked by: DroughtbusterDan
My opinion: Upright only.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great buy I was looking for a container where i could store water. This barrel is perfect since it comes with screw caps to secure its contents inside or to apply an adapter to draw.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Into every life a little rain must fall. And you can use it to cut back on the county water bill. Excellent Product. I bought two to go atop a hefty home-made stand to collect downspout rain water for our day lillies, phlox, tulips, jonquils, juniper, blueberries, and tomatos. (The stand is 2' high so we can gravity-feed 110 gallons--a little less than a half-ton-- of water to the various plant beds.) The barrels were not blemished, and they have graduated scales in gallons. The white plastic is translucent, so you can tell how much water you've collected. I plan to mask these scales to keep them visible after I eventually paint the barrels green. Zinnser B.I.N will prime the plastic surface when new, but I'm going to let a season of solar UV break down the anti-paint surface compound a little. The B.I.N will never come off, then. Other useful parts: Dixon 60401 Polypropylene Pipe and Welding Fitting, Bulkhead, 3/4" NPT Female, 1-3/8" Hole Size. DEWALT D180022 1-3/8-Inch Standard Bi-Metal Hole Saw. Oatey 14209 Mystic Rainwater Collection System. Brass plumbing thread to hose bib converter (for bulkhead connector). Hose bibs. PVC Pipe, rubber 4" to 2" adapter. Barbed connectors, etc. We've used the barrels for all our plant-watering for the month of August, and we still have about 40 gallons on hand...until it rains again, of course. We have another seller's plastic barrels for a second system, but the Home Depot units are much better quality.

However, needs some quality control. I got four barrels and three are the same height, but one is almost a full 2 inches shorter than the other three.
