Product Overview

By utilizing our Terra Cotta Rain Barrel for rain water conservation you can help the yourself and the environment. Our rain barrels will reduce your water bill and help control moisture levels around the foundation of your home. Rainwater harvesting works to reduce the volume of water flowing into sewer treatment facility and helps reduce urban runoff and runoff pollution which can contaminate nearby bodies of water. Additionally, our barrels are previously used, food grade drums that would otherwise end up in a landfill. Rain water can serve as a backup source of water during times of drought or between rain falls. The softer rain water is also a healthier way to water the plants in your home and/or garden due to it's highly oxygenated, salt and fluoride free properties. Our barrels are made from food grade drums meaning they produce safe water for all of your fruits, vegetables or other consumable plants. Features: Plastic mesh screen for catching leaves, sticks etc. Easy on-and-off twist top lid Brass overflow valve (not installed for personalized placement) which can attach a garden hose to divert water away from home, link to another barrel, or create/connect a soaker hose to run directly through a nearby flower beds.
  • Food grade, repurposed previously used plastic barrel
  • New brass spigot and new brass overflow valve
  • Easy on/off twist top lid with new plastic mesh screen
  • New downspout adapter included
  • Sealed with waterproof 100% silicone caulk

It says food grade plastic. What exactly is it made out of?

Can the spigot be leftn open with a hose attached to divert water from the house?

Asked by William April 23, 2021

Answers

Yes but it depends on how much water it coming into the barrel. I would recommend piping an overfill pipe with some larger than a hose. That way you have a full barrel of water and route excess water away. Look up Uniseals, simple to use for this type of application.

The lid comes with a 4" hole that acts as the water inlet. If laying these horizontally for an interactive sculpture I would recommend purchasing whole barrels with no spigot attachments. Please email us at info@mirainbarrel.com for more information
