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

Answer This Question

A:  Possibly.

    A:  Yes, that is what I use mine for. I have two hoses attached ? one for the bottom valve and one for the overflow connector. The hoses redirect the water to another part of the property. I plan to swap the hoses to a 1-inch underground PVC for aesthetics.

      A:  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.

        A:  We do not have a suggested weight limit on these barrels when laid horizontally as that is not their suggested use.

          Q:Is the top solid when it arrives? I want to use this to lay on its side to put three end to end filled with water with outlet and inlet on underside to create a caterpillar that kids can climb on. Would want to gorilla glue the lid on. ( is there a better way to seal the top???) Thanks

          A:  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
