    Q:When you live in an area where it gets very cold do you have to disconnect the rain barrel and put it away for the winter.

    Answer This Question

    A:  I would suggest it. You will at least want to empty it and close the flow from the gutter down spout to the barrel (this information is included in the instructions). You don't necessarily have to put it away but it will be light and could blow over easily without water in it.

      A:  All I did was empty the water from the barrel so it would not freeze. Once the weather stays above freezing I well start to collect the water again.

        A:  It never gets cold enough where I live to freeze. I would suggest contacting manufacturer.

          A:  We drained it and disconnected from the downspout to prevent ice build up but left them outside.

            A:  No, it is not necessary. I just drain it in the Fall, leave the valve open and tilt the barrel forward using a flat cinder block on the bottom backside of the barrel so as not to accumulate water in it. I live in upstate NY; Syracuse, and have had no issues in the two years that I've owned it.

              Answer This Question

              A:  I don't know if there is a stand matching exactly those barrels. I have used about a dozen of grey bricks. 3-4 rows does the trick.

              by|May 5, 2023

                A:  After researching reviews for other manufacturers' stands, it seems many of the stands available are plastic tend to buckle under the weight of the water when full. I suggest getting some concrete pavers to lift it off the ground.

                by|May 5, 2023

                  A:  We used a couple of large paver bricks to lift it above ground a bit more but it doesn't come with a stand nor (to my knowledge) is there a stand designed for it.

                  Q:What happens to it if the water inside it freezes?

                  Answer This Question

                  A:  Yes, it will need to be winterized though. Pretty much drain as much water out as you can.

                  by|May 5, 2023

                    A:  Yes, Just leave the spigot open at the bottom of the barrel so no water collects in it. Leaving it with water inside over the winter could crack the barrel because water expands when frozen.

                        by|Apr 5, 2020

                          A:  No, the water must be routed into a hole into the barrel. You can't just open the top and have water flow in without drilling a large hole which wil allow debris to collect inside. It's designed to receive water from the side through a hose.

                            A:  Yes they can. The manual shows how to do this along with measurements. No additional items would need to be bought.

                            by|May 5, 2023

                              A:  Yes, just drill a hole on each barrel and connect a tube, make sure it's near the top so they will be able to fill up.
