Rain Barrels Buying Guide

Skip the water restrictions in your neighborhood with access to your own source of captured rainwater: a rain barrel. Here's how to decide which container is perfect for your landscape.

Types of Rain Barrels

Types of Rain Barrels

Perhaps you're looking for ways to trim your summertime water bill. Or maybe you're frustrated by runoff from rains. Or perhaps you want convenient access to garden-ready water. Whatever the case, a rain barrel may be the answer. It's a cost-effective way to trap all that water that would otherwise be lost to hard surfaces or saturated ground. It's also a great solution to providing close-by sources of water for items that require frequent hydration -- a collection of container plantings, for example. But before you start shopping for the perfect rain barrel, take a closer look at the types: plastic, clay/stone, wood, and metal.

Plastic

Plastic rain barrels can be molded into different shapes, styles, and colors to mimic the appearance of other, more expensive materials. However, plastic rain barrels may fade and not stand up as well to the elements.

The Rain Wizard Plastic Rain Barrel Stand is designed for use with its matching 50 or 40 Gallon Rain Barrel from Good Ideas. Const...ructed of the same durable resin as the barrel (the black option is recycled plastic), this stand lifts the barrel up to just the right height for slipping a watering can in under the spigot, and it allows gravity to increase water flow. Most importantly, the stand will reduce any pressure stress points on the rain barrels base. The concave shape of the front of the stand is also designed to make using the rain barrel easier.

Clay/Stone

Clay or stone rain barrels are very heavy, which means that once in place, they probably will stay in place. They can be simple in design or embellished with more decorative features. They tend to be much smaller than other types.

Wood

Wood rain barrels are also available; most have a fairly simple construction and a longer life than plastic versions. They are made from a variety of wood types and in a range of sizes and styles.

Metal

Typically used to catch very large quantities of rain, metal rain barrels have an interior liner that traps water. As with clay/stone or wood rain barrels, metal barrels are often heavy and unwieldy, making them more permanent fixtures once established.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

All rain barrels are designed to do the same thing: capture runoff water for reuse. But even so, some provide more bells and whistles to get the job done. For example, size of rain barrels varies; if you have large water needs, a bigger rain barrel may be a good fit. Even small decisions such as storage, cover/screening, base, spigot, and location can have a big effect on how convenient it is to use your rain barrel and how much you can rely on it for your water needs. Here's a short guide to those purchase considerations.

Cover/Screening

All rain barrels should have a cover of some sort to prevent debris from contaminating the water. The cover may be integrated with a screen that helps to catch more runoff and prevent rocks and other items from entering the rain barrel.

Size

The size of the rain barrel determines how much water it can store. Rain barrels are available in sizes to accommodate a very small quantity -- perfect for watering a small bed or collection of containers -- or much larger storage system.

Storage

The construction of some rain barrels may require storage over cold winter months to prevent decay of the material. If so, make sure you can move the rain barrel and have the proper place to keep it.

Base

Your rain barrel should be level on the ground, which may require a base of some sort -- pavers, a concrete pad, or wood.

Spigot

All rain barrels should have a spigot located a convenient distance from the base that can be used to attach a hose.

Location

Before you begin shopping, make sure you establish the dimensions and placement of your rain barrel, such as adjacent to a gutter spout. Use that information as a guideline for selecting the appropriate rain barrel.

The Good Ideas Rain Wizard Resin Rain Flat Back Rain Barrel is a stylish and easy way to catch and store rainwater that would norm...ally just drain onto the ground and be lost. All you have to do is position this molded plastic barrel under your down spout, and water will pass through the screen and into the barrel for use later. The use of the screen means water gets in, but debris and insects don't. Thanks to the flat back design of the barrel, it will sit right against the house and take up less space on your walkway or patio. Child and pet proof, this rain barrel will hold up to 40 gallons of pure rainwater, which can be used to water gardens and potted plants. It can also be linked to other Rain Wizards by using a link kit (sold separately) to increase water capacity. This barrel features a shut-off valve for hose hook-up or dual overflow. Made of weather-resistant resin (the black option is recycled plastic), this rain barrel is resistant to rust, mold, mildew, rotting, UV rays, fading, and deterioration. The spigot is made of high-quality brass, which lasts longer and is more reliable than plastic spigots found on other models. Especially useful during dry seasons, the Rain Wizard is a smart and inexpensive investment that will pay for itself several times over in water bill savings. Please note - the brass spigot is included with your rain barrel. It is shipped inside the barrel - remove before use. An Eco-friendly Practice: Using a rain barrel is one way you can become more environmentally conscious. Saving rain water reduces the amount of usable water you need, which decreases demand for treated water and saves you money. Because the rain barrel catches water that would normally flow to the ground, it also helps the environment by reducing runoff waste water. Storing rain water can also supply you with an alternative water source during dry weather spells. And to top it all off, rain water is healthier for plants than tap water. What are you waiting for? Order a rain barrel today, and go green. About Good Ideas, Inc. Based in Lake City, Penn., Good Ideas, Inc. was founded in 2001 and has been promoting green living ever since.

The Rescue 50 gal. Flat Back Whiskey Rain Barrel features an integrated planter and an easy-to-install, patented downspout diverte...r kit which fits 2 in. x 3 in. standard or 3 in. x 4 in. high capacity downspouts. The downspout diverter will automatically keep your rain barrel full when rain has fallen and bypass the rain barrel when full preventing overfilling and overflowing which can cause flooding. This rain barrel kit collects rainwater to be both environmentally-friendly and money-saving by helping reduce your dependence on municipal or well water. In addition, your plants will thrive using pure, soft rain water instead of the processed water from your tap which can contain elements harmful to your plants. An added feature about the diverter system is that it does not have to be removed during the winter season. The diverter and rain barrel can be by-passed so that water flows through the downspout as usual, keeping water from getting into the rain barrel and freezing. The integrated planter can be planted directly into or a pre-arranged floral basket can be used to adorn the top of the rain barrel. The planter area includes a weep hole, allowing excess water to drain out preventing plant stress or death due to over-watering and root rot. Environmentally-friendly decorative water urn collects rain from your downspout to reduce your need for municipal or well water, helping you save money Made from UV-stable, engineered resin for durability with the look of a Grey whiskey barrel with black accent bands Built-in large planter has weep holes to help prevent over watering and root rot Kit includes our patented Dual downspout diverter, a 36 in. connection hose, connection grommets, a barb plug, a 48 in. main outlet hose with on/off ball cock valve, 2 hose gaskets and an illustrated installation guide The diverter system automatically redirects water down the downspout when the urn is full Easy-to-install downspout diverter kit fits 2 in. x 3 in. standard or 3 in. x 4 in. high capacity downspouts Holds up to 50 gal. of rainwater Can be connected to a soaker hose for convenient automatic watering of nearby plants/gardens Rainwater is ideal for watering plants and gardens, rainwater is at ambient temperatures which plant enjoy and it contains no chlorine or other chemicals Back of rain barrel is flat to sit closely to side of house or building for a low profile and attractive appearance Installation GuideSpecificationYou will need Adobe® Acrobat® Reader to view PDF documents.

The use of the screen means water gets in, but debris and insects don't. Thanks to the flat back design of the barrel, it will sit right against the house and take up less space on your walkway or patio. Child and pet proof, this rain barrel will hold up to 40 gallons of pure rainwater, which can be used to water gardens and potted plants. It can also be linked to other Rain Wizards by using a link kit (sold separately) to increase water capacity. This barrel features a shut-off valve for hose hook-up or dual overflow. Made of weather-resistant resin (the black option is recycled plastic), this rain barrel is resistant to rust, mold, mildew, rotting, UV rays, fading, and deterioration. The spigot is made of high-quality brass, which lasts longer and is more reliable than plastic spigots found on other models. Especially useful during dry seasons, the Rain Wizard is a smart and inexpensive investment that will pay for itself several times over in water bill savings. Please note - the brass spigot is included with your rain barrel. It is shipped inside the barrel - remove before use. An Eco-friendly Practice: Using a rain barrel is one way you can become more environmentally conscious. Saving rain water reduces the amount of usable water you need, which decreases demand for treated water and saves you money. Because the rain barrel catches water that would normally flow to the ground, it also helps the environment by reducing runoff waste water. Storing rain water can also supply you with an alternative water source during dry weather spells. And to top it all off, rain water is healthier for plants than tap water. What are you waiting for?
