Why use a rain barrel? Rain Barrels connect to your downspout, decreasing the amount of rain that runs off your property. Why is that important? Reduced runoff helps prevent water pollution and flooding. Every time it rains, unabsorbed water rushes to storm drains and directly to local waterways. This water carries with it pollutants such as pet waste, automotive fluids and fertilizer.
Installing a rain barrel benefits the environment and you. The water saved in rain barrels can be used for watering flowers, gardens and lawns all through the summer, even in times of drought. Reduced water demand will lower your use of municipal water supplies, saving your money!
Rain barrels are also easy because they require very little maintenance. Learn more by reading our maintenance guidelines.
