RAINWATER COLLECTION WATER SYSTEM 50 gallon
Rain Water Collection Made from Food-Grade Recycled Barrels!
Cut your water costs, lighten the load on your sewer and municipal system, protect nearby rivers and streams, help recycle industrial food grade barrels, keep water away from your foundation, and come out with a great looking yard and garden to boot – all using the rainwater that falls on your roof. Rainwater is oxygenated, un-chlorinated and (usually) warmer than tap water, which makes the Rain Barrel Rainwater Collection System preferable for watering your plants, garden and lawn, and for adding moisture to compost.
Our rain barrel is childproof and animal-proof. Features and Benefits: Source of natural water storage Recycled Food Grade Barrel Fully enclosed unit to be child proof and for pest control Expandable capacity Buffer storage for drip irrigation system Includes Splash Screen Lid to reduce splashing water and keep large debris from entering the barrel Many homes with downspouts in certain metro areas are now (or soon will be) required to disconnect from the sewer and storm drain systems to splash blocks. As in most urban areas, this will become a mandated environmental protection policy to help protect our rivers and streams. You can be proactive by switching to the Recycled Rain Barrel Rainwater Collection System.
The 57 gallon (approximately) rain barrels (recycled food grade barrels recycled) catch and store rainwater from your downspout. A brass spigot at the base is ideal for either connecting a watering hose or irrigation system. There is a 1.25″ overflow tube on both sides at the mid section of the unit to connect a hose to redirect rainwater into flower beds, a garden, dry well, other barrels for storage, or our gravity-fed irrigation system. Our linking kit connects multiple barrels for water storage that can be expanded to approximately 114 gallons, 171 gallons, or even more.
1 inch of rain on a 1000 sq ft roof yields 623 gallons of water. If you multiply the square footage of your roof by 623 and divide by 1000, you will know your yield.
