Rainwater Barrel

* Classic Rainwater Barrel - $50/each
58 gallon sealed-top barrel with brass valve, leaf guard and screen.

* Classic Rainwater Barrel with overflow - $60/each
58 gallon sealed barrel with brass valve, overflow port, leaf guard and screen.
* Expandable Rainwater Barrel - $75/each 
58 gallon barrel removable-top barrel with brass valve, dual overflow ports, leaf guard and screen.
Classic barrels are a sealed-top blue barrel with features comparable to other, more expensive barrels sold online or through programs in different cities and towns.  

Expandable barrels have ports on the sides that allow them to be connected to an overflow pipe or interconnected with other Expandable barrels for greater storage.  Expandable barrels can be made in blue or black.  They have a top that can be removed which helps if storing the barrel inside for the winter.  If you know from the start that you want to interconnect several barrels at one location, you can order an Expanded Set for $125 (set of two) and if you want a third (three barrels interconnected) we can add it for an additional $50.  
275-gallon containers are also available.  At $125 these can be a cost-effective option for do-it-yourselfers with the space for a larger system.  These containers feature a translucent polyethylene tank inside a metal frame that measures 47" wide by 40" deep by 46" tall.
