Don't miss out on capturing all these beneficial Spring rains!!

With 16 years of experience and over 600 sold... I urge you to GO GREEN and save money! Give your plants, trees and shrubs what they really want... RAIN WATER! It only takes a quarter-inch of rain to fall on a 350 sq. ft surface to collect 52.5 gallons of water.

Rain barrels can be purchased as follows:

1.) Modified-unpainted version (with a high quality, quarter-turn brass spigot, adjustable downspout adapter and 2' length of PVC tubing for overflow). Priced @ $85.00 each.
2.) Two modified-unpainted versions, built in tandem, with one downspout adapter and one overflow tube. $170.00 per setup (for both barrels with attachments). See photos.

This is a GREAT deal, as the downspout adapter costs ~$10.00 alone. You will make that money back after only a few months of use, in addition to helping the environment. Barrels are fully sealed, preventing mosquitoes and other insects from entering and breeding, and can be custom built to suit your needs.

What are the advantages of a rain barrel? Lawn and garden watering make up nearly 40% of total household water use during the summer. A rain barrel collects water and stores it for when you need it most - during periods of drought - to water plants, wash your car, or to fill a pond or fountain. One rain barrel will save most homeowners about 1,300 gallons of water during the peak summer months. Local home improvement stores are selling these for $100.00+, and are made with thinner plastic and low quality plastic spigots!

Barrel Dimensions:
Diameter - 2 ft.
Height - 3 ft.
Standard Color Available: White

Barrels are 'food grade', meaning no harmful chemicals were ever inside them... and are very clean, inside and out. They can be setup separately (1 per downspout) or attached in 'tandem', meaning (2) per downspout... if you only have one location suited for them.

I started building these as a hobby and I thought, what a great way to keep these out of landfills while saving money at the same time. Water is a precious resource, and we should be doing everything we can to conserve it. I've used my (2) for many things... including: general watering of shrubs/trees/flowers, indoor plants, washing your car, rinsing paint rollers/brushes, refilling water features in your yard such as ponds or fountains... or just washing your hands when you're outside! The possibilities and uses are endless.

Call, text or email with any questions. I will not respond to emails without a name and number. Barrels are available for pick-up in the Racine/Milwaukee area. Delivery to Milwaukee/Racine/Kenosha counties available for a flat fee of $35.00 (due to the high gas prices). If you purchase (4) or more... I will deliver them to the above counties for FREE!

What you see in the photos is what you will receive, per barrel purchased. All I need to know is the number of barrels you'd like, and how you plan to configure them (i.e. placement in your yard/house). Overflow tubing can be installed on any 'side' of the barrel, it just depends on how you plan to set it up in your location. Spigots can be located anywhere around the barrel as well.

Contact Gregg @ 414-899-25 (seven) (seven) for more information or with any questions. Cash, Venmo and Zelle accepted. Paypal works too, but that method will include a $5.00 that's charged to me.

Finally... there aren't too many things in life that are FREE, but rain water is one of them! Why not take advantage of it???

Thanks for looking!
