These barrels are 55 Gallon barrels that will sit below your downspout from your gutter and collect the rain water that is coming off of your roof. Each barrel is equipped with an overflow which you can either use to funnel the excess water away from your foundation, or into another rain barrel. The drain on these barrels is setup for a standard garden or soaker hose connection. Local delivery is available. Please see link above for more details.

The Conservation Foundation sells 3 types of barrels

  • Our 55 gallon recycled food grade plastic rain barrels come equipped with a spigot, garden hose threaded overflow and screen in the top to help keep out bugs and debris, and have screw off lids. Many of our barrels were originally used to import pickles and olives, but they can find new life in your yard! These barrels sell for $85 (includes tax). Colors may vary; common colors are black, grey and terra cotta.
  • Also available is the same re-used barrel with a wide 1 - inch overflow for high water locations, available in black for $110 (includes tax).
