Easy 1, 2, 3 Rain Barrel

Updated: Oct 23

We have water pouring off of our roof every time it rains. A rain barrel will keep it away from our house. We can also use the free garden water.

First, we spray it with UV paint!

Next, we cut off the entire top. We don't have a downspout to line up with. This is a jigsaw. Eventually we gave up and used a chain saw because it was difficult to cut. Eye protection!

Lastly, I purchased a small piece of screen and a bungee cord to prevent mosquitoes from getting into the water. Since we chose not to elevate the rain barrel, I attached a short hose. The water pressure is still just enough!
