.How do I get rain into the rain barrel?
The easiest way to install this rain barrel is to position it under a downspout or under the edge of a roof. A more elegant solution is to install a WaterSaver Downspout Diverter
. This prevents damage to the screen from torrential rains, and it is preferred by many Home Owner's Associations for aesthetic reasons.
Add a Garden Watersaver Downspout to your order and we'll ship the diverter for no additional shipping charge. Please note - your diverter will ship from a separate location and may arrive before your rain barrel. Summit Mosquito Control Dunks
allow you to collect rain water mosquito free.
