This kit is great for first-time rain harvesters or for those who require a rain barrel and diverter. The collection barrel is constructed of strong, 1005 recycled UV-resistant polyethylene resin that has been molded with a faux wood design. The back of the barrel is flat to allow the barrel to stand close to the wall. There is a front-side overflow that keeps water from collecting on the wall of your home. At the inflow there is a screen that will keep debris, animals and insects out of the barrel. This screen is easy to remove for cleaning.
The Rain Wizard Starter Kit comes with:
- A 50 gallon capacity water collection barrel.
- A diverter kit that works with 2"x 3" downspouts.
- High-quality brass spigot for hose hook-up.
- Teflon (plumbers) Tape
The barrel is available in several colors that will allow you to choose the best match for the landscape and the exterior of your home: oak, black, khaki, terra cotta, forest green.
Instructions are included, but here are the quick instructions for set-up:
Connect the diverter to your downspout then attach it to the rain barrel. The included diverter works with 2"x 3" downspouts, allows for you to place the barrel away from the downspout and makes it easy for it to be relocated.
These rain barrels are made of the industry's strongest UV-resistant polyethylene resin. The manufacturer recommends draining the barrel when freezing temperatures are expected.
