Purchasing a rain barrel is an investment – in your money, time, and the environment. This Exaco Universal Rain Barrel Rectangle Connection Kit makes protecting those investments through potentially hazardous winters easy. Draining your rain barrel is paramount in order to prevent bursting of the barrel during freezing temperatures, and this kit includes all the parts necessary for that task; it will connect to any rain barrel with any rectangular sharped downspout, and includes the drill bit. There’s also a knob that allows for closing or opening of the water catcher (close during winter). Made in Germany.
