Get your neighborhood started on the green path by setting a good example with the Good Ideas 40 Gallon Rain Wizard Darkened Rib Oak Rain Barrel. This plastic barrel is colored to look like real oak and features darkened bands for a more authentic look. Now you can catch and store rainwater that would normally run off your house and into the ground. All you have to do is position this molded plastic barrel under your down spout, and water will pass through the screen and into the barrel for use at a later time. The use of the screen means water gets in, but debris and insects don't.
Thanks to the flat back design of the barrel, it will sit right against the house and take up less space on your walkway or patio. Child and pet proof, this rain barrel will hold up to 40 gallons of pure rainwater, which can be used to water gardens and potted plants. It can also be linked to other Rain Wizards by using a link kit (sold separately) to increase water capacity. This barrel features a shut-off valve for hose hook-up or dual overflow.
Made of plastic resin, this rain barrel is resistant to rust, mold, mildew, rotting, UV rays, fading, and deterioration. The spigot is made of high-quality brass, which lasts longer and is more reliable than plastic spigots found on other models. Especially useful during dry seasons, the Rain Wizard is a smart and inexpensive investment that will pay for itself several times over in water bill savings. Please note - the brass spigot is included with your rain barrel. It is shipped inside the barrel - remove before use.
An Eco-friendly Practice: Using a rain barrel is one way you can become more environmentally conscious. Saving rain water reduces the amount of usable water you need, which decreases demand for treated water and saves you money. Because the rain barrel catches water that would normally flow to the ground, it also helps the environment by reducing runoff waste water. Storing rain water can also supply you with an alternative water source during dry weather spells. And to top it all off, rain water is healthier for plants than tap water. What are you waiting for?
