A: the overflow during a big rain fall flows over the top and down the front,some debris needs to be cleaned from the top and the front needs to bescrubbed occasionally. I have a drip irrigation hose attached to the lowerspout that irrigate my garden and close that off to use the upper spout formy watering canister. So somewhat of a closed system if used as I do. Ialso put and entire bottle of hydrogen peroxide in the rain barrel todecrease odor. Highly recommend this rain barrel due to the 2 spouts, nobellowing out when full, very functional!
Q: Can this barrel be left out all year in Minnesota?
