The 30 Gallon Upcycle Rain Barrel is designed for apartment dwellers with balconies and users with lower water needs. This barrel weighs less than 300 lbs. full, well below a balcony's 400 lb limit. The Upcycle 30 Gallon Blue Rain Barrel collects pure, free rainwater from your roof and holds it cleanly and safely, to be used for all your plant and garden needs. Made from food-quality recycled barrels, they'll never rust or rot. A protective screen on top keeps out mosquitoes and leaves. You can even leave it out during the winter.
Home craft painters love the blue barrel's color, a perfect sky or water background for their designs. (We recommend using Krylon Fusion paint for plastic.) Upcycle rain barrels are linkable, so a single downspout can fill as many barrels as you want. The convenient spigot on the bottom fits any standard garden hose for easy watering. An overflow fitting lets you divert extra water away from your house. Upcycle sets the right example, using collected rainwater and biodegradable soap to wash and rinse these barrels, so no harsh chemicals bother your beautiful plants. Assembles easily.
About Upcycle Products
Upcycle is the largest manufacturer of Upcycled Rain Barrels in the United States. Originally used to ship food overseas, these recycled barrels are ideal for storing rainwater. Besides saving landfill space, Upcycle's company philosophy is that nothing is thrown out. They minimize their carbon footprint through the effective use of water, CFL lighting, vehicle fuel, and heat, even collecting rainwater off their roof to use for washing barrels. The owners practice what they preach, and haven't used a drop of city water in over eight years.
