Q: I just moved to NM, and have canales at roof top from which rain water flows. Need a barrel that will capture that flow off one as is substantial. I don't have the standard downspouts, just not how its done here. Can this be opened up to capture the flow?

A: Mandy,The rain barrel captures rain ( not from downspout) as well. It has ascreen top. However, to maximize your water collection, make sure there isa way to direct the water from the canales to the barrel. There arecalculators online that help you size your barrel properly.VNS
