Don't let your free, pure rainwater drain away! The Upcycle 55 Gallon Terra Cotta Rain Barrel makes it easy to collect free rainwater from your roof, holding it cleanly and safely to be used when and where you want it. Made from food-quality recycled barrels, Upcycle rain barrels never rust or rot. You can even leave them out during the winter. A protective screen on top keeps out mosquitoes and leaves.
The terra cotta color looks great against brick houses and matches most garden pottery. It's paintable too. (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.
Please note: Upcycle uses recycled materials in manufacturing, this process may use different batches of recycled materials when molded so body styles may vary. If multiple units are purchased all efforts are made to match products but cannot guarantee they will be identical. Some can have a smooth surface where others may be ribbed. Manufacturer can be reached for special instruction, please call Hayneedle customer service for specialized requests.
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.Shop All Upcycle Products
