Terra Cotta Upcycled Rain Barrel (50 and 55 gallon options)
Put your rain to work for you with a rain barrel! Your rain barrel purchase helps... cut your water bill, protect against flooding, AND restore YOUR Rouge River.

Upcycle Rain Barrel, made in Chicago from upcycled shipping containers. All barrels are Food Quality High Density Poly Ethylene Barrels that were previously used to ship pickled food overseas. Upcycle cleans and rinses them with rain water and PH neutral soap so you never have to worry about harsh contaminants getting on your plants.

Mosquito-proof lid design

Mosquito-proof lid design features insect mesh fine enough to exclude even the smallest Aedes mosquito

Features on ALL Upcycle Rain Barrels:
  • Mosquito-proof mesh screen
  • Pre-drilled and assembled
  • Garden hose-sized plastic spigot (installed)
Terra-Cotta barrels come from Greece and had olives in them. They are the perfect color to match your terra-cotta planters and hanging pots that all the nurseries and green houses are currently selling. The color blends in well with red brick homes.

There are holes drilled into the lid for the water to drain into from your downspout. The screening keeps out the debris from the roof and keeps the mosquitoes out.

Because barrels have a garden hose size spigot at the bottom of the barrels you have several options on how to water your plants since a garden hose, landscape tubing or drip tubing can be attached to the barrel. If you wanted to use a watering can simply situate the barrel on a wooden pedestal. The barrels also have an overflow fitting to allow the excess water that flows from the downspout to be diverted away from the barrel and a linking hose fitting so (2) or more barrels can be joined together and will all fill up from just (1) downspout.
