(Sometime Last Week)
We picked up this water barrel from Home Depot last week. It holds about 60 gallons of water and doesn’t look too bad either. Actually it only took about 15 minutes to install. I removed about 1″ from the gutter and inserted a plastic spacer with a outlet that is even with the feed nipple on the barrel.
The other night we had a heck of a rainstorm and like many had dime sized hail. It only took about 15-20 minutes and the barrel was full. This is only one of about 5 we plan to get. They cost about $100.00 each, so we will spread out the purchases. Our plan is to use the water in the barrels when the stream dries up this summer.
