Other Uses for Barrels and Drums

Rain barrel completedHarvest rain water for gardening using this gently used plastic drum.

We currently have open head plastic drums which make great rain barrels. We can offer the drum alone, a kit that you can install which will allow you to use any 3/4″ garden hose, or we can install the kit in a drum for you.

Used open head plastic drums which previously had food product in them can be purchased as a drum only or as a complete kit, which contains a 3/4″ no lead brass faucet, a 3/4″ bulkhead fitting, a 1.5″ bulkhead fitting and a 1.5″ hose barb for the overflow (drum not included in the kit).

Sizes and styles of drums vary.
