Why Save Rain Water Only ¼ inch of rain is needed to fill a 60 gallon barrel. Sixty gallons can cover about 100 square feet with 1 inch of water. This can go along way in offsetting garden needs in the spring and summer months when water consumption increases anywhere between 20 and 200%. Capturing rain water in a barrel before it hits the ground decreases stormwater runoff, which otherwise carries pollutants from paved surfaces into groundwater and rivers.Installation Guidelines Tools needed: a hacksaw & measuring tape Diverter attaches easily to gutter downspout Draw a line on the downspout approximately 9 inches above the top of the rain barrel Move the barrel away Use a hacksaw and cut the downspout at the line or marking Note: if a downspout bracket is below your cut, remove the bracket and place it above the cut Attach diverter and set angle The diverter is designed so that you can crimp the sides of the downspouts to fit the diverter Done! Established in 1988, the Great American Rain Barrel Company was the result of an idea conjured up by two Massachusetts school teachers to recycle shipping drums into rain barrels as inspired by those they'd seen in English gardens. The shipping barrels they'd chosen had been used to ship olives from Spain, and sometimes the olives were even cured in the barrels and so the creation of the company was thematically appropriate, given the natural synergy with their import business and the environmental implications. Now, the Great American Rain Barrel Company is a fully owned subsidiary of a food importing and packing company. They repurpose their own shipping drums into a complete water collection system in their plant in Hyde Park, MA. With the support of a loyal customer base, the Great American Rain Barrel Company is one of the largest sellers of repurposed rain barrels to communities and individual people nationwide.
