DIY Rain Barrel Sale **SOLD OUT**

Part of our “Spring Fever” Series. 

Save water at home by installing your own rain collection system! Keep Roswell Beautiful is hosting a DIY Rain Barrel Sale this to kick off to its “Spring Fever” series of environmental education opportunities. Capture a percentage of your roof runoff and use it to water plants later instead of tapping into your municipal water. Save water, and save money!

Keep Roswell Beautiful conducts 1-2 Rain Barrel Kit sales per year. The kit includes an unpainted 55-gallon food grade drum, the fittings to attach it to your downspout, and printed instructions with links to how-to videos. The only tools you will need at home are a drill, a Phillips head screwdriver, and a level (personal protective gear is recommended as well). This is a closed system, meaning the top does not come off and helps prevent mosquitoes from moving in. Stay tuned for another sale in 2021!

Rain Barrels are beneficial not only for conserving treated, potable water, but also for preventing stormwater runoff. By catching water from your home’s downspout and diverting it into your garden, rain barrels slow rainwater rushing into storm drains, decreasing erosion and pollution in nearby streams.
