The Rain Barrels and More Rain Barrel is recycled and converted from food grade barrels that were used to hold olives and pickles. The barrels have been thoroughly cleaned and washed before they are converted to rain barrels. The barrels are made out of plastic and have a UV coating on the outside of them to protect them from damage. The size of the barrel is 41” high x 23” diameter. The rain barrel comes with a screw on lid that has a mesh screen to keep out debris, children, and animals. There are three overflow connections, a brass spigot, and a bottom drain plug.
