Each year more than 34,000 gallons of rain can fall on a 30 x 40 square foot roof in Virginia. Much of this water flows across lawns, over pavement and directly into storm sewers, eventually ending up in local lakes, streams and rivers. During heavy rain events, this runoff can lead to increased streambank erosion, flooding and water pollution. The use of rain barrels is an inexpensive way to decrease storm water runoff, conserve water for garden and lawn use and save money on your water bill.
- Rain barrels are designed to collect and store rainwater for future use
- The barrels are placed under gutter downspouts or where roof lines end and water runs off
- A single rain barrel can save about 1,300 gallons of water during peak summer months
- Water can be used anywhere non-potable water is needed, such as to water lawns and gardens, wash cars and dogs, or fill children's swimming pools
Please note: FOR's current stock of barrels are recycled. reused barrels, and show some signs of wear We apologise for any cosmetic deficiencies, but we guarrantee their function ! Using previously-used barrels (ours transported olives from Chile) decreases our carbon footprint and also helps us keep our prices low.
