All barrels are once-used 55-gallon, tight-head (closed-top) poly drums, made from high quality, food-grade, UV-resistant HDPE plastic.
DIMENSIONS: 35″ height x 23″ diameter; barrel walls are roughly 1/4″ thick. Click here for sample barrel specs.
We carefully vet all of our participating barrel suppliers to make sure drums are compatible with our DIY RainKits and safe for non-potable rainwater storage. Prior contents are declared in our barrel supplier listings. Barrels sourced through our program are generally rinsed but some residue is normal for used barrels.
PRICING: Individual barrels (unmodified): $40 ea.
Same barrels purchased with RainKit™: $30 ea. Click here to order barrels with RainKit for discounted price.
