Rain Barrels: Optimize the Efficiency of the Irrigation System at Your Home or Farm in Des Moines
Harvesting rainwater is a practice that goes back to the dawn of human civilization. It’s only been in recent years that people have stopped taking full advantage of this abundant natural resource, thanks to the convenience and low cost of city water. However, city water does have its drawbacks. Without a softener installed in your home, the water is often hard and full of chemicals that are used to treat it. Rain barrels, on the other hand, offer you the opportunity to harvest water that is naturally soft and can be used for a variety of purposes.
All of the rain barrels we assemble at Home Solutions of Iowa are made from up-cycled (repurposed) food shipping barrels, originating mainly in Greece and Spain. The barrels have a capacity of 55 gallons and are #2 or #4 plastics. Because these are used barrels there may be scratches, nicks or dock markings on the outside. These do not affect the function of the barrels for harvesting water.
- Rain barrels are from 39" to 40.5" tall and approximately 23" in diameter
- Gray rain barrels have a one-piece screw on lid, Terra Cotta a two-piece screw on lid.
- All the lids have 3 2½ inch holes for water intake. Holes are screened using standard fiberglass window screening.
- Spigots in all of our rain barrels are 3/4" quarter turn brass ball valves.
- Each rain barrel has an interior overflow standpipe that attaches to a 12' flex hose.
- Rain barrels come in your choice of natural terra cotta or gray. Primed or painted barrels are also available for in-store pick-up only.
