This premium rain barrel fills from any size downspout through a bug-proof entry cover; a solid Brass spigot connects easily to your garden hose or soaker hose; two overflow ports can connect to standard water hoses to divert excess rain away from your home to nearby shrubbery areas; ribbed sides for strength, and a removable top for easy spring cleaning.

At only 37 inches high and 28 inches wide, the 80 Gallon barrel offers one third more capacity. The deep concave top channels water into the entry cover. The screened entry prevents insects and debris from entering the rain barrel and your barrel refills with each rainfall.

Made in North Carolina from high density polyethylene, your rain barrel will provide years of nourishment for healthy, beautiful plants.

To purchase your barrel, come to the N.C. Cooperative Extension, Buncombe County Center at 49 Mount Carmel Road, Asheville, NC 28806. To check availability call 828-255-5522.
