First I apologize for the huge amount of "Umms" and "Uhhs" This rain barrel is mine but is based in theory off of others found on the Interwebs. My mom wanted a rain barrel but I couldn't let her pay more than double for a store bought one. So I made this.
Parts list is basically as follows 55 Gallon Blue barrel HDPE (i found mine on craigslist for 25 dollars!) Assorted PVC piping and joins (Home Depot 4-7 dollars) PVC Primer and Cement (Home Depot about 6 dollars) 3/4 in spade drill bit (Maybe you already have this or can lend from a helpful neighbor like I did) Drill (same as the drill bit) Optional - spray Paint (found my specific Krylon no prime paint at Sears; color is Hunter Green)
