Frequently Asked Questions
What are some of the benefits of rain barrels?
Rain barrels provide natural softer and free water which saves you money, lowers your carbon footprint and reduces stormwater run-off helping preserve our Great Lakes and Mother Earth, all at the same time.
How quickly does my rain barrel fill up in a average rain?
During a normal rainfall, even 1/10 inch of rain can collect up to 63 gallons of water (off of an average 1000 sq. ft roof). This means that most rain barrels will fill up in 5 minutes!
How much does mirainbarrel hold?
Due to the nature of the container being only previously used food grade, our rain barrels vary in size, you may see color and size / design variation. We try hard to keep them as similar to our original design as possible. Average sizes are 180L, 192L, 200L, 220L. Each contained various foods we commonly eat at restaurants. Mostly you will see 220L barrels.
