How to Build a Rain Barrel from Handyman -- Build it yourself for less than $ 100

Rain barrel illustration. A very useful piece of equipment. Especially with the water shortages that we are experiencing in various parts of the world.

Taking care of a yard is hard work and can be expensive. Save money by building your own rain barrel (for less than $100!). Get complete how-to instructions from Family Handyman and start saving water with the next rainfall! It's eco-friendly AND wallet-friendly!


Reuse rainwater with these barrels made from trash cans. Placed underneath your home's downspout, a rain barrel can help conserve water (and money) by capturing rain runoff from the roof. You can then use that water for the garden. You'll find a variety of barrels available online: Look for ones that have a spigot for a house attachment. Or make your own from large plastic trash containers. You can purchase a pump to help deliver the water through your hose, or a tap to fill your watering can.

Very nice for a lot of gray-water storage. I've seen this done before with hot water heaters.

What genius way to save water!! Fill it up during the rainy season, use it during the summer.
