Our plastic rain barrels are made from imported Grecian pepper barrels which were originally received in this country filled with delicious golden Greek peppers. The terra cotta rain barrels are 35" tall with a 23" diameter and hold approximately 50 Gallons.
All of our plastic rain barrels are made from re-cycled food grade barrels.
These plastic recycled barrels have traveled many thousands of miles, and even though we have thoroughly cleaned them inside and out, and applied several coats of a UV polish, they may still have some small scratches and scrapes. This should be considered as part of the "character" of the Grecian rain barrels.
Our rain barrels have a screw on perforated top with inside screen mesh to keep out debris, bugs, pets and children, three top overflow male hose connections, a nylon spigot, and a bottom drain plug. The overflow fittings allow excess water to be diverted into a second barrel (or third, or fourth or fifth etc.), or by attaching a hose, excess water can be diverted to any remote area such as a garden or flower bed.
The nylon spigot is shipped inside the barrel and will need to be screwed into the pre-installed plastic fitting by the customer. The nylon spigot can be interchanged with the bottom drain plug if desired.
