Rain barrel hooked up

     With the predicted rain for this week I finally got my rain barrel hooked up this past weekend.  This was one of the free barrels given away at Greenfest.

  Saturday night's rain filled the entire barrel.  The screen shown is to stop the leaves from getting into the barrel.

   The overflow tube was already channeling the excess water away into the yard.

   The two valves at the bottom can be hooked up to a garden hose and used to water a garden or flowers. 

    The pressure from the water and gravity from being on an elevated deck should be enough to use a hose with a regular nozzle.
