Details for the 2017 sale will be announced in the spring of 2017.

Downspount disconnection and rain barrel installation

  1. Ensure the ground beneath the rain barrel is firm and level. You may want to consider using a patio stone as a base. Raising the rain barrel off the ground also improves water flow out of the barrel through the hose.
  2. Cut the downspount 4 to 6 inches above the top of the barrel using a hacksaw and tin snips. Keep the remaining portion of the downspout so it can be reconnected when the rain barrel is winterized. 
  3. Install a short, flexible pipe or a downspout elbow onto the cut downspout to direct water into the opening at the top of the barrel. 
  4. Run the overflow hose into a nearby garden and away from your foundation.
