Rain Barrel love in Utah

Posted by on May 5, 2010 in Emergency Preparedness, Idea Corner, Water Storage | 3 comments

Congrats to the congress for the State of Utah who recently embraced the use of poly drums as rain barrels.  Made from reconditioned (recycled for reuse) 55 gallon plastic drums, the rain barrels are extremely strong and rigid. They are available in blue, black or translucent white colors. Will work as a “stand alone” rain barrel or together with multiple rain barrels to collect & store rain for later use. The barrels are great for storing water to be used to water plants and in an emergency situation, with proper precautions, the water could be used as drinking water.  Check out MBC for what is available in 30 and 55 gallon sizes.  This is a fun project for the family. Any Ute or Cougar can “get er dun.”  Pick one up today!

    I’m interested. What do the barrels cost? Are they in stock? In all color choices?

    Any update on the legality of harvesting rain that falls on one’s property?

    Thanks!

  3. As you may know Bob it is now okay to harvest water at our homes. We have a few color choices – Blue, natural, and black are most popular. Odd colors of green, yellow, and purple are available occasionally.
