It does not make any sense for you to pay to water your garden when you can just use the water that falls from the sky. This rain barrel is plenty large and made from solid polyethylene so it will resist cracking or other weather damage. Moreover, the UV protection gives it another strengthening boost. But just in case, this rain barrel comes with a 1 year limited manufacturer's warranty. Beat the heat and those rising summer water prices when drought season hits. This rain barrel can also be used to fill a pool. This rain barrel stands a solid 30 inches high while it is 22 inches wide and 22 inches Deep, making its 50-gallon capacity drum an almost unnecessary amount of water for your outdoor project needs.
