Benefits of rain barrels

The water they collect gives you a source of chlorine-free, slightly-acidic, ambient-temperature water that’s great for your garden.

They reduce your demand for treated drinking water that’s often in short supply in the summer.

Buy a low-cost, high quality rain barrel. We’re working with local municipalities and a rain barrel vendor to provide rain barrels at select locations in spring 2016 around Metro Vancouver.
