    It doesn't take much rain to fill the barrel especially considering your shed roof is not that big. How to you plan to fill the next one if it won't be roof fed?

    heavy rain last night filled it 90%. I'll probably get another one for the larger garden even though it won't be roof-fed.

    There are tablets you can put in to prevent mosquitoes.

    Not sure what you're using it for but if you want to stop algea from growing just throw a cup of bleach in once in a while. (Don't do this for watering plants!) My rain barrel has a diverter hose from a rain spout. It would be pretty hard for a mosquito to find it's way to the barrel and if it did it has a screen I made from window screen material at the end of the hose. I have plastic wrapped around the hose at the inlet of the barrel to keep bugs and dirt out. For anyone interested in making a rain barrel I got one of these for about $18.00 for the diverter including the hose. It works great and when the barrel is full the water just runs down the downspout. Rain Barrel Diverter

    I have a 2500 gallon white water tank at work, that we pull alot of water out of daily, but still manages to grow algae. not a super big deal as we arent trying to drink this water or water plants with it. The blue is supposed to help with algae, black is supposed to be ok too. i added a black tank this year. i will post my scientific findings on algae between the two tanks at the end of the year to let you know. My actual serious question is, can this become a breeding ground for mosquitoes?

    Even if it’s like 88 here the heat index is gonna be damn near 100. Last night I took a 45 minute walk and it was like 78 degrees out 40 percent humidity and I didn’t even start to sweat until the last five minutes. Later this week I’ll sweat standing still for a minute outside and my old ass customers like to linger.

    I guess it depends how often it is being used? I also have two mesh screen drain catches. One at the top of the downspout, and one directly in the top of the barrel to catch any debris. No issues so far for the first day 😃

    My barrel is actually blue. I painted it white to match the garage siding. The water that comes out of it is crystal clear. The hose from the gutter diverter to the barrel gets some green around the top just inside the barrel that I noticed when I empty it in the fall. I wouldn't drink it but it's fine for watering the plants.

    Thursday/Friday might hit 90, at least in the south end of the state.

    Get a blue drum if you're storing for a while. Itll block uv/stop bacteria. You could also agitate/stir every now and then. I'd say about 2 months in a clear barrel with no stirring before stuff gets bad. But idk.

    Question: How does the water hold up in the barrel? Does anything seem to grow in it or does it stay clear?

    Gravity feed, no. Need a pump.

    You'll be surprised how fast it will fill up just from half of your shed roof. You may get to see it tonight if the thunder storms they're calling for happen.

    Here's a dumb question - is there enough water pressure coming out of the barrel to use one of these with a sprinkler? My house has a 16 zone sprinkler system that was put in by the previous owners and I never use it because its so wasteful (water and $), but there are a couple gardens and maybe one area of lawn that I'd like to water occasionally and this could be a nice solution.

    Sure, assuming its filled all of the time I know I wouldn't need them. The problem is it gets super windy on top of my little hill and shit gets blown from my yard if it isn't held in place in some way. If it is empty, it will end up taking flight. Here's hoping for some rain to fill it..

    With 55 gallons of water plus the barrel, spigot, etc. the whole thing weighs just about 500 pounds. You won't need the shelf brackets to hold it on the stand but some cross braces might not be a bad idea.
