Thanks for visiting Austin Green Water! Sign up for our FREE newsletter below on the right. CLICK ABOVE ON STORE AND PRODUCTS FOR OUR CURRENT INVENTORY, PRICING, AND TO PURCHASE RAIN BARRELS.
1.Green Water Rain Barrels are 100% recycled from local Austin companies. We do not use non-renewable plastics, but rather food-grade or higher steel barrels. Metal barrels also help reduce algae growth. Our units are lined with a polymer lining that prevents rusting! Your green purchase helps save landfill waste by renewing local discarded materials and is the most environmentally sound rain barrel on the market.
2.Green Water Rain Barrels have higher water collection capacities (up to 165 gallons). A single unit is 55 gallons, but we carry larger capacity systems.
3.All multi-unit rain barrels qualify for the City of Austin ($30) and the City of San Marcos ($50) Rain Barrel Rebate program. Click HERE for more information.
4.Sturdy wooden stands are included with all purchases at no additional costs. This is important, as all other rain barrels do not include this feature. Rain barrels that sit on the ground and do not have a spigot connected to the bottom of the unit will not have any water pressure, and are hard to fill garden watering containers with. Our specially designed stand allows for higher water pressure output and elevates the rain barrel for easy access.
5.All brass metal fittings are included at no additional costs. Many rain barrels only allow for a small spigot nozzle which may not be compatible with all garden hoses. Our brass fittings assure that any garden hose can be attached to our systems PHOTO SPIGOT.
6.Debris screen keep out roof debris and prevents mosquito growth. Other rain barrels require constant cleaning and the use of mosquito dunks to prevent insect growth. Green Water units come fully-assembled and ready to use.
7.Overflow valve allows overflow rainwater to be diverted to other areas away from the foundation. This is recommended by all professional roofers and gutter companies.
8.All multilink systems use a 2” connection hose which allows for immediate collection in all barrels. A 2” hole also allows for higher water pressure outputs. All barrels fill up and empty at the same time! Other connected units on the market have a small 1/4″ hose which does not allow for uniform filling and draining.
9.Pricing—Green Water rain barrels are priced lower than many plastic units found online. Our triple unit (165 gallons) is one of the most economical rain barrel found anywhere.
10.Delivery and professional installation available for Central Texas, or you can pick up retail units at EcoWise, Countryside Nursery, Breed & Co. or Callahan’s General Store.
