Rain Barrels On Sale in Charlotte on Nov 17th

On Saturday, November 17th from 10am to noon, Mecklenburg County Soil and Water Conservation District will be holding an emergency rain barrel sale. No orders will be taken so its “first come, first served” at the Hal Marshall Building at 700 North Tryon in uptown Charlotte. 60 gallon rain barrels (like the one in the rain barrel video) will be $85 and 80 gallon barrels are $100. Cash or check is due at the time of pickup. Don’t be caught without a barrel next time it rains!!!

If you can not get one of these rain barrels do not despair. Check out the first rate products at http://www.aquabarrel.com and watch this important rain barrel video – not all designs for rain barrels work! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H6ndwzVu8Pw

As a rain barrel owner I’m impressed with the design improvements in Aqua Barrel. I’ve found the overflow to be an issue and Aqua Barrel looks to have addressed this. I also like the bottom mounted faucet that will release 100% of the water rather than leaving 4″ on the bottom forever.
It costs more but you know what they say.

Is Mecklenburg County or anyone else offering rain barrels this spring?
It would be great to see an Exhibitor selling these at the Home and Garden show in February!
