1000 litre / 275 gallon repurposed rain tank. These used, food grade tanks are comprised of a galvanized metal frame with a pallet (metal, plastic or wood) and a plastic HDPE bottle. The rain tank has a 6, 8 or 12 inch top fill cap and a 2 inch bottom butterfly or ball valve. The tanks may or may not include a plastic cap with buttress or NPT thread for the bottom valve. If a valve cap is included, it can be drilled to accept our garden hose spigot assembly. A spigot assembly and 7/8 inch hole saw are not included. The dimensions are approximately 39 inches wide across the bottom valve, 47 inches deep and 48 inches tall and the tanks weigh approximately 75 lbs empty. Previous contents may include olive oil, fish oil, organic fertilizer or beverage concentrates and some residue may still remain inside. The residue, if any, will only enrich the soil. These tanks are not sold for potable water as we do not attempt to clean them thoroughly.

Dino Gambino –
We opted for the 275 gallon container because we had the space and have experienced long periods without rain. Unfortunately we couldn’t place the container as close to the downspout as we would have liked which meant the diverter hose wasn’t long enough. I emailed RainBarrel.ca to explain my problem. I received a quick response with great suggestions to help me connect the container to the diverter. The support I received from RainBarrel.ca was top notch. The staff were pleasant and keen to help me resolve the connection issue. I’m very happy with the help of RainBarrel.ca and that I’ve connected two hoses from the downspout diverter to the lid of the container and collected over 700L of water over a period of three days. Thank you from us and our garden vegetables!
