BlueBarrel Rainwater Catchment Systems
BlueBarrel is your one-stop source for do-it-yourself rainwater harvesting.

The BlueBarrel System™ is made from repurposed 55-gallon barrels, daisy-chained together for a streamlined look, maximum efficiency of flow, and no limit to the amount of storage capacity you can install. We facilitate a local exchange for repurposed barrels, and we’ll ship the rest of the materials to your door!
