Rain Barrel


Love the DIY on rain barrels. My concern is the very looong harsh winter months of Upstate NY. What must I do to prepare the rain barrel from the damage of out winter months?

Hello leoisa and welcome to the Community.


You should drain your rain barrel, open the spigot and remove the filter screen.  If possible turn upside down and store in the garage or basement. If you store outside cover with a tarp. Remove and drain all hoses. Disconnect the diverter and install a downspout extension to move any run off away from your foundation. 

Thanks for your inquiry.
