Aquascape, Inc. launched its new, decorative, urn-style RainXchange rain barrel, which can be incorporated into existing gutter and drainage systems. Made in the USA, the barrel’s 75-gallon capacity allows for greater rainwater storage than most rain barrels on the marketplace today.

The RainXchange rain barrel offers an introductory option for consumers desiring to get started with rainwater harvesting.  The unit requires no electricity and the large internal overflow system keeps water in the barrel and away from the house. Durable plastic walls withstand extreme conditions and a 5-year warranty is included.  A brass spigot can accept a garden hose for ease in irrigation.  The childproof lockable lid has a screened gutter inlet and can be used as a planter to help naturalize the barrel into the landscape design. The attractive design is an aesthetic option for stormwater management over traditional rain barrels that tend to be an eyesore in the landscape.

“The RainXchange rain barrel provides an economical and responsible solution for irrigating landscape plants,” stated Dave Kelly, vice president of product development for Aquascape. “Watering restrictions don’t apply to rain barrels and rain water is proven to be better for plants than municipally treated water.”
