Rain barrels are an ancient innovation and most presently consist of a 55-gallon drum used to collect & store rainwater from runoff areas. Rain barrels usually sit right under a downspout and have a screen grate on top to keep out debris or insects & using one seems pretty simple, but there are some modern ideas in the marketplace that may give a significant boost to the safety & utility of a rain barrel.
