Our organization builds and sells inexpensive rain barrels to the community. Each rain barrel is made of food grade plastic and is ready to install under a downspout, or if rain gutters are not an option, a rain chain can be attached to the roof and water will flow down into the rain barrel.

 If location for barrels is limited to one or two downspouts, barrels can be connected for use at one downspout. Spray paint recommended for painting on plastic helps the rain barrel blend into the surroundings.

Rain barrels sell for $50, and because rainwater harvesting materials are tax free in Texas, there is no sales tax.

A rebate of 50% of the purchase price of rainwater harvesting materials, up to a maximum of $50, is available to Kerr County residents from the Upper Guadalupe River Authority (UGRA).
