Dealing with Rain (Barrels)
I raised the rain barrel 13", so that the top valve on the side is even with the output on the downspout bypass. That means that the same hose can be both input and overflow simultaneously.
I also replaced both other valves, reinforcing them with the new design, and with marine grade epoxy. Also added quick disconnects to the bottom valve (which we'll be using for plants) and a hose storage device.
The plan is to add some more rain barrels to other gutters later in the season
I was sure glad to have it buttoned up by then!
