We can only provide the free rain barrel at this time. You can purchase drain spout diverter kits for your rain barrel (see diagram) locally. Information about rain barrels and instructions for installing diverter kit & hose spigots can be found on YouTube.
Instructions for Painting your Rain Barrel
