How To Paint Your Rain Barrel - Tips
Barrels have been stored for some time and the outside will need to be cleaned before priming. Soapy water and a rinse will help remove some of the transportation and storage grime. For a deeper cleaning wetting a rag with rubbing alcohol and wiping the barrel down should do the trick!

IMPORTANT: Download this manual to learn everything you need to know about first flush systems http://www.rwh.in/RainwaterHarvesting.... If you are building a rainwater collection, retention, holding or harvesting system and want to add a first flush system to it watch this video. I go into detail on all the components and how to know how large of a first flush system you need.
O.K. I looked on youtube to see what would happen to a tote under home pressure (about 60 lbs). I couldn't find one so I made one.
My IBC Tote Aquaponic System with construction being the plastic cutting only. I plan to move systems into the heated garage in winter with a pallet jack. This will be easier when it is still in one piece. Talk at you later.
Goat shelters from IBC totes.
This is just a modification to an existing idea. I've seen the totes cut open without any protection for the entrance. I wanted to do something different to offer better protection from the elements. I've made enough for about a dozen of our goats and they are quite content using them.
This is an upgrade for a larger entrance. Each tote will accommodate a single adult or a doe and her kid.
Shop around to get the best price. I travel for ours and they cost us less than thirty dollars each by the dozen.
They are a durable and long term solution for shelters. They can be moved easily with a two-wheeler. They can also be used for other animals. Our pit bull enjoys his.
