Retain The Rain with a River Action rain barrel

Order a rain barrel now for just $80 online. Stop at our office, 822 E. River Dr., Davenport, IA 52803 for curbside pickup!

Every gallon of rainwater collected keeps it out of our already swollen rivers and streams, and potentially out of your basement or business. EVERY GALLON COUNTS!

CLICK HERE to purchase your rain barrel with a regular diverter [2X3 in. downspout].

CLICK HERE to purchase your rain barrel with a large diverter [3X4 in. downspout].

Rain barrels include a 60-gallon barrel, lid, mosquito netting, downspout diverter, spigot and two overflow attachments.

WHY? - Collected rainwater can be used to irrigate lawns, water landscape beds or wash cars. Rain barrels also reduce stormwater runoff lessening the impact on storm sewers, local streams, and rivers.

WHERE? - Barrels can then be picked up at our Davenport office: 822 E. River Drive (Please note we can not ship rain barrels).

Rain barrels are part of River Action's Retain the Rain program, an initiative to conserve water and lower flood levels in local rivers and streams.

Using a rain barrel is one of the simplest actions you can take to reduce runoff by collecting the rain that runs off your home.

HOW? - The diverter channels water into the barrel when needed, and fits all downspouts, metal or plastic. The barrels are 0.1875 thick recycled polyethylene and can be joined together with a garden hose. When the barrel is full, the diverter can be flipped up to a closed position to let the downspout function normally.

If you have questions call (563) 322-2969.
