I was just wondering on the cost of the rain barrels ? you made . I will have a greenhouse but no water hook up. I m thinking rain barrels but looking in the Internet i only found that they are very costly.
Could you give me an estimate on what you spent.
It is a great article and i learned alot . I m looking forward to making my own.
I pay $18 for the barrel, and the hardware is about $10, the tubing is about $10 but the tools are most expensive. You are fine if you have the tools and all the right bits you need for your drill or saw blades. If you need to buy more bits or more add another $10. Screens are about $2.00.
My own barrels cost me $38 each. It took me about 3-4 hours of time to assemble each one. That is mainly where the cost of finished barrels comes into play - the workmanship.
