Large Rain Barrels (500+ Gallons)…

50 gallon rain barrels can hold plenty of water for many people, especially those who have multiple containers set up around the property. However, what if you get seasonal rains and want to store larger amounts of water for longer periods of time?

Then it’s time for large rain barrels.

Although there are more decorative options in the smaller-sized rain barrels, homeowners can still get larger water storage tanks.

In fact, you can order the RomoTech 550-Gallon Water Tank online and have it shipped to you in less than 2 weeks.

This extra-large water storage container measures 67″ diameter by 45″ tall (imagine the size of a small portable hot tub). So, it’s not super tall, and it may be easier to set up than you think. Also, the reservoir weighs 140 lbs.

Note: The container IS approved for potable water storage.

Although I wouldn’t consider this water tank “decorative”, I wouldn’t say it’s unsightly either. That said, you may want to set up the container in a covered location. The light, translucent polyethylene material allows light inside the tank, and therefore unwanted organic growth can occur.

Natural Mineral Ion Water Treatment for Potable Want Storage Tanks

Note: To keep your water clean and prevent the growth of bacteria, use a water treatment like H20 ResQ Biofilm Defender.

It uses silver copper ion technology and keep water fresh for 5 years without having to use chlorine. One bottle treats 330 gallons, so for a 550 gallon container, you’ll need to get 2 bottles.

Other than that, the heavy-duty, thick-walled construction makes this extra large “rain barrel” easy to care for and maintain. It even has molded-in graduation marks in gallons and liters.

What’s best for you? It really depends on how much water you want to collect and store and how much space you have available. You may also want to think about whether you want to store all of your rainwater runoff in a single location or multiple locations around your home (for watering convenience).
