RESTRICTIONS ON RAIN BARREL USE
• Water collected from rain barrels is not suitable for human or pet consumption.

 • Due to lack of research data, water collected in a rain barrel is not recommended for watering
   fruit or vegetable gardens.

 • The water flow (and pressure) will be less than from your outdoor spigot, making sprinklers
   ineffective. Plan to use soaker hoses, handheld spray nozzles and/or watering cans. Elevating
   your rain barrel on a sturdy platform will increase the flow.
