Rain Barrels and Your Gutters

Rain barrels collect the water from gutters or other forms of runoff from a home. Also known as rainwater tanks, people use the water in rain barrels for many purposes such as collecting irrigation water or having water around in case of drought. Here are some of the best ways to get water going from your gutters and into your rain barrel.

Ice In The Gutters

Thick ridges of ice can form when sudden weather changes cause a drop in temperature. Following a cold, rainy day, frozen water in your gutters may cause ice buildup along the eaves of your home. The ice can creep over into gutters and along the edges of the house, causing multiple issues that can damage your house.
