pardon the posting here and delete if not the appropriate venue for my blatant sales pitch to your group -
In this area you have freeze issues to consider with your rain containment device. I suggest you review Aquabarrel's website for downspout filters, downspout diverters and other nifty products. If you folks want to put together a buying group, we would consider discounting and reducing shipping costs - Barry, Founder, Aquabarrel in Gaithersburg, MD
