Re: Rain Barrel
Do you want a faucet or a spigot? A spigot at the bottom is easy enough, just find a threaded one and purchase a rubber washer as well as a metal washer and nut to hold it in place. I like boiler drains as opposed to hose bibs for that use.
The drain set up is a bit tougher, but the easiest way is just cut a hole in the top, put a screen over the top to keep out the bugs, and have your downspout dump right in.
I personally like the supply used by Fiskars rain barrels which includes a flexible tube and a piece that fits into the downspout after you cut it.
