The Juxtaposition Paradox

(with extended posts & end caps)

Concrete Pavers, add $70
(Includes poly edging, anchoring spikes, leveling sand, and landscape fabric.)


Definition: "A Juxtaposition Paradox is where two related objects are positioned side by side in contrast to one another and yet are true, simultaneously."



One is the same as the other and yet completely different, as you can see in the photos below. Both barrels are cedar cladded, stained with a Honey Gold color, and banded with 1 1/4" steel strapping. Both are umbilically connected using underneath and concealed plumbing with ball valve technology. Individually, they both hold more than 55 gallons of rain water, yet they are as different as night and day.

Right side - showing opening for rain chain


Full Flow Four Barrel

Left side - showing overflow hose, with added support railing

One barrel has a rain chain going into it, a lid with a 12" opening, a removable 600 micron debris screen, and an overflow with a 12 foot, 1 1/2" dia., flexible drainage hose. The other barrel has none of these. It is a closed unit that would normally be attached to the Water Saver Diverter, which, as you can see, it is not. Two barrels, juxtaposed together as a true Rain Harvesting paradox, fully functional and reliable.

Special Note: This system should be completely drained with the spigot left in the open position in preparation for a cold snap.
