Good question, I think it depends on your specific setup. At one point, I started using a small piece of window screen between the downspout and the barrel to prevent debris and bugs. You may just have to test it out and adjust as needed. Good luck
Sounds good enough to try. Go for it! Good luck
My design came from a need to make the most rain barrels that would last and perform their function at the lowest cost. I would likely look for a different type of container that was already headed for the landfill, but that's just me. There are large plastic totes that go by many names but have a capacity closer to 200 gallons. Check around on Craigslist and see what you can find
