This RainBench DIY Kit is for someone with basic DIY carpentry and plumbing skills.  Save cash on shipping so you can go on that vacation you deserve.  Buy lumber & hardware locally (usually ~$30-40) to support Hank down the road,

you could throw a flat 4’x 4′ piece on top and make it into a rain dining patio table –  See? I told you their minds will be blown.

  • Large flat slab for table top (optional)

Acts like a rain barrel, Looks like a bench, Tastes like chicken. Ok don’t eat it, but if you did, it includes a 140 gallon FDA approved food grade liner
A plethora of specialty fittings and simple illustrated instructions help make it easy to build your own Rain Bench and connect to either 1″ tubing or garden hose to a diverter to fill, and a hose adapter and shutoff for use.

Watch one come apart…

…and fly back together.

Detailed instructions (downloadable .pdf right after purchase) help you build this 36″L x 36″W x 32 1/2″H bench that holds 140 gallons of rainwater. That’s a lot of water.

The only way you could do better is if you bought 2 kits, but then you may as well get the 280 gallon DIY kit and build a “double bench”- saving more trees AND water. You’re basically saving the world here.
