Large, open containers should not be used for rainwater storage. Rain barrels need enclosed tops with grates. The grates will allow water in, but keep out small animals.
A fine screen on the grate can be used to keep insects out. Never use stored water for drinking.
When full, rain barrels can pose a tipping risk. Completed barrels should be on level ground with a sturdy foundation.
