So, there are a lot of great things in the world. Grady Barrels is one of those amazing things. Let me tell you a little bit about Grady Barrels, and you can decide for yourself whether or not you want to he them as much as I do. If you want the gist: if you want a great, low-cost way to save up some rainwater, this is the option for you.
First, there’s Patrick Grady, who is an interesting character in his own right. He’s a great guy that actually cares about his clients, which is a whole lot more than you’ll get out of other types of people. He cares a lot about the work you’ll be doing with his barrels, and he really does care about the fact that he’s giving you a worthwhile product for your money. This is very important since a lot of people just give you something quick and easy that might not work for you. This is not so with Grady Barrels.
First, it starts with a great, quality barrel. What is really cool about these barrels is that they are all recycled from food-grade barrels. Grady doesn’t buy any new barrels for the transformation into the rain barrel they will turn into. He just takes old, used food barrels and repurposes them into something more useful. He went into this more with me recently at the Good Earth Homeshow in Eugene, Oregon.
He went into the whole process with me, starting with a barrel that he has rescued from a food company. The barrel he has with him at the show is made out of a food barrel that was carrying sunflower oil before he got a hold of it. He went through the process, and what really struck me was just how much time and effort he put into the whole thing. Not only has he done something great by reusing an old barrel that would have otherwise just been tossed into a landfill, but he has repurposed it into something USEFUL that doesn’t take a lot of work to do. If you want my opinion, Grady Barrels is a great company with a lot to offer everyone.
For me, they get a total thumbs up. Arms up. Everything up.
