Default 3/4 inch Overflow Valve – Thread for regular garden hose
Free 1 1/2 Upgrade – PVC Overflow works with standard 1 1/2 inch sump pump hose
Why would someone need a larger overflow valve?
By default when our standard rain barrel fills rainwater will go out the overflow valve and down an ordinary garden hose but what happens when there is a HUGE downpour?
Simple, some goes out the overflow valve and the rest of the rainwater goes out another downspout tube on your home because it is a larger exit point.
What if you do not have another downspout tube or your rooftop is very large and produces too much rain water during a storm?
Have us install a larger 1 1/2 inch overflow valve so it is able to direct larger amounts of water away from your home thru ordinary sump pump hose. People use this option for filling goldfish ponds, directing storm water runoff, drying up wet basements and unwanted backyard swamps. You will be able to choose what size overflow valve you would like during the secure checkout process.
