System works great. I wish now that I'd added more capacity, as the plumbing can certainly handle it. The barrels fill up in about 10-15 minutes of a strong rain. It's been another hot, dry summer in Texas, so the more captured, the better!
I'd be sure to add plenty of structural support for the barrels, if emulating this system. They weigh a LOT when full, and I think my framing may be sagging just a bit in the middle. Maybe....
