Want to know if this exists


The way that my eavesdrop are done, i have an eavesdrop going into the driveway. The problem i have is in winter time the water freezes and the driveway gets slippery. I cant really reroute the eavesdrop because it would pretty much be beside the other eavesdrop.

I want to buy a rain barrel, but the barrel would have to sit in the front of the house but wouldnt look cosmetically nice. I want to know if theirs some kind of rain bench, so ppl can sit on it and look cosmetically nice, and that the water could collect in the winter time.

Buy a bench; have a good roofer or a sheet metal shop build you a copper or TCSII tank to put under the bench. Ooops; I forgot that copper will kill plants; use TCSII (stainless with zinc) or just plain old stainless steel.
Thanks for the idea.

Buy a tank and build a bench around it? I don't like our garbage cans in the garage so i built a small cedar enclosure for them on the outside of the garage under the sofit.

You need the Rain Bench.
Looks like a neat idea.

Route it underground beside the driveway or under the driveway. Some contractors will have a borzit or similar tool for drilling horizontally under driveways and sidewalks to install pipes.

A barrel will freeze and break and will never hold enough volume for an entire winter.
