They can range from 16 gallons to 15.000 gallons. When using a recycled or new plastic tank, always make sure it's FDA approved. This means that it's suitable for collecting and storing rainwater.

They come in all shapes and sizes. They can be horizontal, vertical, rectangular or open top tanks like the rainbarrel.

When selecting plastic tanks, make sure it's either black, dark green or some other dark colored so as to block UV rays which in return will grow algae in the tank. If for some reason, it doesn't come in a dark color, you can always use Paint for Plastic This also applies of course for a regular rainbarrel.
