Weight of rain barrels too much for foundation?
This might be a silly question, but we are interested in getting two of these to attach to our rain gutter downspouts, which are both on the same side of the house. The ones at the shop nearby are 275 US gallons.
The tanks apparently weigh 2000 pounds when full. So I'm wondering whether having two of them along the same wall (although at opposite ends) is going to cause trouble with the foundation. That's a lot of weight!
What do you think?
