Where can I buy his rain barrels. I've been researching for several years and could not find any I found worth the price. This looks perfect.

It's a darn shame that some huge company will now move in and start make barrels in large quantities, sell them to Home Depot which will undercut his price and put him out of business.
I don't want to alarm you ABM but there are already companies in the business of making dedicated rain barrells. Screened to repell mosquitos and fitted with water spickets etc....(I'm an avid gardener and have two personally and have installed some for others)

Besides that, I often scratch my head when people complain about an item being manufactured cheaper and thusly more available to the public. Especially in this instance, I mean isn't the general idea to conserve water and tread easier on our water resources? It stands to reason that the more private cisterns in use the better off everyone is, right?

It's EASY to convince someone that conservation is a good thing, it's another thing entirely to get them to open their wallet/purse and invest in the solution. Wether it's a hybrid car a solor water heater or a rain barrell, the cheaper the solution is, the more apt people are to use it.
