The overflow couplers let you connect rain barrels. I have three in a row being fed by one downspout. Mine were purchased. I wouldn't buy rain barrels again. They're too easy to make if you can find barrels. I saw barrels in white and blue being sold off of hwy 141 on the way to Iron Mountain for $10 each. They're out there for free if we take time to hunt them down.
