50 GALLON RAIN BARREL
Our 50 Gallon Rain Barrel Is Eligible for the DOEE Rebate
We proudly carry this 50-gallon Rain Barrel by EarthMinded that Washington, D.C. homeowners can install at a very low cost, with full rebate through the DC Government.
The Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay, the regional environmental organization coordinating the DOEE rain barrel program, has pre-approved this rain barrel to receive the rebate.
However, it does require a downspout filter (in place of a barrel filter). We recommend this filter from Aquabarrel. It also needs a small piece of mosquito netting for the input hose – if you need some, just ask us and we are happy to provide it with purchase of this rain barrel.
Our experts at Annie’s Ace Hardware will answer any questions you have regarding the supplies you need to install this rain barrel. Thanks to the DOEE you can save money and conserve water for free* once you receive your rebate.
Don’t miss out on this great opportunity!

What Are The Benefits Of Rain Barrels?
A Money Saver – with this free water source homeowners save on their water bills. Lawn and garden irrigation accounts for 40 % of residential water use according to the EPA.
Using rain barrels, homeowners can save roughly 1,300 gallons of water during the growing season.
Healthy Plants and Soil – Rainwater does not contain the same additives found in tap water like inorganic ions and fluoride compounds which over time, accumulate in soil.
This accumulation can potentially harm plant roots and microorganisms in the soil. Clean rainwater helps clean the soil of salt buildup which benefits plants and their roots.
Reduction of Runoff – Rain barrels help reduce storm runoff which flows directly into streams, lakes and other nearby bodies of water.
Rains pick up soil, oil, fertilizer, pesticides and other contaminants that can increase algae growth in lakes for example.

I have never had such a good experience at a hardware store. I was looking to pick out some paint for my dining room, and for a variety of reasons was having trouble landing on one. The woman working in the paint section was SO helpful talking to me about the different brands, different types or paint and of course the colors. She brought over a paper with the different kinds of wood trip for me to hold up against the different paint samples and talked to me about the number of drops of blue and black in a paint to give me a sense of how neutral the gray would be. Basically I had no idea it was possible for someone to help you pick a paint color, but it turns out it is. I love the paint color and am going to drive across town back to Annie’s specifically because I was so pleased with the service there before.
Also, the place is large and immaculate and really well stocked.
What a pleasant experience I had from the moment I walked through the door. Iluok, Nino, Jason and the young lady at the register were all respectful and extremely helpful. I only went in to get a few keys cut and ended up chatting it up with the employees and making a few additional purchases. This place has customer service down to a science.
Great neighborhood hardware store that’s easy to maneuver and is REALLY well staffed. I hardly ever have to track someone down for help. Very glad to be so close to this neighborhood gem.
Annie’s is a gem. The service is friendly, and the selection is more than adequate to be my one-stop hardware shop. Came in here and got some good advice from the store employees about how to hang my mirror.
And I love that they host the Bike House on Saturdays, an incredible neighborly bike repair group.
When my old grill from Sear’s finally wore out, I first went to a big box store to see what was out there. (What’s a guy in August going to eat in DC if he can’t grill a steak?) I ended up buying the grill I wanted at the same price from Annie’s, without the hassle and with a prompt (and personalized!) delivery. I’m really pleased with the cover I bought with the grill too, because the one from Sears wore out, and that accelerated the grill’s corrosion.
I’ve been using Annie’s for small purchases such as paint and gardening needs ever since they opened. When they don’t have something I need, such as a particular kind of doorknob, they are able to get it really quickly, and the friendly staff always helps me find the right item. The grill persuaded me that Annie’s is great for the bigger purchases too.
Lastly, how cool is the free bike clinic on Saturdays?
AWESOME local business!! Annie’s Ace Hardware is one of the best new businesses that has come to Petworth. The customer service is awesome and the staff is always standing by to assist with any project. The shelves are always fully stocked and always include seasonal items. Annie has a great way of making everyone feel welcome and makes shopping in her store a joy. Great addition to Petworth!
So so convenient. For it’s size, it has a great selection of gardening, plumbing, cleaning, and even bike repair supplies, tools and accessories, paints and stains, concrete and mortar, adhesives and tapes. They even have a small amount of wood and trims if you need a little bit fast for a small project. It’s a well-managed store and you’re not likely to find out-of-stock empty spaces as you often do in Home Depot or Walmart. They can order larger, more exotic, and bulk items from the corporate Ace catalog and have them delivered to the store usually in a couple days. On one bulk purchase I made, I was able to negotiate a discount quickly and easily without standing in an enormous customer service queue and being passed to a half-dozen associates to get to the right person. They also rent tools. It’s a great store.
I needed to have a paint color matched. Will was SO helpful and so nice. I was really impressed with the friendly attitudes and attention to service here. While I waited on my paint to mix, and three different employees asked if I needed help. Great service!
