|Over time the netting has faded, gotten kind of brittle, and torn.|
|This particular barrel gets a lot of debris. It accumulates over the drain holes and dries there. That makes it harder for the water to get in during the next rain.|
|The role is 6 feet long and 16 inches wide.|
I took the picture below after it rained. This barrel has both the pond filter and the mosquito netting. It appears to have worked well. The debris isn't clogging the drain holes.
I didn't use mosquito netting on this barrel. A lot of the debris worked its way down into the filter. I don't know how easy that's going to be to clean. I'm hoping that I can just hose it out from the other side. That's a project for another day.
