Who We Are

Desert Plastics is in Albuquerque, New Mexico, a city that averages less than 9 inches of rain per year. We know something about saving water! We have been manufacturing rain barrels into this market for 19 years and we are now the #1 rain barrel manufacturer in the entire southwest. To highly paraphrase Abe Lincoln: “You can’t fool that many people!”

We are the manufacturer. You have an open invitation to stop in and see our manufacturing facility in Albuquerque. We do not run our business out of an undisclosed location, making it easy to abandon you by closing a web site.

We proudly place our products into the marketplace for your consideration.

Tijeras Rain Barrels – simply the best!

There are rain catchers and then there are Tijeras Rain Barrels. Our attractive, economical and innovative rain barrels are expertly manufactured to meet your specific needs. We customize our rain barrels by installing the valves and overflow wherever YOU want them to be.

Our resins are 100% food grade and recyclable. This is very important in an emergency.

Tijeras Rain Barrels are made from recyclable virgin resin, FDA approved for contact with potable water. Our valves and fittings are professional grade, and all fittings are welded into place. There are no gaskets, which means “no gaskets – no leaks”. We guarantee it! Custom fittings locations are available at no additional charge.

Be Careful! Be Picky! Be Intelligent!

It is our core philosophy that our customers are intelligent and should be treated as so. We do not ask you to believe flowery claims, illogical statements, and impossible-to-check testimonials while claiming to support and/or belong to a host of environmental groups. The internet is full of very friendly-looking, well-produced websites that make such claims.

Our competitors try to distract the customer with flashy websites, but our goal is to provide the best products for capturing naturally clean water. Do not fall for other marginally designed products that will soon disappoint.

Rain Barrel Manufacturer, Customer at the Core


No matter whose rain catcher you buy, please make sure that you completely understand the product and that you have thought out all of the details surrounding it. Finally, our compliments on your decision to harvest water!
