Wow, the man from Canada, with his video, is very creative! Using old batteries, recycling old LED screens from broken yard lamps, & really loved how he even charges his two cell phones on this whole system! I thoroughly enjoyed his video!

Wondering about the contents that were previously in the black barrels, one says soap as you said, so should be safe & not even have to be washed out as soap water is good for plants & lawn ... but if others had chemicals in them, wouldn't you have to really wash them out very, very well? I have heard to use food grade (or even soap in this case) barrels. Were they just free from the Maple Auto Corp?

Wondering about the battery he is going to put under your deck steps ... will he have to build a shelter of some sort over the battery to protect it from rain & weather, or perhaps insert backings on the steps?
