Water has more thermal mass than any other material, so it wouldn't hurt. The 
water in a week will start turning into a pond , so keep that in mind.

 The Great Challenges we now face as a species present the very opportunities 
that are giving birth to Ecological, Psychological, and Spiritual

Subject: [permaculture] water barrels as thermal mass

I have a tiny 8' x 12' greenhouse that I was thinking of putting 3 55
gallon water barrels in for thermal mass.  This time of the year 2-3
degrees would make a big difference early in the morning but wondering
if anyone has experience with this & would know if  3 barrels would
make any difference?
