3 Ideas for Collecting Rain Water
Okay. So we live in a rainy area. Make the most of it with 3 popular techniques to collect clean freshwater. Rainwater is ideal for watering plants, cleaning the car or adding to the pool. The average household can save up to 1,300 gallons of municipal water solely during the dry summer months.
1. Small Collection: Use a rain barrel under your downspout to collect enough water for tending to gardens and plants.
2. Medium: Use Cisterns for medium-sized repositories of rainwater. A cistern collects from a water source such as a roof or catchment area. Placed under- or above ground, cisterns hold enough water for cleaning the car or washing windows.
3. Rainwater Tanks: These plastic tanks hold anywhere from 10 gallons to 125 gallon of water. Perfect for storing water for a number of different uses around the home.
Note: Don’t forget to check your CC&R’s for approval of the use of these containers.
