Clean water is a precious commodity… many people in the world would have a better quality of life if only they had clean water. Collecting rainwater is not new, but in today’s “green movement” many have installed a rain barrel to collect water for the purpose of watering their plants.
How much water can you collect? Here are the numbers… For every inch of rain falling on 500 square feet of roof, it adds up to approximately 300 gallons of water. Most areas in the US could collect over 1,000 gallons of water per year to use in watering container gardens, house plants, vegetable garden and even your lawn.
