How to Make Your Own Rain Barrel Water Catchment
Rain Barrel Water Catchment help with conserving water outdoors collecting rainwater – this water can then be used for outdoor purposes, such as watering the garden.
According to The Board of Water Supply City and County of Honolulu, using captured rainwater to irrigate your garden, will reduce the amount of potable (drinking) water used for non-drinking purposes. Research shows that up to 600 gallons of water can be collected from just one
inch of rain on a 1000 square foot rooftop – that’s enough water to fill twelve large fish tanks! Not only will the use of potable drinking water be reduced, but also the total amount on your water bill.
