Rain Harvesting

Since I lived  here in the US, I haven’t really experienced the loss of supply of water. If the water will be shut down, there will always be a notice at our door saying the exact time that the water won’t run. I don’t even take note of it because it is just usually about two hours and in the middle of the afternoon.
I remember when I lived in the Philippines and my landlady would collect water from the rain because there was a water crisis going on in the city at that time. It would have been better is she used one of these rain barrels instead of just a regular pail.

I think rain barrels are a great idea for rain harvesting so we can save water for later use. This water can be used to water the plants, clean the driveway etc. I know water is cheaper compared to electricity but if there is loss of water, everyone if affected. I’ve been there many times before and it was hard. At this time, I don’t have an outdoor space to collect rain but this is something I would do in the future if I ever move out of a condominium unit and have some outdoor space.

Thank you simplyrainbarrels.com for letting me write about rain water barrel once gain. This post is brought to you by their website.
