Thread: Water/Rain harvesting
03-23-2010, 10:52 PM #1
Does anyone on here do any rainwater harvesting, or in other words collect rainwater from roofs of buildings?
I am thinking about maybe building a system to help water my garden and some trees that I will be planting. In spring my lawn and plants are fine, mid summer is all dried out. My ground around my neighborhood is very sandy so it dries fast.
Also have to foresee that I live in a freezing climate, so easy to winterize is a requirement.
Looking for anyone with experience and input

exactly, rain barrels, I thought of doing something more than just a 40-55 gal barrel. Something alittle bigger feed by two drainage spouts from the roof.

I'm guessing you may have to bury your system to keep the water from freezing during cold spells. Good luck w/your project.
