Why Collect Rainwater?
Water conservation is important to preserve our fresh water supply. Other than the possible savings, rain barrels can be used to conserve water, help reduce water bills and reduce pollution by reducing storm water runoff. Rain barrels can be used to save water for plants during dry periods. They can also be arranged to slowly release the collected rain fall to areas that can soak up the water, reducing storm water runoff and increasing groundwater recharge.
Water bills have doubled for many people in the last decade and water costs are likely to continue increasing. Rainwater harvesting is great for reducing water costs. Up to 40% of water used is for outdoor uses.
So don’t miss out on taking advantage of Nature’s free gift to us. Instead consider a rainwater collection system -
Plants actually prefer natural rainwater
Watering with treated tap water is not only expensive but is not really beneficial to plants and shrubs. Chemicals contained in treated “city” water actually slows plant growth.
Plants thrive on natural rainwater – not only is it free from chlorine and other treatments added by the water dept. but is free of dissolved minerals and salts.
How to collect rainwater?
