Have you been thinking about getting a rain barrel? Did you know that 600 gallons of water will fall on a 1,000 sq. ft. roof after only an inch of rain? Don’t let that precious rain water go to waste, capture it in a rain barrel.

With a rain barrel you can collect and store rainwater from your rooftop to be used later for things like watering the lawn, flowers, and vegetable plants in your garden. In fact, a rain barrel can help lower water costs and can save approximately 1,300 gallons of water during peak summer months.

Rain barrels also help reduce water pollution by reducing urban stormwater runoff, which can contain chemicals and pollutants such as oil, grease, bacteria and sediment. A rain barrel is a great way for you to conserve water and help the environment at the same time.

  1. If every household would consider making use of a rain barrel, 1,300 gallons of water would be saved during peak summer months by each house hold. That’s a lot of water to save. There is a misconception that when it rains it goes directly into the fresh water supply and helps recharge the water table. This however is not true. Not all water sinks into the ground. Rain water is aggregated in the drains and ends up traveling out to the ocean. Why waste rain water when we can collect it and help reduce the stress on the current water distribution system. However collecting rain water is just one of the things you can do to conserve water, visit BeWaterWise.com and read numerous other tips. For details visit http://tr.im/ryxC
