Conserve household water and save on your water bill. Use a natural resource abundant in Rainwater! Rainwater can be harvested and stored in rain barrels and used for a variety of non-potable needs. RainyDayBarrel.com offers the average household an affordable easy option for rainwater harvesting.
A rain barrel is a system that collects and stores rainwater from your roof that would otherwise run off your roof or through downspouts and become stormwater, picking up pollutants on its way to a storm drain, stream, or lake. Rain barrels are to make use of rain water for later use, reduce water use for economic or environmental reasons, and aid self-sufficiency. Stored water may be used for watering gardens, agriculture, flushing toilets, in washing machines, washing cars, and also for drinking, especially when other water supplies are unavailable, expensive, or of poor quality. A rain barrel will save most homeowners about 1,300 gallons of water during the peak summer months.
Why buy a rain barrel?
It's an environmentally friendly option. Cities spend a huge amount of money and energy to treat water so that it is suitable to drink, and then pump it to our homes. But rainwater falls from the sky naturally, for free.
Plants grow better with natural water compared to chlorinated.
Drinking water is a precious commodity. By using rain barrels, you'll be conserving it instead of dumping it on your yard.
Saving water not only helps protect the environment, it saves you money and energy!
