Did you know: When rainwater is directed into a rain barrel, even 1/10 inch of rain can collect up to 63 gallons of water (based off of an average 1000 sq. ft roof). You can also use your rain barrel as a storage unit to save water even when it is not raining! One easy way is to put a bucket in your shower. So while you wait for the water to heat up, you’re not losing the first couple of gallons. Pour the saved water into your rain barrel to later use to water your trees or plants.
