Save money and keep water out of the sewer system!
Capture the water that used to drain into the sewer system from your roof leader by using a rain barrel. Here are just some of the things you can do with the water from a rain barrel:
- Water gardens, lawns, and hanging plants
- Easily fill watering cans
- Wash cars or pets
- Connect a soaker hose to automatically empty the barrel
You can make your own rain barrel by following these simple instructions from DIY Network.
