Instructables website shares how to make a 275 gallon rain barrel rainwater catchment system for your home.
Rainwater is amazing to water your garden with because it contains no chlorine.
If there is a long term disaster and your cities utilities (power, water and sewer ) shut down …. what are your options for available water ?
Rainwater always needs to be treated before drinking for safety sake.
Beware that harvesting rainwater in some cities is illegal while other cities encourage it…. please check your local laws.
Farm and Feed stores are a great place to get water storage tanks.
3 years ago, a friend was able to get a 550 gallon dark green water storage tank for less than 500$.
Empty it weighed less than 50lbs.
