As water become a more precious and expensive commodity, many people are turning to rainwater collection. Local populations consistently grow but, unfortunately, the local water supply usually does not. Conservation efforts can lead to dead lawns and limited access to water. A simple way to increase the amount of water at your disposal is through the use of a rain harvesting system. Whether utilized as a main water source or as a backup, rain collection provides a free source of fresh water. This reduces reliance on the municipal water supply and the costs associated with it. Additionally, rain collection can abate drainage problems along with soil and foundation erosion from storm runoff and water pooling. Rainwater can be used for a myriad of indoor and outdoor purposes: from washing the car, pets, and laundry to bathing and drinking, depending on the purification system and local regulations.
Rain harvesting systems are durable and easy to install and maintain. Rain harvesting increases self-sufficiency regardless of setting: urban, rural, arid, wet, commercial, or residential. The Tank-Depot offers a wide range of collection systems to choose from for flexibility in implementation into existing structures or the design of new construction.

Generally, they are opaque to minimize exposure to light in order to slow algae growth. They can be decorative or purely functional in style, and sizes usually range from 40 gallons to 80 gallons. They are great for conserving water, energy, and money, since water will not need to be purchased for outdoor watering. Collected rainwater is perfect for a number of non-potable, water-intensive activities like watering plants or washing windows, pets, and vehicles.
Made from a variety of materials, rain barrels can be used year round, and are commonly positioned under downspouts to collect water draining from the roof top. Many barrels come with screened lids to limit debris from entering. The hose shutoff valve imbedded in most barrels allow the filling of watering cans or the connection of hoses for direct watering or to chain barrels together to increase capacity.
