We got our system installed in January, before we had significant rainfall. The husband designed, and set up the system himself, I told ya he was handy 🙂 We anxiously awaited the rain, because we were ready to collect 3500 gallons of water….yeah, we got a little crazy!
Our average amount of rainfall is usually around 30 inches. As of today, almost every tank is FULL, from only about 15 inches of rain! Our rainy season usually ends by April, so we’ve probably collected the max. amount for this year. We anticipate that we’ll use all the water this summer. So without further adieu, here are pictures of our do-it-yourself system.
Hope you enjoyed the picture tour of our system, and that I’ve inspired you to consider rainwater harvesting!
Should this be something (maybe on a smaller scale), that most of us do? Share your thoughts!
