Water is scarce during the summer months and that's when 40% of water is spent outdoors! Why not save your precious resources by using a Good Ideas, Rain Saver. Our rain barrels and other rain harvesting equipment will put every last drop to good use. 600 gallons of water will drain off of a regular 1000 square foot roof after only an inch of rain. Rain barrels are a popular way to capture that rain water. You then keep that water from running off into sewers where most of it ends up leeching into lakes, rivers, and streams, contaminating fragile eco-cultures. And this is water that could be used in your gardens, lawn, or most other around-the-house functions. Your plants will enjoy the fresh, additive-free, water supply and you won't have to waste your money on running hoses. And if you're looking for other ways to help the planet, browse our line of composters as well.
