Recently installed a rainwater catchment system here at Casa Fogelquist.  It wasn’t quite finished when this video was done.  However now it’s completely functional.  Of course during the drought there has been no rain to initially fill the tanks.  However the water we use to water the plants on our patio is collected and directed into the tanks.  So we now have over 1000 gallons of this recycled water to use for watering.

I’m still working out the bugs… For instance recently we had a pipe burst and lost about 400 gallons… Doh!

 

Can't wait to hear what you have to say about this...
