Rainwater collection is a tried and true tradition that is generating new interest in the age-old technology. A rain barrel collects water and stores it to provide an ample supply of free 'soft water' containing no chlorine, lime or calcium making it ideal for gardens. A rain barrel will save most homeowners about 1,300 gallons of water during the peak summer months. Saving water not only helps protect the environment but also saves you money by decreasing demand for treated tap water or decreasing electricity used to pump well water. Each rain barrel is $80
and comes with everything needed for installation.
