Rain Barrel – Homemade #2

Bob R. got inventive!

“When I moved into my home four years ago I had the roof drains piped to the downsloped edge of the woods. I have attached catch basins to two of them and connected them to each other with a 1.5 inch pvc pipe. I then connected one of them to three heavy duty trash barrels which are interconnected at the bottom. They fill up …. about 130 gallons…. with a small rain. Now I have a good source of water for my outside plants.
