Rain Barrels

July 7th, 2017 | by Mark Tulloch | in |    0   

How many times have you gotten a water bill that was high enough to send you crying? Your bill represents daily watering of your plants, water given to pets, and simple use of water that could be replaced with rain water. Did you know that rain water is just as safe for your pets and plants as that from the tap or bottle? No matter what method you use to do these tasks, it could be much cheaper and easier with the use of rain barrels that act as a source of your free household water.

From rinsing off a driveway to cleaning your tennis shoes or any other household or business use of water that doesn’t involve drinking or cooking, there are just times when the use of water doesn’t necessarily depend on the use of paid-for water from the water department. There are also times when tap water isn’t even safe and must first be boiled for some time before it can be used when there are issues with the system that your water company uses.

On the other hand, with a rain drain – which you can find offered in various colors – you know that the water you need for these household tasks is available at no cost whatsoever to you. These barrels collect the water that falls during a rain shower, allowing you to further use the water in order to water your loved animals and pets, while also taking care of simple tasks that require the use of water.

Rain barrels are a great different way to create efficiency within your home, offering a greater amount of use from the decorations that you put around your home. The exterior of your home is more beautiful while your tasks are quicker and easier, costing much less money.

You can choose from several different colors, including:

  • Terra Cotta
  • Sandstone
  • Greenstone
  • Greystone
  • Whitestone

The colors are pretty much able to match any landscape, giving you the best use from perfect decorations possible.

You may not realize how much more you are spending on water to do frivolous tasks that don’t even require the use of tap water. While you may think it is just easier to get the hose and get your dog some water or spray over your plants, the truth is that collecting rain water could be the best way possible to do the same things without having to pay for it at the end of the month.
