Begin Saving On A Rainy Day By Installing Rain Barrels
By: Pam Beck
It is a small project, but installing rain barrels onto your downspouts will capture free non-potable water that could make a big difference in your garden.
How much water? Depending on the size of your roof and your catchment system, a rainfall of only 1-inch should fill a typical 55-gallon rain barrel to overflowing. That is a lot of water that you won’t have to pay for later.
What about eliminating mosquitoes potentially attracted to the standing water? Use Mosquito Dunks® made with B.t.i., bacillus thuringiensis israelensis, a naturally occurring biological control that is safe for birds and pets.
