Rainwater Collection


It is important that the rain barrel is set up on a level surface. To optimize pressure and flow of water, the barrel should be placed above the area where water will be dispensed.

Springtime rains offer great opportunities to collect rain water.

The average roof (1000 sq. ft.) will collect over 600 gallons of water with just 1 inch of rainfall. Even 1/8 inch of rain is plenty to fill a 54 gallon rain barrel.
A rainwater collection system’s basics components include a roof, rain gutters, storage and distribution. Seamless rain gutters collect water runoff from the roof and direct it to a rain barrel for storage.

Rain water collection is regularly used around the world, especially in areas that are dry or have little access to water. Rainwater collection captures, diverts and stores non-potable rainwater that can be used for watering landscapes and gardens, flushing toilets, washing clothes or cars.

Using a rain barrel at home:

  • Reduces demand on existing water supplies
  • Conserves water in the summer months
  • Lowers water and waste water bills
  • Minimizes erosion
  • Decreases contamination of rivers, lakes and streams from runoff pollution
