Zen and the art of rain barrel maintenance

Rain barrels are an all-time great innovation:

Easy to set up, gravity fed, and a great way to conserve.

Even better yet – they don’t require batteries.

The only time they don’t work is when it doesn’t rain ...


Or if it rains too much.

That's when you might want a spill over plan.

Yeah...and when the mosquitos are "brewing," in them! ;-)

A rain barrel is the essence of conservation simplicity. Of course, as Ciss mentioned, mosquitoes might be a problem...
