If you live in an area where it rains a lot, have you ever considered how much water comes down? Have you ever thought about making use of it? Many people do. There are numerous systems for catching rainwater. It can be a simple system where it is collected for watering crops, or it could be a complete system with filtration and pumps that will let you use it for drinking water. Using rainwater is an excellent way to preserve natural resources and save money.

If you just want to use the water for flushing toilets and doing laundry, you don’t have to be too concerned with filtration, but if it is going to be used for showers, brushing teeth and washing produce, you want it to be filtered. You should also consider where the water collects. If the surface where it runs is dirty, this can contaminate your water. It is especially important to have clean water if you also plan to drink it.
