Water is a valuable resource. These days it can be in short supply in almost any country around the world. As we all make a conscious effort to protect the environment and such resources harvesting rainwater seems a sensible option.
In order to successfully harvest rainwater most people install a water butt or barrel. This can either be a purpose bought water butt or made by you. People often utilise old wooden barrels which they then line with polythene.
Old plastic bins are also a good option. However, buying a water butt is relatively cheap and such water butts are tough and will last a long time. Of course once you have a rain water butt you need to know what to do next.
Here is a step by step guide:
You will need
Alternatively an old bin or barrel which is large enough to use
Small amount of gravel
Concrete slabs or old bricks
Alternatively wood to build a stand for the water butt
Hose for connecting more than one water barrel or butt
Connection to the fall or down pipe
