As installers of eavestroughing systems, Amazon Eavestroughing can also install a rain barrel for you as an environmental friendly solution for outdoor water use.
With the right rain barrel, rainwater can be saved and reused. Rain water harvesting is important because it decreases the high demand for domestic water in which residential irrigation can account for up to 40% of consumption.
By collecting rainwater and storing it in a rain barrel you will have water for future use, whether it is for watering the garden or just keeping it handy for emergency situations.
Rain barrels can also be set to slowly release the collected rainwater to areas that can soak up the water, reducing stormwater run off and increasing groundwater recharge.
Keep in mind rain barrels are not an alternative to a downpipe run off. They need to be put out of use in the winter months as freezing water can damage the barrel, tap and hoses hooked up to it.
We recommend you to select a barrel that you like and we will do the rest. We do not supply rain barrels but we can suggest a retailer near you.
