There are many ways to reduce your water usage. Rain barrels are a simple, cost-effective and stylish way to do so. Read on to find out how you can set up and use a rain barrel system at home to conserve water.
Reduce your Water Usage With Rain Barrels
We are no strangers to water. Many of our services require water to do a proper job. With this in mind, we always try to be conscientious and find ways to reduce our water usage. For example, not running the water when it isn’t needed and conserving water where we can. We also dispose of our non-toxic water in places that can use it such as around plants and trees.
As a homeowner, you may already be trying to reduce your water usage through turning off the water while brushing your teeth or taking shorter showers. But have you ever thought of using a rain barrel to help reduce your household water consumption? It’s easy and cost effective, especially during the summer months when it’s necessary to water the lawn and garden.
Setting up a Rain Barrel Water System
Rain barrels provide a free water source for irrigation and ease reliance on the city’s water supply. You can use your downspout as the source for the barrel to catch rainwater. If you don’t have a downspout, you can use the barrel to just catch the rain. This system works well in Vancouver. The rain barrel is an easy (and stylish!) way to effectively reduce your water usage.
