Rain Barrels - Saving You Money



By Shawn Mcculloc




The entire "green" industry is progressively focusing more and more on environmentally friendly production and products. With increased incentives backed by government agencies as well as the general consensus that environmental stability needs to start now, more and more companies are developing new innovative products to adhere to this. In some ways it's a shame that the only way to cause change is through monetary incentive programs or the need to be trendy, the counter-argument is the need to put food on the table or fuel in the yacht or the increased cost of doing business.
Whatever the case may be, positive change is good relating to the environment. Now this isn't stating change can only happen through big business, even the end consumer, can have a major impact. So you might be asking, where's my incentive program? The answer is, certain products can actually save you money, and this isn't just pocket change. Hundreds of dollars per year really adds up: take a minimal amount, $350 per year. You save that in a high interest savings account, 20 years down the road you have close to $10,000! Want to start saving money today? An excellent and reliable option is rain barrels.
So what is a rain barrel? Rain barrels are basically rain collectors that are placed at the base of your down spouts around your home. If you have ever noticed how much rain water pours out of these spouts during a sever rain storm, you can see the potential this product boasts. And the advantages are simple, during a storm these barrels fill up, when it comes time to water your grass again, you can attach your hose directly to the barrel. These rain barrels have the ability to hold a lot of water, most can hold 60-100 gallons!
With this product you save in numerous ways: watering grass is expensive, you will notice a drastic decrease in your monthly water bill with the usage of this product, grass replacement can be expensive and labor intensive, this products ensures your grass stays healthy and green, and lastly having extensive water around the foundation of a home can be risky. Many of the down spouts found around homes, directs water into a pool which then seeps into the ground and can potentially cause major problems with leaky basements and water damaged foundations.
Many products are on the market claiming to save you money, and some of them will. The advantage a rain barrel has, is the fact that not only does it save you money, it truly can be a visual-appealing addition to your yard. These rain barrels are very enviro-wise, they also have a very modern look which results in a very stylish piece of garden décor for your backyard or home landscape. Various colors and textures are available, making them adapt easily to your décor style. Take the positive step towards environmental stability and make a rain barrel a part of your home! The rain barrels will save you money, in a stylish fashion.

Tips for How To Install a Rain Barrel

Place your Rain Barrel on a Level Surface: Remember Safety,Safety, Safety should always be on you mind when you do any project,so, use only a flat and a very level surface for the position of your Rain barrel. Place your Rain Barrel on blocks, if  possible. Full rain barrels can weigh in excess of 456 lbs(8.33x55). when full and you don't want the rain barrel to fall over when full.

Downspout Kit: After you have setup  your rain water barrel, you will need to remove a part on of your gutter for the downspout kit connector in-order to direct the rain water into your rain barrel.

Excess Water: Be sure the over-flow connector or faucet is in your Rain barrel and positioned  away from your  building foundation.

Winter Storage: In areas where the water can freeze Empty or drain your rain water barrel, remove the faucet, connector hose, and any drain plugs before storing. When possible relocate your barrel to a protected area but if the rain water barrel must remain outside turn it upside down and secure it to prevent rain water accumulation which can freeze and possibly damage your rain barrel.

Rain Barrel Basics

Rain Barrel Basics

Rain water has been collected for many years. About 1,000 years ago, people in England were collecting water in simple clay pots. The same practices are being carried out with rain barrels today.

We do not have a limitless amount of water, and with the rising cost of city water, it’s more important than ever to save water. Not only does it contribute to saving our natural resources but it also saves money overall.

Most people believe that water is an infinite resource. The truth is that  water is becoming more scarce. Underground water chambers that provide water are being heavily depleted, and there is not enough water to replace the used water. With a rain barrel, you can stop using govermental water sources and start saving money and help the environment!

This report  is intended to  explain the benefits of rain barrels.  After reading this manual, you will lean how valuable rain barrels can be and how easy you can make a rain barrel.

Why Use a Rain Barrel?

Over sixty-Five percent of the Earth is covered by water, yet only 2.% is fresh water and the rest is sea salt water. And out of that, most of it is found inside glaciers and ice caps.
The fresh water that is purified and pouring out of your sink everyday is found in freshwater streams, lakes and rivers. And due to desertification and contamination, much of that water is threatened. With such little usable water available, it is even more critical that water be saved.
As a result of our depletion of natural resources, conserving water decreases the demand for domestic water from those rivers and lakes. Residential irrigation can use up to forty percent of the area’s water. By using rain barrels, you not only help contribute to saving water and therefore the environment overall, but you save money personally!

If you live in an  rainy area, collecting rainwater with a rain barrel can save you a surprising amount on your water bill. Even if you live in an area without much rain, the few times during the year it does rain can help later during the hotter, drier months. Or if you live in a rural area with a well, you may find that a rain barrel helps harvest rainwater much easier. Of course, once someone sees how something helps, momentum can pick up. If you start harvesting rainwater in a rain barrel, the idea can catch on in your community, thereby saving everyone water. Since all of us (humans, animals and plants) need water to survive, you are helping everyone out!
Rain Barrels can be used in a variety of ways. Most people tend to use it in their garden, where they can just pour the water directly onto the flowers and grass and more. Although you can drink rainwater, it takes special filtering treatment to do so. Additionally, many cities require the water drinking system to be a certified filtration system, and that the water is tested regularly. Rain Barrels for your garden are beneficial to the garden, since rain is a natural soft water without minerals, chlorine or other chemicals. Your garden, in turn, will continue to grow and thrive in appreciation for giving it natural ingredients.

How-To Collect Water

Collecting water differs depending on the system used. Some are more advanced, involving pumps and flow controls, while others simply catch all the rain they can.
The first thing to measure is your roof catchment area, or the total square feet of your house plus your eaves. Rain falls evenly everywhere, so the shape of your roof does not matter, just the space it encompasses and the surrounding area. Measure the area of the outside walls, and then add the overhand of any eaves. For example, a house that measures 42x 48 feet with 2-foot eaves means you add 4 feet to each wall for a total measurement of 46x52 feet. Then multiply the length times the width (46 times 52) to find the total roof catchment area (in this case, it’s 2392 sq ft).
So what does this mean? For every inch of rain that falls in 1,000 square feet of your catchment area, there is up to 600 gallons of rainwater. Four inches of rainfall means there are 2,400 gallons of rainwater you can collect! Let’s round up our example house to 2400 square feet. This means that this house could catch up to 1440 gallons (since you multiply 600 gallons times 2.4). Think of how much you’ll have saved and added to your water supply just by using a rain barrel!
Harvesting systems are not 100% accurate; most of the time, they fall between 70-90%, since all Rain Barrel systems are going to lose some rain water due to gutters spilled, wind or evaporation. However, it’s still quite an improvement from zero!

Rain Barrels

Now that you know how much you can save, it’s easy to see why a rain barrel is such a great investment. Of course, you want to figure out the best kind of harvesting system for yourself.
Choosing a Rain barrel depends on how much you can spend, how much space you have, and the type of barrel. Any rain barrel you choose should have a good container that holds liquid. For those that think a trash can will work just fine will learn that it cannot stand water pressure for very long. This does not mean you need to choose the most expensive rain barrel, but don’t try to cut back and save money by using an inferior piece of equipment.
If you’re on a budget or don’t have much space, put a rain barrel under a gutter downspout diverter to save water. A 30 Gallon rain barrel is probably the best way to go, since you don’t want a giant one that will take up too much space. For a more complex system, connect several rain barrels with PVC pipes or hoses, and pump the water directly into the garden to drain all the rain barrels at once.

Where you put your rain barrel is crucial, since you want to collect as much rainwater as possible. Place it on ground that is level, because when it reaches its maximum capacity, it will be considerably heavier and can tip over on unstable ground.

If you live in a colder climate, disconnecting rain barrels during the winter is a good idea to avoid water constantly thawing and freezing. The construction of the rain barrel can weaken or crack, so keep it out of the cold and store it upside down to keep it clean until it starts raining.

Rain barrels on the market today offer all sorts of handy attachments or special parts that make harvesting your rainwater even easier. Spigot, overflow fittings, automatic overflow, and drain plugs are just a few. Again, depending on how rainy the area you live in is you can choose from smaller sized rain barrels to ones that store over fifty gallons of water. Whatever rain barrel you choose, make sure it has a cover and can fit in your backyard.

Safety First

Two rules must always be followed when it comes to Rain Barrels
1:  Never leave your rain barrel uncovered or open with out a downspout diverter   attached.
2. Always keep you rain barrel faucet closed between uses. This way, it won’t get dirty with leaves,yard debris or insects and will avoid becoming contaminated.
3. Also, any system you use should come with a downspout diverter system to keep out silt, soil and leaves or have .

Not only do you want to keep your water clean, but you also want to be safe. Be careful with rain barrels and small children. Some rain barrels are massive, and children can drown in just a few feet of water. Plus, animals (both domesticated and wild) can become trapped and drown in the barrels. Moreover, standing water is home to swarms of mosquitoes. Since the West Nile virus is growing and mosquitoes are generally unwelcome creatures, extra precautions must be taken to keep mosquitoes away from rain barrels, such as emptying water within ten days or buying a rain barrel with a mesh screen or using a Rain Barrel Downspout Diverter.

Some containment, unfortunately, in bound to happen. Leaves, dust, and the elements in general will affect the water. It’s fine to use on your garden, since that water would fall on those plants anyhow, but in order to drink it, you will absolutely need a good filtering system.

If your unsure of how much pollution is in your area, go talk to someone at your city hall or a municipal official about how many pollutants are in the area and how it may affect the quality of the rainwater.
