When the rain is falling outside, do you ever consider collecting it? Many homes have a simple system for collecting water, placing a barrel under a downspout to get water for later use to water a lawn or something similar, but there are other, more sophisticated ways that you can benefit from collecting rainwater. Depending on how you want to use the water, you might need a system that is more involved. Water for flushing toilets and watering crops won’t need much cleaning, but if you want to use it in your shower or washing machine or even drinking it, a filtration system needs to be installed. It is important to consider where you will collect the water as well. If it runs over a roof that has lead paint, you can end up with harmful paint flakes in your water, and if it runs over a roof that has a lot of bird droppings, you could get diseases from it.
