The Missing Goonie
Has anyone setup a rain barrel(s) for water? I'm going to start with one and see how I like it. I was curious the pro, cons, watch to watch for ect with this setup.
If they connect so that the water will cascade, meaning that one will be full before it overflows to the other, it beats having to reach down to the bottom of both barrels. I suppose it all comes out the the same amount of reaching but if one person has short arms that person can take from the full one.I've seen dual barrel setups where the two are connected via a piece of hose at the top or at the bottom. What are the pros and cons between those connection points?
I think anything that gets the water into your pail/watering can/garden would work... providing it can handle the typical debris that will collect in the bottom of your particular setup. In my case i opt for full non-filtered flow and dip the water out with a bucket in the double setup. I get too much tree "stuff" from several varieties to make a pump practical... if you're out in the open or are filtering out the big stuff, I'd say go for the pump setup!Anyone have a comment to this type of setup? Good or bad?
Interesting aggregation of designs on a simple theme... I especially would appreciate the "Oxygenetics Hand Held Shower Head" in chrome finish about half way down the page. Certainly a necessary dress up item for my mundane gaudy blue plastic drums!
