Small water tanks, drums or ‘rain barrels’ are great for the hobby rainwater collector & DIY enthusiast but we advocate bigger water tanks, if possible. Many people start off with a very simple rain collection system with low storage capacity and quickly find out that bigger water tanks are required for collecting useful amounts of rainwater. However, as the article below outlines, you can start off with a simply water drum rain collection system which is both inexpensive and easy to install.
If you are just looking for a simple and easy way to collect a bit of extra rainwater to use for washing the car or watering the garden, you may not want to go to the hassle and expense of getting a full rainwater system installed for you. Instead, you can easily make your own rainwater tank with a little bit of time and knowhow. Here’s what you need to know.
If you like to keep your car looking spic and span, or you have plants that have large water requirements, you might like to have access to a little extra water, especially in these days of water restrictions and shortages. A little extra water tank gives the freedom to do so, and can also save you a bit of extra money on your water bills. In these cases, you only require a small water tank or water drum, and it may not be worth the time and money of installing a proper rainwater tank system. A water tank or drum that you can make and install yourself is the perfect solution.
Now, all you have to do is wait for some rain and you’re ready to use your water tanks!
