Why rain barrels?
Rain water is a free resource, that otherwise runs off of our rooftops and down the drain, or the ditch. Rain barrels and cisterns require little maintenance and are a great way to save money and conserve water as a natural resource.
With a rain barrel you can:
- Cut your household use of water during the hot summer months.
- Water your plants with chlorine-free rainwater that they prefer.
- Clean your car, bike, tools, etc. without ever using the faucet.
- Provide water to livestock.
- Save money on water bills.
- Protect local streams and Puget Sound.
