A 5-minute Video to Build Your Own Rain Barrel
There’s so much that can be done to stop overwatering and help conserve water. Last week we talked about the “three S’s” for being a good steward of your water—slow it, spread it, and sink it. One of the best ways to “slow it” is to store it, and the State Water Boards have a 5-minute video (okay, 5:37) that shows you how you can build and install your very own rain barrel and even daisy-chain them together for more storage.
Rain barrels are a great tool to harness your rainwater and reduce your water bill in the days and weeks following the rain. Even better, rebates are available throughout Orange County for up to $75 per barrel (and up to four barrels per home!) at a minimum of 50-gallon barrels. Better yet? Gnorman’s here to help. Reach out at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll be happy to help you fill out the forms!
If you don’t feel like building your own, you can always purchase and install a rain barrel following the same techniques in the video. Many home improvement stores carry rain barrels and they start right around $75. Hint—that great rebate still applies and so does our offer to help fill it out!
Prepare today and be ready for the rain!
