After our house was built we started buying and growing plants for our garden. Then my husband told me he was worried our water bill would be to high after watering all our plants. I told him not to worry because we can use the rain water we save that pours down the downspouts from the roof of our house. We just need to store it in plastic or stainless steel barrels. We decided to just use plastic barrels because we can buy them in town easily, but we preferred to have stainless steel because it last longer and is more environment friendly than plastic. Anyway, we can now save enough water to keep our plants watered for about 2 weeks which helps us keep our water bill low.
