Rain Barrel Progress

Today I got out my ladder and cleaned out my gutters that I will use to get my rain water from. I also took a broom on my garage roof and swept the shingles to get rid of any loose particles that might go into the gutters when the rain comes.

While doing this I also took measurements of where my barrels will be placed and established a mental layout of all the materials and placement of everything.

I will be ready to begin the construction this weekend.

One thing I am going to try to do before this weekend is power wash the barrels. This will have to be done before I construct the system. If all goes as planned by this weekend I will have a fully functional rain water harvesting system in three different locations, all serving different purposes.
