Collecting rain water from rooftops is a simple and sustainable way of gathering water that can also help soil and water quality by reducing erosion and run-off.

Many buildings are already fitted with gutters that are sufficient for rainwater catchment and all that is required is the installation of one or more collection tanks – a 50 gallon drum can be a good start for home garden use – and pipes diverting down spouts to tanks.

Using rainwater for irrigation

In most cases rainwater collected from roofs can be used directly on gardens during dry weather.

Using rainwater drinking

Depending on local air quality, rainwater may need to be settled or purified before drinking.
