Re: Rain Barrels for Christmas

I disagree with Peter - although rain water is not potable, there are dozens of reasons to use it on our plants instead of the processed water from the city. #1 it has no chlorine added to it. Bottom line - we cannot possibly run our irrigation water through some sort of purification process - it's not going to happen because of the intensive expenses related to it. Rain water is free, using a rain barrel keeps the rain out of our storm water systems - it's better for communities all the way around!
