Good idea for places that have rain trough the year. When I have rain I don't need to water, and after that this barrel will not last me for a day even.

Hi BonBon, I personally think this is a great idea.

Even if it is just enough to last you one day, no fertilizer can beat rain water.

And you can always get a bigger barrel...

HI Roelof I was saying the same thing, the people with a higher rainfall can consider this. Still don't have a way of getting the water into the tank thought......im not allowes to add gutters to my property.....bloody HOA

You know. This could work for where I live. In September months we get rain for 2 - 3 weeks non stop

I've seen an adaptation of this where you have many barrels in serial. That way if you have 5 X 220L barrels, you could collect up to 1100L of rain. That's enough for 5 days of watering for me ;)
