Capture water for your garden and keep our streams clean.

In our temperate climate, we rarely experience drought. To the contrary, our rainfall is generous, and in our dense urban/suburban environment, it can carry harmful pollutants into our waterways. Harvesting rain water with rain barrels under one or more of your downspouts provides an abundant source of water for your landscape, can help reduce your water bill, and protects our streams, rivers, and bay. Let your rain barrel drain into a conservation landscape or rain garden throughout a rain event for additional storm water and pollutant reduction.

Good info. Lucky me I found your blog by accident
(stumbleupon). I have bookmarked it for later!

I did a lot of reeasrch before purchasing this rain diverter for my rain barrels. It was our first attempt at collecting rain and I wanted everything to work right with no problems and that is what I got. They have worked like a charm and I don’t have one ounce of regret for spending a little more for the RainReserve brand. It wasn’t too difficult attaching them to our downspouts, just follow the well written instructions and you will be collecting rainwater before you know it. Now, if it would just dry out enough for me to need the water I have collected.
