Rainwater collecting is just one of the best ways to save water. Constructing your own rain barrel for rainwater collecting purposes at home is simple. All you have to do is to construct the base first. You can opt to use concrete blocks to make it more stable. Next is to position the diverter in its proper height and then cut the downspout. After cutting the downspout, it is now time for you mount both the downspout and the converter. Now that you have installed them, it is now time for you to connect the barrels with each other and the final step for you to have a rainwater collecting system is to connect the diverter to the barrels. Now that you already have your rainwater collecting system, you can already have enough water for your plants, cleaning purposes and more.
