With our most important resource water, becoming a crisis, it’s easy to understand why people have been collecting their own H20. It’s not something that can be remade or replenished in a couple of years. It’s a scary reality we as humans have to face.
As suburban areas become more and more populated, the restriction on water usage rises. This is why a lot of people have opted to save up their own rainwater. It’s free and falls from the sky every so often so why not?
Here are a few reasons why you should consider capturing your own water:
Your garden will thank you
The rainwater that you capture is the preferred liquid food all your plants want. It’s so much cleaner (mineral and salt wise) than the tap water we usually use to hydrate our garden. And it doesn’t cause a build-up of minerals and salt in the soil.
Having a water tank installed in your garden or yard is not going to break the bank, and with all the money you’ll be saving by using rainwater, it basically ends up paying for itself.
Nowadays there are great options to choose from. You can even opt for an underground tank that is completely out of sight. Water tank installation can even be done on any terrain as long as you decide on getting the right tank for the surface it will be standing on.
Saving rainwater is very good for the environment because you’re helping save a resource that one day might run out. So gathering water freely from the sky, you’re doing planet earth and humanity a huge favour.
Your own supply
When the next drought hits, you’ll be prepared with the water you’ve saved throughout the year. You won’t be worrying about little things like watering your garden, washing your car and filling your swimming pool to cool off during the heat. Saved rainwater can even be used for your toilets and washers. The water you’ll end up saving will be so much more in the long run.
In the times we live in today, capturing your own water is important. Even if you think it’s just a waste of time. In the long run, it’s easy on your pocket, good for our planet and our gardens will love us. We are all in this together, so why not do the right thing and save water.
