Rain Barrel

Rain barrels save water by catching the runoff from your roof. But the water in the barrel can be hard to use for many applications (like car washing) because the pressure is too low. To increase pressure, the system here slowly pumps water from several rain barrels to a central collection tank high off the ground (in a garage attic, for example). That way, gravity keeps the water pressure high, and you can use the hose anywhere in the yard.
