After several days of thunderstorms, I checked on rain barrels. So far so good water is in the barrels.
Did have to tighten the drain plug on both rain barrels. A small drip which I quickly remedy that situation.
Below is a photo of the rain barrel filling up a 1.5 gallon bucket.
Each barrels hold 45 gals of which I emptied 6 buckets from each.
Lets to the math:
6 times 1.5 equals 9 gals
This means I save approximately 18 gallons each time I use reclaimed water of which not paying the local city utilities.
The advantage having two rain barrels I can water both sides of each house from each.
