We completed our greenhouse and shed at the end of last season...we capture rain from our shed's roof in our water contain system, which is made up of six 55 gal barrels all interconnected. The barrel's lids have large holes which are covered by screen, this simple design enable the water to falls from the roof into the barrels. We also added a water level sight gauge, spigot and an air admittance tube. Rain water is used for daily greenhouse watering. We also have solar security lights and working to add solar panels to power our Ryobi battery chargers.
