DIY 1,100 Gallon Rainwater Harvesting & Collection System | LDS Prepper

http://youtu.be/girnk6N1n9Q

This is the best IBC tote rainwater harvesting system I have seen or built. You may consider this instead of a 55 gallon rain barrel. This inexpensive system will hold 1,100 gallons of rain water. I capture 1,650 gallons of water off of my room with 1" of rainfall. This system is for my daughters house in Idaho where she needs to drain the IBC totes in the winter and keep rain from filling them. If you want to capture rain water check out this and my other designs in my playlist.
