Go Green with Rain Barrels for Gutters – Conserve Water at Home

Apex Exteriors can now install a brilliant range of rain barrels to help you conserve water at home. Rain barrels are installed directly onto existing gutter systems and can revolutionize the water consumption of a property, as well as benefiting the environment in a number of other ways.

Rain barrels are above ground systems that collect the water that runs off the roof and into the guttering system. Instead of running down the downspout and straight into drains, rainwater collects in a barrel so it can be used at a later date. Common garden rain barrels can store about 55 gallons of water, although the design and size of the barrels do vary.

Most barrels are constructed with two holes, one at the top of the barrel to provide an overflow and one at the bottom of the barrel to make the water easy to access. While the system may seem very simple, it can take a standard guttering system and turn it into an eco-friendly system that’ll greatly benefit your home and the environment.

The Positive Impact of Rain Barrels on Gutters

Gutters are designed to carry rainwater away from a property so it can drain away safely without causing any damage to a home. A rain barrel can have a very positive impact on this process, as it limits the amount of water that a home is sending straight into the sewage system.

Instead of sending rainwater rushing off to the sewage system, which can lead to contaminated water ending up in rivers, rain barrels offer a much more natural way to dispose of the water. As the water from the barrel is used in the garden, it drains naturally into the soil, conserving fresh water and reducing the demands on the sewage system.

The Benefits of Rain Barrels for Gutters

If you’ve never considered having a rain barrel installed before, then you may not realize just what you’re missing out on! Here are some of the top benefits of improving your gutters with an eco-friendly rain barrel:

☑ Practicality

Having water on-tap outdoors is incredibly convenient. Not only does having a rain barrel mean that you’ll always have a useable source of water outdoors after it rains, but during a drought, or when there are restrictions on water-use, you’ll have water on hand for your garden.

☑ Property Enhancement

A rain barrel can help to keep your garden beautiful, but it can also be a beautiful addition to your property exterior. Rain barrels come in a wide variety of types and styles to enhance the look of any outdoor space.

☑ Eco-Conscious

For the eco-conscious homeowner, a rain barrel is a must-have addition. Rain barrels lower runoff pollution, which limits the damage caused to rivers and lakes; they reduce reliance on fresh water, which is very energy-intensive to create; and they help to prevent soil erosion, by decreasing rain runoff.

☑ Saves Money

Hundreds, if not thousands, of gallons of water can be saved by using rainwater for many tasks around the house. The lower the amount of water that you use from the tap for these jobs, the more money you’ll save on your water bills.

☑ Multiple Applications

Rainwater is perfectly adequate for a large number of applications around the home, that many people currently rely on fresh water for. While you can’t drink rain barrel water, you can use it for:

☑ Washing your car

☑ Watering the garden

☑ Cleaning outdoor surfaces

☑ Pressure washing
