Blair, Thanks for bringing this data to our attention. Somewhere along the way I read that just about any technology has a 35 to 40 year maturation process before it is found in a broad spectrum of products. The example there was the transistor. it would appear that this technology has come of age.

What you need to know before installing a rainwater harvest system

What you need to know before installing a rainwater harvest system

 Water is vital to life and is such a precious naturalresource that it makes sense to collect every drop of rain and re-cycle greywater and back-washed pool water. Infact you can reduce your water bill by as much as 90% by harvesting rain...

Great Buzz. I feel this will be a must for everyone soon. I doubt water service will ever be a deregulated service because it is an essence of life. If a system could controls the essence of life, it could in-turn control the world.
But rain-collecting is bypassing this system and going straight to a source of water. So another note to be aware of when collecting rain water is governments are now trying to call "Rain" their property. "It fell in our territory, so you can not collect it, or you must report if you collect it and how much, ect." An associate of mine must rent certified rain collecting barrels. They are basically a tax on the water. He said he can make the tanks himself, but if they are caught without certified tanks their is a fine.
